Pressure recovery measurements across a two-dimensional hypersonic inlet with variable geometry by W Tabakoff( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes the experimental measurement of pressure recovery across a simulated combustion chamber duct of a two-dimensional hypersonic inlet with variable geometry. The model tested was a wedge type inlet which generated a single external shock wave. The program was conducted in the twenty-inch hypersonic wind tunnel. Testing was at a nominal free stream Mach number of 14 and free stream Reynolds number of 721,000 per foot. (Author)
A study of non-isoenergetic turbulent jet mixing between compressible subsonic streams in axi-symmetric constant area duct by K. K Khanna( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem of turbulent mixing between two compressible streams in a constant area duct is analyzed. The velocity and temperature profiles were worked in the main region of the mixing chamber for axi-symmetric case. Turbulent free jet experimental data is used, to obtain expressions for velocity and temperature as a function of the distance from the inlet to the mixing chamber. It is found that energy diffuses more rapidly than momentum for ducted mixing. The results of the theoretical analysis indicate increasing tendency towards segregation of the streams for decreasing initial velocity difference between the mixing streams. On the basis of the mixing chamber length required to achieve adequate degree of mixing, it is concluded that a corrugated rim primary nozzle is needed to accelerate the mixing rate by increasing the contact surface between the streams.

An analytical study of flow losses through a two-dimensional turbine cascade with boundary layer injection [by] W. Tabakoff and R. Earley by W Tabakoff( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A method for determining the performance of a two-dimensional turbine cascade with boundary layer injection is developed using existing incompressible boundary layer approximate solutions with a new formulation for the injection. The overall cascade loss includes friction and wake mixing losses. The results of the analysis are compared with experimentally obtained data as a check of the validity of the new analytical method.

Measurement of the heat transfer to a two-dimensional hypersonic inlet with variable geometry by W Tabakoff( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes the experimental measurement of aerodynamic heat transfer to a two-dimensional variable geometry hypersonic inlet model. The program was conducted in a twenty-inch hypersonic tunnel. Testing was at a nominal free stream Mach number of 14 and free stream Reynolds numbers of 721,000 and 631,000 per foot. The experimental results are compared to an approximate theoretical solution for laminar boundary layer flow over a flat plate. (Author)
An Analytical Solution of Wall Temperature Distribution for Transpiration and Local Mass Injection Over a Flat Plate by Roointon E Pavri( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analytical solution is given of the non-similar laminar boundary layer with continuous or local injection and variable wall temperature. The solution is for a flat plate with zero pressure gradient, but it can be modified for variable pressure. The method consists of transforming the partial differential equations for momentum and enthalpy and then solving the transformed equations by assuming polynomial velocity and temperature profiles. The first part presents the solution for continuous injection (transpiration cooling), and the second part involves discontinuous boundary conditions due to local injection. (Author)
A study of compressor erosion in helicopter engine with inlet separator by W Tabakoff( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performance of aircraft engines, operating in areas where the atmosphere is polluted by small solid particles, can suffer due to blade surface erosion. Erosion damage can lead to significant reduction in engine efficiency as well as performance, due to the change in blade surfaces, tip leakages and blade pressure distribution. This report presents the results of an investigation of the solid particle dynamics and the resulting blade erosion through a helicopter engine with inlet particle separator. Particle trajectories are computed in the inlet separator which is characterized by considerable hub and tip contouring and radial variation in the swirling vane shape. The nonseparated particle trajectories are determined through the deswirling vanes and the five stage axial and one stage radial compressors. Impact data for a very large number of ingested particles is used to calculate the resulting blade surface erosion. The erosion pattern indicates the location of maximum blade erosion. In addition, the distribution of particle impact data (which is pertinent to erosion such as the impact velocities, impact angles and in particular, the frequency of particle impacts) is presented to suggest possible procedure to reduce the erosion in the critically affected blade areas. Keywords: Compressor aerodynamics, Compressor blades, Ingestion(Engines), and Particulate flow trajectory calculations

The solution of the equations of motion for unsteady viscous particualate flows by A Hamed( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A numerical method is developed to solve the equations that govern the motion of the two dimensional flow of a suspension consisting of incompressible visious gas and suspended solid particles. The numerical method is implicit, second order and iterative. The frozen and equilibrium wall friction coefficient are compared with the corresponding analytically determined values for a simple example, and are found to be in agreement. It is concluded that the present numerical method for investigating the nonequilibrium flow regime, gives accurate results not only for nonequilibrium flow conditions, but also predicts frozen and equilibrium flow conditions very accurately.

An experimental investigation of the erosive characteristics of 2024 aluminum alloy by G Grant( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The erosive characteristics of 2024 aluminum alloy have been experimentally examined. The parameters investigated included the particle approach angle, particle velocity, particle size, specimen length, particle material, particle concentration, and quantity of abrasive impacting the specimen. From this data an analytical model has been developed which will predict the erosion of this material
An analytical solution of the compressible laminar momentum and thermal boundary layers with pressure gradient and continuous mass injection by Roointon E Pavri( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study describes an analytical solution of the nonsimilar laminar boundary layer with pressure gradient, variable wall temperature and continuous injection. The method consists of transforming the partial differential equations for momentum and enthalpy and then solving the transformed equations by assuming polynomial stream function and enthalpy profiles. Solutions obtained show very good agreement with exact numerical results. The solutions are obtained for flows over wedges as well as at the two-dimensional stagnation point and over curved surfaces of a two-dimensional body in crossflow. The results of the study show that the boundary layer is very strongly effected by the injection mass flow rate
A quasi-analytical method for the calculation of particle trajectories by G. K Grant( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The equation of motion of a sand particle under the influence of aerodynamic drag has been developed in the inertial coordinate system. The method of solution presented is very easy to use in that only one first order differential equation has to be solved. The equation of motion has been integrated and solved for the special cases of one-dimensional steady flow and one-dimensional accelerating flow as well as the general case of two or three-dimensional accelerating flow. The computerized models of these three problems are presented along with solutions of example problems. High speed movies were taken of sand particles which had been accelerated in a specially designed tunnel. These results demonstrated the extreme accuracy of this method of solution. (Author)

Calculation of the Three Dimensional Particle Trajectories in a Turbine Stage( )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The equations of motion, in three dimensions, of solid particles entrained by a gas flow through the stationary and rotating cascades of a turbine are derived. The gas velocity components and density at all the mesh points of a square grid constructed in the flow channels are computed assuming a compressible flow. Formulas to determine the proper drag on the particles for a wide range of Reynolds numbers are given. A gas particle flow tunnel is used to investigate experimentally the phenomenon of particle impact with the turbine blades or casing and their rebound from these walls. Formulas for the restitution ratio due to collision and the rebound to incidence angle ratio are derived. This information is used in the equations of motion of the solid particles
