To my understanding, turbofan engines get the majority of their thrust from the fan in front of the engine, up to around 70-80% while the core flow generates around 20-30%.
Forward movement is achieved by utilizing Newtons 3rd law - by moving masses of air backwards and thereby moving the aircraft forward.
The thrust will first push the engine forward, and then the engine mounting, and then the wing and the aircraft as a whole - but how exactly is the load from the fast moving thrust air taken up by the engine internals?
As wings generate lift, they bend to a varying degree. Do the fan and engine internals, e.g compressor and turbine blades bend as well? I can imagine the fan taking up a tremendous amount of thrust load and wants to leave the engine and travel forward out the housing.
How much of this is true? Any input or suggested reading on this is highly appreciated!
