Aerothermodynamics of Gas Turbine and Rocket Propulsion – Gordon C. Oates – 3rd Edition


This seminal book on gas turbine technology has been a bestseller since it was first published. It now includes a comprehensive set of software programs that complement the text with problems and design analyses.

Software topics included are atmosphere programs, quasi-one-dimensional flow programs (ideal constant-area heat interaction, adiabatic constant-area flow with friction, rocket nozzle performance, normal shock waves, oblique shock waves), gas turbine programs (engine cycle analysis and engine off-design performance), and rocket combustion programs (Tc and PC given, He and PC given, isentropic expansion).
