Abstract:

The results of an experimental investigation made for the purpose of developing suitable jet-engine nacelle designs for a high speed medium bomber are presented. Two types of nacelles were investigated, the first enclosing two 4000-pound-thrust Jet engines and a 65-inch-diameter landing wheel and the second enclosing a single 4000-pound-thrust jet engine. Both types of nacelles were tested in positions underslung beneath the wing and centrally located on the wing.
