The effect of compression ratio on knock limits of high-performance fuels in a CFR engine 3: blends of 2,3-dimethylpentane with 28-R

Description: Report discussing the knock-limited performance of blends of 2,3-dimethylpentane and 23-R fuel in an F-4 engine at three sets of conditions and three compression ratios. The knock-limited performance of 2,3-dimethylpentane has about the same sensitivity to compression ratio and inlet-air temperature as 28-R fuel.

The Effect of Compression Ratio on Knock Limits of High-Performance Fuels in a CFR Engine II : Blends of 2,2,3-Trimethylpentane with 28-R

Description: The knock-limited performance of blends of 0,50; and 100 percent by volume of 2,2,3-trimethylpentane in 28-R fuel determined with a modified F-4 engine at three sets of conditions varying from severe to mild at each of three compression ratios (6.0, 8.0, and 10.0). A comparison of the knock-limited performance of 2,2,3-trimethylpentane with that of triptane (2,2,3-trimethylbutane) is included. The knock-Limited performance of 2,2,3-trimethylpontane was usually more sensitive to either compression ratio or inlet-air temperature than 28-R fuel, but the ratio of the knock-limited indicated mean effective pressure of a given blend containing 2,2,3-trimethypentane and 28-R to the indicated mean effective pressure of 28-R alone was not greatly affected by compression ratio if the engine operating conditions were mild. Although 2,2,3-trimethylpentane in general had a lower knock-limited performance than triptane, the characteristics of the two fuels were somewhat similar.

Investigation of slipstream effects on a wing-inlet oil-cooler ducting system of a twin-engine airplane in the Ames 40- by 80-foot wind tunnel

Description: Report discussing an investigation of wing-inlet oil-cooler ducts on a twin-engine airplane to determine internal and external-flow characteristics of the ducting installation. Testing was also performed on revised inlets to attempt to develop a ducting system with low overall losses throughout the operating range.
