jet thrust

Jet Thrust

 

the force of the reaction to a jet of gases or other working fluid flowing out of the nozzle of a jet engine. The jet thrust is the resultant of the pressure of the working fluid on the restricting surfaces of the engine; it is directed along the axis of the nozzle in the opposite direction to the vector of the exhaust velocity of the working fluid.

jet thrust

The thrust of a fluid, especially as distinguished from the thrust of a propeller.

Each of the 10 cold gas thrusters will eject compressed air through propelling nozzles to generate a cold jet thrust. The air tanks powering the thrusters are based on the "composite overwrapped pressure vessel" (COPV) also used in the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets.
For a jet-powered airplane, power loading may be determined as pounds of weight per pounds of jet thrust. This is represented as Formula 2 on the opposite page.
We stood on the beach and were blasted so hard by the jet thrust of one plane that we were knocked to the sand.
While cars used in land-speed-record attempts, like the Bloodhound jet car that will attempt the challenge in 2012, and certain types of boat have taken advantage of jet thrust since the 1950s, all record-breaking motorbikes have used a conventional engine that drives the rear wheel.
Because jet thrust depends upon high-velocity flow through a narrow aperture, the wide velar apertures and oblate bells of L.
It's a magnificent power plant and one that takes its name, Jet Thrust Stoichiometric, from its combustion system.

The engine takes its name - Jet Thrust Stoichiometric - from a specific combustion system in which the injectors work directly in the combustion chamber.
For thrust vectoring, the figure of merit is primarily jet thrust vector angle and gross thrust coefficient.
Each will consist of an electric pump to recharge an air tank ejecting compressed air through propelling nozzles to generate a cold jet thrust. The air tanks are based on the "composite overwrapped pressure vessel" (COPV) also used in the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets.
