dc.descriptionThe purpose of conducting a standard engine test on the Almen "barrel" type engine was primarily to study the characteristics of the "wabbler" type of crank motion. This type of engine lends itself readily to a cannon installation firing through the propeller, and because of its low head resistance in proportion to displacement, compactness, ease of armoring, etc., is unusually well adapted for airplane use.en_US
