The role and the fundamental of the rocket, which is used for many space projects, are lectured first. Various rockets and rocket engines in the world are introduced and the characteristics of them are shown. And the overview of the system, subsystems and performance for the rocket engine, especially the liquid-propellant rocket engine(ex. the first stage engine LE-7A of Japanese rocket H-2A), are studied.
Students will have the knowledge and techniques related to DP2.
The target of this course is to understand the concept and basic designs of the system, subsystem and performance for the rocket and the liquid-propellant rocket engine.
Evaluation will be done referring reports.
|Textbook||No text is used.|
|References||Materials including figures, pictures and movies are indicated on slide.|
These will be presented by LMS.
Preparation (about 1.5 hour);The materials used in the lesson will be presented beforehand through LMS, so please read them and do research by yourself which you do not understand and deepen your knowledge about rocket. Please also summarize what you do not understand in a notebook and ask questions by writing on a paper distributed every lesson.
Review (about 1.5 hour); The materials used in the lesson are presented by LMS, so please use them for review about function, performance, and formulas equation of rocket. And also answer of exercises will be presented by LMS, so please become able to perform the calculation.
The contents of the lesson may be changed according to the progress.
