Aircraft Propulsion: Pistons, Turbines, Propellers & Thrust, introduces all aspects of aircraft propulsion from the principles of power and thrust to the technical details of various types of engines.
The engine is arguably the most important component of the aircraft. Performance is affected by the aerodynamics of the airframe and the "thrust versus fuel consumption" from the engines. David Robson's book takes an in-depth look at the function, operation and performance of four-stroke piston engines, radial engines, superchargers, turbochargers and propellers. Readers will gain a thorough understanding of aircraft power and propulsion systems, as well as engine efficiency, application, and reliability.
Aircraft Propulsion: Pistons, Turbines, Propellers & Thrust is useful for pilots, aircraft owners and maintenance technicians alike. Full-color illustrations throughout the text help explain complex concepts in an easily-grasped, straightforward manner. The table of contents and index are hyperlinked, making navigation of this 263-page ebook quick and easy.
