Much simpler concept I was taught at flight school, but won't likely go over well in here.

Suck
Bang
Blow



Suck in air, burn fuel in it, blows out the back making energy to suck in more.

It's the Women's Forum. Maybe you should tell them what colors are available?

TRG

I posted Wrenches 101 in the WF a few months ago too. It went over well.
I'vce never noticed the colors of the engines



I swear, I read that five times before read it as 'wRenches 101'...TRG

Daisywench was posting here for a month (maybe longer) before I realized her username didn't have the name of a tool in it.



Sadly, it wasn't the first time I've been accused of being a tool.

You're exaggerating! I know there's married banging!
It's called "hallway sex"
You walk by in the hallway and say "screw you!" to each other.

Of course, I am divorced, but if my Ex had ever told me to 'Wait until Oprah is over before sepaking to me..."

I would have shot the TV.

I'm working on it. When I was single and living alone, I had 3 TV's in my house.
But I don't watch much TV so they were just decoration.


I'm down to one now. There is no TV in our bedroom any more. That one took
the long swim.......

How we got from jet engines to marriage issues it beyond me.....
I was honestly hoping for a lock here to save things.....

Too late....

The turboprop engine : Turboprop engine derives its propulsion by the conversion of the majority of gas stream energy into mechanical power to drive the compressor , accessories , and the propeller load. The shaft on which the turbine is mounted drives the propeller through the propeller reduction gear system . Approximately 90% of thrust comes from propeller and about only 10% comes from exhaust gas.





Please explain a "free turbine" like the PT6.

A free-turbine engine has two major sections, the gas generator and the free turbine section. The function of the gas generator it to produce the required energy to drive the free turbine system, and it extracts about two-thirds of energy available from the combustion process. A turboprop engine is similar in design to a turboshaft engine except that it uses a reduction gear system to drive the propeller. The propeller may be driven from the gas generator, or it may use its own free turbine in the same way as the turboshaft engine. The free turbine arrangement allows the propeller driven turbine to seek its optimum speed while the compressor turbine operates at the best speed for the compressor efficiency.

I read it but I don't know what it means



Okay. What it means is that the propellor section not attached to the hot section of the engine. When the hot section spins it draws air through the propellor turbine section which turns the prop through the reduction gears.
With a free turbine you can hold the prop with your hand while the engine starts and it wont move.

In the arctic, they will park Twin Otters and shut them down, tie off the props, re-start them and let them run all night when it's really cold.

Take a regular jet and add another fan around the oustide. This outside fan
has 2 secions, a front "propeller" section, and a smaller "driven" section that sits in the
exhaust stream of the regular jet. This driven section turns an additional shaft that spins
the fan on, acting like a propeller. It's basically the same as a PT6 type design, but the
propeller is inside a duct, hence the other name ducted fan.

This is not very easy to describe any more. I used to do this all the time and not think anything of it.
Until today. Basically:

How shall I put this. It gives more blow for any given suck/bang.

God help us all.....

Ok, so you have your gas turbine engine. Say, a high bypass turbo-fan.

Well, it is HOT as hell right now in Georgia. Explain how that gas turbine engine can cool the aircraft and its passengers.

Yes, I want to hear your rendition of how an air-cycle machine works,
