Shows how basic principles may be used to predict the performance of aircraft engines and rockets and to illuminate their design limitations. Stresses the application of the reader's theoretical knowledge to several real devices, pointing toward the engineering objectives of propulsion, and provides a method of examining the potential of new concepts.
