I’m wondering where exactly does the suppression material go into the engine? Does it all flow into the core or is it distributed to different places. It is distributed with some nozzles. But the exact position of them depends on the specific engine. In this slides you can get an idea of the positions for a turboprop engine. They usually cover at least the ...

Since P Factor is primarily variation of AOA of a thrust producing blade when its rotation axis is not aligned with the air stream, you should see some P factor in a turbofan engine, to the extent that the inlet flow strikes the front of the fan from an angle. I say "some" because the cowl inlet is going to align the inflow to be more perpendicular ...

Since the production of the 737-100 and -200 was concurrent, there were in fact -200s with blow-in doors, and more often than not, the inlet was replaced during the airframe's lifetime. An example is United's N9003U, line number 12, a 737-200: Sources: jetphotos.com and airliners.net The doors are spring-loaded and open by differential pressure at medium-...

MCP is maximum power that can be used indefinitely without shortening the life of the engine. You might use MCP when you need all the available power during single engine cruise, to maintain an altitude for obstacle clearance, or when climbing single engine. MTOP is normal maximum for takeoff and initial climb, with a time limit. If you exceed the time ...
