Title: APPLICATION OF THE CLOSED-CYCLE PRINCIPLE TO AIRCRAFT PROPULSION SYSTEMS. VOLUME VII, CHAPTERS 1 TO 4. GASEOUS WORKING MEDIA FOR CLOSED CYCLE POWER PLANTS. (Cover carries title: CLOSED CYCLE AIRCRAFT PROPULSION SYSTEMS)

Abstract

At the present state of the art, He, N/sub 2/, and C0/sub 2/ are considered feasible as working media in nuclear power plants. Particularly for a NAP-plant, helium seems to be the best suited gas with respect to radiation stability and resulting piant size. A great advantage is the excellent heat transfer properties of helium. They are of prime importance for the size of the heat transfer equipment, which naturally should be kept as small as possible fer use in aircraft. In the cycles under consideration, gaseous mixtures might also be used as working media. (auth)
