Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand treatment of the background, development, and applications of the gas turbine engine it its various forms, such as turobjet, turbofan, turboprop, and turboshaft powerplants. Designed primarily as a resource for technicians preparing for the FAA aircraft powerplant mechanic certification, Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology also may be used a reference. The text also discusses the changing maintenance and overhaul procedures and philosophies and the role of fuel metering in engine operation....
During my experience of research for the last 25 years, I have felt the need for a text book
written specifi cally for Design Engineers and Materials Scientists. Although there have
been a number of excellent books written on the subject, they are now either out of date or
fundamental in nature. There is a growing need to adopt advanced techniques / technologies
to meet the ever increasing demand for high effi ciency in existing engines and to develop
modern gas turbines for strategic and special applications....
