Turbine Engine & Gas Turbine Engine
Turbine engines are used in aircraft and on boats. Some smaller gas turbine engines are even used to produce electrical power, drive pumps, and generate steam.
That is, the power you get out of the engine compared to the weight of the engine itself is excellent. Gas turbine engines are smaller than their internal combustion engine counterparts of the same power.
With the increase in the forward speed, increases the ram air pressure along with pressure and air temperature. Ram air pressure is the air pressure of free stream created by the aircraft engine’s forward motion (Hill and Peterson).
To complete the construction of the engine, all of the displays for the thermocouples and pressure gauges should be mounted in a display panel so that students can view all of the relevant information in one location. The push buttonfor the igniter could also be mounted to this panel. Once all of these components have been integrated, the gas-turbine will be completed.
