Yes. There is a, although outdated method, that is called thrust horsepower. It is uses a selected reference speed of 375 MPH that the math works out 1 pound of thrust to 1 HP.

[tex]THP=\frac{T*MPH}{375}[/tex]

Really, a more substantial and meaningful comparison is in thrust SFC or Thrust Specific Fuel Consumption.

[tex]T_{SFC}=\frac{\dot{m_f}}{T}[/tex]
