Abstract : When it is required to define the cycle parameters and calculate the performance of a real engine, there are numerous practical constraints that need to be taken into account. These fall into two main categories: the limitations of available component technologies, and the operational considerations that are dependent on aircraft application. The lecture discusses the main technology limiters and indicates how they are incorporated into the cycle definition process.
