The shaft shown in Figure P11-4 was designed in Problem 10-19. For the data in row (a) of Table P11-1, and the corresponding diameter of shaft found in Problem 10-19,….
Design a 1-m-long cylindrical wind tunnel whose diameter is 25 cm operating at a Mach number of 1.8.
Design a 1-m-long cylindrical wind tunnel whose diameter is 25 cm operating at a Mach number of 1.8. Atmospheric air enters the wind tunnel through a converging–diverging nozzle where it is accelerated to supersonic velocities. Air leaves the tunnel through a converging–diverging diffuser where it is decelerated to a very low velocity before entering the fan section. Disregard any irreversibilities. Specify the temperatures and pressures at several locations as well as the mass flow rate of air at steady-flow conditions. Why is it often necessary to dehumidify the air before it enters the wind tunnel?
