Fundamentals of the Control of Gas-Turbine Power Plants for Aircraft, Part 3: Control of Jet Engines
"The basic principles of the control of TL engines are developed on the basis of a quantitative investigation of the behavior of these behavior under various operating conditions with particular consideration of the simplifications permissible in each case. Various possible means of control of jet engines are suggested and are illustrated by schematic designs" (p. 1).
Rocket Power Plants Based on Nitric Acid and their Specific Propulsive Weights
"Two fields are reserved for the application of rocket power plants. The first field is determined by the fact that the rocket power plant is the only type of power plant that can produce thrust without dependence upon environment. The second field is that in which the rocket power plant proves itself the most suitable as a high-power drive in free competition with other types of power plants" (p. 1).
