Alternative Title

On board energy management for high speed aerospace vehicles: system and component level energy based optimization and analysis

Abstract

"This dissertation addresses in detail three main topics for advancing the state-of-the-art in hypersonic aerospace systems: 1) the development of a synergistic method based on entropy generation in order to analyze, evaluate, and optimize vehicle performance, 2) the development and analysis of innovative unconventional flow-control methods for increasing vehicle performance utilizing entropy generation as a fundamental descriptor and predictor of performance, and 3) an investigation of issues arising when evaluating (predicting) actual flight vehicle performance using ground test facilities"--Abstract, leaf iii.
