Abstract

THE engines used for the jet propulsion of aircraft have been described in detail on many occasions in the last year or so. Most of these descriptions, however, have been purely factual, and little has been written about the theoretical aspects. In view of the unconventionality of these power units, it is hoped that the following notes, in which a simple analysis of the theory is given, may be of interest.
