Export citation

This book is for undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in gas turbine propulsion systems. The book has substantial chapters on the major engine components as well as dealing with engine cycles. A particular strength of this book is that each chapter contains within it additional references and suggested readings, review questions and problems. These are likely to be of particular value to students undertaking a formal course of study in the subject of gas turbine propulsion.

For the undergraduate student, the book has a significant emphasis on technology, perhaps beyond the scope and need of most undergraduates. Equally, the underlying fundamentals are not readily apparent and therefore would need to be supported by selected references identified by the author.

For the postgraduate student, the book needs to be seen as a support text to be consulted along with a couple of other recent well-established texts in this field. This is inevitable given the complexity of the subject.

Many of the problems suggested at the end of chapters are interesting and appropriate, particularly for postgraduate researchers.
