Example text

If the density altitude is 8,000 ft, find the true temperature at that altitude. 5 An airplane is fitted with an altimeter which is calibrated according to the standard atmosphere. On a certain day the pressure at sea-level is found to be 2,130 Ibs/ft2 and the measured temperature is 50 dcg. F. 0039 deg. R per foot of altitude. If on this same day, the altimeter reads 15,000 ft, what is the true altitude of the airplane above sea-level? 92 in. Hg reads zero feet when Lhe airplane is on the ground at an airport which is 1,500 ft above sea-level.

The actual composition of the atmosphere varies with geographical locations and altitudes. However, in most applications to conventional aerodynamics, the atmosphere can be regarded as a homogeneous gas of uniform composition. 1) is also referred to as the equation of state. Note that when using Eqn ( I. 1) the temperature, T, must be the absolute temperature of the gas. When a significant amount of moisture (water vapor) is present in the atmosphere, the air density will change. To determine how water vapor affects air density, consider a given vulume filled with a dry air and water vapor mixture.

For horizontal flow that certainly is acceptable. 7) Since m = QAds . 8) is referred to as Euler's equation of motion along a streamline. 9) This result is known as the incompressible Bernoulli equation. It is applicable along a streamline in incompressible flow. 7) slales lhal the work done by the pressure forces equals the change in the kinetic energy of the air mass. 9) is not applicable in situations where energy is added to the airt1ow. The latter is the case injet engines and in propellers.
