The following text was automatically extracted from the image on this page using optical character recognition software:
NACA RM E53E21
of 33.5 inches and speed of 8000 rpm. The results obtained, however, can
be generalized to a large extent and should be useful to anyone designing
a turbojet engine that will incorporate an air-cooled turbine rotor. In
the designs presented herein, it is acknowledged that prior library
reviews of the many German designs, such as those presented in reference 9,
may have left their influence.
The following symbols are used in this report:
