Just received via inter-library loan. As pro asked, table-of-contents attached so folks can ask questions.

I’m going to be working through this with an example of interest to me — a 180 ho liquid-cooled aircraft with an aft duct with a nominal cruise-climb speed of 85 kts IAS. From billski’s guidance in the other thread, we expect this to correspond to an inlet area of roughly 500 cm^2. If reasonable, let’s use these numbers for discussion.
