layer flow 12 Axial flow compressors are characterized by flow passages whose radial coordinates change little over the length of the machine while centrifugal compressors have blade passages that start near the axis of rotation and increase substantially in radius by the time the exit of the machine is reached Some idea of the difference is afforded by the accompanying photograph from NASA showing examples of two such machines side by side Consider standard sea level air entering a centrifugal flow compressor with the following conditions r2 6in c2 300fts and ocz 70 The air leaves the rotor with r3 18in c3 1200fts 0 25 The rotational speed of the compressor is 90001pm and it processes 3221bs of air Carry out the following a draw the combined entrance and exit velocity diagrams to

engines introduced the high bypass turbofan Before the TF39 bypass ratios of turbofan engines were less than twotoone The TF39 showed that b ss ratios of 8 were possible far more than the bypass ratio of 2 that was common at the time This innovation resulted in specific fuel consumption as much as 25 less than previous other available engines In the late 6039s Lockheed and Douglas entered the commercial widebody airliner market with their trijet offerings GE introduced a new engine design the CF650 modeled after the TF39 for use on the Douglas DClO and Lockheed LlOll Considering a generic layout of the CF650 as shown below and assuming that the engine is operating in a groundbased test cell determine a the power developed by the low pressure and high pressure turbines b the thrust
