Quiet Supersonic Jet Engine Performance Tradeoff Analysis Using a Response Surface Methodology Approach

2002-11-05
2002-01-2929
Engine performance and engine weight results are obtained through physics-based engine analysis codes developed by NASA. ...This paper focuses on the tradeoffs associated with noise, emissions and specific fuel consumption of the supersonic engine by employing design parameters such as overall pressure ratio, fan pressure ratio, turbine inlet temperature and throttle ratio. ...Recent market studies indicate a renewed interest for a quiet Supersonic Business Jet (SBJ). The success of such a program will be strongly dependent upon the achievement of stringent engine noise, emissions and fuel consumption goals.

Navy Development of Low-Cost Supersonic Turbojet Engines

1973-02-01
730362
This paper is a review of a Naval Air Systems Command program for exploratory development of a low-cost supersonic turbine engine. Design constraints, performance requirements, estimated engine costs, and latest program results are presented. ...Briefly described, the engine is 14 in in diameter, 44 in in length, produces 2300 lb thrust at Mach 1.5, sea level, (approximately 1600 lb, sea level static), and is estimated to cost $7000-11,000 in production.

Low Cost Supersonic Expendable Turbine Engines

1973-02-01
730910
The Navy is currently in the second phase of a program to develop a supersonic turbojet engine for tactical missile applications. The engines have been designed for a single mission only and for lowest possible cost. ...Three companies (AiResearch, Curtiss-Wright, and Pratt & Whitney Aircraft) are under contract to fabricate and test the critical components of their respective engine designs. Each engine is described with emphasis on its low cost design features and fabrication techniques. ...Design requirements and problems unique to expendable turbine engine development are also discussed.

Scheduling the Supersonic Transport

1964-01-01
640527
New light is shed on the problems of achieving profitable use of the SST's annual seat mile capability and the difficulties in developing a schedule pattern minimizing adverse effects of necessary subsonic segments. The supersonic is considered in terms of acceptable schedule times versus optimum utilization, fixed costs as related to purchase price and amortization, and break-even load factors versus capacity generated and per mile operating costs.

Two powered-lift concepts, the tandem fan and the longitudinally-arrayed ejector, are integrated with two existing fighter aircraft, the F-l4A and F-16A respectively, to indicate the benefits and/or penalties involved with providing STOVL capability to CTOL aircraft. It is shown that properly designed powered-lift aircraft can achieve either comparable or superior mission performance relative to CTOL aircraft.
