Abstract:

Flight tests were conducted on a J47-GE-25 engine with a modified fuel system designed to prevent the loss of full throttle engine speed which is normally experienced during altitude operation on the standard engine. The fuel system tested incorporated an orifice and a modified flow divider in the fuel system. Two orifice sizes were tested using two different acceleration time settings.
