Turbofan Engine

An animation of a turbofan engine. This is a 2-spool, high-bypass turbofan. The high pressure spool (yellow) acts as a gas turbine generating a powerful jet of exhaust gas which drives the rotation of the low pressure spool (turquoise). The low pressure spool rotation aids compression for the turbine and rotates the fan, the fan provides additional thrust.
