Altitude-Wind-Tunnel Investigation of a 4000-Pound-Thrust Axial-Flow Turbojet Engine, 5, Analysis of Turbine Performance
Description: From Summary: "Performance characteristics of the turbine of a 4000-pound-thrust axial-flow turbojet engine was determined in investigations of the complete engine in the NACA Cleveland altitude wind tunnel. Characteristics are presented as functions of the total-pressure ratio across the turbine and of turbine speed and gas flow corrected to sea-level conditions. Three turbine nozzles of different areas were used to determine the area that gave optimum performance. Inasmuch as tail-pipe nozzles of different diameters were investigated in combination with the standard turbine nozzle, the effect of varying discharge conditions on turbine operation could be observed."
