Aerospace Mechanical parts of a jet engine

  1. Dec 29, 2016 #1
    Hi guys
    I'm making a project about jet engine.
    I need to write 10 pages of the mechanical part of a jet engine.
    I already did it for physics.
    What can i talk about. I need formules en stuff in the 10 pages
    Ty for the help guys!

    What have you found out for yourself so far ?

    Please use some recognisable language when replying .

    Yes sorry for the language im not a native English speaker but i will do my best.
    I think I can write something about the mechanical efficiency of the engine.
    Also about the rotation of the blades.
    Maybe i can do something how to calculate the speed..
    I can do something about the inertia force ( traagheidskracht in dutch).
    I dont know if i can get good information of this things.
    Maybe you have something in mind with good information?
    Ty

    Well, it seems like the PDF that was posted in reply to your question was pretty much on-topic. Do you want us to do your homework for you?

    Can you expand on your thoughts above? "Mechanical efficience" wouldn't seem to apply, but fluid dynamics would seem to be a big "mechanical" part of a jet engine's operation...

    Idk man but i thought you guys could give me more concrete stuff than 300 pages.
    But np
    Thanks for the help man
    and the mechanical efficiency. i might be wrong but i thought there was the thermal efficiency and the mechanical efficiency.

    Mechanically/aerodynamically what determines the optimum number of blades per turbine? What determines the optimum number of turbine stages? Compare and contrast a turbojet with a ramjet mechanically... Why are they different?

    oke thanks man im gonna search information about that!

    That should get you to 10 pages easy! (and be pretty interesting as well) Have fun! :smile:
