Description

Introduction

An air-breathing jet engine, known as a ramjet, compresses incoming air instead of utilizing a rotary compressor by moving the engine forward. A ramjet cannot operate at zero airspeeds; hence it cannot be utilized to power an aircraft throughout all phases of flight. A ramjet-equipped aircraft needs additional propulsion to accelerate it to a speed where the ramjet can provide thrust.

Optimization Of Ramjet Engine Design And Combustion

In the combustor of a ramjet, combustion that generates thrust happens at a subsonic speed. The aircraft inlet must slow the air entering the engine for a vehicle operating at supersonic speeds. The propulsion system suffers performance losses due to shock waves in the inlet. Ramjet propulsion is relatively inefficient over Mach 5.

In this situation, fuel is crucial. When considering other beneficial factors, such as the fact that the air’s overall Temperature is high at high Mach numbers, hydrogen is especially advantageous due to its well-known relatively short inflammatory delay.

Project Description

In this simulation, an SR-71 Black Bird moving with a Mach number of 3.3 is considered. The point is to model the ramjet engine to capture what happens there and investigate the parameters.

In the next step, 3 crucial parameters are selected, and the solution is optimized using the DOE method in ANSYS Workbench software.

  • Ramjet CFD Simulation

As mentioned above, the first step is to simulate the engine of the SR-71 Black Bird, which is a ramjet engine without any moving object inside. The jet is moving with a Mach number of 3.3. There is an injection slot inside the chamber at a distance of 70 cm from the chamber inlet. The fuel, which is hydrogen, is injected into the engine with a mass flow rate ratio of 1 to 50 relevant to the air. Notably, the injection angle is 0 degrees, meaning the fuel is injected perpendicular to the airflow.

The model of the ramjet engine and the solution results are visible in the following figures, considering different significant parameters for us.

  • Optimization

In order to optimize the device performance and to get the maximum use of fuel and consequently the highest thrust number, the Design of Experiment study is carried out on the solution. 3 parameters that affect the results drastically are chosen to examine the effects of their changes. The parameters are as follows:

  1. Fuel mass Flow rate
  2. Injection angle
  3. The distance of the injection slot from the engine inlet

In the first simulation discussed above, parameters 1, 2 and 3 are 0.17 kg/s and 60 cm, respectively.

The optimization case has studied parameters 1 to 3 in the following range:

  1. 138 kg/s – 0.21 kg/s
  2. (-45) – (45) Degrees (Negative in opposite and positive in the direction of the airflow)
  3. 50 cm – 70 cm

Finally, 3D plots of the parameters and their effect on the thrust of the ramjet are achieved.

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the optimization process, the Design of Experiments (DOE) method is utilized to identify optimal parameters. This involves creating a matrix of simulations that systematically vary the crucial parameters: the fuel mass flow rate, the injection angle, and the distance of the injection slot from the engine inlet. By exploring the effects of these variables, the optimizer can elucidate their impacts on thrust generation. The software calculates the performance metrics for each simulation and uses these results to determine the configuration that yields the highest thrust, indicating the optimal combination of fuel flow rate and injection angle.

      Thanks for your compliment! In regards to varying Mach numbers, higher velocities generally lead to stronger shockwaves in the air inlet which can affect engine efficiency. As the vehicle goes supersonic, inlet design to slow down air becomes crucial. Beyond Mach 5, ramjet efficiency decreases and different propulsion methods may be needed. In our simulations, we focus on a specific Mach number of 3.3 to tailor and optimize engine performance parameters such as fuel mass flow rate, and injection angle, specific to SR-71 flight conditions.

      Hydrogen is an excellent choice for high-speed supersonic flights for several reasons. It has a high specific energy per unit mass, which enables a greater energy yield compared to traditional jet fuels.

    I learned a lot from the SR-71 Black Bird ramjet engine simulation optimization. I’m interested to know how changing the fuel mass flow rate impacts the combustion and thrust relative to the other parameters.

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the optimization process for the SR-71 Black Bird ramjet engine simulation, varying the fuel mass flow rate affects the combustion efficiency and consequently the thrust. A higher fuel mass flow rate provides more reactant in the combustion process, which can increase the thrust if the mixing and burning are optimal. Conversely, too high a fuel mass flow can also lead to incomplete combustion if the oxygen availability is insufficient, which may reduce efficiency. Its impact is analyzed alongside other variables like the injection angle and the distance of the injection slot from the engine inlet, to optimize the engine performance for the highest possible thrust. The balance between fuel supply and efficient combustion is crucial, and the specified ranges of fuel mass flow rate are systematically studied to find the setup yielding the best propulsion results.

Could you clarify how the transition from subsonic to supersonic combustion is treated in the simulation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the simulation, the transition from subsonic to supersonic combustion is addressed by progressively decelerating the incoming airspeed through the aircraft inlet, which creates a series of shock waves. These shock waves are simulated and well-managed within the combustion chamber to guarantee that the combustion process at the given mach number continues at subsonic speeds which indicates successful management of flow dynamics. Proper setup of boundary conditions and numerical methods ensure the accurate capturing of such complex flow transitions within the ramjet engine simulation.

    I’m interested in the impact that the fuel mass flow rate has on the performance of the ramjet engine. How does varying this parameter influence the thrust produced by the engine?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The fuel mass flow rate directly affects the combustion efficiency and, consequently, the thrust produced by the ramjet engine. By adjusting the fuel mass flow rate, you essentially control the amount of energy that can be released through the combustion process. A higher mass flow rate allows for more fuel to be combusted and more thrust to be generated, up to the point where the fuel-air mixture remains optimal. If the mass flow rate exceeds the capacity for efficient mixing and combustion, it could lead to fuel-rich areas that don’t contribute to thrust production and instead may cool the engine and reduce efficiency. Hence, there is an optimized range for the fuel mass flow rate to produce the highest thrust.

      For this simulation, the initial computational mesh was designed to be finer around regions with expected high gradients, such as the injection slots and combustion zones. Adaptive mesh refinement techniques were likely employed during the simulation to dynamically refine the grid in response to evolving flow features, improving the accuracy of the results in these critical areas.

      Thank you for your positive feedback! The optimized parameters are interconnected, affecting the combustion efficiency and total thrust output of the ramjet engine. Variations in the fuel mass flow rate, the angle of fuel injection, and the position of the injection slot relative to the engine inlet each have a significant impact on how the fuel mixes with the incoming airflow, the completeness of combustion, and the distribution of temperature and pressure within the combustion chamber. Adjusting these parameters through the Design of Experiment (DOE) method allows for fine-tuning to achieve the best balance between fuel consumption and engine thrust, ultimately enhancing performance in a ramjet-powered aircraft like the SR-71 Blackbird. Adjusting the injection angle and slot distance optimizes the interaction between the introduced fuel and the shock waves present in supersonic airflow, which is critical for maximizing thrust and minimizing drag.

    I found the section about optimization particularly interesting. Could you elaborate on how the DOE method aids in enhancing the thrust of the ramjet engine used in the SR-71 Blackbird simulation?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In optimizing the thrust of the ramjet engine, the Design of Experiment (DOE) method systematically changes and analyzes three critical parameters: the fuel mass flow rate, injection angle, and distance of the injection slot from the engine inlet. By adjusting these parameters across a predefined range and conducting multiple simulation runs, DOE identifies how each affects engine performance. This method uncovers the precise combinations that maximize thrust, leading to a more efficient and powerful engine. Local sensitivity analysis further breaks down the impact of each parameter on thrust, guiding future design improvements.
