Performance of Compressor XJ-41-V Turbojet Engine I - Preliminary Investigation at Equivalent Compressor Speed of 8000 RPM
Description: At the request of the Air Material Command, Arm Air Forces, an investigation was conducted at the NACA Cleveland laboratory to determine the performance characteristics of the XJ-41-V turbojet-engine compressor. The complete compressor was mounted on a collecting chamber having an annular air-flow passage simulating the burner annulus of the engine and was driven by an electric motor. The compressor was extensively instrumented to determine the overall performance of the compressor, the characteristic performance of each of the compressor components, the state of the air stream in the simulated burner annulus, and the operation of the compressor bearings. An initial investigation at an equivalent compressor speed of 8000 rpm was made to determine the performance of the compressor and the collecting chamber and to determine the similarity of the air stream at the entrance to the simulated burner annulus. The mechanical performance of the compressor over a range of actual compressors speeds from 3300 to 8000 rpm is reported.
