In this textbook, the authors show that a few fundamental principles can provide students of mechanical and aeronautical engineering with a deep understanding of all modes of aircraft and spacecraft propulsion. The book also demonstrates how these fundamental principles can lead directly to useful quantitative assessments of performance as well as possibilities for improvement. The second edition provides a wide range of new illustrative material on modern aircraft and rocket engines. The author s have also improved their explanations of pertinent physical phenomena and have introduced preliminary design procedures in this edition.

This is the fourth book of an ongoing series notes on the subject of novel polymode relativistic propulsion methods. The author has many additional thoughts and formulations to express on this subject. It is hoped that the careful or even casual reader of this book will be interested in the series of books yet to be published. The contents of this book include explicit and detailed expressions along with simple abstractive functional notation. The long-form expressions include numerical analysis type computational algorithms from which computer programs can be easily derived by those skilled in current art code writing for physics simulations. In this book, I present additional propulsion modes that are not covered in Volumes 1, 2 and 3. These additional modes are applicable for both the Light-String Sails and the Monolithic Sails covered in Part 1 A and Part 1 B, respectively. Also note that bold red font is used for especially important text passages useful for interpreting the meaning of the formulations and other important aspects of the methods proposed herein. Specifically, I have added new modalities including those involving conjectural energy production using degenerate matter by ad hoc means of Pauli Exclusion Principle suppression as well as propulsive thrust mechanisms based on one-way efficient thermal diodes operable at very high thermal powers and thermal imbalances between a cooler bow relative to the temperature of the forwardly incident radiation. Multiple propulsion methods may be applied in one spacecraft. Multi-modal propulsion can be very beneficial for craft meant to travel cosmic distances in space and forward in time. Multimode propulsion is likely needed for such lengthy journeys because of unpredictable mass-energy distributions in the interstellar and intergalactic medium. The absolute and relative density distribution patterns and mass-energy fractions of fermionic and bosonic species as well as in the background electric, magnetic, and gravitational field energy densities might best be navigable through multi-mode propulsion methods and/or options. Such multimodality can include arbitrary, serial and/or parallel applications of two or more modes of propulsion.

This book is a lengthy and very serious, highly mathematical, treatment of novel types of relativistic space-sail craft. Numerous and detailed but abstract numerical analysis types of formulas are included throughout most of the text. The reader of this book is asked to keep an open mind with an awareness of the numerous stated caveats for the proposed systems to operate. Individuals and groups desiring a highly mathematical treatment of novel combinations of propulsion modes in one spacecraft will likely enjoy the book. This is the third volume of an ongoing series of notes on the subject of novel polymode relativistic propulsion methods. The author has many additional thoughts and formulations to express on this subject. It is hoped that the careful reader of this book will be interested in the series of books yet to be published. The contents of this book include explicit and detailed expressions along with simple abstractive functional notation. The long-form expressions include numerical analysis types of computational algorithms from which computer programs can be easily derived by those skilled in current art code writing for physics simulations. Such systems are conjectured to capture as much background real and zero-point energy as possible as well as the various known and proposed mass forms within the universe. Additional subject matter including formulations for hyperspatial mass and energy extraction has been added as well as formulaic scenarios for several additional space propulsion modes. The nature of the propulsive power terms in the formulas presented herein theoretically would enable the craft to experience runaway acceleration or negative drives, if only the craft could be suitably shielded and cloaked. A mildly mathematical and philosophical treatment has been added on the nature and meaning of exactly light-speed travel for inertial reference frames. The subject degrees of freedom can enable gainful craft accelerations under a variety of background conditions. Such modality can come in handy as the universe ages and/or the mass-density, volumetric distribution patterns, change as the universe continues to evolve and age.

The concepts for highly relativistic spacecraft presented in this book rely heavily on materials that have not yet been demonstrated. Thus, the reader is asked to keep an open mind while studying the contents presented herein. Readers of all sub-fields of theoretical and applied physics will appreciate that high level of mathematicalization and the specific computational case studies of plausible systems. Much effort has gone into addressing and acknowledging the numerous caveats for the proposed systems to function as conjectured. One of the themes of this book is the possibility of an effectively "free lunch" in terms of propulsion system energy acquisition. Accordingly, scenarios involving the capture of many forms of natural and artificial background energy are described as applicable to extremely relativistic vehicles having a small if not unitary starting mass-ratio. It is hoped that those who enjoy extreme and exotic scenarios of inertial or special relativistic spacecraft will enjoy this text and gain a deeper understanding of how the formulations of Special Relativity can help pave the way throughout the Milky Way Galaxy and further abroad. This is the first of an ongoing series notes on the subject of novel polymode relativistic propulsion methods. The author has many additional thoughts and formulations to express on this subject. It is hoped that the careful or even casual reader of this book will be interested in the series of books yet to be published. The contents of this book include explicit and detailed expressions along with simple abstractive functional notation.

Readers of this book will be able to: utilize the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to analyze aircraft engines, understand the common gas turbine aircraft propulsion systems and be able to determine the applicability of each, perform system studies of aircraft engine systems for specified flight conditions, perform preliminary aerothermal design of turbomachinery components, and conceive, analyze, and optimize competing preliminary designs for conventional and unconventional missions. Early coverage of cycle analysis provides a systems perspective, and offers context for the chapters on turbomachinery and components Broader coverage than found in most other books - including coverage of propellers, nuclear rockets, and space propulsion - allows analysis and design of more types of propulsion systems In depth, quantitative treatments of the components of jet propulsion engines provides the tools for evaluation and component matching for optimal system performance Worked examples and end of chapter exercises provide practice for analysis, preliminary design, and systems integration
