AED-076
Introduction to AED concepts - 2020

Propulsion fundamentals

Turbo-fan, turbo-prop engine and helicopter turbine

OBJECTIVE :

This course deals with the numerous types of engines, the double-flow double-core turbofan principle and the technologies used depending on the engine parts.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 1 day (7 hours).

GENERAL APPROACH :

This course is dedicated to engineers and technicians who want to know about not only the turbofan principle but also the technologies and devices used depending on the different engine sub-parts.

The speaker ensures an easy understanding of the various domains.

The slides are well illustrated.

PREREQUISITE :

Level: Basic

This course is dedicated to engineers and technicians.
