Artist Concept of a Three Unit System

The entire Thrust Architecture concept will be housed in a concrete structure with concrete walls that are 40 inches thick. The walls will also contain various pockets specifically designed for entry by technicians to change out the acoustic insulation material that would be contained in these pockets in case moisture reduced the effectiveness of the insulation. The interior of these 40 inch walls might be compared to a “checker board” in a density that will not compromise the structural integrity of the wall while at the same time maximize the sound damping acoustic properties of the THRUST. I would anticipate that the building’s exterior might appear to a certain extent inconspicuous in appearance that would fit in with the surrounding structures and thereby not draw a significant amount of attention. The reason that I point this out is that terrorist groups would be less likely to identify THRUST when compared with some type futuristic looking structure.

Since the water jacket will encompass the entire Thrust Structure sound damping suggest an added benefit of the water jacket.

Also not shown is a compressor apparatus with separate extensions to the intake of each engine. To visualize this, one might extend his or her right hand and note that each of the four fingers would be connected to the intake of each individual engine. As one would twist his or her arm in a clockwise direction consider that a swivel would be attached at the elbow. This apparatus serves basically two functions; to feed to each engine a controlled amount of air intake while at the same time preventing the ingestion of birds and other materials by the intake of the engines.

It may be recalled that the old DC-9 turbo jet-engines required an external compressor linked to an engine to rotate the engine at a speed wherein the engines would start using some type of external DC power generator. The concept might be applied in the Thrust Architecture concept however the external compressor hoses would remain attached to the engine and never removed. By controlling the fuel flow and air in take, the combustion rate of the engines could be controlled.

Also not shown are water baffle plates within the water jacket that could be moved in either direction to control the distribution of water in the water jacket for maximum heat transference.

The cooling fins would have no purpose since each unit will be housed within a building of the previous characteristics. Other additions are deletions to this design might be forth coming as a complete engineering analysis moves forward.
