The gas turbine is the World’s most complex and versatile heat engine used worldwide for aircraft propulsion, marine applications and power generation. The technology evolution developed since Whittle’s first successful demonstration in 1937 is an exciting story of design innovation using many engineering disciplines. This paper, from a designer’s perspective, covers key design and manufacturing innovations that were developed to produce today’s engines with high specific power, efficiency and durability.
