Aircraft Propulsion - Level 3
In this section we cover materials related to propulsion, the means of moving the aircraft forward through the air. We include materials on the types of engines that have been and are being used, how thrust is calculated for jet engines and for propeller-driven engines. We will cover with more detail how gas turbines work and the design requirements of the different parts of the gas turbine.
