Back Pressure Characteristics for Turbine Channel of External-Parallel TBCC Inlet
For investigating the back pressure characteristics of turbine channel of an external-parallel turbine-based combined cycle (TBCC) inlet during the mode transition with the freestream air Mach number of 1.8, wind tunnel tests and numerical simulations are carried out. The results show that the critical back pressure of the turbine channel decreases linearly with the decrease of the open degree of splitter plate. The turbine channel has self-starting capacity when the open degree of the turbine channel is 100%. The total pressure recovery coefficient increases with the increase of back pressure when turbine channel is at supercritical and critical state. The mass capture ratio, total pressure recovery coefficient and outlet pressure ratio decrease obviously when turbine channel is at subcritical state. Results of the research would provide scheme reference and technology storage for TBCC propulsion evolution.
