Abstract:

The textbook supplies the necessary information for planning the basic systems of a modern aricraft power plant with an air-breathing jet engine. The aspects of engine operation in an aircraft are compared with the conditions of its operation on a stand, and the general requirements that apply to the power plant and its systems are derived. Separate chapters are devoted to the fuel systems, air intake and exhaust systems, and systems for scavenging and engine cooling. Author
