Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ASX, likely short for Armstrong Siddeley eXperimental, was an early axial flow jet engine built by Armstrong Siddeley that first ran in April 1943. Very little information on the engine is available, and it appears it was never put into production. A conversion to turboprop as the ASP was somewhat more successful, and as the Armstrong Siddeley Python saw use in the Westland Wyvern. The ASX was unique in layout. The inlet to the 14-stage compressor was placed near the middle of the engine, the air flowing forward as it was compressed.show more
