Report Summary
Aircraft Exhaust
Systems IV
This report summarizes 16 months of study into the improvement of the efficiency, power and reliability of light aircraft exhaust systems.
The EPG and Aircraft Exhaust Systems CAFE studies in to the development of an Exhaust Pressure Graph.
EPG II CAFE looks at some specific exhaust designs
Fuel Handling Safety CAFE's fuel handling report arose from our own routine handling of aircraft fuel. This report was a study into the dangers of fuel ignition by a static electric charge due to re-fueling via portable containers.
Ignition Dynamics I The first article in a series on the dynamics of ignition
Ignition Dynamics II The second article in a series on the dynamics of ignition
Ignition Dynamics III The third article in a series on the dynamics of ignition
Local Flow I The first article in a series on the controlling local flow
Local Flow II The second article in a series on the controlling local flow
Local Flow III The third article in a series on the controlling local flow
Propless in California A study to confirm zero thrust measurements by flying a Cessna 152 without a propeller
Wax Effects on Drag The CAFE Foundation reports on it's attempt to quantify the drag reduction due to the effects of a "wax job."
ZTGT + CAFE Jack Norris and Andy Bauer explain zero thrust glide testing
