Targeted Training Programme On Pulse Detonation Engine and Air-Breathing Propulsion Technologies, 2017
The course gives brief introduction to the design and development of pulse detonation engines and air-breathing propulsion systems. Various topics ranging from the mission requirements for hypersonic flight vehicles, basic cycle designs and performance analysis methodology, design and development procedures, complex component interactions, recent computational and experimental results, major national air-breathing programs was covered along with some historical prospectives. Prof. Frank Lu, one of the most accomplished academician from the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering, University of Texas at Arlington, USA conducted this targeted training programme. The program was held during the 3-4 July 2017 in the Aerospace Department, Indian Institute of Science in association with Society for Shock Wave Research for the benefit of scientists and students.
