12.490 Advanced Igneous Petrology (MIT) 12.490 Advanced Igneous Petrology (MIT)

Description

Advanced Igneous Petrology covers the history of and recent developments in the study of igneous rocks. Students review the chemistry and structure of igneous rock-forming minerals and proceed to study how these minerals occur and interact in igneous rocks. The course focuses on igneous processes and how we have learned about them through studying a number of significant sites worldwide.

An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope

Description

In this free course, An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope, you will experience the study of minerals using a polarising microscope. While the study of minerals can involve electron or ion beam chemical analysis, the polarising microscope remains the prime tool for the study of rock thin sections and is the foundation of learning to recognise, characterise and identify rocks. First published on Mon, 21 Mar 2016 as An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website.

12.524 Mechanical Properties of Rocks (MIT) 12.524 Mechanical Properties of Rocks (MIT)

Description

12.524 is a survey of the mechanical behavior of rocks in natural geologic situations. Topics will include a brief survey of field evidence of rock deformation, physics of plastic deformation in minerals, brittle fracture and sliding, and pressure-solution processes. We will compare results of field petrologic and structural studies to data from experimental structural geology. 12.524 is a survey of the mechanical behavior of rocks in natural geologic situations.

16.50 Introduction to Propulsion Systems (MIT) 16.50 Introduction to Propulsion Systems (MIT)

Description

This course presents aerospace propulsive devices as systems, with functional requirements and engineering and environmental limitations along with requirements and limitations that constrain design choices. Both air-breathing and rocket engines are covered, at a level which enables rational integration of the propulsive system into an overall vehicle design. Mission analysis, fundamental performance relations, and exemplary design solutions are presented.

16.512 Rocket Propulsion (MIT) 16.512 Rocket Propulsion (MIT)

Description

This class focuses on chemical rocket propulsion systems for launch, orbital, and interplanetary flight. It studies the modeling of solid, liquid-bipropellant, and hybrid rocket engines. Thermochemistry, prediction of specific impulse, and nozzle flows including real gas and kinetic effects will also be covered. Other topics to be covered include structural constraints, propellant feed systems, turbopumps, and combustion processes in solid, liquid, and hybrid rockets.
