1 Chapter 17 COMPRESSIBLE FLOW For the most part, we have limited our consideration so far to flows for which density variations and thus compressibility effects are negligible. In this chapter we lift this limitation and consider flows that involve significant changes in density. Such flows are called compressible flows, and they are frequently encountered in devices that involve the flow of gases at very high velocities. Compressible flow combines fluid dynamics and thermodynamics in that both are necessary to the development of the required theoretical background. In this chapter, we develop the general relations associated with one-dimensional compressible flows for an ideal gas with constant specific heats. We start this chapter by introducing the concepts of stagnation state, speed of sound, and Mach number for compressible flows. The relationships between the static and stagnation fluid properties are developed for isentropic flows of ideal gases, and they are expressed as functions of specificheat ratios and the Mach number. The effects of area changes for one-dimensional isentropic subsonic and supersonic flows are discussed. These effects are illustrated by considering the isentropic flow through converging and converging diverging nozzles. The concept of shock waves and the variation of flow properties across normal and oblique shocks are discussed. Finally, we consider the effects of heat transfer on compressible flows and examine steam nozzles. Objectives The objectives of Chapter 17 are to: Develop the general relations for compressible flows encountered when gases flow at high speeds. Introduce the concepts of stagnation state, speed of sound, and Mach number for a compressible fluid. Develop the relationships between the static and stagnation fluid properties for isentropic flows of ideal gases. Derive the relationships between the static and stagnation fluid properties as functions of specific-heat ratios and Mach number. Derive the effects of area changes for one-dimensional isentropic subsonic and supersonic flows. Solve problems of isentropic flow through converging and converging diverging nozzles. Discuss the shock wave and the variation of flow properties across the shock wave. Develop the concept of duct flow with heat transfer and negligible friction known as Rayleigh flow. Examine the operation of steam nozzles commonly used in steam turbines. 849

Whenever the kinetic and potential energies of the fluid are negligible, as is often the case, the enthalpy represents the total energy of a fluid. For high-speed flows, such as those encountered in jet engines (Fig. 17 1), the potential energy of the fluid is still negligible, but the kinetic energy is not. In such cases, it is convenient to combine the enthalpy and the kinetic energy of the fluid into a single term called stagnation (or total) enthalpy h 0, defined per unit mass as (17 1) When the potential energy of the fluid is negligible, the stagnation enthalpy represents the total energy of a flowing fluid stream per unit mass. Thus it simplifies the thermodynamic analysis of high-speed flows. Throughout this chapter the ordinary enthalpy h is referred to as the static enthalpy, whenever necessary, to distinguish it from the stagnation enthalpy. Notice that the stagnation enthalpy is a combination property of a fluid, just like the static enthalpy, and these two enthalpies become identical when the kinetic energy of the fluid is negligible. Consider the steady flow of a fluid through a duct such as a nozzle, diffuser, or some other flow passage where the flow takes place adiabatically and with no shaft or electrical work, as shown in Fig. 17. Assuming the fluid experiences little or no change in its elevation and its potential energy, the energy balance relation (E. in E. out ) for this single-stream steady-flow system reduces to or h 0 h V 1kJ>kg h 1 V 1 h V (17 ) h 01 h 0 (17 3) That is, in the absence of any heat and work interactions and any changes in potential energy, the stagnation enthalpy of a fluid remains constant during a steady-flow process. Flows through nozzles and diffusers usually satisfy these conditions, and any increase in fluid velocity in these devices creates an equivalent decrease in the static enthalpy of the fluid. If the fluid were brought to a complete stop, then the velocity at state would be zero and Eq. 17 would become h 1 V 1 h h 0 Thus the stagnation enthalpy represents the enthalpy of a fluid when it is brought to rest adiabatically. During a stagnation process, the kinetic energy of a fluid is converted to enthalpy (internal energy flow energy), which results in an increase in the fluid temperature and pressure (Fig. 17 3). The properties of a fluid at the stagnation state are called stagnation properties (stagnation temperature,

3 stagnation pressure, stagnation density, etc.). The stagnation state and the stagnation properties are indicated by the subscript 0. The stagnation state is called the isentropic stagnation state when the stagnation process is reversible as well as adiabatic (i.e., isentropic). The entropy of a fluid remains constant during an isentropic stagnation process. The actual (irreversible) and isentropic stagnation processes are shown on the h-s diagram in Fig Notice that the stagnation enthalpy of the fluid (and the stagnation temperature if the fluid is an ideal gas) is the same for both cases. However, the actual stagnation pressure is lower than the isentropic stagnation pressure since entropy increases during the actual stagnation process as a result of fluid friction. The stagnation processes are often approximated to be isentropic, and the isentropic stagnation properties are simply referred to as stagnation properties. When the fluid is approximated as an ideal gas with constant specific heats, its enthalpy can be replaced by c p T and Eq can be expressed as or c p T 0 c p T V T 0 T V (17 4) Here T 0 is called the stagnation (or total) temperature, and it represents the temperature an ideal gas attains when it is brought to rest adiabatically. The term V /c p corresponds to the temperature rise during such a process and is called the dynamic temperature. For example, the dynamic temperature of air flowing at 100 m/s is (100 m/s) /( kj/kg K) 5.0 K. Therefore, when air at 300 K and 100 m/s is brought to rest adiabatically (at the tip of a temperature probe, for example), its temperature rises to the stagnation value of 305 K (Fig. 17 5). Note that for low-speed flows, the stagnation and static (or ordinary) temperatures are practically the same. But for high-speed flows, the temperature measured by a stationary probe placed in the fluid (the stagnation temperature) may be significantly higher than the static temperature of the fluid. The pressure a fluid attains when brought to rest isentropically is called the stagnation pressure P 0. For ideal gases with constant specific heats, P 0 is related to the static pressure of the fluid by P 0 P a T 0 T b k>1k 1 (17 5) By noting that r 1/v and using the isentropic relation Pv k P 0 v 0 k, the ratio of the stagnation density to static density can be expressed as r 0 r a T 0 T b 1>1k 1 (17 6) When stagnation enthalpies are used, there is no need to refer explicitly to kinetic energy. Then the energy balance E # in E # out for a single-stream, steady-flow device can be expressed as c p q in w in 1h 01 gz 1 q out w out 1h 0 gz (17 7) Chapter FIGURE 17 3 Kinetic energy is converted to enthalpy during a stagnation process.

EXAMPLE 17 1 Compression of High-Speed Air in an Aircraft An aircraft is flying at a cruising speed of 50 m/s at an altitude of 5000 m where the atmospheric pressure is kpa and the ambient air temperature is 55.7 K. The ambient air is first decelerated in a diffuser before it enters the compressor (Fig. 17 6). Assuming both the diffuser and the compressor to be isentropic, determine (a) the stagnation pressure at the compressor inlet and (b) the required compressor work per unit mass if the stagnation pressure ratio of the compressor is 8. Solution High-speed air enters the diffuser and the compressor of an aircraft. The stagnation pressure of air and the compressor work input are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Both the diffuser and the compressor are isentropic. Air is an ideal gas with constant specific heats at room temperature. Properties The constant-pressure specific heat c p and the specific heat ratio k of air at room temperature are (Table A a) Analysis (a) Under isentropic conditions, the stagnation pressure at the compressor inlet (diffuser exit) can be determined from Eq However, first we need to find the stagnation temperature T 01 at the compressor inlet. Under the stated assumptions, T 01 can be determined from Eq to be 86.8 K Then from Eq. 17 5, c p kj>kg # K and k 1.4 T 01 T 1 V 1 c p 55.7 K P 01 P 1 a T k>1k 1 01 b kpa a 86.8 K 1.4> T K b kpa 150 m>s kj>kg # K a 1 kj>kg 1000 m >s b That is, the temperature of air would increase by 31.1 C and the pressure by 6.7 kpa as air is decelerated from 50 m/s to zero velocity. These increases in the temperature and pressure of air are due to the conversion of the kinetic energy into enthalpy. (b) To determine the compressor work, we need to know the stagnation temperature of air at the compressor exit T 0. The stagnation pressure ratio across the compressor P 0 /P 01 is specified to be 8. Since the compression process is assumed to be isentropic, T 0 can be determined from the idealgas isentropic relation (Eq. 17 5): T 0 T 01 a P 1k 1>k 0 b K > K P 01

5 Chapter Disregarding potential energy changes and heat transfer, the compressor work per unit mass of air is determined from Eq. 17 8: w in c p 1T 0 T kj>kg # K K 86.8 K 33.9 kj/kg Thus the work supplied to the compressor is 33.9 kj/kg. Discussion Notice that using stagnation properties automatically accounts for any changes in the kinetic energy of a fluid stream. 17 SPEED OF SOUND AND MACH NUMBER An important parameter in the study of compressible flow is the speed of sound (or the sonic speed), which is the speed at which an infinitesimally small pressure wave travels through a medium. The pressure wave may be caused by a small disturbance, which creates a slight rise in local pressure. To obtain a relation for the speed of sound in a medium, consider a pipe that is filled with a fluid at rest, as shown in Fig A piston fitted in the pipe is now moved to the right with a constant incremental velocity dv, creating a sonic wave. The wave front moves to the right through the fluid at the speed of sound c and separates the moving fluid adjacent to the piston from the fluid still at rest. The fluid to the left of the wave front experiences an incremental change in its thermodynamic properties, while the fluid on the right of the wave front maintains its original thermodynamic properties, as shown in Fig To simplify the analysis, consider a control volume that encloses the wave front and moves with it, as shown in Fig To an observer traveling with the wave front, the fluid to the right will appear to be moving toward the wave front with a speed of c and the fluid to the left to be moving away from the wave front with a speed of c dv. Of course, the observer will think the control volume that encloses the wave front (and herself or himself) is stationary, and the observer will be witnessing a steady-flow process. The mass balance for this single-stream, steady-flow process can be expressed as or rac 1r dra 1c dv By canceling the cross-sectional (or flow) area A and neglecting the higherorder terms, this equation reduces to No heat or work crosses the boundaries of the control volume during this steady-flow process, and the potential energy change, if any, can be neglected.

6 854 Thermodynamics which yields dh c dv 0 where we have neglected the second-order term dv. The amplitude of the ordinary sonic wave is very small and does not cause any appreciable change in the pressure and temperature of the fluid. Therefore, the propagation of a sonic wave is not only adiabatic but also very nearly isentropic. Then the second Tdsrelation developed in Chapter 7 reduces to T ds 0 dh dp r (b) or dh dp r (c) Combining Eqs. a, b, and c yields the desired expression for the speed of sound as c dp at s constant dr or c a 0P (17 9) 0r b s It is left as an exercise for the reader to show, by using thermodynamic property relations (see Chap. 1) that Eq can also be written as c k a 0P 0r b T (17 10) where k is the specific heat ratio of the fluid. Note that the speed of sound in a fluid is a function of the thermodynamic properties of that fluid. When the fluid is an ideal gas (P rrt), the differentiation in Eq can easily be performed to yield AIR HELIUM or c k a 0P 0r b k c 0 1rRT d krt T 0r T 84 m/s 347 m/s 634 m/s 00 K 300 K 1000 K 83 m/s 1019 m/s 1861 m/s c krt (17 11) Noting that the gas constant R has a fixed value for a specified ideal gas and the specific heat ratio k of an ideal gas is, at most, a function of temperature, we see that the speed of sound in a specified ideal gas is a function of temperature alone (Fig. 17 9). A second important parameter in the analysis of compressible fluid flow is the Mach number Ma, named after the Austrian physicist Ernst Mach ( ). It is the ratio of the actual velocity of the fluid (or an object in still air) to the speed of sound in the same fluid at the same state: FIGURE 17 9 The speed of sound changes with temperature and varies with the fluid. Ma V c (17 1) Note that the Mach number depends on the speed of sound, which depends on the state of the fluid. Therefore, the Mach number of an aircraft cruising

7 at constant velocity in still air may be different at different locations (Fig ). Fluid flow regimes are often described in terms of the flow Mach number. The flow is called sonic when Ma 1, subsonic when Ma 1, supersonic when Ma 1, hypersonic when Ma 1, and transonic when Ma 1. EXAMPLE 17 Mach Number of Air Entering a Diffuser Air enters a diffuser shown in Fig with a velocity of 00 m/s. Determine (a) the speed of sound and (b) the Mach number at the diffuser inlet when the air temperature is 30 C. Solution Air enters a diffuser with a high velocity. The speed of sound and the Mach number are to be determined at the diffuser inlet. Assumptions Air at specified conditions behaves as an ideal gas. Properties The gas constant of air is R 0.87 kj/kg K, and its specific heat ratio at 30 C is 1.4 (Table A a). Analysis We note that the speed of sound in a gas varies with temperature, which is given to be 30 C. (a) The speed of sound in air at 30 C is determined from Eq to be c krt B kj>kg # K1303 Ka 1000 m >s (b) Then the Mach number becomes Ma V c 00 m>s 349 m>s kj>kg b 349 m /s Discussion The flow at the diffuser inlet is subsonic since Ma 1.

AIR V = 00 m/s T = 30 C Diffuser FIGURE Schematic for Example ONE-DIMENSIONAL ISENTROPIC FLOW During fluid flow through many devices such as nozzles, diffusers, and turbine blade passages, flow quantities vary primarily in the flow direction only, and the flow can be approximated as one-dimensional isentropic flow with good accuracy. Therefore, it merits special consideration. Before presenting a formal discussion of one-dimensional isentropic flow, we illustrate some important aspects of it with an example. EXAMPLE 17 3 Gas Flow through a Converging Diverging Duct Carbon dioxide flows steadily through a varying cross-sectional-area duct such as a nozzle shown in Fig at a mass flow rate of 3 kg/s. The carbon dioxide enters the duct at a pressure of 1400 kpa and 00 C with a low velocity, and it expands in the nozzle to a pressure of 00 kpa. The duct is designed so that the flow can be approximated as isentropic. Determine the density, velocity, flow area, and Mach number at each location along the duct that corresponds to a pressure drop of 00 kpa. Solution Carbon dioxide enters a varying cross-sectional-area duct at specified conditions. The flow properties are to be determined along the duct. Stagnation region: 1400 kpa 00 C CO m kg/s P, kpa FIGURE 17 1 Schematic for Example 17 3.

8 856 Thermodynamics Assumptions 1 Carbon dioxide is an ideal gas with constant specific heats at room temperature. Flow through the duct is steady, one-dimensional, and isentropic. Properties For simplicity we use c p kj/kg K and k 1.89 throughout the calculations, which are the constant-pressure specific heat and specific heat ratio values of carbon dioxide at room temperature. The gas constant of carbon dioxide is R kj/kg K (Table A a). Analysis We note that the inlet temperature is nearly equal to the stagnation temperature since the inlet velocity is small. The flow is isentropic, and thus the stagnation temperature and pressure throughout the duct remain constant. Therefore, and To illustrate the solution procedure, we calculate the desired properties at the location where the pressure is 100 kpa, the first location that corresponds to a pressure drop of 00 kpa. From Eq. 17 5, From Eq. 17 4, From the ideal-gas relation, From the mass flow rate relation, From Eqs and 17 1, 1000 m c krt kj>kg # >s K1457 K a b m>s B 1 kj>kg Ma V c T T 0 a P 1k 1>k b P 0 V c p 1T 0 T A m# rv B kj>kg # K1473 K 457 K a 1000 m >s 3 1 kj>kg b m/s r P RT 3 kg>s kg>m m>s m 13.1 cm m>s m>s T 0 T 1 00 C 473 K P 0 P kpa > kpa 1473 Ka 1400 kpa b 457 K 100 kpa kpa # m 3 >kg # K1457 K 13.9 kg/m 3 The results for the other pressure steps are summarized in Table 17 1 and are plotted in Fig Discussion Note that as the pressure decreases, the temperature and speed of sound decrease while the fluid velocity and Mach number increase in the flow direction. The density decreases slowly at first and rapidly later as the fluid velocity increases.

We note from Example 17 3 that the flow area decreases with decreasing pressure up to a critical-pressure value where the Mach number is unity, and then it begins to increase with further reductions in pressure. The Mach number is unity at the location of smallest flow area, called the throat (Fig ). Note that the velocity of the fluid keeps increasing after passing the throat although the flow area increases rapidly in that region. This increase in velocity past the throat is due to the rapid decrease in the fluid density. The flow area of the duct considered in this example first decreases and then increases. Such ducts are called converging diverging nozzles. These nozzles are used to accelerate gases to supersonic speeds and should not be confused with Venturi nozzles, which are used strictly for incompressible flow. The first use of such a nozzle occurred in 1893 in a steam turbine

B. de Laval ( ), and therefore converging diverging nozzles are often called Laval nozzles. Variation of Fluid Velocity with Flow Area It is clear from Example 17 3 that the couplings among the velocity, density, and flow areas for isentropic duct flow are rather complex. In the remainder of this section we investigate these couplings more thoroughly, and we develop relations for the variation of static-to-stagnation property ratios with the Mach number for pressure, temperature, and density. We begin our investigation by seeking relationships among the pressure, temperature, density, velocity, flow area, and Mach number for onedimensional isentropic flow. Consider the mass balance for a steady-flow process: m # rav constant Differentiating and dividing the resultant equation by the mass flow rate, we obtain dr r da A dv V 0 (17 13) CONSERVATION OF ENERGY (steady flow, w = 0, q = 0, Δpe = 0) h 1 + V 1 = h + V or h + V = constant Differentiate, dh + V dv = 0 Also, 0 (isentropic) T ds = dh v dp dh = v dp = r 1 dp Substitute, dp r + V dv = 0 FIGURE Derivation of the differential form of the energy equation for steady isentropic flow. Neglecting the potential energy, the energy balance for an isentropic flow with no work interactions can be expressed in the differential form as (Fig ) dp r V dv 0 (17 14) This relation is also the differential form of Bernoulli s equation when changes in potential energy are negligible, which is a form of the conservation of momentum principle for steady-flow control volumes. Combining Eqs and gives da A dp r a 1 V dr dp b (17 15) Rearranging Eq as ( r/ P) s 1/c and substituting into Eq yield da A dp rv 11 Ma (17 16) This is an important relation for isentropic flow in ducts since it describes the variation of pressure with flow area. We note that A, r, and V are positive quantities. For subsonic flow (Ma 1), the term 1 Ma is positive; and thus da and dp must have the same sign. That is, the pressure of the fluid must increase as the flow area of the duct increases and must decrease as the flow area of the duct decreases. Thus, at subsonic velocities, the pressure decreases in converging ducts (subsonic nozzles) and increases in diverging ducts (subsonic diffusers). In supersonic flow (Ma 1), the term 1 Ma is negative, and thus da and dp must have opposite signs. That is, the pressure of the fluid must

11 increase as the flow area of the duct decreases and must decrease as the flow area of the duct increases. Thus, at supersonic velocities, the pressure decreases in diverging ducts (supersonic nozzles) and increases in converging ducts (supersonic diffusers). Another important relation for the isentropic flow of a fluid is obtained by substituting rv dp/dv from Eq into Eq : Chapter da A dv V 11 Ma (17 17) This equation governs the shape of a nozzle or a diffuser in subsonic or supersonic isentropic flow. Noting that A and V are positive quantities, we conclude the following: For subsonic flow 1Ma 6 1, For supersonic flow 1Ma 7 1, For sonic flow 1Ma 1, da dv 6 0 da dv 7 0 da dv 0 Thus the proper shape of a nozzle depends on the highest velocity desired relative to the sonic velocity. To accelerate a fluid, we must use a converging nozzle at subsonic velocities and a diverging nozzle at supersonic velocities. The velocities encountered in most familiar applications are well below the sonic velocity, and thus it is natural that we visualize a nozzle as a converging duct. However, the highest velocity we can achieve by a converging nozzle is the sonic velocity, which occurs at the exit of the nozzle. If we extend the converging nozzle by further decreasing the flow area, in hopes of accelerating the fluid to supersonic velocities, as shown in Fig , we are up for disappointment. Now the sonic velocity will occur at the exit of the converging extension, instead of the exit of the original nozzle, and the mass flow rate through the nozzle will decrease because of the reduced exit area. Based on Eq , which is an expression of the conservation of mass and energy principles, we must add a diverging section to a converging nozzle to accelerate a fluid to supersonic velocities. The result is a converging diverging nozzle. The fluid first passes through a subsonic (converging) section, where the Mach number increases as the flow area of the nozzle decreases, and then reaches the value of unity at the nozzle throat. The fluid continues to accelerate as it passes through a supersonic (diverging) section. Noting that ṁ rav for steady flow, we see that the large decrease in density makes acceleration in the diverging section possible. An example of this type of flow is the flow of hot combustion gases through a nozzle in a gas turbine. The opposite process occurs in the engine inlet of a supersonic aircraft. The fluid is decelerated by passing it first through a supersonic diffuser, which has a flow area that decreases in the flow direction. Ideally, the flow reaches a Mach number of unity at the diffuser throat. The fluid is further P 0, T 0 Converging MaA = 1 nozzle (sonic) P 0, T 0 Converging nozzle A A Ma A < 1 B Attachment MaB = 1 (sonic) FIGURE We cannot obtain supersonic velocities by attaching a converging section to a converging nozzle. Doing so will only move the sonic cross section farther downstream and decrease the mass flow rate.

We assume the flow is isentropic and the gas has constant specific heats. The temperature T of an ideal gas anywhere in the flow is related to the stagnation temperature T 0 through Eq. 17 4: or Noting that c p kr/(k 1), c krt, and Ma V/c, we see that Substituting yields T 0 T V c p T 0 T 1 V c p T V c p T V 3kR>1k 14T a k 1 b V c a k 1 b Ma which is the desired relation between T 0 and T.

The properties of a fluid at a location where the Mach number is unity (the throat) are called critical properties, and the ratios in Eqs. (17 18) through (17 0) are called critical ratios (Fig ).

Also, property values other than these at the throat would indicate that the flow is not critical, and the Mach number is not unity.

Since the fluid velocity in the reservoir is zero and the flow through the nozzle is approximated as isentropic, the stagnation pressure and stagnation temperature of the fluid at any cross section through the nozzle are equal to the reservoir pressure and temperature, respectively.

15 Now we begin to reduce the back pressure and observe the resulting effects on the pressure distribution along the length of the nozzle, as shown in Fig If the back pressure P b is equal to P 1, which is equal to P r, there is no flow and the pressure distribution is uniform along the nozzle. When the back pressure is reduced to P, the exit plane pressure P e also drops to P. This causes the pressure along the nozzle to decrease in the flow direction. When the back pressure is reduced to P 3 ( P*, which is the pressure required to increase the fluid velocity to the speed of sound at the exit plane or throat), the mass flow reaches a maximum value and the flow is said to be choked. Further reduction of the back pressure to level P 4 or below does not result in additional changes in the pressure distribution, or anything else along the nozzle length. Under steady-flow conditions, the mass flow rate through the nozzle is constant and can be expressed as Chapter m # rav a P RT b A 1MakRT PAMa k B RT Solving for T from Eq and for P from Eq and substituting, m # AMaP 0 k>1rt k 1Ma >4 1k 1>31k 14 (17 4) Thus the mass flow rate of a particular fluid through a nozzle is a function of the stagnation properties of the fluid, the flow area, and the Mach number. Equation 17 4 is valid at any cross section, and thus ṁ can be evaluated at any location along the length of the nozzle. For a specified flow area A and stagnation properties T 0 and P 0, the maximum mass flow rate can be determined by differentiating Eq with respect to Ma and setting the result equal to zero. It yields Ma 1. Since the only location in a nozzle where the Mach number can be unity is the location of minimum flow area (the throat), the mass flow rate through a nozzle is a maximum when Ma 1 at the throat. Denoting this area by A*, we obtain an expression for the maximum mass flow rate by substituting Ma 1 in Eq. 17 4: m m max P e /P P* P P b P 0 m # 1k 1> 31k 14 k max A*P 0 a B RT 0 k 1 b (17 5) Thus, for a particular ideal gas, the maximum mass flow rate through a nozzle with a given throat area is fixed by the stagnation pressure and temperature of the inlet flow. The flow rate can be controlled by changing the stagnation pressure or temperature, and thus a converging nozzle can be used as a flowmeter. The flow rate can also be controlled, of course, by varying the throat area. This principle is vitally important for chemical processes, medical devices, flowmeters, and anywhere the mass flux of a gas must be known and controlled. A plot of ṁ versus P b /P 0 for a converging nozzle is shown in Fig Notice that the mass flow rate increases with decreasing P b /P 0, reaches a maximum at P b P*, and remains constant for P b /P 0 values less than this P* P 0 0 P* P P b P 0 FIGURE 17 1 The effect of back pressure P b on the mass flow rate m # and the exit pressure P e of a converging nozzle.

We observe that P e e P b for P b P* P* for P b 6 P* To summarize, for all back pressures lower than the critical pressure P*, the pressure at the exit plane of the converging nozzle P e is equal to P*, the Mach number at the exit plane is unity, and the mass flow rate is the maximum (or choked) flow rate. Because the velocity of the flow is sonic at the throat for the maximum flow rate, a back pressure lower than the critical pressure cannot be sensed in the nozzle upstream flow and does not affect the flow rate. The effects of the stagnation temperature T 0 and stagnation pressure P 0 on the mass flow rate through a converging nozzle are illustrated in Fig. 17 where the mass flow rate is plotted against the static-to-stagnation pressure ratio at the throat P t /P 0. An increase in P 0 (or a decrease in T 0 ) will increase the mass flow rate through the converging nozzle; a decrease in P 0 (or an increase in T 0 ) will decrease it. We could also conclude this by carefully observing Eqs and A relation for the variation of flow area A through the nozzle relative to throat area A* can be obtained by combining Eqs and 17 5 for the same mass flow rate and stagnation properties of a particular fluid. This yields A A* 1 Ma ca k 1 ba1 k 1 1k 1> 31k 14 Ma bd (17 6) Table A 3 gives values of A/A* as a function of the Mach number for air (k 1.4). There is one value of A/A* for each value of the Mach number, but there are two possible values of the Mach number for each value of A/A* one for subsonic flow and another for supersonic flow. m Ma t = 1 Ma t < 1 Increase in P 0, decrease in T 0, or both P 0, T 0 Decrease in P 0, increase in T 0, or both FIGURE 17 The variation of the mass flow rate through a nozzle with inlet stagnation properties. 0 P* P P t P 0

17 Another parameter sometimes used in the analysis of one-dimensional isentropic flow of ideal gases is Ma*, which is the ratio of the local velocity to the speed of sound at the throat: Chapter Ma* V c* (17 7) It can also be expressed as Ma* V c c c* Mac c* MakRT krt* Ma T B T* where Ma is the local Mach number, T is the local temperature, and T* is the critical temperature. Solving for T from Eq and for T* from Eq and substituting, we get Ma* Ma B k 1 1k 1Ma (17 8) Values of Ma* are also listed in Table A 3 versus the Mach number for k 1.4 (Fig. 17 3). Note that the parameter Ma* differs from the Mach number Ma in that Ma* is the local velocity nondimensionalized with respect to the sonic velocity at the throat, whereas Ma is the local velocity nondimensionalized with respect to the local sonic velocity. (Recall that the sonic velocity in a nozzle varies with temperature and thus with location.)

EXAMPLE 17 5 Effect of Back Pressure on Mass Flow Rate Air at 1 MPa and 600 C enters a converging nozzle, shown in Fig. 17 4, with a velocity of 150 m/s. Determine the mass flow rate through the nozzle for a nozzle throat area of 50 cm when the back pressure is (a) 0.7 MPa and (b) 0.4 MPa. Solution Air enters a converging nozzle. The mass flow rate of air through the nozzle is to be determined for different back pressures. Assumptions 1 Air is an ideal gas with constant specific heats at room temperature. Flow through the nozzle is steady, one-dimensional, and isentropic. Properties The constant-pressure specific heat and the specific heat ratio of air are c p kj/kg K and k 1.4, respectively (Table A a). Analysis We use the subscripts i and t to represent the properties at the nozzle inlet and the throat, respectively.

18 866 Thermodynamics The critical-pressure ratio is determined from Table 17 (or Eq. 17 ) to be P*/P (a) The back pressure ratio for this case is which is greater than the critical-pressure ratio, Thus the exit plane pressure (or throat pressure P t ) is equal to the back pressure in this case. That is, P t P b 0.7 MPa, and P t /P Therefore, the flow is not choked. From Table A 3 at P t /P , we read Ma t and T t /T The mass flow rate through the nozzle can be calculated from Eq But it can also be determined in a step-by-step manner as follows: Thus, r t P t RT t V t Ma t c t Ma t krt t m # r t A t V t kg>m m m>s 6.77 kg/s (b) The back pressure ratio for this case is which is less than the critical-pressure ratio, Therefore, sonic conditions exist at the exit plane (throat) of the nozzle, and Ma 1. The flow is choked in this case, and the mass flow rate through the nozzle can be calculated from Eq. 17 5: m # 1k 1>31k 14 k A*P 0 a B RT 0 k 1 b.4> m kpa B kj>kg # a K1884 K b 7.10 kg/s B kj>kg # K Ka 1000 m >s 1 kj>kg b m>s P b 0.7 MPa P MPa T t 0.89T K K 700 kpa kpa # m 3 >kg # K K kg>m 3 P b 0.4 MPa P MPa since kpa # m > kj>kg 1000 kg>s. Discussion This is the maximum mass flow rate through the nozzle for the specified inlet conditions and nozzle throat area.

Flow through the nozzle is steady, one-dimensional, and isentropic. Analysis The schematic of the duct is shown in Fig For isentropic flow through a duct, the area ratio A/A* (the flow area over the area of the throat where Ma 1) is also listed in Table A 3. At the initial Mach number of Ma 1 0.3, we read A 1 A*.0351 T 1 T P 1 P With a 0 percent reduction in flow area, A 0.8A 1, and T 1 = 400 K P 1 = 100 kpa Ma 1 = 0.3 A 1 N Nozzle T P Ma A = 0.8A 1 FIGURE 17 5 Schematic for Example 17 6 (not to scale). A A* A A A 1 A* For this value of A /A* from Table A 3, we read T T P P Ma Here we chose the subsonic Mach number for the calculated A /A* instead of the supersonic one because the duct is converging in the flow direction and the initial flow is subsonic.

Discussion Note that the temperature and pressure drop as the fluid accelerates in a converging nozzle. Converging Diverging Nozzles When we think of nozzles, we ordinarily think of flow passages whose cross-sectional area decreases in the flow direction. However, the highest velocity to which a fluid can be accelerated in a converging nozzle is limited to the sonic velocity (Ma 1), which occurs at the exit plane (throat) of the nozzle. Accelerating a fluid to supersonic velocities (Ma 1) can be accomplished only by attaching a diverging flow section to the subsonic nozzle at the throat. The resulting combined flow section is a converging diverging nozzle, which is standard equipment in supersonic aircraft and rocket propulsion (Fig. 17 6). Forcing a fluid through a converging diverging nozzle is no guarantee that the fluid will be accelerated to a supersonic velocity. In fact, the fluid may find itself decelerating in the diverging section instead of accelerating if the back pressure is not in the right range. The state of the nozzle flow is determined by the overall pressure ratio P b /P 0. Therefore, for given inlet conditions, the flow through a converging diverging nozzle is governed by the back pressure P b, as will be explained.

20 868 Thermodynamics FIGURE 17 6 Converging diverging nozzles are commonly used in rocket engines to provide high thrust. Courtesy of Pratt and Whitney, Used by permission. Consider the converging diverging nozzle shown in Fig A fluid enters the nozzle with a low velocity at stagnation pressure P 0. When P b P 0 (case A), there will be no flow through the nozzle. This is expected since the flow in a nozzle is driven by the pressure difference between the nozzle inlet and the exit. Now let us examine what happens as the back pressure is lowered. 1. When P 0 P b P C, the flow remains subsonic throughout the nozzle, and the mass flow is less than that for choked flow. The fluid velocity increases in the first (converging) section and reaches a maximum at the throat (but Ma 1). However, most of the gain in velocity is lost in the second (diverging) section of the nozzle, which acts as a diffuser. The pressure decreases in the converging section, reaches a minimum at the throat, and increases at the expense of velocity in the diverging section.. When P b P C, the throat pressure becomes P* and the fluid achieves sonic velocity at the throat. But the diverging section of the nozzle still acts as a diffuser, slowing the fluid to subsonic velocities. The mass flow rate that was increasing with decreasing P b also reaches its maximum value. Recall that P* is the lowest pressure that can be obtained at the throat, and the sonic velocity is the highest velocity that can be achieved with a converging nozzle. Thus, lowering P b further has no influence on the fluid flow in the converging part of the nozzle or the

However, it does influence the character of the flow in the diverging section. 3. When P C P b P E, the fluid that achieved a sonic velocity at the throat continues accelerating to supersonic velocities in the diverging section as the pressure decreases. This acceleration comes to a sudden stop, however, as a normal shock develops at a section between the throat and the exit plane, which causes a sudden drop in velocity to subsonic levels and a sudden increase in pressure. The fluid then continues to decelerate further in the remaining part of the converging diverging nozzle. Flow through the shock is highly irreversible, and thus it cannot be approximated as isentropic. The normal shock moves downstream away from the throat as P b is decreased, and it approaches the nozzle exit plane as P b approaches P E. When P b P E, the normal shock forms at the exit plane of the nozzle. The flow is supersonic through the entire diverging section in this case, and it can be approximated as isentropic. However, the fluid velocity drops to subsonic levels just before leaving the nozzle as it

22 870 Thermodynamics crosses the normal shock. Normal shock waves are discussed in Section When P E P b 0, the flow in the diverging section is supersonic, and the fluid expands to P F at the nozzle exit with no normal shock forming within the nozzle. Thus, the flow through the nozzle can be approximated as isentropic. When P b P F, no shocks occur within or outside the nozzle. When P b P F, irreversible mixing and expansion waves occur downstream of the exit plane of the nozzle. When P b P F, however, the pressure of the fluid increases from P F to P b irreversibly in the wake of the nozzle exit, creating what are called oblique shocks.

The flow is steady, one-dimensional, and isentropic with k 1.4. For an exit Mach number of Ma and a throat area of 0 cm, determine (a) the throat conditions, (b) the exit plane conditions, including the exit area, and (c) the mass flow rate through the nozzle. FIGURE 17 8 Schematic for Example Solution Air flows through a converging diverging nozzle. The throat and the exit conditions and the mass flow rate are to be determined.

Properties The specific heat ratio of air is given to be k 1.4. The gas constant of air is 0.87 kj/kg K. Analysis The exit Mach number is given to be. Therefore, the flow must be sonic at the throat and supersonic in the diverging section of the nozzle.
