Lecture F13 Mud: Stagnation, Shock Intro 1. What does “stagnation” mean? (1 student) A ﬂow element or streamline reaches stagnation at a point where its speed drops to zero, like on the tip of a blunt leading edge. The pressure, density, temperature at this point are called stagnation conditions . 2. In the PRS, why is the temperature in the tank equal to the outside tem- perature after mixing? (1 student) That’s what the adiabatic enthalpy equation requires. This seems like a cop-out, but I don’t know of a more intuitive way to explain it. 3. In the PRS, why did you decide the pressure is constant? (1 student) A jet exhausting into a still room must have the same static pressure as the room. If it had a different pressure, the streamlines would curve away or towards the jet centerline. But they don’t they are nearly straight an parallel. 4. What did the extra dashed lines in the V ( x ) and p ( x ) figures mean? (1 student) These are the V ( x ) curves at some past time. They are there to indicate the shock is moving. 5. Why do shock waves occur? (1 student) In most supersonic ﬂow situations, the only way a physically-possible ﬂow can exist (i.e. satisfy mass, momentum,

Unformatted text preview: momentum, energy conservation) is with shock waves present. The ﬂow cannot ﬂowing over the supersonic fast plane and remain smooth. Another way to look at it . . . A shock is the only feature in the ﬂowFeld which can travel faster than the speed of sound. So if the airplane is traveling faster than the speed of sound, there must be a shock wave ahead of the airplane “breaking the news” to the oncoming air. 6. Why does breaking the sound barrier cause a shock wave? (1 student) Shock waves travel along with any supersonic aircraft. The do not appear only when the “sound barrier” is broken. The term “sound barrier” is really a misnomer. It’s possible to go through it without all that much fuss. Just gotta know how. 7. No mud (4 students)...

### 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.
