High-speed Airbreathing Propulsion Design

Advanced ramjet and scramjet engine design made accessible

Tip-to-tail performance analysis

Component-level modeling

Tailored model fidelity

Design-oriented outputs

Compress design cycles,
ignite new ideas, expand analyses

Flexible modeling and analysis

  • Parametric CAD geometry definitions simplify layout changes
  • Tip-to-tail engine flow properties (temperature, pressure, Mach) are reported for each engine design
  • Engine thermal balance assessments provide insight into how the design will integrate with other vehicle systems
  • Component mass estimates contribute to a more complete picture of engine performance
  • Flexible units of measurement (English or SI) offer convenient integration and reporting
