A Method of Determining the Equilibrium Performance and the Stability of an Engine Equipped With an Exhaust Turbosupercharger

Description: "The performance of an exhaust turbine driving a supercharger is investigated by means of a sample calculation based on reasonable assumptions for the purpose of determining whether the assumed installation is stable with respect to changes in the mass of gas handled, boost pressure, etc. The arrangement was found to be stable throughout the entire range of operation. The method developed can be generally applied" (p. 1).

Exhaust Turbine and Jet Propulsion Systems

Description: DVL experimental and analytical work on the cooling of turbine blades by using ram air as the working fluid over a sector or sectors of the turbine annulus area is summarized. The subsonic performance of ram-jet, turbo-jet, and turbine-propeller engines with both constant pressure and pulsating-flow combustion is investigated. Comparison is made with the performance of a reciprocating engine and the advantages of the gas turbine and jet-propulsion engines are analyzed. Nacelle installation methods and power-level control are discussed.
