1332 CHAPTER 10. VORTICITY, VISCOSITY, LIFT AND DRAG 10.12 Chapter 10, Problem 12 Problem: Missiles carrying liquid fuel spin for directional stability. Detailed analysis shows that during spin up , the radial position, r , of the front as it moves from the missile’s inner surface to its centerline is given by r = Re t ν /h . R and h are fuel-compartment radius and height, respectively, ν is kinematic viscosity and is rotation rate. Determine the approximate spin-up time, i.e., the time to achieve nearly rigid-body rotation ( r/R 0 . 05 ), for the following. (a) A missile with R = 110 cm, h =200cm , ν =1 . 5 · 10 6 m 2 /sec and =10sec 1 . (b) An experiment with R = 3.5 in, h =3 . 5i n , ν =1 . 08 · 10 5 ft 2 /sec and =120rpm . (c) Due to turbulence, the spin-up time for Part (b) is only t true =2 .5sec .Assum ing the equation above is valid with an effective kinematic viscosity, ν e f ,rep lac

Unformatted text preview: approximate as occurring when r R = e t /h = 0 . 05 Taking the natural log of both sides of this equation, we find t h 3 = t 3 h (a) For a missile with the given values, the spin-up time is t = 3(2 m) (1 . 5 10 6 m 2 / sec) (10 sec 1 ) = 1549 sec . = 26 min (b) For an experiment with the given values, the spin-up time is t = 3(3 . 5 in)(1 / 12 ft / in) 5 p 1 . 08 10 5 ft 2 / sec Q (120 rpm) (2 / 60 sec 1 / rpm) = 75 sec (c) Solving for from the equation derived above, = 1 X 3 h t ~ 2 10.12. CHAPTER 10, PROBLEM 12 1333 Denoting the observed spin-up time by t true , there follows e f = w t t true W 2 Hence, for the observed time of t true = 2 . 5 sec, we have e f = w 75 sec 2 . 5 sec W 2 = 900...
