Building a Jet Engine - Step by Step Guide

In summary, the conversation is about building a jet engine for an aerospace engineering project at the university. The speakers are looking for detailed information and resources on how to build a jet engine. Some helpful links were suggested, but it is mentioned that building a jet engine requires advanced machining skills and creativity to work around challenges.

Hi guys...

we are currently interested -in our clip of aerospace engineering in my uni.-

to build a complete jet engine ... unfortunately.. we have not yet found any detailed explanation to each step in doing so .. if you have any link or uploaded book or even you remember some manuals foe this purpose...please put it here


thanks

have - you...tried...google...yet-?

Take it from someone who learned through bitter experience (when I was about 12), that basing it upon a canister-type vacuum cleaner is not a good idea. :blushing:

yes i did mr.Cyrus .. the result is no detailed information , "buy to get" , no complete design ...

You're unlikely to find a ready-to-build kit design for a jet engine. You'll hae to design it yourself.

Unless you have access to an extremely advanced machine shop I'd start by looking at what parts you can take from scrap turbo-charges.

GOOD, DONT GIVE UP. our sir said that In 2006 one of our senior built one jet engine it took him around 6 months to built, worked fine sound was horrible it seems
some links might be helpful to you

There are a few decent books out there with titles like "how to build a jet engine." None of them will just make the thing pop out of thin air though. You will need good machining skills, and there will always be sketchy parts of the design you will need to work around.

1. How does a jet engine work?

A jet engine works by pulling in air through a compressor, where it is compressed and mixed with fuel. The mixture is then ignited, creating an explosion that shoots out of the back of the engine. This creates thrust, which propels the aircraft forward.

2. What are the main components of a jet engine?

The main components of a jet engine include the compressor, combustion chamber, turbine, and exhaust nozzle. The compressor is responsible for compressing the air, the combustion chamber mixes and ignites the fuel, the turbine extracts energy from the expanding gases, and the exhaust nozzle directs the exhaust gases to create thrust.

3. How is a jet engine assembled?

A jet engine is typically assembled in a step-by-step process. The first step is to assemble the compressor, followed by the combustion chamber and the turbine. The engine is then tested to ensure it is functioning properly. Finally, the exhaust nozzle is attached and the engine is ready for use.

4. What materials are used to build a jet engine?

Jet engines are typically made of high-strength, heat-resistant materials such as titanium, nickel-based alloys, and composites. These materials are able to withstand the extreme temperatures and pressures within the engine.

5. How long does it take to build a jet engine?

The time it takes to build a jet engine can vary depending on the complexity and size of the engine. On average, it can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to build a jet engine. This includes designing, testing, and manufacturing all of the components and assembling them into a finished engine.
