A textbook for a two-semester first course in propulsion for engineering majors. Assumes a background in fluid mechanics, including elementary boundary layer theory and thermodynamics; an appendix reviews the necessary one-dimensional steady-flow gas dynamic equations for a perfect gas. Covers the entire range of propulsion systems used in aeronautics and aerospace from piston engines and propellers to rockets. A chapter also considers environmental impacts. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Oregon.
