Q 1) 物理作业代写

a) From first principles for actuator disc theory show that the slipstream factor b is exactly twice the inflow factor a. Your answer should include appropriate sketches.[10]

b) A propeller driven aircraft has cruise speed 90ms−1 at an altitude where the air density is ρ = 1.1kgm−3. The thrust requirement is for a drag of 2.5kN. The chosen propeller operates with thrust coefficient CT = 0.09 at efficiency η = 0.86, advance ratio J=1.4.

c) (i) Sketch and label a clear diagram of a blade element for a propeller. Your sketch must include geometric and aerodynamic angles, velocities and forces. Write down expressions for the blade element thrust and torque in terms of the blade element lift, drag and any other relevant parameter. (ii) Show that the blade element thrust is zero when


(iii) For inflow factor a=0.02, advance ratio J=1.5, at what non-dimensional spanwise location x does the blade element thrust become zero for =1?[15]

d) Perform a blade element theory calculation for the following propeller: number of blades B=2, uniform chord c=0.2m, J=1.31, D=2.7m, n = 25revs−1.
