Logic Bomb writes: "Mach 5 -- 5 times the speed of sound, or mph -- is a speed that so far has eluded jet-powered aircraft (the existing record for a production craft is about mach ).NASA, however, has high hopes for its latest attempt, the XA. Using a booster rocket, the prototype will be accelerated to mach 5, at which point its engine will be scooping enough oxygen to power the 2/5(). of a rocket-based combined cycle concept into one framework and used optimization to find the minimum dry weight. The technical disciplines were represented by differ-ent analysis tools but neither reliability nor cost was included. A surrogate for cost, the dry mass, was used as the objective function and the optimization techniques. Turbine Based Combined Cycle: A combined system, which relies on a turbojet or low bypass ratio turbofan at speeds up to about Mach 3, after which a ramjet takes over to provide thrust. One example is the Lockheed Martin SR currently under development. Fig. 15 shows the concept of the combined cycle system of the SR

For H 2 −air supersonic combustion, the low-temperature range of the combustor entrance conditions, which is most likely encountered as the flight speed decreases and in scramjets with short or no isolators, must involve flame stabilization methods other than lifted autoignition, as discussed in Section Cited by: On J at am the United States Space Shuttle Atlantis touched down ending the final mission of 30 years of Shuttle operations. Praised as the most complex flying machine yet made by man and as the most famous example of American technological prowess, the Shuttle has also been criticized by many as an expensive Cadillac that failed to perform as advertised and shackled the U.S. Apr 9, - Explore lotfimohamad's board "Engine" on Pinterest.

The present study provides a method for comparison of the performance of combined-cycle PDTE concept with conventional ramjet-based combined-cycle concept, i.e., the combined-cycle turbo-ramjet by: 8. Efficient high speed propulsion requires exploiting the cooling capability of the cryogenic fuel in the propulsion cycle.

This paper presents the numerical model of a combined cycle engine while in air turbo-rocket configuration. Specific models of the various heat exchanger modules and the turbomachinery elements were developed to represent the physical behavior at off-design by: The combined cycle engine is composed of a turbine engine that operates from take-off to Mach 3 and a ramjet engine for operation from over Mach up to Mach 5.

The design point is Mach 5 with six compressive shock waves (five oblique shock waves and a terminal normal shock wave), seen in Fig. Cited by: 1. Those systems were turbine-based combined cycle engine and rocket-based airbreathing combined cycle engine with ram/scram jet engine Since the fully reusable all-rocket SSTO (e.g.

With these objectives in minds, we had proposed the novel concept on the propulsion system, continuous. from low flight speed to the high flight speed regime based on the non-Brayton cycle. As compared to the Rocket-Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) propulsion system, ARCC’s unique features.

The focus is on the phenomena that dictate the thermo-aerodynamic processes encountered in the scramjet engine, including component analyses and flowpath considerations; fundamental theoretical topics related to internal flow with chemical reactions and non-equilibrium effects, high-temperature gas dynamics, and hypersonic effects are included.

Many options exist for low-speed accelerator engines, but lately the bulk of the activity has focused on high-speed turbine engines and rocket-based combined cycle (RBCC) engines (Hueter and Turner, ), the latter being essentially a scramjet with rocket motors in the flow path for generating static and low-speed thrust.

This one hides a rocket engine within the ramjet engine, in an effort to provide meaningful static thrust for takeoff. It actually can work, but the performance levels are abysmally low. It’s just not worth the losses.

Combined-cycle engine is a potential propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft. To ensure long-term, normal operation of combined-cycle engine under the harsh environment of high thermal load, it is of great significance to study the thermal protection and management of the propulsion system.

I expect that the revolutionary engine (probably a Rocket Based Combined Cycle Engine, RBCC, for those interested.) will be developed at NASA or some similar public or non business organization.

The worst thing for that organization to do would to license that engine technology to a single company will do more damage than good.1/5().
