Review of liquid-cooled aircraft engine installation aerodynamics

1988 Journal of Aircraft  
The aerodynamic behavior of liquid-cooled aircraft engine cooling installations is reviewed. Design considerations for inlets, diffusers, and exists are discussed. It is shown that the design of an efficient liquid-cooled installation is a techically sophisticated problem. This problem should not be underestimated in the development program of liquid-cooled aircraft engines. Questions are raised concerning the availability of suitable radiators for aircraft installations.
