16.120 Compressible Flow Final Oral Exam Spring 2003 5/20/03 Do both problems 1. Contrast small disturbance, linear, inviscid external supersonic flow with small disturbance, nonlinear, inviscid external hypersonic flow (no credit is given without clear explanations, perhaps bolstered by some equations). 2. Consider a row of guide vanes in a compressible internal flow as shown below. There is a pressure probe at a measurement location a distance L upstream of the blade row. At time t=t 0 , the setting of the blades is changed suddenly such that they assume the position denoted by the solid blades, perturbing the mass flow

Unformatted text preview: in a one-dimensional sense. a) What are the governing equations representing the flow field in this situation? b) Discuss the creation of flow field perturbations encountered in this situation and describe their attributes (an explanation is expected perhaps bolstered by some equations). c) At what time does the pressure probe respond to the flow disturbance associated with the change in angle setting of the blades if: (1) the flow is subsonic, and (2) the flow is supersonic? d) Sketch the propagation of the disturbances in an x-t diagram for both cases (1) and (2)....
