COOLING FAN(S).--The fan(s) is located in
the cooling air duct between the flow modulator
and the fire damper. The fan(s) draws air from
the intake duct through the flow modulator. It
blows the air through the fire damper to the
module enclosure. The air enters the module
through the silencer. It passes across the ceiling-
mounted baffle within the enclosure and then
circulates around the engine. It exits through a
gap between the engine exhaust nozzle and the
exhaust eductor where it mixes with the engine
