The goal of this major qualifying project was to design and manufacture a small gas turbine engine. The manufactured components included: axial turbine, stator, diffuser, compressor inlet, shaft, outer casing, combustion chamber, fuel distributer, exhaust nozzle, and inlet flange. We reviewed literature regarding gas turbine engine components, designed each component, and manufactured them accordingly. We then assembled our engine and planned for testing.
