Another error about internal combustion engines that is made by virtually every journalist or narrator who has ever held forth on the subject, is that the fuel air mixture "explodes" in the combustion chamber. Nothing could be further from the truth. Both piston engines and jet engines require a very precise and controlled burn pattern to either push the cylinders or the turbine blades. Explosions are very inefficient and harmful too. An explosion inside the combustion chamber would be catastrophic for the combustion liner as well as the turbine blades, causing them to fail in no time at all. Instead, it is a highly directional flame pattern that is engineered to impinge against the blades in such a way as to cause the least amount of harm, while extracting the most energy.

The narrator was wrong about several things, but one in particular stands out. He states that there are only two companies making jet engines, and that could not be more wrong. There is a third company, Pratt & Whitney, which was among the first to build turbine engines, and is still going strong today. When you buy a new 747, you are given a choice between three engines to choose from, Rolls Royce, General Electric and Pratt & Whitney. It is Pratt & Whitney that built the engines for the SR-71. That fact alone, speaks volumes.

I have a few questions to experts : 75% of thrust of generated by the first fan which is of course the largest diameter of the fan . I thought thrust was a measure of the mass of hot gases expelled by the turbine blades ? Can the atmospheric air being pulled and pushed by the primary fan also be thought as thrust ? So is a modern turbofan is essentially a turbo prop ? What is the rpm of the Fan blades ( the first and largest diameter fan blade in front of the engine ) at take off and at cruising altitude/speed . What is the range of the rpm of this fan ? What is the horsepower of this fan at take off and at cruising speed . What is the maximum horsepower of this fan ? What is the equivalent horsepower of the the thrust developed by the turbine blades ? I mean the supposed 25% of the final thrust ( of the hot gases going through the turbine blades ) ? What is the combined/final horsepower of each of the Trent 1000 engine ? What is the horsepower at take off and at cruising speed ? If on paper if the turbine engine is replaced by an electric motor so only the large diameter fan , a shaft connecting it to the electric motor in a ductec assembly remain how much horsepower should the shaft of the motor impart on the fan considering the fan should also compensate for loss of turbine horsepower and how much would be the maximum rpm of the fan . On paper I am trying to envision an electric boeing 787 plane with alien level batteries of course so please humor me .

Looks like some Americans have an honest open mind :- 'With Rolls-Royce AE2100D3 engines and Dowty R391 six-bladed composite propellers, the Super Hercules operates in hot climates, handling short, high-elevation airstrips with maximum payload. The Super Hercules transports 33 percent more payload, using half the crew, while burning less fuel and flying faster, farther and higher than its predecessors.'

"If anybody says Derby,, the reply comes back, ;Rolls Royce;." Unfortunately this will not be true for long, thanks to Theresa May, the EU, and the betrayal of Britain since WW2. Watch UK Column News, and David Ellis of Strategic Defence Intitiatives.

I have worked on both Rolls-Royce and Pratt&Whitney engines and I can say that Pratt&Whitney jet engines are more reliable and able to take a lot more abuse. To bad that Pratt&Whitney is getting out of the large jet engine business, Pratt&Whitney engines are just better engineered.

Yeah, maybe so but every man on the street knows the name Rolls-Royce, while you could walk through a busy city for days without finding anyone who has ever heard of either Pratt Bit or Whitney Fuseton.

British engineering is quite unique. It hasn't got the rigour and reliability of the Germans or the Japanese, but it has its own charm and method of madness. It flexes its muscles and creativity further into taking risks, which sometimes pays off and at other times ends in disaster (see DH Comet, eg). It takes all sorts to make the world go 'round.

He visto varios vídeos donde hacen estallar al álabe del fan y éste no rompe o despedaza al aro del motor, el aro de entrada permanece intacto, entonces me surge la duda: ¿Cómo es posible que ante un fallo real, el aro de entrada al motor se destruya? Como sucedió en la aeronave de Southwest. Aquí comparto el link de ese accidente. Reciba mis saludos. https://elpais.com/internacional/2018/04/19/actualidad/1524133082_797075.html

I am a proud rolls Royce employee and work in the turbines department where we make the high and low pressure turbine blades that help produce the massive thrust required to generate lift in the engines like the Trent 900 Trent 1000 and xwb types. i can state here that the work and special training that goes into the production of these turbine blades is of the highest standards.. possible using the latest Technics... some not yet available anywhere else

All machines are and there is very little generalization in robotics. One machine can do a number of tasks but a machine specifically designed to perform one task very efficiently becomes more and more inefficient the further from that task additional tasks are in terms of the amount of accuracy, precision, strength, mobility and reliability required. A machine designed to handle large body panels of a car may be "capable" of putting wine glasses in a box but nothing about it is ideally suited to the task. A human being on the other hand, can switch from one task to the other in seconds without even thinking about it. Countries and industries that have bought into robotics and automation wholesale and have sacrified vocational education in the process are rapidly being passed in industrial capacity and capability by less "developed" countries. Companies and countries that have focused on building the machines and developing the technology FOR those countries and companies have a huge advantage because building machines to "replace" humans is an industry in and of itself. Humans that can build a machine to perform a task more efficiently than humans are automatically capable of doing the task itself.

+Chad Meyer ...Yes, GE is making quantum leaps in jet engine design. Their use of composites and ceramic materials is taking the industry by storm! Their new breed of fan blades is holding up better than the competition so far.
maverickdallas100 (1 year ago)
Chad Meyer ...My youngest brother-in-law worked for a robotics company and travelled the US installing, troubleshooting, repairing and programming these devices. He was always busy and made excellent money until health issues took away his ability to work and eventually his life. But he has shown me just how maintenance-intensive these devices really are and that there's no "free lunch".
Chad Meyer (1 year ago)
It would "seem so", but unfortunately Rolls-Royce isn't exactly proving itself capable of building Trents very well. Which is odd since its basically the same engine R-R has built for decades. The only "new" engines Rolls has "built" have been the results of joint ventures with GE and P&W with Rolls-Royce providing the "funding" and its "partners" providing the technological capability. In fact, Rolls-Royce spectacularly (but very stealthily) destroyed a GE test facility with one of its Trents when the FAA finally demanded PROOF of its claims of product performance. Just like the A380 wing failed when the FAA demanded THAT test be actually performed rather than "virtually" performed via computer simulation. At the present time, R-R is about 40 years and 40,000 lbs of thrust behind General Electric when it comes to turbofan technology and performance. As I said, I'm a mechanic and I as born both with an intense interest in anything that turns money into noise AND the curiosity to wonder WHY and the intelligence to learn HOW. Turbofans can and do seem like tremendously complex machines beyond the comprehension of all but engineers to mechanical amateurs, but they're actually about as simple as engines get. So if you don't want to have a technical discussion, you should probably find someone else to lay your R-R propaganda on.
Chad Meyer (1 year ago)
Not to mention "advanced robotics" are still 100% the product of human creation and operation. There is no such thing as autonomous production of anything. Nor is it possible to remove human factors or labor or error from any process. Only clueless science fiction fans who grew up (for lack of a better term) in front of TV and movie screens believe otherwise. In fact, robotics generally increase human involvement. Instead of a human worker on an assembly line, you have a machine that must be designed, constructed, transported, installed, programmed, inspected, adjusted, serviced, repaired and maintained by dozens of people. Which is why industries and factories that have gone robotic have seen profits decrease as the technology has refused to "scale" the way human workforces have. In particular "autonomous" production lines have failed spectacularly when they have failed at all simply because of the ridiculous amount of time and money spent bringing an entire process online before a relatively minor problem skilled human workers could have solved in minutes required months to "work around" when computer programs programmers who can't change oil in a car had to write new software so "robots" could perform simple tasks without "crashing". Thats exactly why "advanced" European and Asian car makers and now Airbus are building factories and products in the U.S. where there are workers actually mechanically-inclined enough to change a tire available to build cars. Its really difficult to have people who don't own cars build cars profitably in countries where cars are luxuries.

If you must blame anyone for letting the Lockerbie bomber out, blame the Human Right's Court in the Hague. They let them out, not us, because they claimed to have health problems and were supposed to be practically at death's door. No more interference from those lefties in the Hague is just one positive that will come from Brexit.

Then let Boeing and every other airline that uses Rolls Royce get a cheaper one. Only don't blame us when the planes start dropping out of the sky.

Philip Shaw My mom was born in Nottingham, survived the war, and married my dad; a yank. I fly for the airlines, and my favorite flight was JFK-MAN. Going through security for the flight home, nice enough folks, but how stupid the process. After "you" let the Lockerbie bombers out, I lost it for the Britts, and the dumb ass security screening. You want to lock up flight crew, but let the scum that threaten my fellow crew and me; out. I asked my mother what in the hell has happened to England. You once hung until half dead, draw n quarter, and sent the trophy to the TB. Now...? You did Brexit, and that I'm happy for, but you have a long way to go. I do like the RB 211 engine I will say. Ps. Mom said back in the 70s that England was ruined. Looking back; I agree.

How exactly are the fan blades especially the base of them, able to withstand the huge amount of force generated from the super fast rotational speed of the whole engine? I was watching a video elsewhere that said when the engines are running @ full capacity, the weight at the tip of one blade is equal to over 100 tons? Amazing.
