Systems of Commercial Turbofan Engines
"Systems of Commercial Turbofan Engines" gives the reader information about the operation of the engine systems, its components and the terminology used throughout the industry. The engine systems are explained by the use of examples from today's engines. So the readers, from aircraft mechanics to commercial pilot, become familiar with the current technology in this field and attains a deeper knowledge of the systems of commercial turbofan engines.
To understand the operation of gas turbine engines used in aircraft, it is not enough to understand the basic operation of a gas turbine. It is also necessary to understand the operation and the design of its auxiliary systems. This book is an introduction into the systems of modern commercial aircraft gas turbine engines. It is made for the reader who is familiar with the basic operation of aircraft gas turbine engine.
Shows the design and operation of the systems of modern turbofan enginesThe reader with the knowledge of basic engine operation gets the additional knowledge to understand the operation of the complete aircraft engine as it is installed on an aircraft. This is shown by photos and system schematicsThe examples are selected from different engines of different manufacturers. So the reader gets an overview over the designs principles of different manufacturers
