Turbofan components list

Hallo everybody,
i am new in this forum and i have following problem:i am trying to design a turbine (turbofan) with catia v5. I know the main parts of a turbine but i am looking for some sort of parts list. Does anybody know a website where i can find something like that.
Thanks

I think you'll be out of luck. Everything that would show the individual parts and their dimensions (bearings, blades, tubes, whatever) would be proprietary. If you use really old turbofans you might be able to contact the companies for drawings.

Otherwise you could probably get close by looking at propulsion textbooks, patent applications, Janes books. Some of the aviation/aerospace periodicals also produce an engine guide once per year with a bunch of specifications, but the name of the periodical that I've used is escaping me at the moment.

I was gonna say compressor, combustion chamber, turbine, and exhaust. But you know those already. Thats about the limit of my expertise.

There's not much to a simple turbine. I have looked into making one out of a turbo charger, but never got the initiative to go through with it. There are plenty of websites that give information on how to convert a turbo to a jet engine on the web if you're interested. Just google it.

Other than that, if you want to build a straight flow turbine, have fun! (if you've ever seen a turbo, you'll know that it can not be straight flow) That's just way too much work when pratt & whitney, GE, or any other number of turbine manufacturers has already done that for you.

If you're wanting to buy something similar HP or thrust to a DIY turbo turbine there are all kinds of small turboshaft engines or jet engines for RC planes. Come with all the electronics to run them too for $3-4K. Will be far easier to use and more reliable than something you've welded together out of a junkyard turbo in your back yard.

This is very true. That is probably the best way to go. The newer ones also have auto start functions that do just about all of the work for you to start it. Really amazing machines.

I think even a lot of the older ones do. RC engines don't get much cooler than turbines, if I could justify the cash...They're worth it just purely for the sound, seriously.

The sound is awesome. You're forgetting the smell and most importantly......the SPEED!! I've always wanted a turbine(because I want something that goes fast, I'm mainly a 3D guy), but I just can't do it. Esspecially with how involved I am in full scale aviation.
