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...

introduction to aerospace propulsion

Introduction & Classification of Propulsion Systems

Propulsion: Propulsion is the act to drive a propulsive vehicle forward by producing thrust in flight. Thrust force is developed based on the Newton’s laws of motion. Propulsive System: It is a machine (engine) that produces thrust to push an...
