Abstract : Three articles are presented in the report: (1) The use of a dissociating gas system as the working medium in a closed gas-turbine cycle increases the gas constant in the turbine and decreases it in the compressor, thus increasing the efficiency, compared with cycles using inert gases. The article deals with the Al2Cl6 = 2AlCl3 system. (2) Experimental studies of heat transfer in a chemically reactive gas flow have been carried out. The Nusselt number was used as a function of the Reynolds and Prandtl criteria in a forced turbulent flow in a tube. The experimental unit consisted of a closed loop using a pump for the circulation of N2O4. (3) This article is a companion to the preceding article dealing with heat exchange in the presence of a chemical reaction, but under equilibrium conditions. The article deals with the modifications that must be made to the calculations when allowance is made for the kinetics of the chemical reaction.
