The Aviationist became interested in the afterburner on Tu-22M3 with NK-25 engines


The Aviationist portal commented on the video of starting the NK-25 engines on the Russian long-range bomber Tu-22M3, finding it curious. The tests took place in Zhukovsky near Moscow, on the territory of the Flight Research Institute named after M.M. Gromov, and the video itself was published on December 22.


This video portal considers it extremely remarkable for several reasons. The main thing is that here for the first time such a detailed detailing of the engine sequence is shown and, in particular, the operation of its afterburner is displayed. The Aviationist indicates that a blue flame is observed on the recording, indicating complete combustion of the fuel. On western aircraft, the flame is usually orange.

The Aviationist also emphasized the fact that the Tu-22M3 unexpectedly held fast afterburner after take-off, which also cannot be called ordinary practice.

We don’t know what task was performed or what test this Tu-22M3 passed, but it is obvious that it took longer afterburner than usual

- noted in the text.

At present, according to open sources, the Russian Air Forces are armed with more than sixty Tu-22M of various modifications.

    The take-off video in the evening is very beautiful. And the plane itself is elegant, of course.
    And about the long and the furious is really interesting. So will he eat all the fuel on take-off, or not?

      This is also the subtleties of translation, you can not focus on this. We will admire the handsome Tu-22M3

        no, that's right
        Third, it's pretty unusual for an aircraft (especially for a strategic bomber) to keep afterburner so long after taking off: unless it is a fighter jet in QRA (Quick Reaction Alert), scrambled to intercept an unknown or “renegade” traffic, once the jet has reached a safe altitude and speed seconds after taking to the air, the pilot usually reduces the throttles as reheat is no longer needed, reducing thrust and fuel consumption.


        Thirdly, for an airplane (especially for a strategic bomber) it’s rather unusual to hold the afterburner for a long time after take-off: unless it’s fighters / RAF Typhoons / from QRA (quick reaction forces) picked up for interception, as they had in London to intercept an unknown La (N725SH, former El Al B767 4X-EAN), as a rule, after reaching a safe altitude and speed within a few seconds after takeoff, the pilot reduces traction (throttles switches to non-forced mode), less traction and fuel consumption.

        In general, he (David Cenciotti) argues / hints, and not whether the Russians “saddled” the energy of the molecular radicals CH and C2, which emit most of their light in the blue region of the visible spectrum ...

        The blue color is determined by the characteristic electromagnetic radiation of the cleavage of the CH bond, the formation of C and H radicals, and recombination with O radicals to form CO2 and H2O.

        vs

        Orange is a characteristic blackbody radiation wavelength of about 1500K, ~ 1200 degrees Celsius

            Part of the energy in the RD is lost with the release of “just like that” free radicals, is not converted into traction / momentum
            Using the effect of free radicals is a good prospect in RD

      I remember standing in the outfit in the fleet, and watching the flights! The strip about six hundred meters from our unit began. Climb up on the box and sit smoking and dangling legs)))) The spectacle at sunset is breathtaking! Not to mention the sounds! Only then we had 22M2 in the division.

      Well, it’s written that they experienced something that is unknown. Perhaps he had such a task longer on afterburner before takeoff, during takeoff and for some time after takeoff, and then immediately landing?

    Stairs of insufficient length, technicians have to stretch, which is not great. another time it’s not accurate enough to set the staircase to stretch, slip and, in the best case, an injury, maybe a fatal outcome as it falls in general.
    Again, the larger staircase is simply more stable, and contributes to a more relaxed, not intense work.

        In Zhukovsky, the strip is not the Ministry of Defense, but the aviation industry - this is the Flight Testing Institute with flight development centers of design bureaus. Speaking in legal terms, this is an “experimental aerodrome” and not a “state aviation aerodrome”. Therefore, in the LII you can see nearby a variety of aircraft.

    Only a fool does not see enormous heat dissipation. There is no need to speak of a further increase in the energy density, so to speak, of the rejection of the masses. Even if the spectral color in the combustion chamber is brought to a critical and it is clear which one, it will be impossible to reproduce such a material in the atmosphere so that it can withstand such temperatures. This is a dead end road engine

      It's cool for dusting brains. Your answer is something like: "It is, of course, it is legal, it would be necessary, but okay. But if this happened, here you are." The main thing is that no one understands anything and considers you "very smart".

        I heard you! But firstly, the conversation is not about who is dumber and who is smarter. I'm generally aloof. And secondly, I just built a mat model of the process in a modern turbine and within the framework of reasonable criteria to which we all strive. But more than that, we are talking about design solutions that fundamentally change the operation of the engine. In general, judging by your conclusions and discussions, there can be no discussion. All happy and okay. But I also have the right to my opinion.

            No, not about that. Just the creators of the program under the nickname "Gridasov" tried to give "humanity" to their offspring. It turned out byaka, as always. For 5 years there has not been a single comment where at least the specifics would slip-offended, called, called by name, stupid and "forgot." In a word, there is no such person "Gridasov". But the program, which for five years we have been fooled.

    First grader question. Not kerosene is interesting, but the operating time in this mode. Is this good or bad? For an engine that is not afraid to work in this mode, good. But what is this for? Or is it just the norm for our airplane that others are not used to?

    Maybe he earned a prize with his report? Times are different. It is unlikely that you would have the very opportunity to take a pipe on the field. Specialists would show you Kuzkin’s mother. And if they had known about the photographic equipment in the pipe, you would not have returned home from the assignment.
