This second edition of Cumpsty's self-contained introduction to the aerodynamic and thermodynamic design of modern civil and military jet engines features two engine design projects. The first is for a new large passenger aircraft, and the second for a new fighter aircraft. The text introduces, illustrates and explains the important facets of modern engine design. Thoroughly updated and revised, this edition includes a new appendix on noise control and expanded treatment of combustion emissions.
