Rolls-Royce/SNECMA Olympus 593 Mark 610 turbojets. With afterburner, each of four engines produces 38,050 pounds of thrust on takeoff. Take-off thrust is limited for only a few minutes and after-burner is very limited. For normal operation, the thrust is 10,000 lbs. Powerplant Specifications Engine Model Olympus 593 Mrk610 turbojet Engine Manufacturer Rolls-Royce/SNECMA Number fitted Four Maximum thrust produced at take off, per engine 38,050 lbs (170 KN) (with afterburner reheat in operation) Maximum thrust produced during supersonic cruse, per engine 10,000 lbs Reheat contribution to performance 20% at full thrust during take-off This link has some great info and figures on the Concorde engines and a comparison ofwith the turbo-fan engines(watch for pop-up windows). The Concorde jet engine is a standard turbotjet with after-burner, much like the fighter jets. Most airliners utilize the turbo-fan engines. This engine has a jet engine as the main core and one of its turbines powers a large multi-bladed fan that blows air over the outside of the engine. This is why it is called a high-bypass turbo-fan. This design uses fuel more efficiently to save costs for the passengers. As a comparison to the Concorde engine, General Electric has designed theCF6-80E1A3 for use on the Boeing 777 thatproduces a thrust of72,000 lbs at takeoff.

The Concorde began its regular service in 1936 or 1956 or 1976?

You listed this is the Chrysler Concorde category but I suspect you are referring to the Concorde Jet airplane. The jet was not even invented in 1936, and was a very new technology in 1953. The first Concorde prototype was produced in 1966. The first Concorde put into service began in 1976. The First Chrysler Concorde vehicle was sold as a 1993 model in 1992..
