Altitude Acceleration Investigation of the RA-14 Avon Turbojet Engine

One of 5,164 reports in the series: NACA Research Memorandums available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

As a part of this investigation, the acceleration characteristics of the engine, using the standard engine fuel-control system, were obtained for conditions simulating flight at altitudes of 35,000 and 50,000 feet with a flight Mach number of 0.4. Rapid and wave-off type accelerations were made at each flight condition, and the transient performance of the engine was recorded with a multiple-channel oscillograph. The parameters are presented graphically in the form of time histories, augmented by short segments of the oscillograph recordings, in order to more completely describe the behavior of the engine parameters when surge was encountered.

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).
