The Bristol Beaufighter by Richard A Franks

By Richard A Franks

The Bristol style 156 Beaufighter is a multi-role airplane constructed throughout the moment global conflict through Bristol Aeroplane corporation within the united kingdom. It was once initially conceived as a heavy fighter version of the Bristol Beaufort bomber.

This leads to expressions for the equations of motion in integral (control volume) as well as differential form. 1 The rate of change of quantities following a fluid particle To describe what happens at a fixed volume or point in space we must inquire how the time rate of change for a particle can be described in a fixed coordinate system. For definiteness we take Cartesian coordinates x, y, z, and fluid velocity components ux , uy , and uz . Suppose that c is some property of the fluid and we visualize a field of values of c continuously distributed throughout space.

The flows addressed can be broadly characterized as follows: (1) There is often work or heat transfer. Further, this energy addition can vary between streamlines, with the result that there is no “uniform free stream”. Stagnation conditions therefore have a spatial (and sometimes a temporal) variation which must be captured in descriptions of the component behavior. (2) There are often large changes in direction and in velocity. For example, deflections of over 90◦ are common in fluid machinery, with no one obvious reference direction or velocity.

2) There are often large changes in direction and in velocity. For example, deflections of over 90◦ are common in fluid machinery, with no one obvious reference direction or velocity. Concepts of lift and drag, which are central to external aerodynamics, are thus much less useful than ideas of loss and flow deflection in describing internal flow component performance. Deflection of the non-uniform flows mentioned in (1) also creates (three-dimensional) motions normal to the mean flow direction which transport mass, momentum, and energy across ducts and channels.
