Results of low cost gas turbine engine design studies are presented. System requirements are discussed and their effects on engine design and cost are analyzed. Parametric performance data are presented and the use of these data in engine build cost trades is discussed. The evolution of specific component fabrication techniques on selected components is discussed, and the overall effect on the engine cost is analyzed and described. The technique of achieving low manufacturing costs by the use of innovative design, keyed to operational requirements rather than new processes, is described. The accessory problem is discussed and a potentially low cost fuel control concept described. A cross section drawing of a simple production turbojet is shown and the use of a technique for low cost design is outlined.
