I am a first year Mechanical Engineering student and I found this course amazingly instructive and deep in terms of how complex jet engines are simplified with the main aim of giving learners the opportunity to comprehend the tools and techniques used in the development of Scramjet engine. The course is designed for students from any background with basic knowledge of physical sciences to be able to understand the complexity of such engines in a simplified yet detailed manner. Thumbs up to all the lecturers at the University of Queensland. Hoping to see more courses like this.

Very good course. I loved it!

Prior experience: Previous work with compressible flow and hypersonic flow field analysis in CFD. The course is very thorough in the way it introduces the concepts of hypersonic flight and scramjet vehicles step by step, building upon each section in order to achieve its objective: the project (simplified, of course) of a scramjet engine in all its components. This allows the student to grasp the behavior of the flow fields at each component of a scramjet and see the bigger picture of the entire engine. The course was definitely well structured, with no hesitation to develop pertinent equations and analyzing its components, showing well the physical implications of the mathematical formulation. I certainly recommend this course to anyone in the field and also to anyone who is interested in hypersonics, but without prior experience.

 Wann:
Freie Auswahl
Understand flight at speeds greater than Mach 5 and discover how to analyse the performance of a scramjet.
Voraussetzungen: This is an open course and anyone can choose to participate and learn about hypersonics. If, however, you want to delve into the field deeply, it is recommended that you have a good understanding of introductory concepts in Calculus, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. These will enable you to fully participate in the course, particularly the assessment tasks. The following online courses could be useful for you to access before you start to get yourself up to speed: Differential Equations (MIT Opencourse): Unit 1: Basic DE’s, Linear ODE’s, Integrating Factors Calculus...

A flow is called hypersonic if the Mach number is greater than 5. This means that the flow speed is more than five times the speed of sound. In air at room temperature, the speed of sound is around 340 m/s, so a Mach 5 flow would have a flow speed of 1.7 km/s or just over 6,000 km/h. When a rocket launches a satellite into earth orbit, when a probe enters the atmosphere of another planet or when an aircraft is propelled by a supersonic combustion ramjet engine (a scramjet), hypersonic flows are encountered. Hypersonics – from Shock Waves to Scramjets introduces the basic concepts associated with flight at speeds greater than Mach 5 and takes students to the stage where they can analyse the performance of a scramjet engine that might be used in a future accesstospace system.
