SECTION-A
(a) What are the advantages of multi-stage compression?
(b) State at least four applications of compressed air.
(c) List the positive displacement type rotary compressors.
(d) Write the steady flow energy equation & explain various terms?
(e) Explain the terms pre-whirl & slip factor.
(f) Explain the term surging used in centrifugal compressors.
(g) What is stalling in case of axial flow compressor?
(h) List the different components of axial flow compressor.
(i) What is semi-closed gas turbine ?
(j) Name the two solid propellants used in rockets.

SECTION-B
2. Show that the optimum intermediate pressure of a two-stage compressor
for minimum work is the geometric mean of the suction & discharge
pressures.
3. Define degree of reaction as applied to axial flow compressor and show
that the blades are symmetrical for 50% reaction.
4. Explain the function of impeller and diffuser in the centrifugal compressor.
5. Discuss the methods of improving the work ratio, specific, output & cycle
thermal efficiency by employing multi-stage system gas turbines with
intercooling and reheating.
other propulsion system.

SECTION-C
7. A single cylinder double acting reciprocating compressor compresses
3 kg/min of air. From 1 bar, 300 k to 6 bar. The clearance volume is
such that the maximum pressure at the end of compression cannot exceed
15 bar. Calculate the power input, the volumetric efficiency & the cylinder
dimensions, when the compressor runs at 300 r.p.m. The index of compression
& expansion is equal to 1.3 & stroke/bore ratio is 1.5.

8. In an oil gas turbine installation, ambient pressure is 1 bar & 300 K &
compressed to a pressure of 4 bar. The oil with a calorific value of
42000 KJ/kg is burnt in the combustion chamber to raise the temperature
of air to 550°C. If the air flows at the rate of 1.2 kg/s; Find the net
power of the installation. Also find air fuel ratio. Take Cp=1.05 KJ/kg-K.

9. (a) Explain the working difference between propeller-jet, turbo-jet and
turbo-prop.

(b) Explain the advantages of dual turbine system.
