The Jet Engine – A complete overview of the modern gas turbine.
The Jet Engine provides a complete, accessible description of the working and underlying principles of the gas turbine. Written by Rolls-Royce gas turbine engineers, it contains a wealth of detail and high-quality illustrations.
This is the sixth and latest edition of this publication.
The book is aimed at engineers and engineering students - and, indeed, anyone interested in the detail of one of the most complex machines of our time; it covers everything from an introduction to the theory of jet propulsion to in-depth component definitions, from basic mechanics to maintenance and overhaul.
