To give knowledge of basic thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in order to understand how thrust and shaft power are generated in aircraft power plants, with emphasis on turbine engines for aeroplanes. This knowledge will enable basic performance analysis of aircraft engines. Together with the course on Aircraft Systems Technology, this course gives a comprehensive overview of turbine and piston engine propulsion systems and their installation.
