36) also applies with shock waves present. 1, page 56). For more details on shock waves the reader is encouraged to consult Ref. 1. 5. Static pressure, p .. 9), to a point I (located far away from the pilot tube) and to a point 2 (located at the inlet of the pitot tube) yields: + P I. y2 -_ P2 -_ P, -(! 37) where: p, is the pressure at the stagnation point (zero speed). This pressure is also called the stagnation pressure or the total pressure. 38) where: q is defined as the dynamic pressure. 38) is replaced hy the standard sealevel value.

A more accurate calculation of the density altitude can be done as follows. 875xlO 6 I - hdensity = 16,883 ft This result is close to the 17,000 ftinterpolated from Table Al (Appendix A). 875xlO -6xhtemperature From this it is found that: htcmpcraturc - 6,730 ft. Note the large difference between temperature and density altitudes in this example. During flight tests, when measurements are normally conducted under non-standard atmospheric conditions, engine performance data and airplane performance data are all transformed to what these data wonld have been under standard atmospheric conditions.

Appendix A contains standard atmospheric characteristics in English and Metric units .. Appendix B contains information on the Advanced Aircraft Design and Analysis software. ~ CHAPTER 1: THE ATMOSPHERE The performance characteristics of airplanes and engines depend on the properties of the atmosphere in which they operate. In this chapter those properties of the atmosphere which are important to the determination of airplane and engine peIionnance are presented. Applications to various airplane and engine peIionnance scenarios are given.
