After more than two years in development, Aeolus is launched to deliver a modern and concise learning resource for jet engines!
What is Aeolus?
Aeolus is an educational platform that is aimed at younger engineers (or aspiring engineers) that want to learn more about jet engines or propulsion in general. It currently consists of 9 chapters that cover most basic areas of interest from component design, working cycle analysis and operation characteristics.
It has been a background project for us, as both the inclusion of information with the right degree of complexity and the production of over 65 new graphs, schematics and illustrations were both fairly time intensive. From the platform's homepage, you can navigate to all chapters or jump straight into a subsection using the full directory.
How is it any different than other resources?
Of course, we haven't redefined the principles of propulsion so you will be able to find most of the information provided in other places if you look for long enough. However, there are two reasons why we still felt that Aeolus was going to make a positive contribution among those resources:
Even though a huge amount of time and effort was put towards Aeolus, it is provided for free for everyone, as part of our educational goals.
Will there be new content?
Yes, we're looking into adding new and/or supplementary sections, but not in the immediate future. Having said that, if you've read or used Aeolus and have a suggestion for new content, please use the feedback form within the platform and we'll take that into account!
Also, if you would like to use any of our illustrations or graphs for your project/presentation (applies to non-commercial uses/applications), you are welcome to do so with attribution (either by writing JetX or our website URL). Again, if you have found Aeolus to be helpful in such a way, we'd love to hear from you through the feedback section at the platform.
