So if one engine is lost on a twin engine aircraft (eg boeing 777) during take-off , the remaining 50% of thrust must be sufficient to meet the above criteria specific fuel consumption (ie sfc), defined as fuel flow/net thrust, is an important parameter reflecting the overall thermal (or fuel) efficiency of an. 1350000 thrust (kn) 69200 375300 mf (kg/s) 1079 2968 sfc (mg/n-s) 15600 7910 sp thrust (n-s/kg) 120100 278100 the computed value of the cruise thrust is found to be in close agreement with the thrust required by the boeing 777 aircraft with two ge90 engines which is around 65-70 kn per engine. No, there is no formula to calculate the air-fuel equivalence ratio from specific fuel consumption (sfc) to calculate the equivalence ratio, you need the air mass flow, and the fuel mass flow from this data, you can calculate the actual afr (air fuel ratio), and lookup the stoichiometric afr for your given fuel.

Supplementary aviation weather reporting station sbas satellite-based augmentation system sca southern control area scob scattered clouds or better sdf simplified directional facility se southeast sec seconds selcal selective call system sfc surface of the earth (either land or. Lect-3 • the propulsion efficiency is a measure of how well the propulsive device is being used for propelling the aircraft • it is different from the efficiency of energy bhaskar roy, prof a m pradeep, department of aerospace, iit bombay lect-3 specific fuel consumption f n m sfc= f x expressed in kg/n-hr or mg/n- sec. Would be about 20-40 nam/(1000 lb fuel) considering that it may carry three times the number of passengers and more cargo load as the in-flight airplane weight decreases due to fuel burn (fc), sar will increase as illustrated in figure 2 alternatively, sar can be defined as fc tas or ( )d sfc tas. Gross fuel flow (fuel mileage) can be given as kg/nm or nm/kg arrow optimum endurance: endurance is the time that the aircraft can remain airborne this depends on fuel flow (sfc x drag) thus optimum endurance is when sfc is lowest and drag is minimum sfc will be lowest with thrust around 90%.
Aviation weather center homepage provides comprehensive user-friendly aviation weather text products and graphics. Based fuel to biomass-based will help reduce emissions and minimize the energy crisis the present paper addresses the analysis of aircraft engine performance in terms of thrust, fuel flow and specific fuel consumption (sfc) at different mixing ratio percentages (20%, 40% 50%, 60% and 80%) of alternative biofuel blends. The aircraft consumes fuel at a constant rate per pound of jet thrust or per engine horsepower this rate is known as the specific fuel consumption (sfc), and this example highlights the thrust of a turbine aircraft the same type analysis applies to propeller driven aircraft 2 the drag coefficient varies as the square of the lift.
The ratio of the fuel mass flow of an aircraft engine to its output power, in specified units specific fuel consumption (abbreviated sfc or sfc) is a widely used measure of atmospheric engine performance for reciprocating engines it is usually given in us customary units of pound-mass per hour per horsepower [( lbm/h)/hp.

I found some stats for a few notable turboprop engines/aircraft below it's notable that the nk-12 came within 5% of the sfc of the napier nomad in the 1950s, but afaict no turboprops have bettered that sfc since engine (aircraft, year) specific fuel consumption (kg/kwh)power-to-mass ratio (kw/kg.
Asme turbo expo 2016: turbomachinery technical conference and exposition volume 1: aircraft engine fans and blowers marine seoul, south korea, june 13–17, 2016 cruise specific fuel consumption (sfc) of turbofan engines is a key metric for increasing airline profitability and for reducing co2 emissions. Home photos videos library events my account members renew membership club business forms and guidelines committee website welcome to the namadgi sports flyers club the namadgi sports flyers club ( nsfc) is a club for rc aero modellers located in a picturesque rural setting, close to the. Aircraft propulsion chapter 31 presents a generic method to calculate the basic thrust specific fuel consumption (sfc) of a jet engine for propulsion chapter 32 presents the theory to calculate fuel consumption due to shaft power off-takes which is based on the basic sfc of the engine 31 the engine's. Engine sfc considerations the get the best range or endurance we need to run the engine at its peak efficiency 1/sfc there are a number of factors which have a pronounced effect on efficiency, they are: map and rpm, mixture, ambient temperature, altitude and carburettor temperature and air filter.
Jetphotoscom is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 3 million screened photos online. Cfm international has opened paris with a shot across the bow of competitor pratt & whitney, claiming its leap-1a engine has up to 3% lower specific fuel consumption (sfc) than the rival pw1100g geared turbofan on the a320neo family “the leap will go into revenue service on the a320neo 1% better. Rate at which aircraft weight is reduced” ▫ define thrust specific fuel consumption (sfc or tsfc) as – f = mass of fuel burnt per unit of thrust per second – consistent units are kg/ns – but often given in terms of kg/nhr so don't forget to convert ▫ for thrust t and weight w the basic breguet equation is – a differential equation. There is an optimum altitude in reference to speed and thrust which increases as weight reduces altitude increase - maintaining a constant tas - reduction in fuel flow and sfc from sea level up to the optimum altitude for more information visit.
