The Jet Engine provides a complete, accessible description of the working and underlying principles of the gas turbine. Accessible, non-technical approach explaining the workings of jet engines, for readers of all levels Full colour diagrams, cutaways and photographs throughout Written by RR specialists in all the respective fields Hugely popular and well-reviewed book, originally published in 2005 under Rolls Royce’s own imprint
Jet Engines: Fundamentals of Theory, Design and Operation
This book is intended for those who wish to broaden their knowledge of jet engine technology and associated subjects. It covers turbojet, turboprop and turbofan designs and is applicable to civilian and military usage. It commences with an overview of the main design types and fundamentals and then looks at air intakes, compresors, turbines and exhaust systems in great detail.
From the dawn of the present century a number of inventors proposed various methods of jet propulsion. However, it was not until Frank White, a young RAF pilot, persisted with next to no official support and little money that a practical jet engine was produced during the 1930s. Even then, it was not put into operational use until near the end of the Second World War. Meanwhile a rival development team had been set up in Germany, with all the resources of a large and prosperous aircraft company. The struggles, successes and failures of these early developments make a fascinating story.The differences between gas-turbine, jet, rocket, ramjet and helicopter turboshaft engines are fully explained here, and their history is traced from pioneering days through to today's highly complex and powerful units, as used in the latest wide-bodied airliners and high-performance military aircraft. The purpose of the various components of gas-turbine and jet engines, and how they work, is described in language understandable to those without an engineering background, avoiding complex mathematical formulae.The development and refinement of gas-turbine and jet engines has been a remarkable success story, with almost every country in the world now linked by aircraft using these propulsion systems....
German Jet Engine and Gas Turbine Development, 1930-45
Developmental history of German jet engine including original design plans, photographs of prototypes, technical diagrams and graphs. It begins with the theoretical work of early designers but concentrates on turbojet, turboprop, ducted fan and hybrid types of engines and their applications in aircraft. Also included are pure gas turbine design used in tanks, military land vehicles and naval vessels.
For the first time Kurt Schreckling's Strahlturbine Book is now available in English. It explains how to build Kurt Schreckling's turbojet motor, the FD3/64 containing full construction, photographs and working drawings.
Aircraft Engine Design, Second Edition (AIAA Education Series)
A design textbook attempting to bridge the gap between traditional academic textbooks, which emphasize individual concepts and principles; and design handbooks, which provide collections of known solutions. The airbreathing gas turbine engine is the example used to teach principles and methods. The first edition appeared in 1987. The disk contains supplemental material. Annotation c.

The Engines of Pratt & Whitney: A Technical History (Library of Flight)
The Engines of Pratt & Whitney: A Technical History recounts the role played by Pratt & Whitney (P&W) in the evolution of aircraft engines from 1925 to the present timefor the most part as told by the engineers who made the history. A technical reference of all P&W engines and their applications, the book describes the evolution of piston engines and gas turbines, and offers young engineers a wealth of insights about design, development, marketing, and product support efforts for customers at home and abroad. The first three chapters introduce the contributions of Frederick Rentschler, George Mead, and Leonard Hobbs, with stories of how each new piston engine came into being. From 19401945 P&W committed its engineering efforts to winning World War II, but when the war was over, P&W found itself on the outside of the gas turbine market, which was capably being served by General Electric and Westinghouse. How P&W emerged from being five years behind the competition in 1945 to a positio
Using language understandable to those without an engineering background and avoiding complex mathematical formulae, Bill Gunston explains the differences between gas-turbine, jet, rocket, ramjet and helicopter turbo shaft aero engines and traces their histories from the early days through to today’s complex and powerful units as used in the latest wide-bodied airliners and high performance military jets.
Elements of Propulsion: Gas Turbines and Rockets, Second Edition (Aiaa Education)
Elements of Propulsion: Gas Turbines and Rockets, Second Edition provides a complete introduction to gas turbine and rocket propulsion for aerospace and mechanical engineers.
