Influence of Fuels and Lubricants on Turbine Engine Design and Performance, Volume II. Fuel and Lubricant Analyses
Final technical rept. 30 Mar 1971-30 Mar 1973,
PRATT AND WHITNEY WEST PALM BEACH FL
Pagination or Media Count:
An analytical study was conducted to determine the requirements for future fuels and lubricants research based on design studies of a high Mach number afterburning turbojet and a higher Mach number advanced multicycle turboramjet. Fuel and lubrication systems were defined, and computer models were developed for their thermal analyses. Fuel and lubricant stream temperature profiles were computed, and the effects of design modifications on these temperatures were evaluated. Fuel and lubricant temperatures were calculated for baseline missions, for steady-state flight envelope points, for alternate aircraftengine interface fuel temperatures, and for transient maneuvers.
