Preliminary Altitude Performance Data for the J65-B3 Turbojet Engine at Reynolds Number Indices from 0.2 to 0.8

Description: From Summary: "Altitude performance characteristics of the J65-B3 turbojet engine and its components were obtained at engine-inlet conditions corresponding to Reynolds number indices from 0.2 to 0.8 over a range of corrected engine speeds from 70 to 110 percent of rated speed. Engine operational limits up to an altitude of 75,000 feet together with ignition and windmilling characteristics were also obtained. The engine and component data are presented both in graphical and in tabulated form. The operational characteristics are presented in graphical form."

Component and over-all performance evaluation of an axial-flow turbojet engine over a range of engine-inlet Reynolds numbers

Description: Report presenting an investigation in an altitude test chamber to evaluate the performance of an axial-flow turbojet engine over a range of engine-inlet Reynolds numbers. Reducing the engine inlet Reynolds number resulted in a reduction of corrected air flow and compressor efficiency but did not affect the compressor pressure ratio at a given corrected engine speed.

Effect of inlet-air-flow-distortions on steady-state performance of J65-B-3 turbojet engine

Description: The effects of inlet-air-flow distortions on the performance of the J65-B-3 turbojet engine were determined over a range of altitudes from 15,000 to 50,000 feet at a flight Mach number of 0.8. Radial inlet-air-flow distortions apparently do not affect the radial distribution of pressure after the first few compressor stages, while the circumferential inlet-air-flow distortion carried completely through the engine. For the distortions investigated, at rated exhaust-gas temperature and fixed-area exhaust-nozzle operation, the primary effect of the radial inlet-air-flow distortions was to reduce the engine air flow, and the primary effect of the circumferential distortion was to impose a temperature profile on the turbine, both resulting in reduction of thrust.
