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

47

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?

          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) is reasoning / hinting, and not whether the Russians “straddled” 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.

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

              Part of the energy in the RD is lost with the escape "just like that" of free radicals, is not converted into thrust / momentum
              Using the effect of free radicals is a good prospect in RD

        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 runway is not the Ministry of Defense, but the aircraft industry - this is the Flight Test Institute with the Flight Development Bases of the design bureaus. In legal terms, this is an "experimental aviation airfield", not a "state aviation airfield". Therefore, in LII you can see a variety of aircraft side by side.

      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 powdering your mind. Your answer is something like: "It is, and of course, it is legal, it should be, but okay. And if that happens - here you are." The main thing is that no one understands anything and considers you "very smart".

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. It's just that the creators of the program under the nickname "Gridasov" tried to give "humanity" to their brainchild. It turned out byaka, as always. For 5 years, there is not a single comment, where even the specifics would have slipped - he was offended, called, called by name, did a foolish thing and "forgot". In a word, there is no such person "Gridasov". And here is the program that has been fooling us for five years now.

      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?
