Optimization of a Convective Rectangular Profile Annular Fin
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~9
The rectangular profile annular fin with fixed volume is optimized using 2-dimensional analytic method. For a base boundary condition, convection from fluid within the pipe to the inside wall of the pipe and conduction from the inside wall of the pipe to the fin base are considered. Heat loss from the fin tip radius is not ignored. The maximum heat loss, the optimum fin tip radius and the optimum fin half thickness corresponding to the maximum heat loss are presented as a function of fin base radius, Biot number over the fin surface and Biot number within the pipe. Results show 1) the maximum heat loss increases as both Biot number over the fin surface and Biot number within the pipe increase and as fin base radius decreases 2) the optimum fin thickness increases as Biot number within the pipe decreases or as fin base radius and Biot number over the fin surface increase.
The Beat and Flow Analysis of the Liquid Helium for the Pressurization of Liquid Rocket Propellant Tank
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 10~17
The steady and transient thermal and flow analysis for liquid helium using for the pressurization of liquid rocket propellant tanks have been conducted numerically. The required inner diameter of helium channel that satisfy the design mass flow rate and velocity, through the steady state analyses for various thermal conditions at the wall, is determined and it is found that due to the sign of Joule-Thomson coefficient of helium, the temperature of helium increase monotonically for adiabatic wall condition. The temporal behavior of helium temperature, density, velocity are also investigated under the existence of local heat inflow on the wall.
Analysis of Liquid-Propellant Rocket Engine(KL-3) Unstable Combustion Characteristics of Vertical Installation
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 18~27
To perform combined tests with propellant feeding system and engine, which were developed for KSR-III launcher, vertical test stand was organized and a series of hot-fire combustion tests were carried out with engines of several injector faceplate types. In hot-fire tests in vertical installation, combustion instabilities occurred right after ignition with an engine without baffle, and such combustion instabilities did not occur at ignition add during mainstage operation for an engine with STS or composite baffle. 1.regular and temporary pressure pulsations(popping) were detected during steady operation with a baffle engine, however a development to combustion instabilities with resonant mode was highly suppressed by baffle. With a series of tests, it was confirmed that the last developed engine, which has composite baffle, was operated successfully in KSR-III flight propulsion system.
Effects of Orifice Internal Flow on Transverse Injection into Subsonic Crossflows
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 28~39
Effects of the orifice internal flow such as cavitation and hydraulic flip on transverse injection into subsonic crossflows have been studied. The liquid column breakup length and the liquid column trajectory were measured by changing the orifice diameter (d), the orifice length/orifice diameter (L/d), the injection pressure and the shapes (sharp and round) of orifice entrance, and were compared with previous results. It is found that cavitation bubbles, which occur inside the sharp-edged orifice, make the liquid jet very turbulent and especially in the orifices with L/d ＝ 5 hydraulic flip appear as cavitation bubbles are emitted from the orifice. The breakup length is shorter as cavitation bubbles grows and hydraulic flip appears. However, the liquid column trajectories normalized by the effective diameter and the effective momentum ratio have a similar tendency irrespective of cavitation and hydraulic flip.
LARGE EDDY SIMULATION OF THE COMPRESSIBLE FLOW OVER A OPEN CAVITY
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 40~48
Large eddy simulation is used to investigate the compressible flow over a open cavity, The sub-grid scale stresses are modeled using the dynamic model. The compressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved with the sixth order accurate compact finite difference scheme in the space and the 4th order Runge-Kutta scheme in the time. The results show a typical flow pattern of the shear layer mode of oscillation over the cavity. The votical disturbances, the roll-up of vorticity, and impingement and scattering of vorticity at the downstream cavity edge can be seen in the shear layer. Predicted acoustic resonant frequency is in good agreement with that of the empirical formula. The mean flow streamlines are nearly horizontal along the mouth of the cavity. The pressure has its minimum value in the vortex core inside the cavity.
A Study on Performance Analysis Technique of Turboprop Engine(PT6A-62) Using
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 49~56
A steady-state performance simulation program using
on the turboprop engine was developed through in this study. The PT6A-62 turboprop engine which is the power plant of the first Korean basic trainer KT-1, was selected for this study. In order to evaluate the proposed perfrmance model the analysis results of
model were compared with the simulated results by the GASTURB program, which is well blown commercially for the simulation performance analysis at various cases. The first case was the uninstalled condition with various altitudes from ground to 30000ft and flight Mach No. 0. The second case was the install condition with various altitude from ground to M at the maximum take off and the ECS (Environmental Control System) OFF conditions. The third case was install condition with the altitude range from 5000 ft to 1000ft and Mach No. 0.1 to 0.3 at maximum ECS operating condition. It was confirm that the results by the
model were well agreed with those by GASTURB within maximum 5.0%
An Analytical Study for Critical Mass Flowrate of Compressed Water
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 1, 2003, Pages 57~65
As a compressed water is rapidly expanded through a nozzle, two-phase flow of vapor and liquid is formed in the nozzle due to the flash evaporation. In the present study, critical flow of two-phase fluids is analysized using an Isentropic-Homogeneous-Equilibrium model and a Leung model. Calculation results show that the choke of the two-phase flow can be two different types of continuous and discontinuous chokings. For the stagnation pressure below 10 Mpa it is found that the continuous choking, which is similar to the choking phenomenon of single-phase gas flow, is possible only when the degree of subcooling is less than 10K.
