The aircraft is powered by a single General Electric GE-F404 afterburning
turbofan giving it high g and high angle-of-attack capabilities to mimic flight in modern fighter aircraft, with twin tails, 'stadium' seating (the aft seat higher than the front seat) and an advanced cockpit with embedded training.
had been working on a 30,000 pound thrust afterburning
turbojet for a Navy attack fighter that would dash to Mach 3.
Of course, when you're planning a flight during the SUA's stated Time of Use there's no way of telling if the SUA will be empty or swarming with afterburning
What is more, this afterburning
of the edges shifts the overall fire scenario to small surface flames accompanied by higher surface temperatures and probably thermo-oxidative pyrolysis, both of which reduce the residue.
Cycles of type 1, 2, 3 and 4 are related to the thermal cycle that determines the life cycle of the complete engine, while the type 2 cycle is related to the lifecycle of the afterburning
The L-15 Lift uses a Ukrainian-made afterburning
turbofan with full authority digital engine control software.
and turbofan afterburning
engines, combine to provide long range,
The energy from afterburning
is frequently exhausted to the atmosphere unused.
Enter the FA-18s, which carry two General Electric F404-GE-402 afterburning
engines, each capable of producing 18,000 pounds of thrust and up to 150 decibels (dB) of noise.
Dialing the clock ahead 53 years, FA-18s carry two General Electric F404-GE-402 afterburning
engines, capable of 18,000 pounds of thrust each and producing up to 150dB of noise
The Ecocool/T dryer, the latest model from Goss International, features a new integrated afterburner and pollution-control system that increases heat-exchange efficiency and reduces energy consumption -- for both drying and afterburning
-- up to 40%.
Unfortunately, there is no corresponding commercial market for high-performance afterburning
engines used on fighter aircraft.
