2 Speed of sound

The speed of sound is an important thing in aerodynamics. A formula to calculate it can be derived.

Therefore the continuity equation is used on a sound wave traveling through a tube with constant area:

Aa = ( +d)A(a + da) a =

da

d

Assuming an isentropic ow, it is allowed to ll in the speed of sound in the Euler equation, which gives

dp = a da. Combining this with the previous equation gives:

a =

dp

d

(2.1)

This is not a very easy formula to work with though. But by using the isentropic ow relations, it can

be derived that

dp

d

=

p

, and therefore:

a =

_

(2.2)

Using the equation of state, this can be transformed to:

a =

_

RT (2.3)

So the speed of sound only depends on the temperature. But when the speed of sound is known, also the

Mach number can be calculated:

M =

V

a

(2.4)

There are three important regions of Mach numbers:

1

1. M < 1: Subsonic ow

2. M = 1: Sonic ow

3. M > 1: Supersonic ow

These regions can be split up into more detailed, but less important regions, as can be seen in table 1.

Mach number: M < 0.3 0.3 < M < 1 M = 1 M 1 1 < M < 5 5 < M

Name: Low subsonic High subsonic Sonic Transonic Supersonic Hypersonic

Table 1: Mach regions and corresponding names.

3 Isentropic ow relations including Mach number

Let point 0 be the stagnation point, and let point 1 be a point in the undisturbed ow. The stagnation

speed V

0

is 0. So p

0

is equal to the total pressure in the ow. The energy equation implies that:

It is known that R = c

p

and =

cp

. From that it can be derived that:

Combining these two equations results in:

T

RT

It is also known that a

2

= RT

and M

. Using that data, the previous formula can be transformed

to:

T

0

T

= 1 +

M

(3.1)

And by using the isentropic ow relations, also the following can be deduced:

(3.3)

But do keep in mind that p

0

and

0

are the pressure and density, respectively, at the stagnation point

(because V

0

= 0).

4 Calculating ight velocity

Calculating ight velocity for low subsonic ows is not dicult, because incompressibility can be assumed.

Therefore only the formula for the ight velocity at high subsonic speeds is shown. The equations derived

in the previous paragraph can be used to nd those formulas. But to do that, the Mach number should

rst be isolated:

M

=

p

p

And using equation 2.4, the following relation is evident:

V

=

2a

_

(4.1)

However, it is not easy to measure a pressure ratio

p0

p1

. Most measuring devices measure a pressure

dierence p

0

p

1

instead. Therefore the previous equation can be transformed.

V

2

2a

_

p

0

p

p

+ 1

This formula still has a pressure value p

1

(which is not a pressure dierence), and the speed of sound

(which depends on T

1

, the static temperature in the air around the airplane). Both are rather dicult

to measure accurately. Therefore the calibrated airspeed V

cal

is introduced, and dened as follows:

5 Supersonic wind tunnels

From the continuity equation, the following can be derived:

AV = c lnAV = ln + lnA + lnV = lnc

d

+

dA

A

+

dV

V

= 0

Where c is any constant mass ow. First lling in Eulers equation =

dp

V dV

and then lling in equation

2.1 results in the following:

0 =

d V dV

dp

dA

A

dV

A nal transformation results in the so-called area-velocity relation:

dA

A

=

_

M

1

_

dV

V

(5.1)

This formula has interesting implications. When looking at the three previously discussed Mach number

regions, the following three phenomena can occur:

1. Subsonic ows (M < 1): For the velocity to increase, the area must decrease (and vice-versa).

2. Sonic ows (M = 1): This is a rather strange case, because it implies

dA

A

to be 0. Therefore this

only occurs in the tunnel where the cross-sectional area is minimal (this point is called the throat

of the tunnel).

3. Supersonic ows (M > 1): For the velocity to increase, the area must increase (and vice-versa).
