Introduction to Airborne Radar (Aerospace & Radar Systems)

Available until April 10th!
Introduction to Airborne Radar is the revision of the classic book privately published by Hughes Aircraft Company in 1983. Lavishly produced in full color, the book was quite unlike any commercially published radar book produced by the major technical publishers. The combination of clear, understandable writing and the unparalleled illustrations established the text-reference as a 'must-have' for engineers, technicians, pilots, and even sales and marketing people within the radar and aerospace industry. The book was authored by veteran Hughes engineer and Technical Manager George W. Stimson, a publications specialist. Individual chapters were thoroughly reviewed by the appropriate experts within the Hughes Radar Systems Group. The book was initially available 1983-1987 only to those within the Hughes family: employees and customers, primarily the military. Restriction was lifted in 1987. Hughes went through three printings and 40,000 copies 1983-1993, mostly by word-of-mouth testimonials and demand. Upon retirement from Hughes, George Stimson successfully negotiated for the rights to the book and made an agreement with SciTech Publishing to do a major revision of the text to update it. The resulting Second Edition has been overwhelmingly positive and a best-seller. Second Edition The revision is extensive: thirteen entirely new chapters cover the technological advances over the fifteen years since publication, two chapters considered obsolete have been deleted entirely, three chapters are extensively rewritten and updated, two chapters have been given new sections, and fourteen chapters have been given minor tweaks, corrections, and polishing. The book has grown from 32 chapters to 44 chapters in 584 efficiently-designed pages. Efforts have been made to bring more even-handed coverage to radars developed outside of Hughes Aircraft, while older and less important Hughes radars have been deleted or abbreviated. Chapter 44 catalogs many of the cutting edge radars in functioning aircraft and near-service aircraft in early stages of production. The book's appeal is to a diverse audience: from military pilots and radar officers eager to gain a sound technical understanding of the complex systems that their lives depend upon, on up through technicians, marketing, and sales people, to the radar system design specialists, who may 'know all that stuff' but who deeply admire the expression and thus use the book to teach others who have questions. The market encompasses companies directly involved in the radar business and those on the periphery, college professors of engineering and physics themselves, along with students in aviation, aeronautics, and electromagnetics and radar courses. The cross-disciplinary and multi-level demand for the book shows that the book should not be pigeon-holed as just a radar book for electrical engineers. Virtually anybody with a knowledge of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics will be able to read and absorb most of the material.

Whirl flutter is the aeroelastic phenomenon caused by the coupling of aircraft propeller aerodynamic forces and the gyroscopic forces of the rotating masses (propeller, gas turbine engine rotor). It may occur on the turboprop, tilt-prop-rotor or rotorcraft aircraft structures. Whirl Flutter of Turboprop Aircraft Structures explores the whirl flutter phenomenon, including theoretical and practical as well as analytical and experimental aspects of the matter. The first introductory part gives a general overview regarding aeroelasticity, followed by the physical principle and the occurrence of whirl flutter in aerospace practice. The next section deals with experiment research including earlier activities performed, particularly from the sixties, as well as recent developments. Subsequent chapters discuss analytical methods such as basic and advanced linear models, and non-linear and CFD based methods. Remaining chapters summarize certification issues including regulation requirements, a description of possible certification approaches and several examples of aircraft certification from the aerospace practice. Finally, a database of relevant books and reports is provided.provides complex information of turboprop aircraft whirl flutter phenomenonpresents both theoretical and practical (certification related) issuespresents experimental research as well as analytical models (basic and advanced) of matterincludes both early-performed works and recent developmentscontains a listing of relevant books and reports

Aircraft Engines and Gas Turbines

Aircraft Engines and Gas Turbines

by Jack L. Kerrebrock (Author)
List Price: $40.00  

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

This text on aircraft engines and turbines presents the engine as a complete system, with emphasis on the performance of the engine and its dependence on the major design parameters and physical limitations. The system is described at three levels, first by ideal cycle and analysis, then by more refined cycle analysis, and finally as an assembly of components. At this last level the behavior of each component is described in terms of the fluid mechanical processes, chemistry, and mechanical stresses which limit its performance. The factors which control the engine's noise production and chemical pollutant emission are also addressed. Special emphasis is placed on the past, present and likely future evolution of the aircraft engine in response to the requirements for better performance, lower noise and reduced pollution.

A clear appreciation of all these factors requires basic preparation in fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, chemistry and thermodynamics. Clearly, no single text can review all these: an undergraduate preparation is assumes. The application of these several disciplines to a complex system should help the students to appreciate their interrelationship as well as to understand the engine itself.

With the rapid advances that have occurred since the large-scale introduction of gas turbine power plants into military aircraft in the 1950s and into commercial aircraft in the 1960s, it has become necessary to make a clear understanding of the characteristics of these devices accessible at the undergraduate level. Such understanding is essential both for entrance to professional work in industry and as preparation for graduate study. The book will also prove valuable as a reference for engineers already working in the field.

Although the main focus is on aircraft propulsion, the text will also be useful to those interested in automotive and stationary applications of gas turbines. These applications are treated at the level of cycle analysis, and much of the discussion of components is directly applicable.

The eleven chapters of the text take up basic definitions and concepts, trends in ideal cycle analysis, quantitative cycle analysis, nonrotating components, compressors, turbines, the structure of turbomachinery, component matching and engine performance, aircraft engine noise, hypersonic engines, and propulsion systems analysis. Each chapter includes problems and references.
