Altitude Investigation of Gas Temperature Distribution at Turbine of Three Similar Axial-Flow Turbojet Engines

Description: An investigation of the effect of inlet pressure, corrected engine speed, and turbine temperature level on turbine-inlet gas temperature distributions was conducted on a J40-WE-6, interim J40-WE-6, and prototype J40-WE-8 turbojet engine in the altitude wind tunnel at the NACA Lewis laboratory. The engines were investigated over a range of simulated pressure altitudes from 15,000 to 55,000 feet, flight Mach numbers from 0.12 to 0.64, and corrected engine speeds from 7198 to 8026 rpm.

Altitude-Wind-Tunnel Investigation of a 4000-Pound-Thrust Axial-Flow Turbojet Engine, Part 1, Performance and Windmilling Drag Characteristics

Description: From Summary: "The results of altitude-wind-tunnel tests conducted to determine the performance of an axial-flow-type 4000-pound-thrust turbojet engine for a range of pressure altitudes from 5000 to 40,000 feet and ram pressure ratios from 1.02 to 1.86 are presented and the experimental and analytical methods employed are discussed. By means of suitable generalizing factors applied to the measured performance data, curves were obtained from which the engine performance at any altitude for a given ram pressure ratio can be estimated. The data presented include the windmilling drag characteristics of the turbojet engine for the ranges of altitudes and ram pressure ratios covered by the performance data."

Altitude-Wind-Tunnel Investigation of a 4000-Pound-Thrust Axial-Flow Turbojet Engine. 2 - Operational Characteristics

Description: From Summary: "An investigation was conducted in the Cleveland altitude wind tunnel to determine the operational characteristics of an axial flow-type turbojet engine with a 4000-pound-thrust rating over a range of pressure altitudes from 5,000 to 50,000 feet, ram pressure ratios from 1.00 to 1.86, and temperatures from 60 deg to -50 deg F.

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.

Analytical investigation of the effect of water injection on supersonic turbojet-engine - inlet matching and thrust augmentation

Description: From Introduction: "In order to provide engine-inlet matching to prevent such mass flow spillage and the attendant drags, much mechanical complication has been introduced. References 1 and 2 propose employing this principle at subsonic and supersonic speeds to achieve thrust augmentation. The merits of the system for supersonic engine-inlet airflow matching, as well as thrust augmentation, appear considerable; and a comparative study with existing fixed- and variable-geometry inlets was therefore undertaken."

Analysis of several methods of pumping cooling air for turbojet engine afterburners

Description: From Introduction: "Afterburning is well established as an effective means of increasing the thrust of a turbojet engine. In order to obtain the maximum thrust from an afterburner, it is necessary to burn to the highest temperatures possible (reference 1). At these high temperatures, material limitations (reference 2) necessitate the installation of cooling systems to permit safe and reliable operation."

Component and over-all performance evaluation of a J47-GE-25 turbojet engine over a range of engine-inlet Reynolds number indices

Description: Report presenting an investigation in the altitude test chamber to evaluate the performance of an axial-flow turbojet engine over a range of engine-inlet Reynolds number indices. Secondary effects of exhaust-nozzle flow coefficient, air-flow leakage, and inlet temperature should be considered before analyzing the effect of variations in engine-inlet Reynolds number index.

Analysis of a form of peak holding control

Description: From Introduction: "The general objective of this report is a study of the characteristics of the described form of peak holding control. The control has not yet been used in experimental turbojet-engine study.This study is concerned with only one method of extracting the maximum amount of information from a peak output for the purpose of maintaining that peak. The criteria sought in this control process are: maintenance of peak average output, minimum duration of time in undesirable operation, quickness in response to command to reach peak condition, least amount of excursion in the undesirable region, and type of stability."
