The theoretical performance of the turbine-propeller engine with augmentation by means of compressor-inlet water injection, tail-pipe burning, and a combination of the two methods was evaluated. The investigation covered altitudes and Mach numbers representing the most probable range of application for each of the augmentation methods.
