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.

J79 - Turbine Engines: A Closer Look
A guided tour of the J79 turbojet engine, from intake to afterburner. This is the cutaway display we have in front of our shop at S&S Turbine Services, where we overhaul and repair industrial gas turbine engines for customers all over the world.

Afterburner vs. Snow
We test run a J79-J1E with afterburner on a sunny, snowy, freezing cold day. There are a few new people with us, and they prove that "everybody loves afterburners !"

Rolls Royce Olympus
Test run: Rolls Royce Olympus at S&S Turbines open-air test cell. One of the largest turbojet engines, about 40 thousand Hp in the industrial version shown here. Looking in the front at startup, you can clearly see the freshly cleaned elements of the low-pressure compressor: First are the struts, which hold the front main bearing firmly in place. The LP rotating shaft is supported by this bearing. Second, you see the copper-colored inlet guide vanes. On many engines these are able to move, but in the Olympus they are fixed. Then the blades of the first stage of the turning compressor shaft. They are made of solid titanium alloy, and it took 2 days to hand polish them. Next, the first stage of compression is made complete by stator vanes, which are directly behind the spinning blades. The Olympus is closely related to the engine used the Avro Vulcan Bomber, and a later, uprated version was used in the Concorde. Both used four engines, with afterburner on the Concorde. This engine does not have an afterburner. This engine is used to generate electricity. A lot of it!

Two 9 Cylinder Radial Engines - Start and Run - Sternmotor
Der erste Ausschnitt aus meiner DVD Stationärmotorentreffen Burkhardtsdorf 2011 ( 50 Miinuten, siehe Homepage ) Start und lauf von zwei Sternmotoren. Zuerst läuft der kleinere Wilga Sternmotor mit 10L Hubraum. Anschliessend wird der Antonov Sternmotor mit 30 Litern Hubraum und 1000PS vorbereitet und gestartet. Das war ein eindrucksvolles Erlebnis. Die Lautstärke ist unvorstellbar! First start a Wilga Radial Engine. After this run comes the Antonov Star Engine, a very impressive engine! 9 Zylinder Sternmotor Er stammt aus einem PZL-104 "Wilga 35" Flugzeug.

Sabre Jet Engine: first start
The first start and initial test run of the Orenda type 14 turbojet that we have been working on for almost a year now... you and me! It's been a lot of work, and now it's all on the line as we crank this baby up, hit the sparks and spray those combustors with Jet A. It was an exciting and Exhausting day... A special note: this is not a hot start, but fairly typical of the older generations of turbojets to have flames shoot out the tailpipe on startup. The video response is from Burning Man participant Kunal Dovedy, and the engine section he used is the exact one featured in my video "dropped into a turbine engine".

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose.[2] Known as the 'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion. "Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at the flywheel end."[3] Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg) and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to fruition.[2] One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s. Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc (5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV. It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive 3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300 kW)". By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x 254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well established in motor boat racing.[2] In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬ ★ MORE INTERESTING VIDEOS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrbwGmtZ8pM&list=UUYH8swcp71EHt-88lkaMDTQ ★ SUBSCRIBE: http://goo.gl/GynuUU ★ Follow my Twitter: https://twitter.com/GeorgeDominik1 ★ Thanks For Watching ★ ★ Post comment , share and tell us what u think ★ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬

Link to new HQ Widescreen version of this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrj9yaTFNAg&feature=channel_page In 1986 two school friends made a simple backyard jet, maybe this was the start of a life long world wide hobby. Today jet builders around the world can easily see each others efforts in creating backyard jet chaos. A sure fire way to really make friends with neighbours, even ones streets away. Episode 2 is now available and a invitation is posted on that video for a oppunity to be involved in episode 3. Jet builders and collectors around the world will enjoy this video, and hopefully inspire others to take up the Backyard Jet hobby.
