High-Energy-Density Fuels for Advanced Propulsion
Covers the theory and practice of designing, synthesizing, and improving the performance of fuels This book provides readers with the fundamentals on high-energy-density fuels and their potential in advanced aerospace propulsion. It comprehensively and systematically demonstrates both the theory and practice of creating, processing, and refining the performance of fuels, all while connecting the past, present, and future of fuel chemistry and technology. It covers a wide range of fuels including polycyoalkane fuels, strained fuels, alky-diamondoid fuels, and hypergolic and nanofluid fuels derived from fossil and biomass. It also describes the important aspects of high-energy-density (HED) fuels, including molecular design, synthesis route, physiochemical properties, and their application in improving aircraft performance. In addition, the book features vivid schematics and illustrations throughout to enhance accessibility to the relevant theory and technologies. High-Energy-Density Fuels for Advanced Propulsion begins by introducing readers to the topic before delving into the development history and basics of aerospace fuels. It discusses the general properties and requirements of aerospace fuels, as well as the overall development. The book also covers the design and synthesis of green hypergolic liquid fuels, the formulation and synthesis of gelled fuels, the combustion properties of fuels and the methods for improving them, and more. A much-needed, complete overview of an important topic on fuel chemistry and technology for a range of fuels, including aerospace propulsion technology Provides readers with inspirations for new development of advanced aerospace fuels Discusses how HED fuels can improve the performance of aircraft Offers chapters covering fuels such as polycyoalkane, strained, alky-diamondoid, hypergolic, and nanofluid fuels High-Energy-Density Fuels for Advanced Propulsion is an excellent resource for those working in the fields of fuel chemistry, fuel technology, and aerospace propulsion technology, and is an ideal reference book for researchers, engineers, and students majoring in chemical science and engineering, mechanical engineering, and aerospace engineering.
