Book: Aerothermodynamics of Aircraft Engine Components by Gordon C. Oates
This book was conceived as a fundamental text and reference for advanced engineering students and practicing engineers. It will, we hope, particularly interest and inform advanced students planning to expand their understanding beyond what they would normally attain in senior or first-year graduate classes. In addition, we hope and expect that engineers planning on embarking upon research will find these writings a solid foundation from which to initiate their own programs.
This book complements a preceding volume in the AIAA Education Series, Aerothermodynamics of Gas Turbine and Rocket Propulsion, by expanding upon the fundamentals and introducing advanced material leading to identification of the research issues of the day. Each chapter is written by an expert in the given specialty. Because of the advanced nature and complexity of the material, only minor efforts have been made to standardize on notation. Taken in total, the book presents, we believe, a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of the major aircraft engine components.
