Propulsion and Combustion

Propulsion and Combustion

Propulsion and Combustion is a branch of engineering devoted to studying and applying physics and chemistry to propel aircraft and spacecraft.

Thrust, which created through propulsion, is the force that moves an aircraft or spacecraft through the air or space, while combustion is the process by which fuel and oxidizer are mixed and ignited to generate energy for the propulsion system. Aerospace Propulsion and Combustion involve the design, development, and operation of propulsion systems that range from small, lightweight engines for aircraft to large, powerful engines for spacecraft. These systems involve various components, including engines, fuel, and control systems.

This field aims to maximize the propulsion system’s efficiency while minimizing its mass, cost, and environmental impact. This includes understanding the chemical and physical processes that occur during combustion and the processes used to reduce emissions.

World-leading academics at the faculty teach the cutting-edge field of electrical engines and propulsion as well.

Key Propulsion and Combustion research areas:

  • Jet Propulsion
