AIAA Online Short Course: Design of Gas Turbine Engines, From Concept to Details

Design of Gas Turbine Engines is a new 32-hour course, delivered in sixteen 2-hour sessions, two per week, that presents an overview of the complete spectrum of the design of aero-propulsion systems and puts each major segment in perspective. It demonstrates how thermodynamic, aerodynamic and structural concepts are turned into hardware and illustrates the extent of current practical design techniques. Initially, gas turbine engines are modeled simply but with sufficient accuracy to enable their geometry and weight to be defined and performance to be estimated not only at a selected design point but also over a broad range of off-design operations. While the general approach has not changed for many years, it is no surprise that our capabilities have improved significantly. With practice, what were once considered to be “preliminary design” activities may now be extended considerably, enabling project schedules to be significantly accelerated with increased confidence.

Dates: April 19 – June 9, 2023 (8 Weeks, 16 Classes, 32 Total Hours)

  • Every Wednesday and Friday at 1300-1500 Eastern Time (all sessions will be recorded and available for replay; course notes will be available for download)
  • The new online course covers the complete spectrum of the Gas Turbine Engine design process
  • All students will receive an AIAA Certificate of Completion at the end of the course
