Q1: Yes the afterburner pipe and nozzle interiors can hit upwards of 1800-2000° F during full throttle operations. Q2: Most engines have ceramic linings in the afterburner can and nozzle petals to protect the metallic parts from the high heat. In his book Sled Driver, Maj Brian Shul remarks about witnessing J58 engine test runs post maintenance out at ...

Compressor exit temperature and turbine inlet temperature are the hottest regions, front and back of combustor respectively. However, it is rare that TIT is directly measured. Most times the inter turbine temperature (ITT - ARP station 4.5) and station 5 (EGT - exit of the low pressure turbine, back of the core stream) are measured and mathematical and ...

To supplement Jan Hudec's answer, you are also looking at the engine casing itself. When the engine is installed in the aircraft there is additional nacelle material surrounding it so that even at full power the metal glowing will not be seen looking at it from the side. (although in afterburner you will see the flame) But the answer is yes, a typical jet ...

This parameter is called Turbine Inlet Temperature (TIT) Turbine Inlet Temperature (TIT) is the temperature of the combustion chamber exhaust gases as they enter the turbine unit. The gas temperature is measured by a number of thermocouples mounted in the exhaust stream and is presented on a flight deck gauge in either degrees Fahrenheit or ...

Depends on the section of the engine in question. The 'hot section' of a jet engine gas core, which consists of the isobaric combustor, high pressure turbine and low pressure turbine, by far, operates at the highest temperatures. On modern, high performance aviation gas turbines, the high pressure turbine inlet temperatures are reaching nearly 3,600° F ...

Transport aircraft are certificated to a maximum operating temperature for departure that is related to International Standard Atmosphere (ISA), typically 35 deg C above ISA (there may be airplanes certified to ISA +40), ISA being 15C at sea level and dropping from there at the standard adiabatic lapse rate . ISA temperature at Phoenix airport at 1135 ft ...
