An analysis of the performance of the types A, B, and C combustion chambers of the 4000-pound-thrust axial-flow turbojet engine is presented. The data were obtained from investigations of the complete engine over a range of pressure altitudes from 5000 to 40,000 feet and ram pressure ratios from 1.00 to 1.86. The combustion-chamber pressure losses, the effect of the losses on cycle efficiency, and the combustion efficiency are discussed.
