Axial-flow Engine

An axial-flow engine is a jet engine in which the general flow of air is along the longitudinal axis of the engine. A turbojet engine that utilizes an axial-flow compressor and turbine. An Axial-flow engine is built around a long horizontal axis, with a compressor on one end, and a turbine on the other end. The single combustion chamber is located between them. The hot gases, which are the product of combustion, are blown rearwards, propelling the turbine as they provide thrust by the principle of reaction.
