You at least need to take care of the brakes right away. The grinding probably means that the disk brake pad(s) are worn. The irregular braking action is caused by a warped rotor. The brake job will include resurfacing or replacing the rotor and should eliminate the problem. As for the turbin-like noise, I'd have to hear it.

What is weight and thrust?

In aviation terms, weight is the gravity pulling you down, which prevents us from floating around in the air. Also, thrust is the power the turbine, or the propeller, generates that pushes the airplane forward.

What is axial shift of a steam turbine?

axial shift of a steam turbine is the shifting of turbine rotor in the forward and backward direction due to steam thrust on blades of rotor.

What fuel is used in windmills?

Windmills harness wind power, and were originally used for grinding grain. Today, the wind energy is converted into electricity by turbine generators.

How does a turbine in a jet engine work?

The engine sucks air in at the front with a fan. A compressor raises the pressure of the air. The blades compress the air. The compressed air is sprayed with fuel and a spark lights the mixture. The burning gases expand and blast out through the nozzle at the back of the engine. As the jets of gas shoot backward, the engine and the aircraft are thrust forward.

What is the difference between steam turbine and water turbine?

The steam turbine is that turbine which can opreat with steam and the water turbine is that turbine which can opearat with water but the main difference between each other that is the difference of construction and matiel of turbine

How a wind turbine used?

The wind turbines is a machine that converts the kinetic energy in wind into mechanical energy. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as a pump or grinding stones, The machine is usually called a windmill. If the energy is then converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator, wind turbine, or wind energy converter.

What are the advantages of free turbine engine over gas turbine engine?

A free turbine engine is a type of gas turbine engine, where the power turbine and the gas producer turbine are not connected by a solid shaft

Why are jet plane engines open?

Air goes in the front end, is compressed by the turbine, then kerosene fuel is sprayed in and ignites, and the expanding gases blow out the back end creating thrust and pushing the plane forward. The escaping gas also turns the turbine on the back end that is connected to the turbine on the front end compressing the air coming in the front end.

What are the two basic types of steam turbine?

impulsive turbine reaction turbine

What is a spinning turbine?

When force is applied on a turbine it turns. it means the turbine is spinning.

What is the differences between gas turbine and a steam turbine?

Gas turbine works on bryton cycle where as steam turbine works Rankine cycle. Construction, operation of a gas turbine are entirely different to steam turbine. Gas turbine has a compressor to compress the combustion air, a combustion chamber to burn the fuel and a turbine section to extract the work for burning fuel. Steam turbine is just has a turbine section to extract the work from steam.

What is the Scottish Gaelic word for 'turbine'?

'Turbine' is spelled 'tuirbin' in Scots Gaelic.

Would a turbine be a chemical or physical change?

Turbine is not a change, a turbine is a mechanical device.

What is difference between radial flow turbine and axial flow turbine?

in a radial flow turbine the steam enters the turbine in the direction of its radius and leaves it in the direction of the axis of the shaft. in a axial flow turbine the steam enters the turbine in the direction of the axis of the shaft and leaves the turbine in the same direction.

How does steam turbine works?

Oversimplifying it, steam is blown against the turbine blades, making the turbine rotate.

Why would you not heat the steam coming out of turbine and feedback to turbine?

How does a turbine work to produce energy for electricity?

The turbine converts pressure & heat energy (in steam turbine & gas turbine), velocity energy (in hydro turbine) into mechanical energy which produces rotation of the turbine. This mechanical force is used to rotate the rotor(which is coupled with the same shaft as that of turbine) of the generator which converts this mechanical energy into electrical energy.
