The parameter distribution of internal flow field calculated by single-step chemical reaction is used as the inlet boundary condition, and the plume afterburning reaction is also described by single-step global chemical reaction; the distributions of temperature, velocity, and reaction rate in the exhaust plume flow field on the different distance cross sections of the axial line and the symmetrical plane are shown in Figures 9(a), 9(b), and 9(c).
The noise and vibration levels of a J58 afterburning engine under test were enormous.

Afterburning is not new, but Bosman attributed increased heat-exchange efficieny to Goss advanced technology, which reduces the amount of gas needed solvent fumes emitted.
Formation of hardbound (sintered) ash deposits took place at the exit region of the FB reactor mainly due to the excess air inlet and afterburning of particles at a temperature rising up to 1000 [degrees]C at BB conditions.
The two-man jets are drawn from RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland and Marham, Norfolk, and are capable of 1,452mph - around twice the speed of sound - powered by two Rolls-Royce afterburning turbofan engines.

The order includes a Pastomat reelstand and KBA Patras M reel-handling system, jaw folder with two turner bars and two formers, cut-off register controls, heatset dryer with integrated afterburning and various options, among them stitching, perforating or scoring and gluing ancillaries, and delivery as a broadsheet, a tabloid or with a quarterfold.
He achieved a speed of 1,227km/h (763mph) courtesy of two afterburning Rolls Royce Spey engines.
Perhaps corporate interest was absorbed in other efforts of commercial turbofan development, afterburning turbofan development (for the F-111), and a Mach 3+ turbojet engine development (for the SR-71).
The presence of 6.50-1.35 vol.% of combustible compounds and a surplus of sensible heat in the gas make it possible to include a waste-heat boiler into the complex of UTT-3000 retort, including afterburning of stack gas, prior to introducing the gases into AFD.
