Effect of pressure level on afterburner-wall temperatures

Description: Report presenting an investigation conducted on a full-scale afterburner and turbojet engine to determine the effect of pressure level on afterburner-wall temperature. The purpose behind the investigation was to investigate the idea that luminous radiation from nongaseous substances in the afterburner gas stream might be present and vary significantly with pressure.

Effect of pressure level on afterburner-wall temperatures

Description: Report presenting an investigation conducted on a full-scale afterburner and turbojet engine to determine the effect of pressure level on afterburner-wall temperature. For a given ratio of cooling airflow to afterburner gas flow, the afterburner-wall temperature increased as afterburner-outlet pressure was increased. The results indicated that heat transfer by luminous radiation was not significant any pressure level investigated.

Experimental investigation of ejector-nozzle metal temperatures

Description: Metal temperatures were obtained on a full-scale ejector nozzle installed on an afterburner operating at exhaust-gas temperatures up to 3450 degrees R. A favorable afterburner-outlet temperature profile helped keep the primary-jet nozzle components cool. The ejector shroud temperatures were much more sensitive to secondary airflow than were temperatures on the primary-jet nozzle.

Exhaust Nozzles for Supersonic Flight with Turbojet Engines

Description: Good internal performance over a wide range of flight conditions can be obtained with either a plug nozzle or a variable ejector nozzle that can provide a divergent shroud at high pressure ratios. For both the ejector and the plug nozzle, external flow can sometimes cause serious drag losses and, for some plug-nozzle installations, external flow can cause serious internal performance losses. Plug-nozzle cooling and design of the secondary-air-flow systems for ejectors were also considered .

Altitude-test-chamber investigation of performance of a 28-inch ram-jet engine 3: combustion and operational performance of three flame holders with a center pilot burner

Description: Report presenting a direct-connect altitude test chamber investigation of the combustion performance of a 28-inch-diameter ramjet engine with a can-type center pilot burner. Combustion-chamber configurations with three different flame holders were investigated at a simulated flight Mach number of 2.0 and several different altitudes.

Effect of inlet temperature and humidity on thrust augmentation of turbojet engine by compressor-inlet injection

Description: Report presenting an investigation at conditions of zero ram and seal-level pressure to determine the effect of inlet temperature and humidity on turbojet engine performance with injection of water and water-alcohol mixtures at the compressor inlet.

Experimental sea-level static investigation of a short afterburner

Description: Report presenting a sea-level static investigation to determine the performance and some design principles for a short afterburner. The power section of a 12-stage axial-flow turbojet engine was used and the afterburner was designed to fit within the length required for the tail pipe used on the standard nonafterburning model.
