Measurements of Ablations on Nozzle Throats of KL-3 Engines Using Image Analysis
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 1~7
In this research, it is intended to measure shape of the nozzle throat of the KL-3 engine, which is the main engine of the KSR-III rocket. For the purpose, an image-based method was invented to replace the 3D pointer, which is actually inaccessible to such large scale engines. As a result, our equipment showed satisfactory Performances. Analysing the results of experiments, we find that the pattern of ablation is determined by the spray pattern and that the process of thermal ablation phenomena can be categorized in three regimes - the first regime that the shape of nozzle throat is maintained and ablation is negligible, the second regime that saw-tooth form is developed and ablation is accelerated, and the third regime that the saw-tooth form is already established and the growth of ablation rate is reduced Also, we find that the ratio of area increase after 60 seconds combustion is +5.82% and conclude that the ratio is acceptable and satisfactory.
Cooling Performance Analysis of a Sub-scale Calorimeter
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 8~14
A cooling performance analysis has been made in the 8-channel calorimeter based on sub-scale KSR-III engine. Three-dimensional heat transfer analysis in cooling channels has been performed using the heat flux distribution through the chamber wall predicted from axi-symmetric compressible flow inside the combustion chamber. The heat flux distribution is verified against the published literature. Presented for the development and operation of the calorimeter are the coolant pressure drop, coolant temperature rise and the maximum chamber wall temperature. Required coolant flow rate is determined for given chamber pressure. Cooling performance is also predicted for temperature dependant coolant properties.
An Experimental Study on the Propagation Characteristics of the Impulse Noise from the Exit of a Perforated Pipe
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 15~21
This experimental study describes the propagation characteristics of the impulse noise emitted from the exit of a perforated pipe attached to the open end of a simple shock tube facility. The pressure amplitudes and directivities of the impulse wave propagating outside from the exit of pipe with several different configurations are measured and analyzed for the range of the incident weak shock wave Mach number between 1.02 and 1.2. In the experiments. the impulse waves are visualized by a Schlieren optical system for the purpose of understanding their propagation characteristics. The results obtained show that for the near sound field the impulse noise strongly propagates toward the pipe axis, but for the far sound field the impulse noise uniformly propagates toward the omnidirections, indicating that the directivity pattern is almost same regardless of the pipe type. For this non-directivity in the far sound field, it is shown that the perforated pipe has little performance to suppress the impulse noise.
PTA-I test of KSR-III Propulsion Feeding System
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 22~29
The propulsion feeding system of KSR-III is composed of tubes, valves and PSC, and controls the flow of propellant entering to engine. The test of PTA-I is carried out to verify the characteristic of propulsion feeding system and component. The tests of operation characteristic of component, hydraulic characteristic of tubes, flow control using venturi, oscillation of dynamic pressure, characteristic of regulator are carried out. Troubles of component are found out, and renewed, and the performance of the propulsion feeding system is verified through PTA-I. The results of PTA-I are used to the configuration of propulsion feeding system and test of PTA-II.
A Study on Spray Angle of Dual Swirl Injector with Different Recess Length
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 30~37
Spray angle of dual swirl injector is established according to the velocity ratio at orifice exit. Due to the internal mixing at recess and lack of correlation for the combined two fluid injection, prediction of spray angle is very difficult. This study deal with experimental work and numerical simulation on spray angle with different recess length. Among the multiphase flow models, the VOF model was selected to simulate the spray angle. Feasibility of numerical analysis are confirmed by comparing the results with the experimental data, and the effect of recess on spray angle are analyzed for single and combined spray case.
A Study on Steady-State Performance Simulation of Smart UAV Propulsion System
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 38~44
In this study, a performance model of the smart UAV propulsion system with ducts, tip jets and variable main nozzle, which has flight capability of the rotary wing mode for the take-off/landing and low speed forward flight as well as the fixed wing mode for high speed forward flight, has been newly developed With the proposed model, steady-state performance analysis was performed at various flight modes such as rotary wing mode, fixed wing mode, compound ing mode and altitude as well as at flight speed conditions. In investigation of performance analysis. it was noted that the operational capability of the propulsion system was limited due to the duct losses depending on each flight mode, and the limitation with the altitude variation case had much greater than that with the flight speed variation case.
Study of Flowfield of the Interaction of Secondary Sonic Jet into a Supersonic Nozzle
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 45~52
Detailed flowfield resulting from the secondary sonic gas injection into a divergent section of supersonic conical nozzle has been numerically investigated. The three-dimensional flowfield associated with the bow-shock/boundary-layer interaction inside the nozzle has been solved by Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations with an algebraic and
turbulence model. The numerical results have been compared with the experimental results for the identical flow conditions, and it is shown that the comparison is satisfactory Effects of different injection pressures of the secondary jet on the shock/boundary-layer interactions and the overall flow structure inside the nozzle have been investigated. The vortex structures behind the shock interaction and wall pressure variations have also been studied.
A Study on the Static Performance Test of a Reciprocating Engine for Small Aircraft
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 3, 2003, Pages 53~60
A test stand was developed to measure static performance of a reciprocating engine on the ground, related to the small aircraft being developed by KARI. The test stand consists of an apparatus to install and operate a pusher-type propulsion system and a data acquisition system to process many performance parameters including engine torque and propeller thrust as well as monitoring of the engine operations. First, the performance data from the basic operation tests were compared with the original engine data so the capacity of the test stand was verified. Engine performance tests were carried out with various test conditions through three stages, and it was measured and analyzed that the manifold pressure, the torque, and the back pressure of the engine, and the static thrust of the propeller.
