MAE 112 SECOND EXAM March 11, 2008 Do all three problems in eighty minutes. Open books and notes. Calculator allowed. I. Consider a turboprop engine that flies at a Mach number of 0.45 with ambient conditions at 298 K and one atmosphere of pressure. The air capture area is 0.25 square meter. The propeller is aft (downstream) of the engine. There are two turbine stages with different rotational speeds; the first one drives the compressor while the other drives the propeller. The turbine exit pressure is practically one atmosphere. Consider a combustor exit temperature of 1450 K and a mass mixture ratio μ = 30. Neglect air bleeding for cooling. The specific heat of combustion products equals 0.30 cal/gm o K. a) What is the pressure entering the compressor? Assume a polytropic diffuser efficiency equal to 0. 97. b) Assume a pressure ratio of 15 across the compressor. If the polytropic compressor efficiency is 0.96, what is the power requirement of the compressor?

    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.
