Unformatted text preview: flight, the range, the endurance, and the time-to-climb for an aircraft. (homework, quiz, self-assessment) 5. Given mass fractions, and propulsion system performance information, to be able to estimate the range and velocity of single-stage rockets. (homework and quiz, self-assessment) 6. To be able to describe the principal design parameters and constraints that set the performance of gas turbine engines, and to apply ideal-cycle analysis to a gas turbine engine to relate thrust and fuel burn to component-level performance parameters and flight conditions. (homework, quiz, self-assessment) 7. To be able to explain at a level understandable by a high school senior or non-technical person the energy exchange processes that underlie the workings of multistage compressor or turbine, and to be able to use velocity triangles and the Euler Turbine Equation to estimate the performance of a compressor or turbine stage.
