UNIT IV AIRFOIL IN HIGH SPEED FLOWS

1) Define Critical Mach number.

It is free stream Mach number, when the sonic condition is first attained at any

point of the body.

2) Distinguish between Lower Critical Mach number and Upper Critical Mach number.

The free stream Mach number for which the entire flow around the body is

subsonic is called the lower critical Mach number.

The free stream Mach number for which the entire flow around the body is

supersonic is called the upper critical Mach number.

3) What is the effect of thickness over the performance of wings?

a. The critical Mach number decreases with the increasing thickness of the

body.

b. The co-efficient of pressure for the thick airfoil is greater than the thin

airfoil.

4) What is the effect of camber over the performance of wings?

The character of the thickness and the camber is proportional to each other.

a. The critical Mach number decreases with the increasing camber of the

body.

b. The co-efficient of pressure for the high camber airfoil is greater than the

less camber airfoil.

5) What is meant by transonic area rule?

Transonic area rule states that, the cross sectional area of the body should have

smooth variation with the longitudinal distance along the body.

6) What are the characteristics of swept back wing?

By sweeping the wing, we can reduce the thickness to chord ratio ie., it makes the airfoil

section thinner. Thus increasing the critical Mach number and thereby increasing the drag

divergence Mach number.

7) What is drag divergence Mach number?

The value of Mach number when there is a sudden increase in the coefficient of te

drag starts is the drag divergence mach number.

8) Why drag increases drastically over sonic speed?

The drag increases drastically over the sonic region because the extensive region

of the supersonic flow over the airfoil will be terminated by the strong shock

wave. These shock waves cause the severe flow separation downstream the shock

which results in large increase in drag.

UNIT V HIGH SPEED WIND TUNNELS

1) What is a wind tunnel and classify the wind tunnels?

Wind tunnel is the flow device used for the calibration of the flow properties over

the body.

It is a intermittent type in which the energy is stored in the form of pressure or vacuum or

both and is allowed to drive the wind tunnel only for few seconds out of each pumping

hour

3) What is meant by flow visualizations?

It is the process of visualizing the flow patterns behind the body.

4) What are the optical flow visualization methods?

b. Schlieren system

c. Shadow graph

6) A fighter aircraft attains its maximum speed of 2160 kmph at an altitude of 12 km. The

an isobaric process from A to some intermediate state C followed by an isovolumetric
