C, E, and G are the relative winds as 'seen' by the blades of the 1st stage rotor, the blades of the 1st stage stator and the blades of the 2nd stage rotor, respectively. C is the result of the vector addition of B and Y E is the result of the vector addition of D and X G is the result of the vector addition of F and Y

This one sort of reminds one of the physics quandary of whether light is a particle or a wave. Let's treat the incoming air as a continuous energy wave. One can see, although the incoming airflow is 90 degrees to the next part of the inlet/rotor/stator/rotor diagram, the trailing edge of the "top wing" would "bounce" the wave right into ...

@Federico reminder has complicated a bit the answering process, but now we understand your actual problem, I can provide a focused answer immediately below, I've moved other elements at the end, you may ignore them as they were aimed to clarify your question and are indeed no more relevant. If I consider Y as relative velocity, Then X should also be the ...

In class, we haven't talked about it as a specific recovery point. But as a gradual increase in thrust based on airspeed. Q: How does the thrust decrease? Airspeed thrust decreases as the altitude increases. (High altitude = low pressure/less air) less air = less thrust Q: How does ram pressure increase? Ram pressure increases when you fly into the air ...

The thrust ($T$) of an engine is $T = Q(V_{out}-V_{in})$ where $Q$ is the mass flow through the engine, $V_{out}$ is the exit velocity of the exhaust gas and $V_{in}$ is the speed at which the air flow enters the engine inlet. The mass flow $Q$ is a product of volume of the air sucked by the engine and air density. When engine is producing considerable ...

The overall compression ratio is known as OPR. Wikipedia states the definition very well: overall pressure ratio, or overall compression ratio, is the ratio of the stagnation pressure as measured at the front and rear of the compressor of a gas turbine engine But, should read … as measured at the front of the first compression process and the exit of the ...
