AERODYNAMIC COMPUTATION OF AIR FUEL RATIOS

The rate of fuel flow for maintaining a constant AF ratio is derived from the turn angle of a spring-restrained air-screw type rotor placed in the engine air flow. Vane vortex theory and air flow test approaches and results are presented, a prototype control device defined and analyzed, alternate versions shown and factors affecting engine compatibility discussed.
