Jan 11, 2013 I wanted to celebrate by making a video of my favorite aircraft engine, the GE B. The fan is an advanced, larger diameter unit made from composite materials andThe GE90 series are physically the largest engines in aviation today, the GE B, has a fan diameter of 3. 25 meter (10ft 8 in). The engine has a larger diameter than most smaller airliners such as the Bombardier CRJ family or the Embraer ERJ. ge90-115b dimensions
Dec 18, 2007 On the GE on the 200LR and 300ER, it's 135 inches. This is NOT greater than the outer fuselage diameter of a 737, which is just over 12 feet, if memory serves.
Apr 22, 2016 The GE9X was designed to generate 100, 000 pounds of thrust. (One space shuttle main engine produces 375, 000 pounds. ) While that may seem like a lot, the world record belongs to the engines predecessor, the GE B, which generated 127, 500 pounds of thrust. Dec 01, 2002 The GE B incorporated new blades that are thicker, have a greater chord and provide an estimated extra 2, 000lb thrust. Fan diameter was increased from 3. 12m (123in) to 3. 25m (128in). The fan containment case, however, was increased by only 1. 33in. The engine's nacelle size was slightly increased by 17. 8cm (7in) to 4. 19m (165in).ge90-115b dimensions A later variant, the GE B fan blade, was introduced into New Yorks Museum of Modern Art in 2007 as a perfect example of cuttingedge engineering, design and beauty. World record thrust During certification testing in 2002, the GE B engine set a worldrecord 127, 900 lbs. of thrust.
