An afterburner (or a reheat) is a component present on some jet engines, mostly those used on military supersonic aircraft.
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is a professional society for the field of aerospace engineering.
Centrifugal compressors, sometimes termed radial compressors, are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing turbomachinery.
The Grumman F9F/F-9 Cougar is an aircraft carrier-based fighter aircraft for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps.
The Grumman F9F Panther is one of the United States Navy's first successful carrier-based jet fighters, as well as Grumman’s first jet fighter.
Leonard S. (Luke) Hobbs (1896–1977) was an American aeronautical engineer who started in 1920 with the Army Air Service at McCook Field in Dayton, Ohio and later worked for Stromberg Motor Devices Corporation.
This is an alphabetical list of aircraft engines by manufacturer.
The Lockheed F-94 Starfire was a first-generation jet aircraft of the United States Air Force.
The North American YF-93 was an American fighter development of the F-86 Sabre that emerged as a radically different variant that received its own designation.
Pratt & Whitney is an American aerospace manufacturer with global service operations.
The Rolls-Royce Avon was the first axial flow jet engine designed and produced by Rolls-Royce.
Rolls-Royce was a British luxury car and later an aero engine manufacturing business established in 1904 by the partnership of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce.
The Rolls-Royce RB.41 Nene was a 1940s British centrifugal compressor turbojet engine.
The Rolls-Royce RB.44 Tay was a British turbojet engine of the 1940s, an enlarged version of the Rolls-Royce Nene designed at the request of Pratt & Whitney.

In internal combustion engines, water injection, also known as anti-detonant injection (ADI), can spray water into the incoming air or fuel-air mixture, or directly into the cylinder to cool certain parts of the induction system where "hot points" could produce premature ignition.
