Before we can dive into how turbofan engines work, we need to first look at the core functionality of a turbojet engine. This is because the only difference between the two is an added fan placed in front of a turbojet’s core engine. This fan is encased in its own inlet and increases airspeed and thus pressure, ultimately resulting in an increase in overall exit thrust. This enhancement occurs without the need of additional fuel, making turbofans the engine standard for airliners because of their fuel efficiency. There are four main parts of a jet engine that air flow passes through that need to be explained to understand just how thrust is produced. These parts are where air enters an engine inlet and meets the compressor to, when it passes through the combustor, turbine, and exits out the nozzle.
Rolls Royce recently announced its plans to start operating a Jet Engine testbed at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas. Rolls-Royce will be taking over the 444,00 square ft. test facility, formally owned by Texas Aero Engine Services LLC. The testing facility was purchased with intent to test run all Rolls-Royce Trent Engines, which will allow for further support of its growing fleet. Rolls Royce is currently in the process of unveiling three new huge civil aero engines into service.
In November of 2017, CFM International signed a huge deal with the company Gulf Air. Gulf Air bought fifty-eight engines from CFM International, ranging in price and scale. The total cost of the agreement was over $1.9 billion dollars, placing Gulf Air on the map as a powerhouse of an airline company. The deal supplied parts for their Airbus fleets and gave them a few extra engines for future use. Not only did the deal supply Gulf Air with the parts, there was also a long-term deal written into the order.
