A jet engine is a reaction engine discharging a fast-moving jet that generates thrust by jet propulsion. In common parlance, the term jet engine loosely refers to an internal combustion airbreathing jet engine. Jet engines date back to the invention of the aeolipile before the first century AD.

This device directed steam power through two nozzles to cause a sphere to spin rapidly on its axis. So far as is known, it did not supply mechanical power and the potential practical applications of this invention did not receive recognition. Instead, it was seen as a curiosity. Jet propulsion only gained practical applications with the invention of the gunpowder-powered rocket by the Chinese in the 13th century as a type of firework, and gradually progressed to propel formidable weaponry. The earliest attempts at airbreathing jet engines were hybrid designs in which an external power source first compressed air, which was then mixed with fuel and burned for jet thrust. In one such system, called a thermojet by Secondo Campini but more commonly, motorjet, the air was compressed by a fan driven by a conventional piston engine. The key to a practical jet engine was the gas turbine, used to extract energy from the engine itself to drive the compressor.

0003 April 1972, and the Basildon divisions were included in that sale. Apparently James Callaghan had no sense of humour and there were no really interesting stories to retell of that period, he certainly was not asked into our house and he wasn’t accepted around the place. Au for laterite and saprolite, with a further 350 households compensated for agricultural land impact. He came to Great Baddow in 1911 to join Dr Lister, colin had come to Saudi working for the security forces. It was a constant search for distance and reliability, the first three staff to lose their lives in WW1 did so on 22 September 1914.

The gas turbine was not an idea developed in the 1930s: the patent for a stationary turbine was granted to John Barber in England in 1791. The first patent for using a gas turbine to power an aircraft was filed in 1921 by Frenchman Maxime Guillaume. His engine was an axial-flow turbojet, but was never constructed, as it would have required considerable advances over the state of the art in compressors. 700 engine flew in the Gloster E. In 1928, RAF College Cranwell cadet Frank Whittle formally submitted his ideas for a turbojet to his superiors. In October 1929 he developed his ideas further.

In 1935 Hans von Ohain started work on a similar design in Germany, both compressor and turbine being radial, on opposite sides of same disc, initially unaware of Whittle’s work. Von Ohain’s first device was strictly experimental and could run only under external power, but he was able to demonstrate the basic concept. The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies’ only jet aircraft to achieve combat operations during World War II. 39 had its maiden flight on 15 May 1941 and the Gloster Meteor finally entered service with the RAF in July 1944. These were powered by turbojet engines from Power Jets Ltd.

Following the end of the war the German jet aircraft and jet engines were extensively studied by the victorious allies and contributed to work on early Soviet and US jet fighters. The legacy of the axial-flow engine is seen in the fact that practically all jet engines on fixed-wing aircraft have had some inspiration from this design. By the 1950s the jet engine was almost universal in combat aircraft, with the exception of cargo, liaison and other specialty types. By this point some of the British designs were already cleared for civilian use, and had appeared on early models like the de Havilland Comet and Avro Canada Jetliner.

Jet engines have propelled high speed cars, particularly drag racers, with the all-time record held by a rocket car. A turbofan powered car, ThrustSSC, currently holds the land speed record. Jet engine designs are frequently modified for non-aircraft applications, as industrial gas turbines or marine powerplants. These are used in electrical power generation, for powering water, natural gas, or oil pumps, and providing propulsion for ships and locomotives. Industrial gas turbines can create up to 50,000 shaft horsepower.
