Abstract

THE work which forms the subject matter of this paper relates to a device for reducing the air resistance of an air‐cooled radial engine. The device is one which can be added to the engine without completely enclosing the cylinders, either singly or collectively, in streamline casings of the conventional type, which usually render the engine inaccessible.
