I go to the University Wisconsin, Madison. We have a pretty extensive engine research department, in addition to a pretty cool bunch of engines on display. We previously had a cut-away full size Twin Wasp, and a Continental J69 turbojet. Well I came back from winter break today and about sh1t myself when I saw that Jumo 004B laying on a stand. That thing sure is a piece of work, compared to the Westinghouse J45 (I think it is a 45) that just came in the Jumo looks very modern. One of the access panels is pulled off so you can see the compressor stage, and there are a few cut-aways so you can see in the burners and the hot section. Really cool, even has the front and rear of the nacelles straight off a 262 (with the big yellow triangle for B82 fuel for the starter motor). If anyone wants some pics I can try to borrow a camera and post them up. Also about the J45, does anyone know what its out of? Seems to be fairly large, much larger than the Jumo, it also has an afterburner.

Now they drool over jet engines.

Well, if I walked in and saw a 004 sitting there I would probably sh1t myself too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I still remember the day I first laid eyes on a real Me262. Damn awesome machine.

Are you saying this is a real Jumo 004? I'd love to see some pics and if you have any info of the history of it as well...

the engineering dept. is nicely void of most of the hippies thank god. All us non-democrats must keep a low pro, lest we be labeled republicans.

Are there Master's or Doctorate Programs offered within? Is it within the Mechanical Engineering department, or is it its own entity?


I remember seeing the cut-away Twin Wasp while on a (poorly guided) campus visit there a few years back. Are these new engines housed in the same building?

new engines are in the same building as the twin wasp, Its in the mechanical engineering building.

If you want some information on the engine research center check out this link:
http://www.erc.wisc.edu/
Most of the research is in diesel engines, mainly in the injecters.

I dont know that much about it, but I know it has a masters and doctorate program. I believe it is and offshoot of the ME department though.

I will try to get a digital camera around this weekend and take some shots if I get the chance. That Jumo sure is a beauty.

Sorry, No. I spent too many years building, testing and maintaining the dam things!

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Some pictures would be great! What are the future plans for the Jumo? A display or something more interesting like a working model.

Heh, Madison is still, and always will be REALLY liberal. Thats where I'm from, so I'm afraid I'm also quite liberal.

They have a Me262 engine at Iowa State University (my Alma Mater) in the Aerospace Engineering building, along with a bunch of old radial engines from various pre WWII aircraft.

The aviation Museum in Ottawa Canada has a He162 with its engine. There is also a wall, 30' high and 60-70 long(guesstamit) with all kinds of engines stored against it in racks.

Me262 Vol.4 has a fold-out page that has scale drawings of the Jumo - iso seperate sections, section plan, a longitude section and a top and side view.

The EAA museium in Oshkosh has many engines as well.

Then you didn't do it right. Binge drinking is a prerequisite at the University of Wisconsin, Madison http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Had I known they had Jumo engines in college I would have changed my major and gone to UW Madison. Yeah, send some pictures this way Bucky Badger http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
