Boeing 777 Engine Diameter.

Wed Apr 26, 2006 9:38 pm

Are the engine diameters(size) mounted on the Boeing 777 the same? I saw SQ 777 at Hyderabad (HYD) felt engine size looked smaller..maybe my eyes got bigger cos of the booze!!

Same compared to? But look at it this way, they are the diameter of a 737 Fuselage.

Without looking it up I would hazard a guess that there is some size difference between the Rolls Royce engines and the GE-90s. Probably not much but the RR engines always look slimmer but longer to me. That said, as Cadet57 put it they are as wide as a 737 so they are big ass no matter what.

The GE90-94B (on the 772A & 772ER) is 134 inches in diameter, while the GE90-115B (on the 773A, 773ER, 772LR) is 135 inches in diameter. Hardly noticable.

As compared to the engines the other companies make for the T7. Like difference in diameter between RR, GE, etc.

P.S: Does P&W still exist?

It appears to me that on the 772ER, GE is the biggest and RR is the smallest, with PW in the middle. The difference is only a few inches.

I know the RR Trent 892 is only 110 inches in diameter as seen on the AA picture above, whereas the GE-90 is 135 inches. In fact the engine nacelle is, I believe, the same on GE90- 76, 94, and 115B. It is in fact the fan that is slightly larger. Because of the composite blades used in the 115b they are able to use a closer fit in the nacelle. The composites do not expand and contract near as much as titanium, or aluminum blades would. the P&W engine is 112 inches. There is therefore a fairly signifaicant difference in the ngines. In fact, I think the 777, 757 and the 747 have the most distinguishable engines differences.

GE90s are noticably larger than the RRs. For me, 777 + GE90s = one smooth looking aircraft!  Smile

SQ have Trents on theirs which is probably why you noticed the difference in size.

Cheers,

Alright, here ya go:
Trent 800: 279cm
PW4000: 294cm(as far as I know)
GE90-76-94: 312cm
GE90-110/115: 324cm

These are all the fan diameters of the 777 engines!

As a comparison, the trent 500 of the A345/A346 is 246cm, and the trent 900 of the A380 is 296cm(As far as I know)

Hope this helps

cheers, Konstantin G.

There's a picture floating around of a BA 772A with the GE 90 parked next to a BA 737. It was arranged so that the engine was right in front of the 737. The nacelle is bascially the same size as the 737. Swanky... Big grin
This isn't where I parked my car...

Thanks for all the posts. I think its really interesting to try and identify each engine.
The GE90 is just huge, and has the titanium leading edge blades, and they are swept if its a 110/115B
The Rolls Royce is smaller (but still huge!), and has a kind of arched sweep to them.
And the Pratts... well the pratts are unremarkable.

I think some people are talking about fan diameter dimensions and some are talking about external engine nacelle diameters.

Becuase a.net owns MyAviation, and MA is a repository for photos that don't make it past the screeners. IMO there's plenty of photos that have passed screeners that couldn't hold water to a MA shot..  Wink
