A wind tunnel investigation has been conducted to determine the steady-state windmilling and engine speed decay characteristics of the J34-WE-32 turbo-jet over a range of altitudes from 5000 to 50,000 feet and simulated flight Mach numbers from 0.19 to 1.06. The effect of an engine accessory load on the speed decay characteristics was also determined. The accessory load was about 7.8 horsepower for engine speeds above 4000 rpm and decreased with decreasing engine speed. An analysis of the speed decay data was made and engine speed decay rates were determined for hypothetical accessory loads up to 40 horsepower.
