Fluid velocities are small compared with the velocity of sound 2. Density is constant 3. Compressibility factor is one

Write the steady flow energy equation for an adiabatic flow of air. In an adiabatic flow q = 0. Therefore energy equation becomes, h1 + c12/2 + gZ1 = h2 + c22/2 + gZ2 + W1 Adiabatic energy equation is h0 = h + 1/2c22 Explain the meaning of stagnation state with example. The state of fluid attained by isentropically decelerating it to zero velocity at zero elevation is referred as stagnation state. E.g. Fluid in a reservoir or in a settling chamber Distinguish between static and stagnation pressures. In stagnation pressure state the velocity of the flowing fluid is zero whereas in the static pressure, the fluid velocity is not equal to zero Differentiate between the static and stagnation temperatures. The actual temperature of the fluid in a particular state is known as static temperature whereas the temperature of the fluid when the fluid velocity is zero at zero elevation known as stagnation temperature To = T+c2/2Cp What is the use of Mach number? Mach number is defined as the ratio between the local fluid velocity to the velocity of sound. Mach number M=c/a. It is used for the analysis of compressible fluid flow problems. Critical mach number is a dimensionless number at which fluid velocity is equal to its sound velocity. Mcritical = (c/a) 1 What is Crocco number? It is a non-dimensional fluid velocity which is defined as the ratio of fluid velocity to its maximum fluid velocity, Cr=c/cmax Write down the relationship between stagnation and static temperature interms of the flow, mach number for the case of isentropic flow.

What are the different regions of compressible flow? Incompressible region Subsonic region Transonic region Supersonic region Hypersonic region Define M* and give the relation between M and M* It is a non-dimensional mach number and is defined by the ratio between the local fluid velocity to its critical velocity of sound, M* = c/a* A plane travels at a speed of 2400Km/hr in an atmosphere of 5 degree, find the Mach angle? C=2400/3.6 = 666.67 T=278K M=c/ RT=1.9947 =sin-1(1/M) = 30.0876 Define Mach angle and Mach wedge. Mach angle is formed when an object is moving with supersonic speed. The wave propagation and changes are smooth. When an object is moving with hypersonic speed the changes are abrupt is shown in figure. Hence for a supersonic flow over twodimensional object mach wedge is used instead of mach cone. What is meant by isentropic flow with variable area? A steady one dimensional isentropic flow in a variable area passages is called variable area flow. The heat transfer is negligible and there are no other irreversibilities due to fluid friction. Define Mach cone. Tangents drawn from the source point on the spheres define a conical surface referred to as Mach cone. What is characteristic Mach number? M* = [M2(-1)/2+ M2(-1)]1/2 If an aeroplane goes to higher altitudes maintaining the same speed what will happen to the Mach number? At higher altitude the sound velocity a will decrease and hence M will increase. Therefore, M is not a constant. Define open and closed system. In open system both mass and energy transfer takes place. But in closed system mass transfer does not occur; only energy transfer takes place.
