This type of afterburner is developed by Volvo Aero and performs in a gradually manner ignition in 3 steps called zone 1, 2 and 3. The afterburners outlet area is also controlled as required.
An afterburner increases the thrust of a by- pass turbo jet engine up to 80 percent and fuel consumption up to two thirds.
Since only 25 percent of the air flow, which passes through a by- pass engine, is used for burning of the fuel in the Gas Generator, will the remaining 75 percent of the air flow be used for further burning of the fuel in the afterburner.
