Report discussing the cooling characteristics of a modified 14-cylinder double-row radial air-cooled engine installed in a four-engine airplane at a pressure altitude of 7000 feet. Testing of the variable charge-air flow, variable cooling-air pressure drop, and variable fuel-air ratio was conducted. The cooling equation, temperature-limited performance, maximum engine temperatures, and other information predicted by calculations is described.
