      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Good Book for Propulsion systems

    good book engineers...without understanding noting is possible...
    Best ever since other books....
    Also many universities suggest this as text books

    Awesome book for propulsion

    This is one of the best book for propulsion , but there is a problem it doesnt contain any solved example and also there is no easily awailable solution manual, thats the only problem,otherwise it is the best book because it contains the basic fundamentals ,engines,compressors,components and rocket too,the perfact book for propulsion bt you should also need questions for practice from other sources because in other books it is too complex to understand propulsion but it is easier in hill pete...
