June 1920 NEWBURY AND FECHHEIMER: TEMPERATURE DETECTORS 549 The above is followed by a discussion of the problems of heat flow in connection with the copper, iron and insulating parts, indicating, in a general way, where the principal temperature drops occur. This is followed by a general discussion of copper, iron and air friction losses and a rough indication is given as to the enormous volumes of cooling air required by such machinery. Temperature determination is next taken up, with a short

The paper is intended to be educational in the sense that it points out what the actual turbo-generator problems are, in so far as they concern turbo ventilation. It does not attempt to go into the quantitative solution of such problems.
