Abstract

AN interesting feature of modern aeroplane design is the growing use of duct systems. The low drag and heat regeneration obtainable from a cooling duct is now an accomplished fact. Ventilation systems for cabin aircraft have been introduced. In the future we may see duct systems used in connexion with the control of the boundary layer. As aeroplane design is improved, new applications of duct systems continue to appear.
