Abstract:

The report reviews the state of the art and planned improvements in the design and production of turbine engines for aircraft in the United States, England, Italy, France and West Germany. Some new improvements in engine design include the use of lightweight alloys, heat exchangers, multistage units and air-cooled turbine vanes. The development of double-flow turbines is discussed and some examples are given. Some of the latest advances in turboprop engines are also considered. It is pointed out that improvements in engine design have increased the time between repairs as well as the total service life of turbine engines used in aircraft. Author
