Technical Papers and Publications

At JM Precision we carry out a great deal of development work in the design of model jet engines and components. In addition to this we are always looking to work closely with groups and individuals who are involved in both practical and theorectical research which can be applied to this work.

This page provides links to the published results of this work and provides published research papers that those interested in model jet engines may find interesting.

JM Precision is in the process of developing some new model jet technologies and with the direct help and input from such development work are currently testing some innovative engine designs and components which will signficantly improve the performance and reliability of these engines. This level of development would be impossible without the work of these individuals.

Please feel free to comment on any of these papers in our forums or please contact us if you would like to add a paper or publication.
