Last offered Spring 2022
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in mechanical engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 0 to 4 undergraduate hours. 0 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary to a maximum of 9 hours.
This course will provide students with a practical understanding of complex energy conversion phenomena in scramjets and the application laser and optical diagnostics for its study. The students will be exposed to basic spectroscopy principles as well as developments in the latest optical measurement techniques that are used to study high speed propulsion systems. Special focus will be placed on application of both single point and 2-D imaging diagnostics for study of hypersonic aircraft engines and supersonic combustion phenomena.
