Abstract:

Sources of heated air were three exhaust-gas-to-air heat exchangers one was located in each of the outboard nacelles and the third in the inboard nacelle. Tables show temperatures of heated circulating air and surfaces and capacity of heat exchangers in flights at 10,000 and 18,000 ft pressure altitude. Curves show the exhaust gas and circulating air-pressure drops for one of the exchangers based upon investigation in flight with exchanger installed in single-engine test airplane.
