Liquid propellant propulsion systems

OBJECTIVE :

This training will enable learners to acquire the general methods of design and calculation of liquid propellant propulsion systems.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes:

  • 10 x 1.5-hours lectures
  • 3 x 3-hours instructor-led exercises
  • 2 visits

GENERAL APPROACH :

This course presents the various systems used to generate a propulsive force from propellants stored in a liquid state and focuses on the physical phenomena, the related issues, the orders of magnitude of the parameters and the principles of dimensioning.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Advanced

The course is open to engineers with a good basic scientific background including the mechanical, thermal and aerodynamic fields.
