한국추진공학회지는 1993년 10월 8일 창립된 한국추진공학회가 간행하는 학술지로서 1997년 창간하였으며, 연구재단 등재학술지 이다.
추진공학은 발사체, 인공위성, 우주탐사선, 그리고 항공기 등의 추진기관 개발에 필요한 근본 학문으로서, 열유체공학, 연소공학, 첨단 내열소재, 제어계측, 전자공학 등과 같은 첨단과학기술들이 복합적으로 요구되는 학문분야이며, 항공우주 기술의 가장 핵심적인 분야이다.
Aim and Scope
This Journal is a bimonthly publication of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers (KSPE), articles of which are selected for publication through a peer-review process based upon the judgement of originality, quality of exposition, and significance of the results. It is devoted to the advancement of the science and technology not only of aerospace propulsion but also of all sorts of power directly related to propulsion, through the dissemination of original research papers and review articles contributing to advancements in airbreathing, electric, and advanced propulsion; solid, liquid, and hybrid rockets; fuels, high energy materials, and propellants; power generation and conversion for aerospace vehicles and waterborne vessels; and the application of propulsion engineering to terrestrial energy devices and systems. This Journal aims to provide readers with primary interests in propulsion area ranging from research through development to applications. Papers of theoretical, computational, and experimental research in those disciplines and also the sciences of combustion, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, guidance and control, and structural mechanics as directly related to propulsive power and energy systems are solicited.
