Fuel Flowrates observed?


Recommended Posts

High all, I'm running some heat calculations and need some real world numbers.


Please let me know what fuel flow numbers you've observed either in max climb or fast cruise, and also what your best HP estimate is


I'll be running fuel flow numbers through a simulator to determine the overall heat balance.


Thanks in advance,

10 gph? 16 gph? any ideas at all?



My approach is to do an overall heat balance based on fuel flow and a ratio of air. I combust the fuel, then remove energy (power) for the engine load, then I cool the exhaust gasses to ~1450 F. The heat duty required for this cooling should be close to the actual duty required from both cooling systems.
