The calculated performance of a standard turbojet engine, a turbojet engine whose thrust is augmented by tail-pipe burning, and ram-jet engine are compared. Computations for the performance of the turbojet engines are based on an analytical extension of experimental data obtained from an investigation of a turbojet engine incorporating an 11-stage axial-flow compressor and a single-stage impulse turbine in the altitude wind tunnel.
