Authors Abstract
Content
Since the first passenger-carrying aircraft went into service, each major new aircraft type has grown in size, weight, performance, reliability, and economics. Thus, history, plus a sharply increasing travel market, have provided statistics that define general requirements for development and growth needs of the powerplants for supersonic transports.
General Electric’s GE4 turbojet engine for the United States SST is examined, from a conceptual design and development program standpoint, against today’s airlines requirements. The important criteria of a reliable and mature engine for initial SST service is related to the prospect of that engine’s operational growth capability for the future, with emphasis on maintainability, safety, performance, and economics.
