SUPERSONIC BOMBER PROPULSION PROBLEMS 560276

This paper outlines some of the problems of installing engines on the first supersonic bomber. Emphasis is on the new problems. The treatment is more historical and philosophical than technical. The effects of several technical difficulties on the configuration of the power plant are discussed. Examples of major testing programs are given. It is hoped that the paper will give some evidence of the increasing needs of engineers to analyze power plant installation problems as airplane speed increases.
