Abstract : 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 (Dayton, Ohio) in early December 2010. The present lecture deals with the overall system analysis of scramjets, considering what is the optimum number of engine modules; comparison between fixed or movable geometry; effect of engine mass and size to on-trajectory-performance of an air-breathing space launcher. The results are based on published information, and additional details, presented to the lecturers, can be found in the references.
