- Flow through engine is conventionally called THRUST
- Composed of net change in momentum of inlet and exit air

- Fluid that passes around engine is conventionally called DRAG

- 1-2: Inlet, Compressor and/or Fan: Adiabatic compression with spinning blade rows
- 2-3: Combustor: Constant pressure heat addition
- 3-4: Turbine and Nozzle: Adiabatic expansion
- Take work out of flow to drive compressor
- Remaining work to accelerate fluid for jet propulsion

- Thermal efficiency of Brayton Cycle, hth=1-T1/T2
- Function of temperature or pressure ratio across inlet and compressor

- Thermal efficiency of Brayton Cycle, hth=1-T1/T3
- Function of temperature or pressure ratio across inlet and compressor

- Modern land-based gas turbine used for electrical power production and mechanical drives
- Length of 246 inches (6.2 m) and a weight of about 27,700 pounds (12,500 kg)
- Maximum shaft power of 55.2 MW (74,000 hp) at 3,600 rpm with steam injection
- This model shows a direct drive configuration where the LP turbine drives both the LP compressor and the output shaft. Other models can be made with a power turbine.

Bypass Air

Core Air

Bypass Ratio, B, a:

Ratio of bypass air flow rate to core flow rate

Example: Bypass ratio of 6:1 means that air volume flowing through fan and bypassing core engine is six times air volume flowing through core

- Overall Efficiency
- What you get / What you pay for
- Propulsive Power / Fuel Power
- Propulsive Power = TUo
- Fuel Power = (fuel mass flow rate) x (fuel energy per unit mass)

- Thermal Efficiency
- Rate of production of propulsive kinetic energy / fuel power
- This is cycle efficiency

- Propulsive Efficiency
- Propulsive Power / Rate of production of propulsive kinetic energy, or
- Power to airplane / Power in Jet

Conflict

- Demand high T/W
- Fly at high speed
- Engine has small inlet area (low drag, low radar cross-section)
- Engine has high specific thrust
- Ue/Uo ↑ and hprop ↓

GE CFM56 for Boeing 737 T~30,000 lbf, a ~ 5

- Demand higher efficiency
- Fly at lower speed (subsonic, M∞ ~ 0.85)
- Engine has large inlet area
- Engine has lower specific thrust
- Ue/Uo → 1 and hprop ↑

- TSFC ~ 17 g/kN s ~ 1.7x10-5 kg/Ns
- Fuel mass flow ~ 4.25 kg/s
- Isp ~ 6,000 seconds

- T ~ 2,100,000 N (vacuum)
- LH2 flow rate ~ 70 kg/s
- LOX flow rate ~ 425 kg/s
- Isp ~ 430 seconds

- Trends in thermal efficiency are driven by increasing compression ratios and corresponding increases in turbine inlet temperature
- Trends in propulsive efficiency are due to generally higher bypass ratio

- U.S. airlines, hammered by soaring oil prices, will spend a staggering $5 billion more on fuel in 2007 or even a greater sum, draining already thin cash reserves
- Airlines are among the industries hardest hit by high oil prices
- “Airline stocks fell at the open of trading Tuesday as a spike in crude-oil futures weighed on the sector”

- Thrust performance depends solely on total temperature rise across burner
- Relies completely on “ram” compression of air (slowing down high speed flow)
- Ramjet develops no static thrust

Cycle analysis employing general form of mass, momentum and energy

Energy (1st Law) balance across burner

Cycle analysis employing general form of mass, momentum and energy

Turbine power = compressor power

How do we tie in fuel flow, fuel energy?

Energy (1st Law) balance across burner

Two streams:

Core and Fan Flow

Turbine power = compressor + fan power

Exhaust streams have same velocity: U6=U8

Maximum power, tc selected

to maximize tf

Improvement over turbojet:

4 – 2.4 → 66% at Mach 1

8 – 3.3 → 142% at Mach 0
