QUESTION: 12

Consider the following statements: 

In open cycle turbo-jet engines used in military aircraft, reheating theexhaust gas from the turbine by burning more fuel is used to increase.

1. Thrust
2. The efficiency of engine
3. The range of aircraft.

correct statements are

Solution:

Ans. (b)

QUESTION: 13

Assertion (A): Compared to a turbo-jet engine, a turbo-prop engine has a higher power for take-off and higher propulsive efficiency at low speeds. 
Reason (R): By mounting the propeller on the turbine shaft, the propeller can be runat a very high speed to obtain higher efficiency.

Solution:

Ans. (c)

QUESTION: 14

Assertion (A): In the subsonic range the propulsive efficiency of a rocket is less thanthat of a turbojet.  
Reason (R): The jet velocity of rocket is independent of forward motion.

Solution:

Ans. (b) Both A and R are true but R is not correct explanation of A.

For a jet propulsion unit, ideally the ratio of compressor work and turbinework is 

Solution:

Ans. (b)

QUESTION: 16

Assertion (A): After burning increases the thrust of a jet engine.

Reason (R): The air fuel ratio of jet engine is high. 

Solution:

Ans. (b)

QUESTION: 17

Consider the following statements regarding performance of turbojet engines:
1. The thrust decreases at higher altitude due to reduced density of air and consequently lower mass flow of air.
2 At subsonic speeds, the effect of increased velocity is to increase the air flow and the thrust increases.
3. The relative velocity of jet with respect to the medium decreases at higher speeds which tends to reduce the thrust.
4 For turbojet engine the thrust of jet at subsonic speeds remains relatively constants.
Which of the statements given above are correct?

Solution:

Ans. (d) The turbojet is almost a constant thrust engine.
