IT is usually supposed that the designer of a gas turbine engine has considerable freedom in choosing the pressures, temperatures and other features. Indeed this apparent flexibility has been claimed as an inherent advantage of the gas turbine, which enables it to be tailor‐made for any prescribed duty.
