When a rocket launches a satellite into earth orbit or when an aircraft is propelled by a supersonic combustion ramjet engine, hypersonic flows are encountered.

This course will introduce you to the basic concepts associated with hypersonic, speeds greater than Mach 5. You will earn about the stage where you can analyze the performance of a scramjet engine that might be used in a future access-to-space system. Focused topic include isentropic flow, shock waves, combustors in scramjets, scramjets.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
