Which Materials are Used for Making an Aircraft Exhaust Nozzle?

In most modern aircraft, gas turbine engines are generally used. These engines are located either under the wings or the tail of the aircraft. It is the part responsible for propelling the aircraft forward. Because of the tremendous amount of energy these parts have to endure, the materials need to be able to withstand high temperature and pressure.   Although gas turbine engines can have different types, they always have common parts such as the fan, compressor, turbine, combustor, and exhaust nozzle. Each of these parts plays a specific role in the engine system. Among these parts,...

Tuned Exhaust: How it Impacts your Aircraft Engine

A tuned exhaust system is an option for some aircraft piston engines. Installation of a tuned exhaust engine can result in increased engine efficiency, increased power, and better performance. To better understand how it works and differs from a traditional engine, we need to know how a traditional engine works. Related: How Does an Aircraft Exhaust System Affect Engine Performance?  Your engine goes through four "strokes" during the combustion process. The Intake, compression, combustion, and exhaust strokes. An "intake" valve is located at the top of the cylinder. During the intake stroke, the piston moves down the cylinder, sucking a new...
