Power plant support structurePiston engines:What is the function of cowl flaps engine?Its normally left wide open for ground operations but closed in flight to keep the engine temperatures within the proper operating range and controlled the amount of airflow through a high powered engine*Cowling on radial engines are specifically designed to increase airflow around the cylinders and to reduce drag
Power plant support structureTurbine engines*Smaller and lighter than piston engine of the same power while also producing less vibration*Engines on modern turbine –engine aircraft are attached to the aircraft main structure through pylons under the wings or on the rear section of the fuselage
Engine MountsEngine mounts are required to absorb1.Thrust provided by propeller or turbojet, to the airframe2.Vibration produced by engine or engine-propeller combinationAccess And InspectionOpening in structure are necessary for entrance vand egress, servicing, inspection, and repair
