Abstract : The lecture of the RTO-AVT-VKI course HIGH SPEED PROPULSION: ENGINE DESIGN INTEGRATION AND THERMAL MANAGEMENT was given at the Von Karman Institute in September 2010 and in the Wright State University in December 2010. The present lecture was focused first on the estimation of the heat loads on a scramjet or a dual-mode ramjet. Solutions to sustain such high energy are secondly described and the lecture addresses how to combine materials, cooling techniques and system requirements. A simple exercise was proposed to the attendees as an illustrative understanding of regeneratively cooled generic scramjet flying at Mach 7. The results are based on published information, and additional details, presented to the lecturers, can be found in the references.
