One of the nice things about research papers and reports is that you get to do research...

I'd suggest going over to http://www.google.com and searching for these items related to jet engines and their development...

A book that KSUWILDCAT mentioned is really worth reading. All the details you need.


I seriously think I just creamed my pants without any influence from any outside variables.

Another book I enjoyed was 'Turbulent Skies' it is really a history of commercial aviation but has great information on the development of gas turbine engines!
