The Selection of a Gas Turbine Engine

  • Richard T. C. Harman


Aircraft makers, oil companies, power utilities and a few other industries already have extensive experience in selecting engines to suit their requirements. Some other industries with power and heat requirements have not yet adopted gas turbine engines but could possibly benefit from their use. This chapter is written therefore for engineers without direct experience of gas turbines, and considers industrial applications only. Further information on engine selection can be found in reference 4D.
