Type 1 problem (not choked): an adiabatic flow of air with a given mass flow rate of
2.1 kg/s takes place in a pipe with given diameter D = 100 mm, length L = 4.79 m
and average friction factor f = 0.024. The inlet conditions are: static pressure 180
kPa and static temperature 50oC. Determine the pressure and temperature at the
end of the pipe.
NB: the mass flow rate is lower than before and everything else kept the same, so
this flow is not choked at the pipe exit. We need to use a fictitious choking
location beyond the pipe exit in the calculation process

Type 1 problem (not choked): an adiabatic flow of air with a given mass flow rate of
2.1 kg/s takes place in a pipe with given diameter D = 100 mm, length L = 4.79 m
and average friction factor f = 0.024. The inlet conditions are: static pressure 180
kPa and static temperature 50oC. Determine the pressure and temperature at the
end of the pipe.
Solution steps:
Ma1 = m RT1 / k AP1
1. Use the first mass flow function to find Ma1 (= 0.382)
2. Read off chart FANNO-2 at Ma1 (P1/P* = 2.83) and find P* (= 63.6 kPa)
3. On chart FANNO-1, find fL*/D for Ma1 (fL*/D = 2.66) and calculate L* (= 11.08 m)
4. Calculate L2 = L* - L (= 6.29 m) find fL2/D (= 1.51) and use in chart FANNO-1 to
find (real) pipe exit Mach no. Ma2 (= 0.455)
5. Read off chart FANNO-2 at Ma2 to find P2/P* (= 2.36), use choking pressure P* to
calculate P2 (= 150.1 kPa)
6. Repeat steps 2. and 5. using chart FANNO2 for T/T* (Ma1 = 0.382, T1/T* =
1.166), then find T* (= 277 K = 4oC), (Ma2 = 0.456, T2/T* = 1.152) and T2 (= 319 K
= 42oC).

Type 2 problem (choked): an adiabatic flow of air with a given static pressure ratio
between inlet and exit of 2.18 takes place in a pipe with given diameter of 100 mm
and average friction factor f = 0.024. The inlet conditions are: static pressure 180
kPa and static temperature 50oC. What is the maximum pipe length for which choking
will not occur. Determine the mass flow rate through the pipe.

## Solution steps are reverse of previous example:

1.Find Ma1 for choked flow at P1/P* = 2.18 on chart FANNO-2 (Ma1 = 0.49)
2.On chart FANNO-1, find fL*/D for choked flow at Ma1 = 0.49 (fL*/D = 1.15)
3.Calculate L*
4.Re-arrange first mass flow function, evaluate at Ma1 = 0.49 to calculate mass

Type 3 problem (choked): an adiabatic flow of air is just choked at a given static
pressure ratio between inlet and exit of 2.18 and a given mass flow rate of 2.7
kg/s in a pipe with average friction factor f = 0.024. The inlet conditions are: static
pressure 180 kPa and static temperature 50oC. Determine the pipe diameter
required and find the maximum pipe length for which choking will not occur.
Solution steps use steps from previous examples in different order:
1.Find Ma1 for choked flow at P1/P* = 2.18 on chart FANNO-2 (Ma1 = 0.49)
2.Substitute mass flow rate, inlet pressure and temperature and Mach number
into first mass flow function

## 3.Find pipe cross-sectional area A and hence pipe diameter

4.On chart FANNO-1, find fL*/D for choked flow at Ma1 = 0.49 (fL*/D = 1.15)
5.Calculate L*

Self study - 5
Type 2 problem (not choked): an adiabatic flow of air with a given pressure ratio
P1/P2 = 1.2 takes place in a pipe with given diameter D = 100 mm, length L = 4.79 m
and average friction factor f = 0.024. The inlet conditions are: static pressure 180
kPa and static temperature 50oC. Determine the mass flow rate through the pipe.
Solution is iterative, because flow is not choked and Ma1 and p* are both unknown:
1.Calculate fL/D (= 1.15) and find Ma1 (= 0.49) on chart FANNO1 for choked end of
pipe; also find P1/P* (= 2.18) from chart FANNO-2 reading off at Ma1 = 0.49
2.Guess Ma1 < 0.49, read off chart FANNO-2 at Ma1 to find P1/(P)* and (P)*
3.On chart FANNO-1, find fL*/D for Ma1 and calculate new L*
4.Calculate L2 = L*-L (= 6.29 m) find fL2/D, use in chart FANNO1 find pipe exit Mach
no. Ma2
5.Read off chart FANNO-2 at Ma2 to find P2/P*, use (P)* to calculate P2
6.Calculate P1/P2 and compare with target P1/P2 = 1.2 and 2.18. If P1/P2 > 1.2
reduce Ma1, if P1/P2 < 1.2 increase Ma1, and repeat steps 2.-6.
7.When Ma1 has been found that makes P1/P2 sufficiently close to 1.2, use this value
of Ma1 to calculate mass flow rate with
m = AP k /( RT ) Ma

Type 3 problem (not choked): an adiabatic flow of air has a given static pressure
ratio between inlet and exit of P1/P2 = 1.2 and a given mass flow rate of 2.1 kg/s;
the flow takes in a pipe with a length of L = 4.79 m and average friction factor f =
0.024. The inlet conditions are: static pressure 180 kPa and static temperature 50oC.
Determine the pipe diameter required.
Solution steps:
1.Assume choked exit P1/P* = P1/P2 = 1.2; find Ma1 on chart FANNO-2 (Ma1 = 0.85)
2.Guess Ma1 < 0.85, e.g. Ma1 = 0.5; find D from first mass flow function (= 0.087 m)

A = m RT1 / k P1Ma1

3.On chart FANNO-1, find fL*/D for Ma1 (fL*/D = 1.07) and calculate
L* = 1.07D/f = 3.88 m, next calculate L* - L (= -0.91 m).
4.If L*-L < 0 reduce guessed Ma1 further (e.g. Ma1 = 0.4) and repeat 2.-3. until L*-L > 0
(for Ma1 = 0.4, D = 0.098 m, fL*/D = 2.31, L* = 9.40 m, L*-L = 4.61 m > 0)
5.On chart FANNO-2 find P1/P* for Ma1 = 0.4 (P1/P* = 2.70, to be used later)

5.Calculate f(L*-L)/D (= 1.13); use in chart FANNO-1 find pipe exit Mach no. Ma2 =

6.On chart FANNO-2 find P1/P* for Ma2 = 0.495 (P2/P* = 2.15)
7.Calculate P1/P2 = (P1/P*)/(P2/P*) = 2.70/2.15 = 1.26
8.If P1/P2 > 1.2 reduce guessed Ma1; if P1/P2 < 1.2 increase guessed Ma1 and repeat
steps 4.-7.
9.Next cycle: guess Ma1 = 0.3, D = 0.113 m (from mass flow function), P1/P* = 3.62
(chart FANNO-2), fL*/D = 5.30 (chart FANNO-1), L* = 24.95 m, L*-L = 20.16 m, f(L*L)/D = 4.28; Ma2 = 0.325 (chart FANNO-1), P2/P* = 3.33 (chart FANNO-2); P1/P2 =
3.62/3.33 = 1.09 increase Ma1 (closer to 0.4, e.g.Ma1 = 0.37)
10.If P1/P2 is sufficiently close to target P1/P2 = 1.2, accept the latest diameter D as the
correct solution.

## Self study closing remarks

The examples were all based on inlet conditions specified as static pressure and
static temperature. Consequently, the calculations use the first mass flow function:

## m RT1 AP1 = k Ma1

Inlet conditions can also be specified as static pressure and stagnation
temperature. In these cases we need to use the mass flow function q:

m RT01
k 1

q=

## Inlet conditions can also be specified as stagnation pressure and stagnation

temperature. In these cases we use the mass flow function Q:

Relationship between mass flow rate and Mach number is more complex &
calculations steps may need isentropic relations for T0/T, P0/P to obtain static
pressure and temperature from stagnation pressure and temperature
