Turbojet propulsion-system research and the resulting effects on airplane performance

Rothrock, Addison M.

Airplane performance is analyzed to relate the effects of variations in airplane weight distribution, lift-drag ratio, engine efficiency, specific weight, temperature limitations, and fuel heat of combustion. Possible improvements in turbojet propulsion systems are discussed in connection with research information available in these areas. Fuel availability and the relation of critical materials to over-all engine production is discussed.
