MAE 4262: ROCKETS AND MISSION ANALYSIS Fall 2010, Tuesday and Thursday 11:00-12:15, Room: S110 Course Website: http://my.fit.edu/~dkirk/4262 Daniel R. Kirk Email: dkirk@fit.edu Phone: (321) 674-7622 Office: Olin Engineering Center 215 Office Hours: Tuesday 1-4 pm and Wednesday 10-12 pm Overview This course addresses rocket propulsion, with the primary emphasis being on chemical rockets. Aspects of fluid dynamics, compressible flows, equilibrium thermodynamics, heat transfer, and combustion, which govern of rocket-propulsion applications, will be covered. The course will emphasize theoretical concepts, as well as their application to solving basic problems in rocket science. Text: P.G. Hill and C.R. Peterson, Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Propulsion , Addison- Wesley, Second Edition (1992). The course will also rely heavily on class notes as well as supplemental references. Course and Learning Objectives: Rocket Propulsion is an application based course which uses physics and engineering principles to design and analyze propulsion systems. At the conclusion of the course, each student should
