This promising aviation the engine is considered the largest of all recently developed in our country. Now in Russia they have assembled a gas generator for such a giant aircraft engine PD-35 (35 tons - thrust parameters).
This was reported by the press service of the state corporation "Rostec".
The generator for the new aircraft engine is now being bench tested. According to Alexander Inozemtsev, general designer of UEC-Aviadvigatel, the enterprises where this unit is developing should show how efficient it is. In addition, the tests are supposed to take measurements, determine the main parameters of the components and compare them with those stated in the terms of reference.
The design of the gas generator, which is called the "heart of the engine", includes a combustion chamber, a compressor and a turbine. Its elements are designed to work under high pressure conditions.
Upon completion of work on the PD-35 aircraft engine, it is going to be installed on wide-body passenger aircraft intended for long-distance flights. The United Engine Corporation, which is part of the Rostec structure, has been developing it since 2017.
