Motores de Reaccion y turbinas de gas
This is a very useful and interesting work for all those who wish to approach the field of turbine engine operation, so that they can use it both as a technical reading and as a reference manual.
All the chapters are accompanied by numerous diagrams and colour images on real components, to facilitate the assimilation of the contents. In addition, each of them incorporates a final self-evaluation to assess the knowledge acquired.
In this second colour edition, issues related to cooling techniques and the improvement of turbine blade efficiency, new technologies linked to the development of turbofan engines, and issues related to engine preservation and maintenance operations have been updated.
Fundamental manual for Module 15 (Gas Turbine Engines) to obtain the Aircraft Maintenance Technician License LMA B.1 and for the title of Higher Technician in Aeromechanical Maintenance.
This work is structured in three blocks:
-Concepts of thermodynamics related to jet and turbine engines.
-Fundamental components of the jet engine: description and operation.
-Auxiliary systems of the jet and turbine engines: structure, operation and maintenance.
