### Analysis of Plane Disturbance

• A control volume for this analysis is shown, and the gas flows from left to right.

• The conditions to the right of the disturbance are uniform, but different from the left side and vice versa.

• The thickness of disturbance is very small.

• No chemical reactions.

• There is no friction or heat loss at the disturbance.

### Conservation of Mass Applied to 1 D Steady Flow

Conservation of Mass:

Conservation of Mass for 1DSF:

Integrate from inlet to exit :

### Gauss Divergence Theorem

If the velocity is normal to the area :

Conservation of mass:

The area of the disturbance is constant.

Conservation of momentum: The momentum is the quantity that remains constant because there are no external forces.

### Conservation of Momentum Applied to 1 D Steady Flow

Using gauss divergence theorem:

If the velocity is normal to the area :

Steady, Inviscid 1-D Flow, Body Forces negligible

The area of the disturbance is constant.

### Conservation of Energy Applied to 1 D Steady Flow

Steady flow with negligible Body Forces and no heat transfer is an adiabatic flow

For a blissful fluid the rate of work transfer is only due to pressure.

For a total change from inlet to exit :

Using gauss divergence theorem:

One dimensional flow normal to the area of cross section

Using conservation of mass

With negligible body forces:

The process is adiabatic, or nearly adiabatic, and therefore the energy equation can be written as:

For calorically perfect gas:

The equation of state for perfect gas reads

### Solution of Simultaneous Equations

• If the conditions upstream are known, then there are four unknown conditions downstream.

• A system of four unknowns and four equations is solvable.

• There exist multiple solutions because of the quadratic form of equations.

• Out of these multiple solutions, some are physically possible and some are not.

• These Physically possible solutions refer to the universal law of direction of happening.

• Different Physically possible solutions will lead to development of different products or processes.

• The only tool that brings us to the right direction of happening is the second law of thermodynamics.

• This law dictates the direction of happening : Across the disturbance the entropy can increase or remain constant.

• In mathematical terms, it can be written as follows:

For an ideal gas :

• We will not use isentropic conditions.

• Use more algebra to reduce the number of variables.

Nothing Happening :

If there is something happening between x & y

With a disturbance between x & y,

This equation relates the downstream Mach number to the upstream.

It can be used to derive pressure ratio, the temperature ratio, and density ratio across the disturbance.

### The Nature of Irreversible Phenomenon

My

g = constant=1.4

Mx

This Strong Irreversibility is called as Normal Shock.

### Nature of Normal Shock

• The flow across the shock is adiabatic and the stagnation temperature is constant across a shock.

• The effect of increase in entropy across a shock will result in change of supersonic to subsonic flow.

• The severity of a shock is proportional to upstream Mach Number.

• Normal Shock is A severe irreversible Diffuser.

• No capital investment.

• Can we promote it ?

### Jet Engine Inlet Duct

• All jet engines have an inlet to bring free stream air into the engine.

• The inlet sits upstream of the compressor and, while the inlet does no work on the flow.

• Inlet performance has a strong influence on engine net thrust.

• Inlets come in a variety of shapes and sizes with the specifics usually dictated by the speed of the aircraft.

• The inlet duct has two engine functions and one aircraft function .

• First : it must be able recover as much of the total pressure of the free air stream as possible and deliver this pressure to the front of the engine compressor .

• Second : the duct must deliver air to the compressor under all flight conditions with a little turbulence .

• Third : the aircraft is concerned , the duct must hold to a minimum of the drag.

• The duct also usually has a diffusion section just ahead of the compressor to change the ram air velocity into higher static pressure at the face of the engine .

• This is called ram recovery .

• SUBSONIC INLETS

• A simple, straight, short inlet works quite well.

• On a typical subsonic inlet, the surface of the inlet from outside to inside is a continuous smooth curve with some thickness from inside to outside.

• The most upstream portion of the inlet is called the highlight, or the inlet lip.

• A subsonic aircraft has an inlet with a relatively thick lip.
