Special radiator tests of DH-4 airplane P-297 to determine best location of radiator to give maximum speed (power plant section report)
MetadataShow full item record
DescriptionThis report describes a test in five radiators of equal cooling ability to determine which position of mounting will afford maximum airplane speed. The results of the test show that radiator No. 2, free-air radiator mounted under the engine, gave results second to those obtained with the Curtiss wing skin radiator. It is considered that this type of radiator mounted below the engine offers the best possibilities for the development of service type radiators which will give maximum speed with required cooling and minimum maintenance troubles. This is especially true for the larger engines.
