Therefore, "gauge pressures" independent of atmospheric pressure-influenced "absolute" pressures are preferred for monitoring, tuning and diagnosing engine operation and performance when mechanical fuel systems and gauges are in use. Outside of MAP sensor data "gauge pressure" is typically used for engine system vacuum and pressure measurement. Which is why "boost gauges" almost universally indicate 0 psi at idle speed and load.

In an attempt to boost the performance of the Spitfire Mk1 in May , RAe scientists including Hayne Constant developed a 'propulsive duct'. This was in essence a simple ram jet, fed by petrol, utilising the Meredith effect.
Bench tests showed that the increase in speed was not significant and the device was not flight tested. In the idea was reconsidered as a counter to the threat of the V1. Aircraft such as the Hawker Tempest and Gloster Meteor were not widely available and the Spitfire would only be able to intercept in a diving attack. Baxter and C.

Smith at Farnborough reviewed the work and concluded that it was practical but problems with drag and pressure loss were encountered and the V1 had been beaten before they were solved. Due to the many differences in production Spitfires, performance could vary widely, even between aircraft with the same Mark number. Factors such as weight, external fittings, airframe and engine condition, among others, influenced how an aircraft performed.
For example, even relatively minor damage on the wing leading edges could drastically reduce top speed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Most L. Harvey-Bailey , p.
