Abstract

ONE of the main problems of pressing importance in aeronautics concerns the variation of engine power with height. For many years now attempts have been made analytically to arrive at a reasonable law for this variation but disagreement between calculated and observed performances of aircraft based on the supposed power factors has still kept critical attention focussed on any possible solution of this important matter.
