About this Course

Participants in this course will be taught the technological  aspects of aircraft engines, their design, and operation. Additionally, economical parameters and legal issues  of approval will be introduced. Based on the flight mission analysis and other constraints, the methodology and  objective  of  engine  design  will  be  illustrated  taking  into account component  matching  and  aircraft integration.  Furthermore,  participants will learn  to estimate  the  technological  potential  of  advanced propulsion concepts.


What you’ll learn

  • Mission Analysis & requirements Statutory registration regulations
  • Overall design of a jet engine
  • Component design of Compressor, Turbine, Combustion chamber and Nozzle
  • Coupling of Compressor & Turbine with Nozzle
  • Novel concepts (GTF, Oper Rotor, Electrical drives, MEE)
  • Novel thermodynamic cycles (Intercooling, heat exchanger, new fuels)
