Mathematical and Experimental Investigation of Heat Control and Power Increase in Air-Cooled Aircraft Engines

Description: In order to understand the numerical relations between the air velocity, temperature of the cylinder walls, heat dissipation, cylinder dimensions and type of construction an experimental plant was installed in the Siemens and Halske laboratory.
