1146 CHAPTER 8. ONE-DIMENSIONAL COMPRESSIBLE FLOW 8.24 Chapter 8, Problem 24 Problem: Consider subsonic airflow past an airplane wing. The flow speed far ahead of the wing is U . The flow accelerates over the wing, reaching a maximum speed of 3 2 U . The freestream density and temperature are ρ = 0.00234 slug/ft 3 and T = 519 o R, respectively. Compute M and the percentage change in density at the point where the maximum velocity is achieved for the following. (a) U = 100 mph (b) U = 450 mph Solution: Since total temperature and total density are constant for isentropic flow, we have T t = T } 1 + γ 1 2 M 2 ] = T } 1 + γ 1 2 M 2 ] ρ t = ρ } 1 + γ 1 2 M 2 ] 1 / ( γ 1) = ρ } 1 + γ 1 2 M 2 ] 1 / ( γ 1) Now, since M 2 = U 2 /a 2 = U 2 / ( γ RT ) , there follows T + γ 1 2 U 2 γ R = T + γ 1 2 U 2 γ R = a 2 + γ 1 2 U 2 = a 2 + γ 1 2 U 2 But, we are given U = 3 2 U , so that a 2 = a 2 + γ 1 2 } U 2 9 4 U 2 ] = a 2 5 8 ( γ 1) U 2 = a 2 } 1 5 8 ( γ 1) M 2

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.
