AIRCRAFT PROPULSION. Humans have always dreamed with flying, from Icarus ' wax-glued feathered-wings myth, to Da Vinci's flying machines, but, leaving. Aircraft Propulsion Systems. – Basics of propulsion (2nd and 3rd law). P ll j t d l. – Propellers, jets and nozzles. – Types of engines (Piston, Turboprop, Turbojet. T HE literature in the field of propulsion is rich with several outstanding books, including the first edition of this text. The unique feature of this second edition is that it covers updated materials: namely, innovative propulsion concepts, modern aircraft gas-turbine engines.

The unit also supplies a limited amount of underpinning knowledge across other modules. Learning outcomes On completion of this unit a learner should: 1 Understand the function and operation of typical gas turbine fuel systems 2 Understand the function, construction and operation of gas turbine lubrication systems 3 Know about engine control systems 4 Know about the operation and components of engine fire detection and protection systems and the operation of ice detection and protection systems.
The criteria for a pass grade describe the level of achievement required to pass this unit.
To achieve a distinction grade the evidence must show that, in addition to the pass and merit criteria, the learner is able to: D1 compare and evaluate the fuel and lubrication systems for two main types of gas turbine engine analyse the causes and effects of engine fires and how they are detected and contained. Delivery should, where possible, include a comparison of different types of gas turbine engines including turbojet, turbofan, turboshaft and turboprop.
It would be advantageous to then focus on a particular type of gas turbine and relate the fuel and lubrication systems to the chosen engine.
About this book
This allows delivery to be tailored to learners requirements and the most appropriate form of gas turbine application. Learners will need access to a gas turbine engine together with the fuel components, lubrication, fire and ice protection and controls systems. However where learners are employed they should be encouraged to use the resources available at their workplace.
A practical approach could be used for parts of the unit, particularly where centres have access to small gas turbine engine test rigs, for example to monitor oil temperature and pressure, or the use of engine controls and servicing, although this is not essential. Learners should be encouraged to take an investigative approach throughout and to use an appropriate engine to identify the main components. For learning outcome 1, learners will need to know about the layout of the main components of a gas turbine fuel system and understand the function, operation and contribution of each main component to the fuel system as a whole.
They should learn about the types of fuel used, including the main additives and the reasons for those additives, their identification codes and the equipment colour markings used for gas turbine engines. Learners must also be made aware of the health and safety implications of high pressure fuel systems.
In learning outcome 2 learners must understand the layout, function and operation of the main components which make up a typical gas turbine lubrication system and which can be related to any of the four main types of engine application whether civil or military. Learners should understand the types and characteristics of lubricants used in gas turbines and why synthetic oils are used almost exclusively in preference to mineral oils and also have a basic understanding of why they should not be mixed.
They should be aware of the different types of synthetic oils used, such as type 1 and type 2, and the basic differences between them.
They will have a knowledge of the grading system and be able to recognise either the commercial aviation number or the AN specification military and relate these to the SAE system, as appropriate to the learner. Mass refers to the quantity of matter, while weight refers to the pull of gravity on that matter. Any analogy that may be applied to explain the above principles is the recoil of a pistol.
It is interesting to note that whether a piston is fired through water, through ordinary atmosphere, or through a vacuum the recoil is the same in all cases. Still another fact that should be noted is that the thrust is equal against the bullet and the pistol. In practice it is just impossible to provide the storage or to carry the weight that would be required for a flight of any reasonable duration, and so rockets may be considered as boosts for other forms of propulsion, to be used only in special circumstances, or for flights the duration of which is measured in minutes and seconds rather than in hours.
Rocket propulsion is simply a development of the work type of rocket with which every one is familiar.
Many different kinds of fuel can be used, solids, liquids, and gases and the system may even lend itself eventually to the use of atomic power. These engines were developed from the motor in the Norton Classic motorcycle.
The single-rotor engine was put into a Chevvron motor glider and into the Schleicher ASH motor-gliders. As a cost-effective alternative to certified aircraft engines some Wankel engines, removed from automobiles and converted to aviation use, have been fitted in homebuilt experimental aircraft.
Such conversions first took place in the early s;[ citation needed ] and as of 10 December the National Transportation Safety Board has only seven reports of incidents involving aircraft with Mazda engines, and none of these is of a failure due to design or manufacturing flaws.
Main article: Aircraft diesel engine Most aircraft engines use spark ignition, generally using gasoline as a fuel. Starting in the s attempts were made to produce a compression ignition Diesel engine for aviation use.
In general, Diesel engines are more reliable and much better suited to running for long periods of time at medium power settings, which is why they are widely used in, for example, trucks and ships. The lightweight alloys of the s were not up to the task of handling the much higher compression ratios of diesel engines, so they generally had poor power-to-weight ratios and were uncommon for that reason, although the Clerget 14F Diesel radial engine has the same power to weight ratio as a gasoline radial.
Aircraft Propulsion, 2nd Edition
Improvements in Diesel technology in automobiles leading to much better power-weight ratios , the Diesel's much better fuel efficiency and the high relative taxation of AVGAS compared to Jet A1 in Europe have all seen a revival of interest in the use of diesels for aircraft.
Thielert Aircraft Engines converted Mercedes Diesel automotive engines, certified them for aircraft use, and became an OEM provider to Diamond Aviation for their light twin.
It is thought that this design of engine could permit sufficient performance for antipodal flight at Mach 5, or even permit a single stage to orbit vehicle to be practical.Piston-turbofan hybrid[ edit ] At the April ILA Berlin Air Show , Munich -based research institute de:Bauhaus Luftfahrt presented a high-efficiency composite cycle engine for , combining a geared turbofan with a piston engine core.
Ice and fire detection and protection systems should be identified and described at component level to show that learners understand how they form a system P8, P9. To achieve a distinction grade the evidence must show that.
Suggestions of opportunities for the generation of level 3 key skills evidence are given here.
