An aircraft is powered by a turbojet and it is flying at an altitude
of 20km. The engine has following;
The mass flow rate =120kg/s
Diffuser efficiency = 90%
Compressor efficiency up to first bleed point =90%
Compressor pressure ratio up to first bleed point =5
5% of the inlet air is bled from first bleed point of compressor for
turbine cooling.
The overall pressure ratio of compressor =12
The overall efficiency of compressor =85%
Combustion pressure loss = 5% of compressor pressure
Heating value 45000
Burner efficiency =99%
Turbine inlet temperature =2200R
Turbine efficiency=90%
Nozzle efficiency =95%
Calculate (i) Total Thrust (ii) Tsfc (iii) Propulsive efficiency (iv)
Thermal efficiency
The Bleed air is no loss, in fact it is rerouted to the exhaust

IGVs are used for giving a swirl in the direction of
rotation to the inlet air of first stage of axial flow compressor.
At BMH the absolute velocity is 200m/s and its tangential
component is 100m/s. blade linear velocity is 350m/s . The
