Preliminary study of turbojets with rotary flow inductors for a low-noise supersonic transport

By Jr. J. F. Dugan


In a simplified airplane-mission study for a Mach 2.61 supersonic transport, dry turbojets with and without real suppressors and dry turbojets with ideal rotary flow inductors were studied for sideline noise levels as low as FAR 36-20. Compressor pressure ratio was varied from 5 to 30 and turbine temperature from 1800 to 3000 F. For no noise constraint and without a suppressor, the best dry turbojet gave a payload of 9.0 percent of gross weight and a sideline noise of 126 effective perceived noise decibels. Payload dropped rapidly for lower noise goals, becoming 6.3 percent of gross weight at FAR 36. At FAR 36, the turbojet with suppressor gave a payload of 8.3 percent and the turbojet with ideal rotary flow inductor, 7.3 percent. Below FAR 36, the ideal inductor was far superior to the real suppressor, giving payloads of 6.6 percent at FAR 36-10 and 5.7 percent at FAR 36-20
