Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks Space Propulsion 1 as Supplementary Course (MW0223, deprecated) The lecture "Space Propulsion 1" is hold in the summer term. The fundamentals of rocket propulsion are conveyed using the example of commercial space transportation systems. Apart from basic terms of orbit mechanics, important characteristics of rocket engines are presented in detail. A main focus is the group of liquid rocket engines due to its high importance in aerospace. Hereby, propellants, construction and design, thrust chamber components and turbo machinery is discussed. Special features of auxiliary and satellite engines are addressed separately. Furthermore important characteristics of solid rocket propulsion, hybrid propulsion, ramjets and electric propulsion as well as nuclear propulsion are presented. Finally, an insight in actual rocket engine development as well as business environment and structures of european aerospace industry is given.
