dc.descriptionThe object of this document is to make available to designers a single report embodying complete descriptions of American-built geared engines with data on performance tests. The tests conducted were not sufficiently comprehensive to warrant definite conclusions as to the relative merits of the various types. The results indicate, however, that while several apparently successful forms of gearing are available, the engines themselves must be better adapted to the increased stresses due both to the presence of the gear train and to the high speed at which geared engines are usually operated.en_US
