I am not impressed by the size of these engines!! I think we are looking at premitive engines compared to some of the future engines that will be powered by a totally new energy source!! We might see those in our life time soon!

Narrator is not an engineer. Rocket thrust is not given in 'pounds-feet'; rather the units 'lbf' translate as 'pounds force' to distinguish from 'pounds mass'. Also, torque is given in 'foot-pounds', not 'pounds-feet' for the ship engine.

The legendary "Rocketdyne's F1 engine " that has propelled Man to Moon. 5 x F1 engine on SATURN 5 Rocket produced around 7.5 million pounds of thrust( as per common man's term's that's about "32 million Horse power").

It's a little surreal being among the parts in a 'large engine' assembly facility. If you're used to, say, VW Bug sized valves and you're walking by tables of GIANT valves and GIANT pistons...they look just the same. Just WAY bigger. And the crank is just a thing to stare at and expand one's appreciation of machining. And YOU feel small. It's a little eerie. Scale. I wonder what the efficiency is for those 40 barrels of bunker oil (a minute?!?). Man, one container ship on one trip must be climate change all by itself. Why is the primitive internal combustion engine with its abysmal efficiency all we seem to have? Particularly for these muscular jobs moving i-phones and sweat shop garments and cocaine and more cars with more ICEs. sigh

The Wartsila ship engine does NOT produce 107 to 390 horsepower !!! Saying that's about 5 million foot-pounds of torque is silly as horsepower is totally different to torque. Clearly either the author or narrator have no idea of the topic. Best stick to topics you understand.
indyrat500 (27 days ago)
Yeah, the computer text-to-voice program didn't execute 107,390 hp properly. But the torque figure for turning the propeller of a ship is actually as important as horsepower. One of the design features of the Wartsila-Sulzer is that it produces max torque at a high point in the RPM range.
indyrat500 (27 days ago)
Perhaps you do not understand that it is a text-to-voice computer program that is providing the narration. If the text is not properly written, the results are not what you might have intended. And the video producer doesn't seem to care to double-check it.

Saturn V rocket thrust was measured in pounds-feet in this video. Everywhere else it's just pounds of thrust...
hoghogwild (22 days ago)
@FS2K4Pilot The most efficient altitude is determined by the nozzle design. The F-1 was a booster engine designed to do most of 8ts work in the atmosphere. They burned from sea level upwards for 159 seconds before the more efficient second stage J-2 engines took over. Those engines were 100% optimized for use in vacuum.
FS2K4Pilot (22 days ago)
hoghogwild The F-1 made 1.5 million pounds of thrust on the test stand at sea level, but at its most efficient operating altitude, the F-1 made over 2 million pounds of thrust.
hoghogwild (25 days ago)
It's actually measured in lbf but everyone just says "pounds", I think the video makers saw the units "lbf" and mistook it for a value used for torque, "pound feet" when rockets are measured using units of lbf or "pounds force". The F-1 produced 1,500,00 pounds force or 6,700,000 newtons or 680 tf (tons force). To make that much thrust each F-1 used 5,683 pounds (2,578 kg) of propellants every second.

You could have given us the horsepower of an F-1 rocket engine. They put out 32 million horsepower and 60 gigawatts of power. In the video it showed 1.7 megawatts to be able to power 2 million homes. The F-1 put out the equivalent of 64 million homes. That's just one engine. Remember there were five on the rocket. At the time, the total power of the F-1s on the Saturn Five was equal to more than the entire nation was consuming at the same moments in time. They burned 15,000 gallons of fuel per second. When I was a kid, my father was a foreman on the F-1s.

Does the USAF need to replace the B-52'S ENGINES? I THINK SO DO YOU?
tjp353 (27 days ago)
If they do, they will have to replace 8 with 8. If they could have given it 4 modern turbofans, without significant other modification, they would have done it decades ago. The problem is the B52's tiny rudder (inadequate directional control authority at low speeds), combined with the need to be able to safely deal with losing an engine during takeoff.

1:04 of all the ways you could pronounce “triple seven” , saying “seven-seventy seven” is by far THE WORST
indyrat500 (27 days ago)
@MrGalasa Every Boeing jetliner model has officially been named with the first digit a seven, and then the following two, usually combined as a two-digit number: seven-twenty-seven, seven-forty-seven, etc. The 777, nicely called the triple-seven, is officially the seven-seventy-seven.

You keep talking about engines built "in the United States". How about engines built elsewhere? Despite what most Americans think, there are actually other countries in the world, and many of them build bigger and better items than the USA, who still use incompatible imperial measurements in their engineering!
Perry Champ (1 month ago)
That would be the engineering that put a man on the moon more than 50 years ago? Metric measurements are incompatible with English measurements. What were the Europeans doing 50 years ago, driving little tiny cars?

@Gunther H.G. Geick how soon the suckling generations forget the sacrifices of those that have gone before. I think you should be left alone to wallow in your Socialist paradises. There are corrupt forces attempting to bring that sickness to America and I hope they are crushed and sent back to the Arab hell holes or some sympathetic European country that is being systematically sucked down the drain. Seventy five years ago, the USA was welcomed as redeemers from Nazi occupation that had swallowed up most of western Europe...seig heil and goose stepping SS troops ruled the day. When the back of the Soviet Union was finally broken, the freed people's of Eastern Europe begged acceptance into NATO for fear the Russian horde would return to smother and dominate them again. Yes, America has been begged...please come to our aid....dictators of every stripe..Fascist and Communist both sought to dominate your lives. Ask anybody that lived under the heel of the Marxists, what it was like. Yes, the USA should have left you alone to grow a backbone and overthrow your oppressors alone. The wealth of this nation has been poured out for your redemption and pity the thanks or gratitude you ungrateful people show. What I wish is that the millions of people invading our shores would stay in their home countries. Most are parasites. Some seek freedom...they are the ones willing to come legally. I'm all for America leaving you alone. And when the bear comes again, cry to yourselves. He will be back.

The more power are the reason why the boeing kills so many people. Old aircraft design and new more powerful engine are perfect formula for disaster. Airbus was more advanced and boeing did not want to spend 2 billions for new airplane design. All previous boing problems was nothing compared the current one. If they like to use 737max they must remove all these big engines and replace by smaller one.
