The report deals with the design of a Foa Energy Separator for use in a supersonic aircraft, the LTV F-8U Crusader. Calculations are carried out to obtain a range of exit nozzle area ratios compatible with a variety of operating conditions. The effects of variations of the peripheral rotor velocity and discharge pressures on both the hot and cold outputs are analyzed. The potential merit of using a heat exchanger in conjunction with the separator, or of using ram air rather than bleed air, is also discussed.
