Thus, if the engine is sized for takeoff and has its design point at this condition, the engine will be too large at cruise. The vehicle performance will be penalized at cruise for the poor off-design point operation of the engine components and for the larger weight of the engine. Similar problems arise when supersonic cruise vehicles are considered. The afterburning gas turbine cycle was an early attempt to avoid some of these problems. Afterburners or augmentation devices were first added to aircraft gas turbine engines to increase their thrust during takeoff or brief periods of acceleration and supersonic flight.
The force applied to the surface of the stream tube in the direction of the flow (see Fig. 4) will be proportional to the dynamic pressure of the gas poov2/2 and some cross-sectional area, say ~ x h (where is an average width and h the penetration distance). This force must be balanced by the momentum flux of the injectant stream with mass flux rhj. // ~ ~ [ / . ,.. y // ///0) Fig. '.
