Theoretical analysis of various thrust-augmentation cycles for turbojet engines

Description: "The results of analytical studies of tail-pipe-burning, water-injection, and bleedoff methods of thrust augmentation are presented that provide an insight into the operating characteristics of these augmentation methods and summarizes the performance that may be obtained when applied to a typical turbojet engine. A brief description of the principles of operation of each augmentation method is given, together with curves that illustrate the effects of the principal design and operating variables of the augmentation system on the thrust and the liquid consumption of the engine. The necessity of designing tail-pipe burners with a low burner-inlet velocity, a low burner drag, and a high diffuser efficiency in order to obtain a high thrust augmentation and to minimize the loss in engine performance during nonburning operation is illustrated" (p. 593).

Theoretical analysis of various thrust-augmentation cycles for turbojet engines

Description: Report presenting the results of analytical studies of tail-pipe-burning, water-injection, and bleedoff methods of thrust augmentation that provide an insight into the operating characteristics and summarize the performance that may be obtained when applied to a typical turbojet engine. Results regarding bleedoff and water-injection rates, performance of the primary engine, and performance of the secondary engine, performance of the complete engine are provided.

Investigation of several clamshell variable-area exhaust nozzles for turbojet engines

Description: Report presenting the results of several investigations of the performance of different types of clamshell variable-area exhaust nozzle far turbojet engines to determine the efficiency of that type of exhaust nozzle as compared with conventional fixed-area conical exhaust nozzles. The investigations were conducted at zero-ram sea level conditions on three different full-scale turbojet engines and using five different nozzles.

Summary of NACA research on afterburners for turbojet engines

Description: From Summary: "NACA research on afterburners for turbojet engines during the past 5 years is summarized. Although most of this work has been directed toward the development of specific afterburners for various engines rather than toward the accumulation of systematic data, it has, nevertheless, provided a large fund of experimental data and experience in the field. The references cited present over 1000 afterburner configurations and some 3500 hours of operation. In the treatment of the material of this summary, the principal effort has been to convey to the reader the "know-how" acquired by research engineers in the course of the work rather than to formulate a set of design rules."

Correlation of cylinder-head temperatures and coolant heat rejections of a multicylinder, liquid-cooled engine of 1710-cubic-inch displacement

Description: "Data obtained from an extensive investigation of the cooling characteristics of four multicylinder, liquid-cooled engines have been analyzed and a correlation of both the cylinder-head temperatures and the coolant heat rejections with the primary engine and coolant variables was obtained. The method of correlation was previously developed by the NACA from an analysis of the cooling processes involved in a liquid-cooled-engine cylinder and is based on the theory of nonboiling, forced-convection heat transfer. The data correlated included engine power outputs from 275 to 1860 brake horsepower; coolant flows from 50 to 320 gallons per minute; coolants varying in composition from 100 percent water to 97 percent ethylene glycol and 3 percent water; and ranges of engine speed, manifold pressure, carburetor-air temperature, fuel-air ratio, exhaust-gas pressure, ignition timing, and coolant temperature" (p. 207).

Experimental investigation of thrust augmentation of a turbojet engine at zero ram by means of tail-pipe burning

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the performance of a turbojet engine equipped with a tail-pipe burner at zero ram over a range of rotor speeds and tail-pipe-burner fuel flows. A thrust augmentation of 40 percent was obtained at zero ram for a tail-pipe-burner fuel-air ratio of 0.043 or a total fuel-air ratio of 0.056. Results with an engine with standard tail pipe, engine with tail pipe burner and no afterburning, and engine with tail pipe burner and afterburning are provided.

Summary of NACA Research on Afterburners for Turbojet Engines

Description: Report presenting a summary of NACA research on afterburners for turbojet engines during the past 5 years. The references present over 1000 afterburner configurations and about 3500 hours of operation. The report covers the following topics: burner-inlet diffusers, fuel-injection systems, flameholders, combustion space, combustion instability, starting and transient performance, effects of diluents, and burner-shell cooling.
