Thrust-specific fuel consumption: Difference between revisions

Corrected mistake in terminology. SFC and TSFC are not equivalent.
(Corrected mistake in terminology. SFC and TSFC are not equivalent.)
'''Thrust specific fuel consumption''' ('''TSFC''') or sometimes simply specific fuel consumption, SFC, is an [[engineering]] term that is used to describe the [[fuel efficiency]] of an [[engine]] design with respect to [[thrust]] output.
TSFC may also be thought of as fuel consumption (grams/second) per unit of thrust (kilonewtons, or kN). It is thus thrust-specific, meaning that the fuel consumption is divided by the thrust.
