Abstract—The article describes the results of investigation of the theoretical limits of the conventional gas turbine engines on the basis of numerical simulation using the computer-aided system “astra”. The results of simulation are used to forecast the gas turbine engines' parameters as well as to determine whether the potentialities of the conventional gas turbine engines are exhausted or not. The approaches to increasing the efficiency of propulsion unit and the thermogasdynamic cycle are suggested.
