Ing. Campini projects

Hi,


the Campnin patent was called C.S.1,and here is also a 3-view to a developed
version of it,and I repeat posting some drawings for the designer from the book;

Schematic of Re 2005R with Campini turbine - not a proper jet engine. A prototype was meant to have been nearly complete by 1943 iirc

Schematic of Ca 183 propulsion system and cutaway of Re 2007

The image I posted before was from Illustrated London News 1940. I'm guessing that they heard of the first flight of a jet propelled aircraft (the CC.1) and had their artist put something together for print. There are a number of features prominent from Campini's patent in that drawing.

Reggiane 2007? I'm really not sure. Caproni defnitely ordered 2xJumo engines from Germany. Theres no issue with the swept wings, Italy having the world's only supersonic wind tunnels at Guidonia. It fits in well with the ideas proposed at the Aero conference at Volta in 1936.

Joe, for artists impressions of the Re 2007 have a search on google.

Excuse me. I want to make a kit of this Re 2005 R. Could someone indicate me where is air intake of jet engine on this profile?.

Thanks
Fran

The Re 2005 R dit not use a jet engine but a kind of motorjet as Red Admiral mentioned.
The air for the motorjet is compressed via the piston engine
and fed into the burner for additional thrust.
No need for an intake like a jet engine.
 
P.S. See also Justo's drawing in reply # 33 of this thread please...

Thank you very much! .

In the "other" Re 2005 R, there is really a jet engine. The air intake of jet engine is on the fuselage under the cabin, near the junction with the wing; isn´t it?.

Thanks again
Fran

I do not see a true turbojet. I see a motorjet. Note the drive shaft under the cockpit and the gear train leading up to the compressor shaft. The shaft appears to be driven from the forward engine's supercharger drive.
 
Not to derail the subject but in Pacopepe's reply #79 that piston engine looks suspiciously long. Is it a DB609 inverted V 16?
 
Drawing of "the other" Re 2005-R comes from the alireggiane.com website.
According to the info there, the engine should be a Isotta-Frachini "Gamma"..
No further details of the Marcello Sarracino project for the moment..
 
Hi,

here is a clearer view to CS.3 in details.

Yes Re2005R did not need extra air intake for jet engine. Only need air intake for piston engine drive compressor(two sets) which located behind the cockpit as you see. Air duct from piston engine drive compressor to front engine runs forward direction. Air duct to jet engine runs aft direction. I imagine that air intake is located near piston engine drive compressor both side of the fuselage to avoid ram air pressure drop through long air duct and weight increase by long duct. So air intake located side of the front engine in attached drawing is little strange for me.
Of course Re2005R need air duct from compressor to FIAT A20 engine and A20 engine exhaust nozzles in side view drawing,too.

Thanks to the informations about the RE 2005 R and the drawing reported by Skybolt, I'm trying to

scratch a 1/72 RE 2005 R model based on the axial hypothesis. I'm tracing a drawing . The fuselage is completely different from a RE 2005, just a resemblance. What is used from the RE 2005 are: wings and tail components ( even if modified for the new exaust ).
It's not clear to me if the two intakes for the additional propulsion can be located as I traced on the fuselage side, and which dimensions ? If you can help me, thanks in advance.
Ciao
Giovanni

Hmmm...We don't need air intake located side of the front engine. Fuselage side airintake shape is little strange to generate ram air pressure.
Proper fuselage side air intake shape is like this.

Hi!
Are these motorjet fighters?

Hi,

here is some Campini Projects,the M-wing shape was a future aircraft dream.

Hi! Campini CS3 side view large image.
I see two nose devices. One device is compressor. What is nose cone?
http://alternathistory.com/italyanskie-bumazhnye-proekty-proekt-vysotnogo-bombardirovshchika-kampini
Partial auto translation
"A characteristic feature of CS3 was the presence of a compressor powered by a central engine and who started his work at heights exceeding 4000 m. Compressor maintained constant pressure for the three main engines at altitudes between 5000 and 17000 meters; He also guaranteed the pressurization and sealing support cabin control.
Three-speed compressor was equipped with three rotors, two of which were taken outside air, sending a third rotor, who accompanied him to the inputs of the individual compressor motors.
With increasing height provided a significant increase in power, so at an altitude of 17000 m lateral engines developed would power about 1000 HP, passing it on the screws, while the Central engine would transmit 800 HP compressor, zarezerviruâ 200 HP screw balance.
Select only the compressor had the advantage of being allowed to use the normal engines that are in production, without requiring the preparation of a special engine with supercharged engines at high altitudes. In addition there were other advantages, including better performance than offered by large size compressors.
The use of radial engines to increase power instead of Isotta Fraschini Asso l. 121 would further increase the horizontal speed and climb rate.
Under the designation "rocket was proposed CS4 version with the three main engines, which included the same type Kampini, tested previously on the single-engine plane. In this version of speed increased because in addition to the power of the engine was also used power obtained from direct combustion of petrol in combustion chamber.
The official reaction to CS3/CS4 project was very cautious. DGCA, after carefully studying the report submitted by the engineer Kampini, expressed serious doubts about the veracity of the data project. Power absorbed by the compressor, its predecessor into account only to the extent necessary to supply three engines (i.e. without taking into account the need for cabin pressurization), when the alleged efficiency compressor was 0.6 810 HP vs 750 HP, proposed by engineer. The magnitude of compression does not exceed 3.5 values against 6, necessary to obtain the desired pressure, while the throughput of the compressor was fairly low, averaging 0.5 m ³/sec instead of almost 2.5 m ³/s needed to recharge three motors.
Considerable difficulties presented would be cooling engines due to the extreme rarity of air in the stratosphere. In addition, the screws of the side engines would not have been able to develop the same torque at 17000 m (where the air density is reduced to 1/5 of normal) at 5000 m as a result of the efficiency of the compressors to meet up to 13000-meter height, sharply decreased at high altitudes.
Total motor Group excluding damn jet propulsion was considerable constructive given the difficulties and required a high ratio of the compressor, and as a result, oversize dimensions of the compressor, which was not expected from the calculations of the designer. It was also noted that in calculating the amount of air is not directed into the cabin, in addition to high speed were not are average losses of leakage and losses due to enemy resistance (hit).
As far as reactive versions, it was emphasized the strong reduction in connection with the work range of the jets, whose thermal impact was very low.
Placing military load was considered extremely irrational and excessive in relation to constructive capabilities: payload for aircraft with similar characteristics was calculated at approximately 35% of the total weight, and thus the value of load 4000 kg seemed reassuringly proposed 7500 kg. Consequently, payload dramatically declined from 5000 to 1000 kg."

Hello folks, I'm Bubba, a new entry. I'm Italian, forgive my english...
Afer all your posts very little things remains to say. I'm quite astonished of your knowledge about. I only posted for two points:
1) Campini really draw a project of a turboprop, the "Campini 3500".
2) I don't know about RSI pilots and He.162, but is certain that 15 RSI pilots of 1° Gruppo Caccia went to Germany for training on Me.163B Komet; they began glider training at Sprottau (Silesia), but very bad weather and very close russians forced them to return to Italy in february 1945.
Bye
any info on the Campini 3500?
hi and sorry for answering to an old conversation
 
Pictures of the very impressive C.C.2. Aside from the terrific information that our friend Skybolt has placed here for us, this dual language book is well worth seeking out for further detail.

Currently the most ancient (almost) jet-powered of the World, since the previous He-178 was destroyed during wartime.
