Operating Envelope of Flight Vehicles & Engine Operating Limits

Operating Envelope of Flight Vehicles & Engine Operating Limits

Operating Envelope: Flight Vehicles: Each engine type will operate only within a certain range of altitudes and Mach numbers (velocities). Similar limitations in velocity and altitude exist for airframes. It is necessary, therefore, to match airframe and propulsion system capabilities. Figure...
