Wow! Looks like this is going to be one fine jet engine. I can only imagine a series of my Swirl Cans (instead of that annular combustion chamber) surrounding the core...

I'm not all to knowledgeable in the finer parts of turbines, but is that tube on the empty section a pressure take off tube or a fuel tube for an after burner? The latter would be very fun if you pointed upwards and injected a lot of gasoline : oD
Experience speaks more then hypothesizing ever can. More-so in chemistry.

Ask Phillip Heward, or allow me a wild guess : a tube for mounting thermocouple measuring EGT.

Whatever it is, we need the designer to appear and give us the answer.

But it seems that phillip has trouble to get to this forum, which he told me earlier this month.

I might help:

The image Manolo is posting is not a Phonix engine, nor a Sophía Precision J450 engine. It´s a cutway of a French JPX T-240, that used propane to run. The Sophía engine was a clone of the JPX but with a modification on the CC to use kerosene. The Phoenix engine (made by Phill Heward) has nothing to do with the JPX. The design is different, they only share that both (or the three) use a complete turbo rotor (radial design).

The tube some people are talking about is not an afterburner or thermocoupler hole., It´s a tube where the liquid propane, reaches the hot tail pipe, converts to gas propane, and then enters the engine.

Hope that helps.
