The B-29 doesn't use turbo-compounding but it's still a neat read :)

That is awesome to have a fluid coupling transferring power from the turbos to the crankshaft. The turbo coupling, turbo supercharged engine must have been a monster creating power all the way up to 30,000 feet.

Awesome but.... Troublesome.

Fluid couplings generate a lot (lot!) Of heat.

P&W tried an infinitely variable supercharger drive using a fluid coupling but didn't adopt it.
