An investigation has been conducted in the NACA Cleveland altitude wind tunnel to evaluate the operational characteristics of a 3000-pound-thrust axial-flow turbojet engine over a range of simulated altitudes from 2000 to 50,000 feet and simulated flight Mach numbers from 0 to 1.04 throughout the operable range of engine speeds. Operational characteristics investigated include engine operating range, acceleration, deceleration, starting, altitude and flight-Mach-number compensation of the fuel-control system, and operation of the lubrication system at high and low ambient-air temperatures.
