JTF-17A: Anybody Know Anything About This?

Wed Jan 24, 2007 10:39 am

I know it was a low-bypass continuously-afterburning turbofan, designed primarily for the L-2000-7A SST.

I'm just wondering if there is any more information available on this engine?

I believe it had 50000+ lb of thrust dry and 63000 lb of thrust wet.

I actually already knew that part. I thought it was 61,000 or 62,000 lbs wet (53,000 lbs dry). But I was more wondering stuff like what it's bypass ratio was, it's diamater and length, fuel efficency, etc.

Try this link, it will lead you to a report about the JTF17A-20B for the Boeing Model 733-394:

Thank you for your help.

The only thing left basically would be... Do you have any idea what the bypass-ratio was, or how many compressor/turbine stages there are?

You might want to read this thread: GE GE4/J5P & PW JTF-17 Size (by 747400sp Feb 18 2006 in Tech Ops)

Quoting B2707SST (Reply 3):
The JTF17A-21L proposed for the Lockheed L-2000 was a low-bypass turbofan with afterburning capability in the bypass duct only (a "duct-burning turbofan"). It was to generate 60,760 lbs. of augmented or 38,130 lbs. of non-augmented thrust at takeoff. Bypass ratio was 1.3:1.

I might be able to find some information on the JTF-17 compressor/turbine stages...but the key word is 'might.'

I have a book with the history of every aircraft engine manufacturer in the world that has ever existed throughout history. However, it is at my house on on side of the state, with my university's dorm (where I am currently at) on the other. I will try to drive home this weekend (weather permitting) and look this up.

I would say, think about a P&W 2000 size JT8.
