China has just announced the creation of an engine capable of reaching 11,000 km/h. When will they have practical applications?
The aviation industry is growing rapidly. China has undoubtedly become one of the main architects of innovation in the industry, and the best proof of this is the invention of an engine that will allow an airplane to reach speeds of 11,000 km/h. To understand the incredible benefits this supersonic transport vehicle will have, it is enough to explain: speed of sound is reached at 1,235,5 km/h.
Various technologies have been observed in the last few years aimed at reviving the features of the historic Concorde. As a result of an accident that occurred in the first years of the 21st century, his departure from aviation was determined by many factors. Among them, it is worth noting the very high fuel consumption and, of course, the shortfall of the few existing units for companies. After more than 20 years, still no successor. Will it come from China and its great new engine?
Let’s see what are the most prominent features of the new block created by the Asian giant? Fly at speeds of up to 11,000 km/h. If he can take the stage one day, he can travel the world in a few hours. Even so, it is highly likely that such travel by commercial plane could never be undertaken, for purely physical reasons.
China surprised everyone by announcing its 11,000 km/h engine
by portal South China Morning PostAbout world’s first hypersonic blast wave engine. It can reach Mach 9, that is, 11,113.2 km / h. This is confirmed by the introduction of its incredible power into a special wind tunnel. Now, where is the main difference from other conventional engines? Among the reasons explaining these numbers, RP-3 fuel should be especially mentioned.
This type of technology is compatible with beacon chambers up to 10 times longer than a hydrogen-only engine. In this sense, we are actually dealing with an engine that should have direct effects on the design of the aircraft. The construction of this technology, for now, will only have scientific applications. In fact, it is intended to serve as a model for creating more commercially attractive options. After all, installing it on an aircraft implies a large number of practical modifications.
Everything seems to indicate the cost push this technology to predicted numbers will be very high. So we’ll have to wait a little longer to understand what future applications this innovation might have and of course when we can see results from this research applied to a particular industry. aircraft type Overture They would enjoy traditional mechanics adapted to perform more, but the records this alternative would achieve would not be achieved.
