Components of jet engines - Wikipedia
Diagram of a typical gas turbine jet engine. Air is compressed by the fan blades as it enters the engine, and it is mixed and burned with fuel in the combustion section. The hot exhaust gases provide forward thrust and turn the turbines which drive the compressor fan blades. 1. Intake 2. Low pressure compression 3. High pressure compression 4.
Turbofan - Wikipedia
OverviewPrinciplesCommon typesTurbofan configurationsOverall performanceEarly turbofansThe turbofan or fanjet is a type of airbreathing jet engine that is widely used in aircraft propulsion. The word "turbofan" is a portmanteau of "turbine" and "fan": the turbo portion refers to a gas turbine engine which achieves mechanical energy from combustion, and the fan, a ducted fan that uses the mechanical energy from the gas turbine to accelerate air rearwards. Thus, whereas all the air taken in by a turbojet passes through the turbine, in a turbofan some of that air bypasses the turbineSee more on enpedia · Text under CC-BY-SA license
Why Composite Fan Blades Will Propel Future Jet Engines
“This is great for overall engine performance by matching the entire low pressure fan and turbine system to peak performance,” Kray says. “It’s something the engineers have been asking for.” The blades still retain their beautiful, sinuous curves, forward sweep, a hook at the top and the belly in the center.

The turbine blades are connected to a long axle (represented by the middle gray line) that runs the length of the engine. The compressor and the fan are also connected to this axle. So, as the turbine blades spin, they also turn the compressor and the fan. The hot exhaust gases exit the engine through a
