Altitude performance of pentaborane - JP-4 fuel blends in a modified J47 combustor

Description: From Introduction: "Experimental investigations of the combustion characteristics of diborane, pentaborane, and pentaborane-hydrocarbon blends in modified turbojet combustors have been conducted at this laboratory at the request of the Bureau of Aeronautics, Department of the Navy, as part of Project Zip. Results of these single-combustor tests are presented in references 2 to 5."

Altitude-wind-tunnel investigation of several afterburner configurations having moderately high burner-inlet velocities

Description: From Introduction: "The screech investigation, reported in reference 1, included a large number of afterburner configurations. Several of these configurations are presented herein to show the effects of afterburner-inlet gas whirl pattern, flame-holder design, and fuel distribution on performance as determined by combustion efficiency, augmented thrust ratio, and special fuel consumption."

Analysis of a nuclear-powered liquid-metal ducted-fan cycle

Description: From Introduction: "The results are presented for flight Mach numbers of 0.9 to 1.5 at an altitude of 50,000 feet. The effect of flight altitude on optimum engine design-point airplane performance is also shown."

Analysis of experimental sea-level transient data and analog method of obtaining altitude response for turbine-propeller engine with relay-type speed control

Description: From Introduction: "This report shows correlation between actual transient data obtained from the engine and solutions to a simulated system set up on an analog computer. Data are presented for response of engine speed to changes in set speed when the power plant was being controlled by a relay-type electronic governor that acted to maintain set speed by varying propeller pitch. Correlation obtained for sea-level conditions between actual time data and analog solutions is discussed."

Analytical investigation of ram-jet-engine performance in flight Mach number range from 3 to 7

Description: An analytical investigation was made of the performance of isolated ram-jet engines in the flight Mach number range from 3 to 7 for two types of diffuser, a high-efficiency diffuser, and a normal-shock diffuser. The fuel was assumed to be a hydrocarbon similar to gasoline. The conclusions reached are: (1) a design altitude of about 100,000 feet is desirable for a high-efficiency high Mach number ram jet on the basis of engine construction and performance; and (2) although greater thrust could be obtained with other fuels, gasoline provides sufficient energy release for maximum engine efficiency in the flight Mach number range investigated. The maximum engine efficiency calculated was 0.47, which occurred at a Mach number of 5. At a Mach number of 7, the maximum propulsive-thrust coefficient was 0.57.

Analytical investigation of turbines with adjustable stator blades and effect of these turbines on jet-engine performance

Description: From Introduction: "A comparison is also made of the actual performance of two contemporary jet engines with estimated performance, assuming the engines were equipped with adjustable-angle stators and adjustable exhaust nozzles. Charts are presented that aid in estimating the performance of adjustable-stator turbines."

Arrangement of Bodies of Revolution in Supersonic Flow to Reduce Wave Drag

Description: The wave drag of a combination of slender bodies of revolution at zero angle of attack is studied with a view to determining the arrangements for which the total drag is a minimum.Linearized theory is used to calculate the pressure distribution in the field surrounding the bodies. The interference drag coefficient is computed for different arrangements. The special cases of two bodies and of a three-body combination with bilateral symmetry are considered. The bodies treated are of the form determined by Sears and Haack as having minimum wave drag for prescribed volume and length. They also have equal fineness ratios. Numerical calculations of the drag coefficient of interference are carried out and curves are drawn which show the relative positions at which minimum drag occurs. A three-body configuration is found for which the total wave drag is about 35 percent less than the sum of the individual wave drags of the three bodies.

Comparison of locked-rotor and windmilling drag characteristics of an axial-flow-compressor type turbojet engine

Description: The internal drag of an axial-flow turbojet engine with the rotor locked in place to prevent windmilling and with the engine windmilling was obtained over a range of simulated Mach numbers. The corrected internal drag of the engine with the locked rotor was 210 pounds or only 46 percent of the windmilling drag at a flight Mach number of 0.8.

Comparison of outside-surface heat-transfer coefficients for cascades of turbine blades

Description: A comparison of available results from heat-transfer investigations on cascades of turbine blades is presented using the Nusselt equation. The conventional correlation procedure is modified by defining the Reynolds number by the average of the velocities and the pressures around the blades. The correlation of the results from impulse blades was improved by using the Reynolds number defined by the average velocity and pressure. The final comparison indicated that several variables, which possibly influence heat transfer, should be investigated.

Comparison of performance and component frontal areas of hypothetical two-spool and one-spool turbojet engines

Description: For constant-mechanical-speed operation, the two-spool thrust values are as great as or greater than the one-spool thrust values over the entire flight range considered, while the specific fuel consumption for the two engines agrees within 1 percent. The maximum difference in thrust occurs at Mach 2.8 in the stratosphere, where the two-spool thrust advantage is about 9 percent for operation with the after burning.
