A type of gas turbine in which the fan driving air into a turbojet also forces additional air around the outside of the turbine, combining it with the exhaust of the turbojet to provide thrust. Turbofans are quieter than simple turbojets and somewhat more fuel efficient, and are widely used in commercial aircraft.

0
A type of gas turbine in which air, drawn into a combustion chamber by fans, is rapidly heated by combusted fuel, creating air pressure that drives turbines and provides jet propulsion. The turbines drive the fans, while the air and exhaust expelled from the rear of the engine provide the forward thrust.
