Contact Hours 2
Credit Points (CP) 4
Language English
Time and Location Fridays from 2:25 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Online)
Syllabus The course consists of lectures by experts which present different important aspects of space propulsion technology such as engine transients, combustion dynamics, rotating detonation engines, launcher and mission design and architecture. A focus is put on the variety of disciplines and their interaction which are all important for successful space transportation systems and therefore demonstrates the multi-disciplinarity of this domain.
The lectures will be hold by internal and external experts by online presentations. A focus will be on technical challenges of space propulsion applications. Specific questions may be discussed with the lecturers after each lecture. Through the talks to experts from the field, the students will get in contact with current technical issues and how these are handled in industry, agencies and research institutes.
Prerequisities for Participation Space Propulsion and Space Transportation Systems
Literature Lecture notes will be provided electronically (pdf).
