About the Author

Corin Segal has been a member of the faculty at the University of Florida in the Mechanical and Aerospace Department since completing his Ph.D. at the University of Virginia. He leads research in the Combustion and Propulsion Laboratory. Prior to his graduate studies Dr Segal spent over eleven years in the aerospace industry as a senior aerodynamicist, project manager, and as a leader of the technical bureau. His current research covers a range of topics including mixing and combustion in high speed flows, supercritical mixing, high pressure combustion and cavitation. Results of his group's research have appeared in national and international publications. He is an associate editor of the AIAA Journal of Propulsion and Power and an Associate Fellow in the AIAA.


"...Segal has done a commendable job of providing a needed introductory book on the subject of scramjets. In addition to providing an excellent reference for the engineer beginning his/her work on scramjets, the book provides a good update on the improvements in the state of the art in the last 10 years. As such, it is deserving of a place on every scramjet engineers bookshelf, particularly those interested in details relating to supersonic combustion. " - AIAA JOURNAL
