Introduction to Gas Turbines Engines Types . 1-Turbofan : The turbofan or fanjet is a type of airbreathing jet engine that is widely used in aircraft propulsion. The word "turbofan" is a portmanteau of "turbine" and "fan": the turbo portion refers to a gas turbine enginewhich achieves mechanical energy from combustion,and the fan, a ducted fan that uses the mechanical energy from the gas turbine to accelerate air rearwards. . 2-Turbojet: The turbojet is a turbofan , but in this engine there is no pybass. . 3-Turboprop: A turboprop engine is a turbine engine that drives an aircraft propeller. In contrast to a turbojet, the engine's exhaust gases do not contain enough energy to create significant thrust, since almost all of the engine's power is used to drive the propeller. . 4-Turboshaft: A turboshaft engine is a form of gas turbine which is optimized to produce shaft power rather than jet thrust.
