P.A. HILTON Propulsion
The study of jet propulsion remains an important part of many mechanical engineering and all aeronautical and military studies.
Gas turbines are the most commonly taught aspect of this technology but both ram jets and pulse jets remain of interest particularly given the developments in hypersonic and trans-sonic flight.
Having no moving parts, the two types of engine represent a low capital and maintenance cost alternative or addition to a gas turbine test facility.
