Rolls Royce Use 3 Shafts on theirs as compared to the 2 shafts used on the GE & PW models

Trent_800,

Would that mean you'd get N1,N2,N3 on the RRs, while only N1 and N2 on the GE/PWs?

Yes:- Apparently RR say that they have the Three shaft design so that each shaft can run closer to its optimum speed.

Wouldn´t it also change (improve?) dynamic behaviour? (Thrust change)
