investigation of altitude starting and acceleration characteristics of j47 turbojet engineAn investigation was conducted on an axial-flow-compressor type turbojet engine in the NACA Lewis altitude wind tunnel to determine the operational characteristics of several ignition systems, cross-fire tube configurations and fuel systems over a range of simulated flight conditions. The opposite-polarity-type spark plug provided the most satisfactory ignition. Increasing the cross-fire-tube diameter improved intercombustor flame propagation. At high windmilling speeds, accelerations to approximately 6200 rpm could be made at a preset constant throttle position. The use of a variable-area nozzle reduced acceleration time.
