See also: Timeline of jet power Jet engines date back to the invention of the aeolipile before the first century AD. This device directed steam power through two nozzles to cause a sphere to spin rapidly on its axis. It was seen as a curiosity. Jet propulsion only gained practical applications with the invention of the gunpowder -powered rocket by the Chinese in the 13th century as a type of firework , and gradually progressed to propel formidable weaponry. Jet propulsion technology then stalled for hundreds of years.
Jet propulsion technology then stalled for hundreds of years. The earliest attempts at airbreathing jet engines were hybrid designs in which an external power source first compressed air, which was then mixed with fuel and burned for jet thrust. The Caproni Campini N. If aircraft performance were to increase beyond such a barrier, a different propulsion mechanism was necessary.
This was the motivation behind the development of the gas turbine engine, the commonest form of jet engine. The key to a practical jet engine was the gas turbine , extracting power from the engine itself to drive the compressor. The gas turbine was not a new idea: the patent for a stationary turbine was granted to John Barber in England in The first patent for using a gas turbine to power an aircraft was filed in by Maxime Guillaume. The Whittle W. Practical axial compressors were made possible by ideas from A.
Whittle would later concentrate on the simpler centrifugal compressor only.
Whittle was unable to interest the government in his invention, and development continued at a slow pace. Heinkel He , the world's first aircraft to fly purely on turbojet power In Hans von Ohain started work on a similar design in Germany, both compressor and turbine being radial, on opposite sides of same disc, initially unaware of Whittle's work.
Ohain was then introduced to Ernst Heinkel , one of the larger aircraft industrialists of the day, who immediately saw the promise of the design. Heinkel had recently downloadd the Hirth engine company, and Ohain and his master machinist Max Hahn were set up there as a new division of the Hirth company. They had their first HeS 1 centrifugal engine running by September Unlike Whittle's design, Ohain used hydrogen as fuel, supplied under external pressure.
The He was the world's first jet plane. A cutaway of the Junkers Jumo engine Austrian Anselm Franz of Junkers ' engine division Junkers Motoren or "Jumo" introduced the axial-flow compressor in their jet engine.
Jumo was assigned the next engine number in the RLM xx numbering sequence for gas turbine aircraft powerplants, "", and the result was the Jumo engine.
After many lesser technical difficulties were solved, mass production of this engine started in as a powerplant for the world's first jet- fighter aircraft , the Messerschmitt Me and later the world's first jet- bomber aircraft, the Arado Ar A variety of reasons conspired to delay the engine's availability, causing the fighter to arrive too late to improve Germany's position in World War II , however this was the first jet engine to be used in service.
