    Interview Short Question Answers on Aircraft Cooling

     Interview Short Interview Question Answers on Aircraft Cooling  Why Is The Necessity of Aircraft cooling? In an aircraft, cooling systems are required to keep the cabin temperatures at a comfortable level. Even though the outside temperatures are very low at high altitudes, still cooling of cabin is required due to: (i)  Large internal heat generation […]

    Refrigeration-Air-Interview Short Question Answers

    Refrigeration-Air-Interview Short Question Answers Air refrigeration is used in all the air crafts. Its COP is less than 1 because of sensible cooling. Air is a safe refrigerant and requires less equipment. Q. Compare open cycle and closed cycle air Refrigeration systems. Why closed cycle is called a dense system?  OPEN CYCLE: The conditioned air […]

    Refrigeration- vapor vs air

    Refrigeration- vapor vs air Air refrigeration is based on bell Coleman Cycle and is used in all the air crafts. It causes cooling by sensible effect.Though it has a low COP but certain amount of power is saved in carrying only (1/10)th of refrigeration equipment load as compared to that in vapor compression refrigeration. Air […]

    Refrigeration-Air and Vapor-Short Interview Question Answers Q. What is Bell Coleman Cycle or Reversed Brayton Cycle or Reversed Joule Cycle or Gas Refrigeration Cycle?  It is a cycle which consists of two isen-tropic processes and two isobaric processes. Since in this cycle the working substance is air (OR gas) work of expansion is recovered in […]

    Refrigeration-Aircraft-Interview Short Question Answers

    Refrigeration-Aircraft-Interview Short Question Answers  Q.  WHY IS AIR USED AS REFRIGERANT IN AIRCRAFT’S?  (i) Air is cheap, safe, non-toxic, non corrosive, inert and non-flammable. Leakage of air is not a problem (ii). Cold air from the turbine can directly be sent to cabin for cooling. Thus it eliminates the low temperature heat exchanger (cooler ) in […]

     Refrigeration-Air Cycles-Open and Closed  TWO WAYS OF OPERATING OF BELL COLEMAN CYCLE (i) Open air refrigeration cycle: When cooled air from the turbine enters the cabin and comes in physical contact with the occupants. It is not much in use because of moisture added to air in the cabin. (ii) Closed air refrigeration cycle OR dense cycle: When cooled […]
