This invention relates to the cooling of the outer wall of a combustion chamber or other highly heated container. It is the general object of my invention to provide an improved cooling jacket construction by which such chambers or containers may be very effectively cooled by a jacket structure of minimum weight. To the attainment of this object, I provide a system of conduits or tubes and associated parts, by which a cooling fluid may be circulated about a combustion chamber and by which the transfer of heat thereto may be facilitated. More specifically, I provide conduits or tubes of such cross section as to present maximum resistance to distortion together with associated heat transfer elements or filler strips which overcome the disadvantage of line contact only between such a conduit and a combustion chamber wall.
