Increased Efficiency Gas Turbine Engines Outline Abstract As 5th generations Turbine Engines are being retired, the sixth generation ones have the challenge to increase both speed and performance. Engines as a system needs to increase the thrust to weight ratio, decrease fuel consumption and reduce the super alloys that needed for the build. Successful development of an increase efficiency gas turbine engine will happen by using carbon fiber and epoxy resin composites instead of metal, improving the shape of airfoils, using the latest thermodynamic technology and improving engine functionality. Introduction As 5th generations Turbine Engines are being retired, the sixth generation ones have the challenge to increase both speed and performance. Engines as a system needs to increase the thrust to weight ratio, decrease fuel consumption and reduce the super alloys that needed for the build. Successful development of an increase efficiency gas turbine engine will happen by using carbon fiber and epoxy resin composites instead of metal, improving the shape of airfoils, using the latest thermodynamic technology and improving engine functionality. In this paper, we present a series of techniques for increasing the efficiency of the gas turbines. These are pegged on the theories of aerodynamic (optimizing the performance of the airfoil) and improving the functionality of the turbine engines. The options; Improve shape of airfoils Increase pressure distribution The work
