The following projects are based on propulsion. This list shows the latest innovative projects which can be built by students to develop hands-on experience in areas related to/ using propulsion.
As well all know that it was the wright bros who gave the first successful manned flight to the world, and there are better proofs that eight years earlier to wright bros, an Indian Sanskrit scholar S B Talpade designed a basic aircraft called marutshakti, unmanned aerial vehicle at Chowpatty beach in Bombay, crediting him the first creator of an aircraft in modern times. He used Vedic technology for designing the aircraft.
One of the advanced technologies which use a higher temperature for producing output is plasma technology. One associated application of it is plasma propulsion. Plasma propulsion is a technology in which the propellant is in an ionized or plasma state.
A ram accelerator is a device for accelerating projectiles to very high speeds. It uses jet-engine-like propulsion cycles based on ramjet or scramjet combustion processes. Application mainly in non-rocket spacelaunch with this technology.
Thrust vectoring is one of the technologies used to overcome the challenge for innovation. By vectoring the exhaust jet, the engine’s thrust is used to control the aircraft. In supersonic fighter aircraft thrust vectoring is one of the major phenomena used for VTOL/STOL and maneuvering. But in commercial aircraft thrust vectoring is used to prevent catastrophic failure and for Short Take-Off and Landing.
A Hybrid rocket is the combination of solid and liquid propellant. In most common cases solid-state fuel is used and the oxidizer used is in the liquid or gaseous state. The Hybrid rocket is a kind of safe propulsion and low cost when compared to the solid and liquid propellant rockets. The solid propellant and liquid or gaseous oxidizer are stored separately. The oxidizer is passed over the solid fuel through the injector and then combustion takes place and the hot gases exhausted through the nozzle.
