This undergraduate textbook offers a unique introduction to steady flight and performance for fixed-wing aircraft from a twenty-first-century flight systems perspective. Emphasizing the interplay between mathematics and engineering, it fully explains the fundamentals of aircraft flight and develops the basic algebraic equations needed to obtain the conditions for gliding flight, level flight, climbing and descending flight, and turning flight. It covers every aspect of flight performance, including maximum and minimum air speed, maximum climb rate, minimum turn radius, flight ceiling, maximum range, and maximum endurance. Steady Aircraft Flight and Performance features in-depth case studies of an executive jet and a general aviation propeller-driven aircraft, and uses MATLAB to compute and illustrate numerous flight performance measures and flight envelopes for each. Requiring only sophomore-level calculus and physics, it also includes a section on translational flight dynamics that makes a clear connection between steady flight and flight dynamics, thereby providing a bridge to further study. Offers the best introduction to steady aircraft flight and performance Provides a comprehensive treatment of the full range of steady flight conditions Covers steady flight performance and flight envelopes, including maximum and minimum air speed, maximum climb rate, minimum turn radius, and flight ceiling Uses mathematics and engineering to explain aircraft flight Features case studies of actual aircraft, illustrated using MATLAB Seamlessly bridges steady flight and translational flight dynamics

Das Fachgebiet "Flugmechanik" wird vielfach in "Flugleistungen" und "Flugeigen schaften" untergliedert, weil in diesen beiden Teilgebieten sowohl die Fragestellun gen als auch die Methoden zu ihrer Lösung von recht unterschiedlicher Art sind. Dies führt auch dazu, daß in der Industrie die F?chabteilungen für Flugleistungen und Flug eigenschaften häufig verschiedenen Bereichen zugeordnet sind und auch in der For schung die Teilgebiete in verschiedenen Instituten behandelt werden. Während mehrere ausgezeichnete Werke über Flugeigenschaften (meist in englischer Sprache) erschienen sind, ist uns kein modernes und praxisbezogenes Buch über Flugleistungen bekannt. Die wenige verfügbare Literatur enthält so einfache Ansätze für die Polare und den Antrieb, daß die meisten der heute fliegenden Flugzeuge da mit nicht mehr hinreichend genau beschrieben werden können. Grundlage zu diesem Buch stellten die einschlägigen Vorlesungen der Verfasser dar, wobei der Stoff jedoch wesentlich erweitert und vertieft wurde. Dabei zeigte sich, daß bei der Berücksichtigung realistischer Polaren und Triebwerkskennfehler ganz erhebliche mathematische Schwierigkeiten auftreten, die die Herleitung allgemein gültiger Lösungen zumindest erschweren, oft aber auch unmöglich machen. Aller dings ließen sich in vielen Fällen vertretbare Vereinfachungen einführen, die dann zu geschlossenen Lösungen hinreichender Genauigkeit führten. Durch die Einführung einer dimensionslosen Betrachtungsweise war es schließlich möglich, viele Zusam menhänge in geschlossener Form anzugeben, die bis dahin noch niemals formelmäs sig erfaßt wurden.

This text provides an introduction to gas turbine engines and jet propulsion for aerospace or mechanical engineers. The text is divided into four parts: introduction to aircraft propulsion; basic concepts and one-dimensional/gas dynamics; parametric (design point) and performance (off-design) analysis of air breathing propulsion systems; and analysis and design of major gas turbine engine components (fans, compressors, turbines, inlets, nozzles, main burners, and afterburners). Design concepts are introduced early (aircraft performance in introductory chapter) and integrated throughout. Written with extensive student input on the design of the book, the book builds upon definitions and gradually develops the thermodynamics, gas dynamics, and gas turbine engine principles.
