Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics ASE 376K - Propulsion Spring 2010 SYLLABUS Unique Number: 13990 Instructor: Armand J. Chaput WRW 201B, 512-471-4258 ajchaput@mail.utexas.edu Time: T Th 9:30-11:00 a.m. Location: WRW 113 Teaching Assistant.: (1) Marshall Albright, WRW 216, Office hours, Tu & Th 11- 12;30 (2) TBD Web Page: BlackBoard at https://courses.utexas.edu, 10F Propulsion Catalog Description: Aspects of one-dimensional compressible flow, including isentropic flow and normal shocks; effects of friction and combustion; analysis and design of rockets and air-breathing engines, including performance and cycle analysis; flow in nozzles, diffusers, compressors, and turbines; combustion chamber processes and propellants. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Course Objectives: Provide understanding of propulsion system performance fundamentals to include basic equations, control volume analysis and use to internal aerodynamic and thermodynamic relationship to model cycle behavior and performance. Prerequisites: Aerospace Engineering 362K with a grade of at least C. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Should Have Before Entering This Course: Working knowledge of calculus and differential equations. Ability to: (1) solve dynamics problems using Newton's laws of motion; (2) work with simple chemical reactions; (3) solve problems using ideal gas relations; (4) do thermodynamic cycle analysis especially to work with (i.e. draw and understand) temperature-entropy and enthalpy-entropy diagrams; (5) do control volume analysis of fluid flows for mass, momentum, and energy equations. You should know how to use a computer spreadsheet to perform cycle analyses or write a computer program or Matlab script to achieve the same objective – any operating system and spreadsheet program may be used. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Gain from this Course (Learning Outcomes): Ability to: (1) solve simple one-dimensional compressible flow, (2) determine first-order performance of ramjets, turbojets, turbofans, rockets; (3) analyze and design compressor and turbine stages, inlets, and nozzles. If you don't have them already, this course will help you develop effective problem-solving skills. Impact On Subsequent Courses In Curriculum:
