Figure 6.12: Turbojet with centrifugal compressor.
Figure 6.13: Turbojet with axial compressor.
A turbojet is basically what has been already exposed in Section 6.2. It is composed by an inlet, a compressor, a combustion chamber, a turbine, and a nozzle. The reader is referred back to Figure 6.2 as illustration. As already mentioned, there are two main types of turbojets depending on the type of compressor: axial or centrifugal. Figures 6.12-6.13 show schematic and real jet engines with centrifugal and axial flow, respectively.
