PERFORMANCE AND OPERATIONAL STUDIES OF TWO FULL-SCALE JET-ENGINE THRUST-REVERSER SYSTEMS 570205

Some of the problems associated with the installation and use of a thrust reverser are best studied by means of full-scale tests. This paper describes two full-scale thrust-reverser installations tested by the NACA, one in a pylon-mounted engine simulating that on a jet bomber or transport and the other in a fighter-type airplane. The effects of reverse thrust on the airplane and engine are emphasized.
