Technology and Inovation Technology Speed of Civil Jet Engines

By Stefan Frei and Urban Mäder

Abstract

Abstract. In this paper, the speed of technology of civil jet engines is investigated. A fundamental limit is found to exist by the second law of thermodynamics, but it is not reached yet. A technology measure based on airplane efficiency is derived and applied to jet airlines of different sizes and time periods, ranging back to the 1960’s. 1
