Abstract

ONE of tin: most important causes of low efficiency in duel systems is tin; large loss which accompanies a transformation from kinetic energy to pressure. The exit cones of wind tunnels and turbines and the expanding entries to cooling duets and air‐intakes on aircraft are some of the duct systems which lvcpiirc ellicient expansions of the flow.
