  • Jet Engine History

    A jet engine is a sort of engine that releases a quick moving jet of gas to produce thrust as per Newton's third law of motion. This expansive meaning of jet engines incorporates turbojets, turbofans, rockets, ramjets, pulse jets and pump-jets, yet in like but in common term usage, the term commonly refers to a gas turbine Brayton cycle engine, an type of engine with a revolving compressor fueled by a turbine, with the remaining energy providing thrust. In today’s modern age of aviation, jet engines are so well known, becoming commonplace in the present day world that gas turbines are now and then erroneously alluded to as s specific use jet engine, rather than being the other way around. The vast majority of jet engines are a simplified version…

  • Jet Engines Research Paper

    The long white trails that follow an airplane, streaking across the sky, can be wondered by children and adults. People consider these lingering streaks beautiful, but many are alarmed by them. People all around the world have come up with theories on these chemtrails. Although these trails may seem beautiful, they can be harmful. Jet engines spew out very hot air, and because the water vapor is one the the byproducts of the exhaust, the air is also very humid. When the jets fly, the air in the…

  • Aircraft Propulsion Essay

    system consists of an aircraft engine and propellers or propulsive nozzle for producing thrust. An aircraft propulsion system must achieve two things. First, the system should be able to produce enough thrust that it must be equivalent to the drag on cruising airplane. Secondly its thrust should be able to exceed the drag on the airplane so that it can accelerate. The greater the excess thrust the faster will plan accelerate. Some aircrafts like airliners or cargo planes use high bypass fans…

  • Turbine Test Rig

    The analysis of turbines is no easy feat to accomplish. With an ever expanding need to generate efficient energy, a way to increase efficiency is to find ways to improve turbine technology. The best way to analyze different turbine set ups is the usage of a turbine test rig. There are multitudes of types of these rigs with reasons for and against them. These rigs are incredibly expensive to build and keep up. But they provide vital information about turbine performance and enable the improvement…
