About this Item

Wire spiral bound. Rubbed salmon-color cardboard cover. A 'Cadet Series/Cadet System' publication. From Preface (November 1941): 'This book states that the compression ratio of five and one-half is about the maximum engine compression encountered, and this is true in the bulk of aircraft engine practice. However, in the very large and supercharged engines, compression ratios run as high as eight, but special high octane rating fuels are required. The current example running through this text deals with an engine of five and one-half compression ratio, but problems for any compression ratio can be solved with the data, curves, and methods given. This text on Thermodynamics, together with a good conventional aircraft engine textbook, and a similar book for maintenance and service, will give a very complete coverage of the subject of aircraft engines.' Contents: Elementary Principles, Principles of Engine Operation, Two-Stroke and Four-Stroke Cycle Engines, Isothermal Compression and Expansion of Gases, Fuels and Chemistry of Combustion, Heating Value of Fuels, Specific Heat, Indicator Diagrams, Power Calculations, Engine Efficiency, Performance Calculations, Obtaining Performance Data, Volumetric Efficiency, Engine Cooling, Valve Theory, Carburetion and Ignition. 42 Figures. Inventory #27-17-002409-4057. Bookseller Inventory # 002409
