Special Issue Description

A continuous-flow internal combustion engine is referred to as a gas turbine or combustion turbine. A spinning gas compressor, a combustor, and a compressor-driving turbine are the fundamental components that are shared by all gas turbine engines and make up the power-producing section (sometimes referred to as the gas generator or core). The gas generator needs to have extra parts to fit its intended use. An air intake is a feature that all have in common, although they are all configured differently to meet the needs of flying at different speeds, from supersonic to stationary to land use. The addition of a propelling nozzle provides thrust for flight. At subsonic flying speeds, a second turbine is used to power a turboprop or ducted fan, which reduces fuel consumption (by improving propulsive efficiency). A second turbine is also necessary to power an electrical generator, a maritime propeller, a land vehicle’s turboshaft, or a helicopter’s rotor (power turbine). The inclusion of an afterburner increases the thrust-to-weight ratio for flying. Gases go through four thermodynamic processes in an ideal gas turbine: isentropic compression, isobaric combustion (constant pressure), isentropic expansion, and heat rejection. The Brayton cycle is made up of all of them. When gas is compressed in a true gas turbine, mechanical energy is permanently transformed into pressure and thermal energy (owing to internal friction and turbulence) (in either a centrifugal or axial compressor). The combustion chamber is heated, which causes the gas’s specific volume to rise and its pressure to slightly decrease. Again, irreversible energy change takes place as the turbine expands via the stator and rotor passageways. Instead of rejecting heat, fresh air is drawn in.

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
