In fact, it's the integration of what is generally three different domains a aerothermodynamics
, structures and propulsion a that make developing a hypersonic vehicle such a challenge.

of gas turbine and rocket propulsion: AIAA Educations Series, 1997.
Gas Turbine Aerothermodynamics
and Performance Calculations
of turbomachinery; analysis and design.
The syllabus includes lectures on basic subjects related to combustion, such as aerothermodynamics
and heat transfer, but is mainly devoted to consideration of theoretical analysis appropriate to design, practical information on design procedure, and methods of overcoming problems in combustion development.
The Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) initiative is a unique approach to engine technology development that combines improved materials, innovative structural design, improved aerothermodynamics
, and advanced computational methods.
Investigate the combustion and aerothermodynamics
of enclosure fires, including travelling fires;
The contents are divided broadly as follows: fluid dynamics and aerothermodynamics
(volume 1); propulsion and power (volume 2); structural technology (volume 3); materials technology (volume 4); dynamics and control (v.

The research programme will advance the frontiers of supersonic and hypersonic aerothermodynamics
and propulsion and it will firmly establish a UK/European lead in research on shock-boundary layer interactions and their control.
It aims to advance the frontiers of supersonic and hypersonic aerothermodynamics
and propulsion and it will firmly establish a UK/European lead in research on laser energy systems for flight and flow control of high-speed vehicles.
