dc.description.abstract The present report attempts a general survey of the whole field of gas-turbine combustion. The report covers both research and development, and while it is mainly concerned with British work, some mention is also made of German work on the same subject. The related processes of combustion in propulsive ducts are briefly touched on. The report is based on a paper to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, but with much fresh material, including a comprehensive bibliography. There have been many groups of investigators concerned in this work at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Power Jets, Joseph Lucas & Co., the Asiatic Petroleum Co., Metropolitan Vickers Ltd., Rolls-Royce, Armstrong Siddeley's, De Havillands and the City and Guilds College. In preparing the present report, full use has been made of the work of all these groups and of the Combustion Panel of the Ministry of Aircraft Production's Gas Turbine Collaboration Committee through which they co-operated; this debt is gratefully acknowledged. On the other hand the interpretation and assessment of the work are the author's, and for these full responsibility is taken. en_US
