Thrust-specific fuel consumption: Difference between revisions

(→‎top: preferably don't mix unit names and symbols)
'''Thrust-specific fuel consumption''' ('''TSFC''') 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.
