EngineSim Version 1.5b

Logo for EngineSim Version 1.5b
This software allows you to investigate how a jet engine produces thrust by changing the values of different engine parameters. Included are ramjet, turbojet, and turbofan engines. Altitude, flight speed, and engine component performance parameters are included among the many input variables provided in this engine simulation software developed by the NASA Glenn Research Center.

Excellent interactive resource for high-schoolers.

This site provides an excellent interactive cause and effect simulation for today's jet engines and turbines. By changing one condition of the engine, the resultant changes to other operating conditions is observed. Loading of the java applet for simulation takes a while, even with broadband, and wouldn't be recommended for dial up users.
