1 Due: February 6, 2009 MAE 112 Homework Assignment #4 1. Do Problem 18, Pages 214-5, Hill & Peterson. Note that specific thrust is defined as thrust per unit mass flow of air. It is used to normalize and to be able to compare engines of different sizes against each other. 2. Do a preliminary design on a ramjet engine which produces 10,000 1bf of thrust. Size constraints limit the intake cross-sectional capture area to 1.25 square feet. The engine is intended to cruise at a Mach number of 2.5. Assume ambient air conditions are one atmosphere of pressure and 500 R. Indicate clearly your choices of inlet type, fuel, temperature at entrance to nozzle, and extent of expansion in nozzle. All choices must be rational and defensible, of course. Indicate mass flows of air and fuel, mixture ratio(s), thrust specific fuel consumption, exhaust velocity, stagnation pressure ratios across each component, throat area, nozzle exit area, and nozzle exit pressure.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
