Description

An investigation of the XJ-41-V turbojet-engine compressor with a revised vaned collector was conducted to determine the performance of the compressor and to obtain fundamental information on the aerodynamic problems associated with large centrifugal compressors of this type. The original vaned collector was revised by increasing the flow area at the vaned collector entrance. A maximum adiabatic efficiency of 0.81 was obtained et a corrected weight flow of 36.5 pounds per second and a pressure ratio of 1.90. The peak pressure ratio was 3.93 and occurred at an impeller speed of 11,500 rpm at a corrected weight flow of 65.5 ... continued below

Description

An investigation of the XJ-41-V turbojet-engine compressor with a revised vaned collector was conducted to determine the performance of the compressor and to obtain fundamental information on the aerodynamic problems associated with large centrifugal compressors of this type. The original vaned collector was revised by increasing the flow area at the vaned collector entrance. A maximum adiabatic efficiency of 0.81 was obtained et a corrected weight flow of 36.5 pounds per second and a pressure ratio of 1.90. The peak pressure ratio was 3.93 and occurred at an impeller speed of 11,500 rpm at a corrected weight flow of 65.5 pounds per second. Revision of the vaned collector resulted in an increased airflow capacity over the speed range. The design air-flow capacity of 78 pounds per second was very nearly reached at the engine design speed of 11,500 rpm. The compressor air-flow choking point occurred in the vaned collector passage; however, at speeds above 8300 rpm, the air-flow capacity of the impeller was being approached as indicated by large pressure losses in the impeller at maximum air-flow conditions. An increase in compressor air-flow capacity at the higher speeds can possibly be obtained 5y removal of the flow restriction in the impeller, which would result in an increased air density at the vaned collector entrance.

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).
