Gas Turbine Propulsion Systems

Major changes in gas turbine design, especially in the design and complexity of engine control systems, have led to the need for an up-to-date, systems-oriented treatment of gas turbine propulsion. Pulling together all of the systems and subsystems associated with gas turbine engines in aircraft and marine applications, this book discusses the latest developments in the field.

Chapters include:

  • Aircraft engine systems functional overview
  • Marine propulsion systems
  • Fuel control and power management systems
  • Engine lubrication and scavenging systems
  • Nacelle and ancillary systems
  • Engine certification
  • Unique engine systems
  • Future development in gas turbine propulsion systems
  • Written from a wholly practical perspective by two authors with long careers in the gas turbine and fuel systems industries, this book provides an excellent resource for project and program managers in the gas turbine engine community, the aircraft OEM community, and tier 1 equipment suppliers in Europe and the United States. It also offers a useful reference for students and researchers in aerospace engineering.
