An afterburner (or a repeat) is a component present on some jet engines, mostly those used on military supersonic aircraft.
Its purpose is to provide an increase in thrust, usually for supersonic flight, takeoff and for combat situations.
Afterburning is achieved by injecting additional fuel into the jet pipe downstream of (i.e. after) the turbine.
Afterburning significantly increases thrust at the cost of very high fuel consumption
It also decreased fuel efficiency, limiting its practical use to short bursts.
Pilots can activate and deactivate afterburners in-flight
Jet engines are referred to as operating wet when afterburning is being used and dry when not.
An engine producing maximum thrust wet is at maximum power, while an engine producing maximum thrust dry is at military power
A sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves created whenever an object traveling through the air travels faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate significant amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear.
The crack of a supersonic bullet passing overhead or the crack of a bullwhip are examples of a sonic boom in miniature.
Sonic booms due to large supersonic aircraft can be particularly loud and startling, tend to awaken people, and may cause minor damage to some structures.
They led to the prohibition of routine supersonic flight over land. Although they cannot be completely prevented, research suggests that with careful shaping of the vehicle the nuisance due to them may be reduced to the point that overland supersonic flight may be again possible.
