# Jet Engine Mass Flow Rate calculation

#### vincentryan

hi
how to find air mass flow rate in jet engine?
we are using thrust/Isp equation to find the mass flow rate for rocket equation. is that any formula available for finding the mass flow rate in jet engine

You could start with a simple thermodynamic heat balance to get a ballpark figure.

Do you have any information on the inlet and outlet conditions or intermediate conditions like the compressor outlet to the turbine inlet?

What is the thrust/Isp equation? Can you post it?

Thanks
Matt

For Rocket,
Total Mass Flow rate W = F (Thrust) / Isp (Specific Impulse)
Fuel Mass Flow Rate Wf = W/(r+1)
Oxygen Mass Flow Rate Wo = W-Wf

r = fuel - oxygen mixture ratio

you have asked information about the inlet and outlet conditions or intermediate conditions like the compressor outlet to the turbine inlet.
Take on example of GE 90 - 110B and GE 90 - 110B1 engine.

the fuel flow rate for jet engine is calculated by the following equations
mfuel = Fuel flow rate=mair(f/a)/(B+1)
f/a=Cpg(To5-To4)/HV

help to fine the air mass flow rate
