Gas turbines: Introduction: The development of the gas turbine engines as an aircraft power plant has been so rapid that it is difficult to appreciate that prior to the 1950 s very few people had heard of this method of aircraft propulsion. The possibility of using a reaction jet had interested aircraft designers for a long time, but initially the low speed of early aircraft and the unsuitability of a piston engine for producing the large high velocity airflow necessary for the jet presented many obstacles. The German engineer Hans von Ohain built the first running gas turbine engine. Doing this, as described in Part 2, but in all instances the resultant reaction or thrust exerted on the engine is proportional to the mass or weight of air expelled by the engine and to the velocity change ...
