Jet engines

by Klaus Hüenecke | 14 October 1997
Hardback
Categories: Aerospace Aviation
For those who wish to broaden their knowledge of jet engine technology and associated subjects. Jet Engines covers turbojet, turboprop and turbofan designs and is applicable to civilian and military usage. Starting with an overview of the main design types and fundamentals, it goes on to look at topics such as air intakes, compressors, and exhaust systems. Throughout the book, examples of the engine-to-aircraft relationship are used to follow the application of certain engine types to operational requirements. Why was the Pratt & Whitney TF33-P-7 turbofan selected to power the mighty Lockheed C-141 StarLifter? Why should one airline flying Boeing 747-400s select the Rolls-Royce RB211 turbofan and another select General Electric's CF6-80C2? Clearly it is not only aircraft types but also their operational requirements that dictate the answers - and that is why there is such a wide variety of gas turbine engines in production today.
