Description

"A single chart has been prepared that simplifies the calculation of the thermodynamic properties of air, various octene-air mixtures, and mixtures of those with their products of combustion at all temperatures below which chemical dissociation becomes unimportant. The chart is based on the use of 1 pound mol of mixture, and examples of its use are given in the form of the calculation of a turbocompressor power plant and a supercharged Otto engine cycle" (p. 1).

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
