GSP main window This is the main application window. This window is the start for creating new, or opening existing models, global option settings, and houses the libraries with model components.
GSP project; Low bypass afterburning turbofan This screenshot shows a low bypass turbofan with reheat (afterburner) GSP project. Left the project structure (model configurations and model run cases), right the actual model configuration and the output results on the bottom. This is just one view, multiple tab sheets are present to display even more information (e.g. graphs, secondary airflows, changes with respect to parent, model reports, etc.).
Turbojet model This screenshot shows a the un-docked window of the model area of a simple straight turbojet engine model. All windows in a project file are dockable, this implies that the user can create their own view of their model (note these views can be saved as templates). Standard docking templates are provided by the GSP developers.
Dual turbojet model This screenshot shows a the un-docked window of the model area of 2 simple straight turbojet engine models. The GSP model window is capable of containing more than 1 engine model. This may be interesting for load sharing analysis or mishap investigation.
Dual pressure vessel model for turbine analysis This screenshot shows a the un-docked window of the model area of 2 pressure vessels that provide airflow to connected turbine component models. These types of analyses allow analysis of part of the gas turbine cycle.
Parallel twin compressor and turbine concept for bulk transportation using bleed air This screenshot shows an unconventional gasturbine cycle. This cycle is a parallel twin compressor and turbine concept for bulk transportation using bleed air. One of the compressors is used for the pressurizing the air for the combustor which feeds both turbines. The other compressor is used to create bleed air for the transportation of bulk goods transported by truck trailers (e.g. sugar, grain, etc.).
GSP turboshaft model This screenshot shows a model of a turboshaft engine that is typically used by helicopters (usually a twin engine arrangement). A turboshaft engine is also used by the electricity producing companies to generate electricity and/or heat. In the latter case, usually waste heat recovery is implemented to save fuel cost. A turboprop engine is also a turboshaft variant, in this case the generated power is used to propel a propeller (propeller component model is available in the “Auxiliary library”).
