I have been tasked with providing some basic turbine theory to my colleagues All my engine experience was on military thrust engines and all of those except for the F404 are now relegated to museums.

I would like to introduce them to a free turbine Turboprop (PT6) or Turboshaft engine.

Does anybody have any links to some worthwhile sites?

Thanks!

Wikipedia has a basic introduction to the PT6.

It's not specific, but for general turbine/jet engine 'how it works' look no further than Rolls Royce education section on their website.
