Future Propulsion Systems and Energy Sources in Sustainable Aviation, (PDF) is a comprehensive reference that provides a review of the science and engineering principles that support the concepts of propulsion systems and energy sources in workable air transportation. The author – a noted specialist in the field – examines the impact of air transportation on the environment and analyses alternative jet fuels, hybrid-electric and nuclear propulsion, and power. He also studies modern propulsion for transonic and supersonic-hypersonic aircraft and the effect of propulsion on aircraft design.

Climate change is the main motive for the new technology development in sustainable air transportation. The ebook contains a critical review of gas turbine propulsion and aircraft aerodynamics; followed by an in-depth presentation of aviation’s impact on the environment. Future fuels and energy sources are presented in a separate chapter. Promising technologies in propulsion and energy sources are recognized leading to pathways to sustainable aviation. To ease the utility of the subject, the ebook is accompanied by a website that includes illustrations, and equation files. This important ebook:

  • Explores the impact of air transportation on the environment
  • Includes alternative jet fuels and hybrid-electric propulsion and power
  • Examines the effect of propulsion system integration on aircraft design
  • Discusses modern propulsion for supersonic transonic, and hypersonic aircraft
  • Includes a comprehensive reference to the science and engineering behind propulsion and power in sustainable air transportation

Written for graduate, senior undergraduate students, and engineers in mechanical and aerospace engineering, Future Propulsion Systems and Energy Sources in Sustainable Aviation examine the future of aviation with a guide to sustainable air transportation that contains alternative jet fuels, hybrid-electric propulsion, all-electric and nuclear propulsion.
