Air Flow Volume into Jet Engines

06/09/2009 11:08 PM

air flow volume into jet engines? Is there a standard measure? Is there a comparative volume for air forced by a propellor?

OK. There must be a relationship between the inlet area of the duct and the velocity of the aircraft....

Does that help?

Tjhank you for response. Yes. - I am looking for volume of air processed by jet engines, and controlling flow of such. I am looking at technical data too, but am looking for some gneral principles.

Trying to help, but not sure where you are going...

Volume is measured, but not controlled.

Flow is ~roughly~ controlled by fuel.

Try looking up:

N1, N2 Pressure ratio

EPR

TGT

That will allow us to get to common terms.

Thanks. IU will re-phrase the question, and re-post.
