This report provides a critical review of toxicologic, epidemiologic, and other relevant data on jet-propulsion fuel 8, a type of fuel in wide use by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), and an evaluation of the scientific basis of DODâ€™s interim permissible exposure level of 350 mg/m3
Volume XII of the High Speed Aerodynamics and Jet Propulsion series. Partial Contents: Historical development of jet propulsion; basic principles of jet propulsion; analyses of the various types of jet propulsion engines including the turbojet, the turboprop, the ramjet, and intermittent jets, as well as solid and liquid propellant rocket engines and the ramrocket. Another section deals with jet driven rotors. The final sections discuss the use of atomic energy in jet propulsion and the future prospects of jet propulsion. Originally published in 1959. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Combustion Chambers for Jet Propulsion Engines focuses on the design of combustion chambers for turbo-jet and ramjet engines, including reheat systems. This compilation, which is a training manual for the combustion chamber course held in the Moscow Aeronautical Institute, provides a general presentation of the basic elements of the process of operation, characteristics, and design of combustion chambers. This manual is divided into two parts. Part One discusses the elements of chemical kinetics and the theory of combustion of a homogeneous mixture in gas streams. The second part is devoted to the thermodynamics of the combustion chamber; aerodynamic and thermal losses; construction of the combustion chamber; and description of the operating process. The problem concerning the effect of losses in combustion chambers on the characteristics of jet propulsion engines is also elaborated in this text. This publication is valuable to aeronautical and combustion engineering students.
Both Jet-engine propelled aircraft and long-range rockets were first successfully flown during World War II. This led 10 rapid post-war improvements in both, and within two decades we had supersonic airplanes, communication satellites, and trips to the moon. Unmanned probes to Mars and the outer planets followed, as well as the International Space Station. The technology behind these advances is described, along with short biographies of key pioneers. Problems at high Mach numbers are reviewed. Possible future developments are discussed. Mora technical details, including mathematics, are in an appendix.
