Turbprop or turbojet engines are the main means of providing motivepower for flight. Any improvements which can be made to thesetechnologies in terms of power or fuel efficiency are significantand important developments. After first setting the scene with a short account of aeroenginedevelopment, the book goes on to show how a super-turbochargedaeroengine can be significantly more efficient. A detailed accountof the studies into the new design philosophy is given and thenumerical results of the computational model of this engine designmodel are analysed. The unusual design of these piston engine unitsis theoretically modelled and their mechanical design is discussedin some detail.
