Turbine Engine: full power ... LOUD!

This is more film of the GE LM1500 gas turbine engine running at the S&S Turbines open-air test cell. All the noise in the beginning is made by the start cart, which is a 90Hp turbine engine. Even when you hear the LM1500 start to wind up, it's not even running until you see the heat waves coming out the back of it. This happens when the operator opens the fuel valve at around 2,000 rpm. In the middle of the video, when the noise in an unbearable shriek, the engine is turning just over 7000 rpm, and is blowing hot air out the jetpipe to the tune of a little more than 15 thousand horsepower. The air flow through the engine at full power is about 150 pounds per second. In the view of the control room screen, the numbers are as follows from left to right along the top of the screen: EGT or Exhaust gas temperature in degrees Celsius, measured just after the last stage of the turbine, which is just behind the second green steel frame holding the engine. Next is RPM. This engine has basically one rotating shaft, and you can just barely see the 1st stage compressor blades moving on shutdown. Engine RPM is of this common shaft, upon which all compressor and turbine stages are mounted. 5,000 rpm is idle speed for this engine. Last, on the right, is lube oil pressure, in pounds per square inch. These engines have roller bearings, not journal bearings like a car engine, so oil pressure is mainly an indication of oil flow. A lot of flow is needed, because the oil is used as a coolant for the main bearings. The engine will run with no oil pressure, except the bearings will overheat, so monitoring of oil flow is very important. This is the same engine you see in "Starting a large turbine engine" Note: All references to podracers will be deleted. If you have to ask why, it can't be explained to you.

Testing a Starfighter Engine
Our GE J79-19 turbojet, out of an Italian air force Starfighter, being put through its paces, and burning several hundred gallons of sweet Jet-A in the process. My rear-engine camera was blown down the field, rescued and put on intake monitoring duty. It still couldn't keep still. I held my main camera, standing as close as I dared to the afterburner nozzle, and my knees actually buckled a bit every time it lit off. This engine makes some smoke because it has standard combustors (see my combustor videos), and passed the test with ease. It ran like a Swiss watch, er... like an Italian turbojet !

See Through Engine - 4K Slow Motion Visible Combustion
See Through Glass Head on Briggs and Stratton Internal Combustion Engine in Slow Motion and 4K Slow Motion. you can see just how and engine really works and the internal engine combustion process when we use our Phantom to film inside the engine in High Speed . We made a glass head for a Briggs and Stratton engine to make the combustion process visible.

Bird Strikes Jet Engine
General Electrics test jet engines. Among the many tests, it shoots birds into the jet engine fan-blades. I know what it feels like to be aircraft engine stalled in the mid-air, 6,500 feet above the ground. It happened to me back in 1991, near Agua Dulce airport, not far from Palmdale, CA. On the day, I flew Cessna 152, a two-seater small aircraft. I was on my way to Las Vegas. When I reached Barstow, I encountered strong gusty wind. I was jumping up and donw in the seat due to strong turbulence, my head started hitting the ceiling. Then I realized that if I was kept going, hitting a mountain peak was inevitable before I reached Las Vegas. Hence I decided to return to Van Nuys Airport. Then there was stronger head-wind on my way back home. It resulted airplane fuel consumption twice as much. Guess what happened next? I ran out of fuel. The engine stalled and I had to make an emergency landing at the Agua Dulce. Somehow I managed to make a perfect landing after two loops. Otherwise, it would've been dead long ago, and impossibe being here and writing this. by cacomfort.
