Aircraft have evolved into extremely complex machines, posing a highly integrated design challenge, including many energy interrelated systems dependent. Some of the systems also generate by-products, in the form of heat that must be carefully addressed. Methods exist for the design of all these systems, based on the evolutionary vehicle development. However, the more we depart from existing databases and experience levels, the less confident we are in an optimal design. In addition, many of the classical techniques remain constrained by the simplifying assumptions used in their original derivation. If these are not considered, then there is no guide to when those classical techniques no longer give an energy-optimum solution.

The objective of these lecture series proceedings is to present a common design currency in the form of “exergy,” as the potential work available from an energy source. It is the thesis of this work to explain and develop the theory of explicit exergy-based design, with validating design examples. The course will start with a general lecture covering the background of 2nd Law of Thermodynamics analysis. Then the basics of the method are presented followed by applications of the fundamental theory. The course note continues with discussions of subsonic vehicle, gas turbine and combustion applications. Finally, hypersonic analysis is presented followed by discussions on the integrated system approach and design space visualization methods.

Together, the application of exergy methods to all levels of flight vehicle design is presented. The notes provide a good basis for engineers working in all areas of vehicle design.
