Description

At the end & 1940 an investigation of a guide-vane lattice for the compressor of a TL unit [NACA comment: Turbojet] was requested. The greatest possible Mach number had to be attained. The investigation was conducted with an annular lattice subjected to axial flow. A direct-current shunt motor with a useful output of 235 horsepower at en engine speed of 1800 qm was available for driving the necessary blower. In designing the blower the speed was set at 10,000 rpm. A gear box fran an armored car was used as gearing in which supplementary fresh oil lubrication was installed. The ... continued below

Description

At the end & 1940 an investigation of a guide-vane lattice for the compressor of a TL unit [NACA comment: Turbojet] was requested. The greatest possible Mach number had to be attained. The investigation was conducted with an annular lattice subjected to axial flow. A direct-current shunt motor with a useful output of 235 horsepower at en engine speed of 1800 qm was available for driving the necessary blower. In designing the blower the speed was set at 10,000 rpm. A gear box fran an armored car was used as gearing in which supplementary fresh oil lubrication was installed. The gear box was used to step up from low to high speeds. The blower that was designed is two stage. The hub-tip ratios are 0.79 to 0.82; the design pressure coefficient for each stage is 0.6 and the design flow coefficient is 0.4. The rotor dosimeter D sub a is 0.39 meters and the resulting peripheral speed is u sub a = 204 meters per second [NACA comment: Value corrected from the German]. The blower was entirely satisfactory. The construction of the test stand is shown in figure 1. The air flows in through an annular Inlet, which is used in the measurement of the quantity of air, and is deflected into an inward-pointing radial slot. A spiral motion is imparted to the air by a guide-vane installation manually adjustable as desired, which enables injection of the air, after it has been deflected from the radial direction to the axial direction, into the lattice being investigated at any desired angle.

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
