 Engine Power Engine power or horsepower is the maximum power that an engine can put out. It can be expressed in kilowatts or horsepower. The power output depends on the size and design of the engine, but also on the speed at which it is running and the load or torque [...More...] "Engine Power" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Power (physics) In physics, power is the rate of doing work, the amount of energy transferred per unit time. Having no direction, it is a scalar quantity. In the International System of Units, the unit of power is the joule per second (J/s), known as the watt in honour of James Watt, the eighteenth-century developer of the steam engine condenser. Another common and traditional measure is horsepower (comparing to the power of a horse). Being the rate of work, the equation for power can be written: power = work time displaystyle text power = frac text work text time The integral of power over time defines the work performed. Because this integral depends on the trajectory of the point of application of the force and torque, this calculation of work is said to be path dependent. As a physical concept, power requires both a change in the physical universe and a specified time in which the change occurs [...More...] "Power (physics)" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse Cruiseship A cruise ship or cruise liner is a passenger ship used for pleasure voyages, when the voyage itself, the ship's amenities, and sometimes the different destinations along the way (i.e., ports of call), are part of the experience. Transportation is not the only purpose of cruising, particularly on cruises that return passengers to their originating port (known as "closed-loop cruises"). On "cruises to nowhere" or "nowhere voyages", the ship makes 2–3 night round trips without any ports of call.[1] In contrast, dedicated transport oriented ocean liners do "line voyages" and typically transport passengers from one point to another, rather than on round trips. Traditionally, a liner for the transoceanic trade will be built to a higher standard than a typical cruise ship, including higher freeboard and stronger plating to withstand rough seas and adverse conditions encountered in the open ocean, such as the North Atlantic [...More...] "Cruiseship" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Junkers Jumo 205 The Junkers Junkers Jumo 205 aircraft engine was the most famous of a series of aircraft diesel engines that were the first, and for more than half a century the only successful aviation diesel powerplants. The Jumo 204 first entered service in 1932. Later engines of this type comprised the experimental Jumo 206 and Jumo 208, with the Jumo 207 produced in some quantity for the Junkers Junkers Ju 86P and -R high-altiude reconnaissance aircraft, and the 46-meter wingspan, six-engined Blohm & Voss Bv 222 Bv 222 Wiking flying boat.[1] All three of these variants differed in stroke and bore and supercharging arrangements [...More...] "Junkers Jumo 205" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Opposed-piston Engine An opposed-piston engine is a reciprocating internal combustion engine in which each cylinder has a piston at both ends, and no cylinder head.Contents1 Early first opposed piston engines 2 Advantages and drawbacks 3 Configurations 4 Assembly and function 5 Modern developments 6 Free-piston engine 7 See also 8 References 9 External linksEarly first opposed piston enginesAnimation of the Atkinson differential engineIn 1882 James Atkinson developed the Atkinson cycle, a variant of the four stroke Otto cycle.

The civilian model Ju 86B could carry ten passengers. Two were delivered to Swissair Swissair and five to Deutsche Luft Hansa. In addition a single civilian Ju 86Z was delivered to Sweden's AB Aerotransport.[2]Contents1 Design and development 2 Operational history 3 Surviving aircraft 4 Variants 5 Operators5.1 Military operators 5.2 Civil operators6 Specifications (Ju 86 R-2) 7 See also 8 References 9 External linksDesign and development In 1934, a specification for a modern twin-engined aircraft, capable of operating both as a high speed airliner for the German airline Luft Hansa and as a medium bomber for the nascent Luftwaffe, was issued to both Junkers Junkers and Heinkel [...More...] "Junkers Ju 86" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Blohm & Voss Ha 139 The Blohm & Voss Ha 139 was a German all-metal inverted gull wing floatplane. With its four engines it was at the time one of the largest float-equipped seaplanes that had been built. The inboard engines were mounted at the joint between the inboard anhedral and outboard dihedral wing sections, above the pylon-mounted floats. Further development of the Ha 139 led to the land based version Blohm & Voss BV 142 which had its first flight in October 1938.Contents1 Operational history 2 Variants 3 Specifications (Ha 139B/Umbau) 4 See also 5 References 6 External linksOperational historyA Ha 139 on board the catapult ship Friesenland.The aircraft were flown by Deutsche Luft Hansa Deutsche Luft Hansa on transatlantic routes between 1937 and 1939, predominately between Bathurst, The Gambia The Gambia and Natal, Brazil [...More...] "Blohm & Voss Ha 139" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info GE Aviation US\$ 26.261 billion (2016)[3] 0 - Equipment :: US\$ 11.6 bn 0 - Services 0  :: US\$ 14.7 bnOperating income US\$ 6.115 billion (2016)[3]Number of employees40,000 (2017)Parent General ElectricSubsidiaries GE Aviation GE Aviation Systems[4] Walter Aircraft Engines[5] GE Honda Aero Engines GE Honda Aero Engines (50%) CFM International (50%) Engine Alliance Engine Alliance (50%) Aviage Systems (50%) Dowty Propellers (100%) Avio Aero SpA (100%) CFM Materials (50%) XEOS(49%)Website www.geaviation.comGE Aviation, a subsidiary of General Electric, is headquartered in Evendale, Ohio, outside Cincinnati.

When coupled with an electric generator, it delivers 24 MW of electricity at 60 Hz with a thermal efficiency of 36 percent at ISO conditions.[1] The improved, 3rd generation, LM2500+ version of the turbine delivers 40,500 shp (30,200 kW) with a thermal efficiency of 39 percent at ISO conditions [...More...] "General Electric LM2500" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Turboshaft A turboshaft engine is a form of gas turbine which is optimized to produce shaft power rather than jet thrust. In concept, turboshaft engines are very similar to turbojets, with additional turbine expansion to extract heat energy from the exhaust and convert it into output shaft power. They are even more similar to turboprops, with only minor differences, and a single engine is often sold in both forms. Turboshaft Turboshaft engines are commonly used in applications that require a sustained high power output, high reliability, small size, and light weight. These include helicopters, auxiliary power units, boats and ships, tanks, hovercraft, and stationary equipment.Contents1 Overview 2 History 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksOverview A turboshaft engine may be made up of two major parts assemblies: the 'gas generator' and the 'power section' [...More...] "Turboshaft" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Brayton Cycle The Brayton cycle Brayton cycle is a thermodynamic cycle named after George Brayton who describes the workings of a constant-pressure heat engine. The original Brayton engines used a piston compressor and piston expander, but more modern gas turbine engines and airbreathing jet engines also follow the Brayton cycle. Although the cycle is usually run as an open system (and indeed must be run as such if internal combustion is used), it is conventionally assumed for the purposes of thermodynamic analysis that the exhaust gases are reused in the intake, enabling analysis as a closed system. The engine cycle is named after George Brayton George Brayton (1830–1892), the American engineer who developed it originally for use in piston engines, although it was originally proposed and patented by Englishman John Barber in 1791.[1] It is also sometimes known as the Joule cycle [...More...] "Brayton Cycle" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Gas Turbine A gas turbine, also called a combustion turbine, is a type of continuous combustion, internal combustion engine. There are three main components:An upstream rotating gas compressor; A downstream turbine on the same shaft; A combustion chamber or area, called a combustor, in between 1. and 2. above.A fourth component is often used to increase efficiency (turboprop, turbofan), to convert power into mechanical or electric form (turboshaft, electric generator), or to achieve greater power to mass/volume ratio (afterburner). The basic operation of the gas turbine is a Brayton cycle Brayton cycle with air as the working fluid. Fresh atmospheric air flows through the compressor that brings it to higher pressure. Energy Energy is then added by spraying fuel into the air and igniting it so the combustion generates a high-temperature flow [...More...] "Gas Turbine" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse picture info Celebrity Millennium GTS Millennium is the flagship of the Millennium-class cruise ships, operated by Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Cruises line.

Liners may also carry cargo or mail, and may sometimes be used for other purposes (e.g., for pleasure cruises or as hospital ships).[1] Cargo vessels running to a schedule are sometimes called liners.[2] The category does not include ferries or other vessels engaged in short-sea trading, nor dedicated cruise ships where the voyage itself, and not transportation, is the prime purpose of the trip. Nor does it include tramp steamers, even those equipped to handle limited numbers of passengers. Some shipping companies refer to themselves as "lines" and their container ships, which often operate over set routes according to established schedules, as "liners". Ocean liners are usually strongly built with a high freeboard to withstand rough seas and adverse conditions encountered in the open ocean [...More...] "Ocean Liner" on: Wikipedia Google Yahoo Parouse
