Detailed Gas Turbine video

Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:32 pm

Hello All,

I think this is one of the better videos I've seen on gas turbines;

https://youtu.be/4bAv9beP1B0

It definitely gets into detail about the internal, secondary (cooling and sealing) air systems used in

turbomachinery and the general construction and mechanical arrangement of these machines.

Regards, JetMech

Thanks for sharing, JetMech!

If you haven't already, I would highly recommend you subscribe to AgentJayZ's YouTube channel.

Just an unbelievable treasure trove of all things gas turbines. Hundreds of videos, Q&As, and demonstrations. This "AgentJayZ" is a very Canadian (and I mean this is in the kindest way) mechanic that runs an overhaul shop for industrial and aviation gas turbines. There are some real gems in there.

For example, you can't beat watching a fighter jet engine running up to full afterburner in snowy weather (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb6BoaB-atQ). His channel is for the general public, but is geared towards students in A&P. I'd be surprised if even you didn't learn a thing or two from one of his videos :).

Check out his channel, and let us know what you think!

Hi RJ,

No problems with the video! I thought it was a good one so I was keen to share.

I'm already subscribed to AgentJayZ and have spent much time watching his videos.

I do like the afterburner ones :) . I can't believe how close he and his colleagues get to these engines on full song!
