Extension of Useful Operating Range of Axial-Flow Compressors by Use of Adjustable Stator Blades

Extension of Useful Operating Range of Axial-Flow Compressors by Use of Adjustable Stator Blades

Date: January 1, 1948
Creator: Sinnette, John T & Voss, William J
Description: A theory has been developed for resetting the blade angles of an axial-flow compressor in order to improve the performance at speeds and flows other than the design and thus extend the useful operating range of the compressor. The theory is readily applicable to the resetting of both rotor and stator blades or to the resetting of only the stator blades and is based on adjustment of the blade angles to obtain lift coefficients at which the blades will operate efficiently. Calculations were made for resetting the stator blades of the NACA eight-stage axial-flow compressor for 75 percent of design speed and a series of load coefficients ranging from 0.28 to 0.70 with rotor blades left at the design setting. The NACA compressor was investigated with three different blade settings: (1) the design blade setting, (2) the stator blades reset for 75 percent of design speed and a load coefficient of 0.48, and (3) the stator blades reset for 75 percent of design speed and a load coefficient of 0.65.

Paths of Target Seeking Missiles in Two Dimensions

Date: July 1, 1946
Creator: Watkins, Charles E.
Description: Parameters that enter into equation of trajectory of a missile are discussed. Investigation is made of normal pursuit, of constant, proportional, and line--of-sight methods of navigation employing target seeker, and of deriving corresponding pursuit paths. Pursuit paths obtained under similar conditions for different methods are compared. Proportional navigation is concluded to be best method for using target seeker installed in missile.

Critical Mach Numbers of Thin Airfoil Sections with Plain Flaps

Critical Mach Numbers of Thin Airfoil Sections with Plain Flaps

Date: April 1, 1946
Creator: Pardee, Otway O'm. & Heaslet, Max A.
Description: Critical Mach number as function of lift coefficient is determined for certain moderately thick NACA low-drag airfoils. Results, given graphically, included calculations on same airfoil sections with plain flaps for small flap deflections. Curves indicate optimum critical conditions for airfoils with flaps in such form that they can be compared with corresponding results for zero flap deflections. Plain flaps increase life-coefficient range for which critical Mach number is in region of high values characteristic of low-drag airfoils.

Field of Flow About a Jet and Effect of Jets on Stability of Jet-Propelled Airplanes

Field of Flow About a Jet and Effect of Jets on Stability of Jet-Propelled Airplanes

Date: April 1, 1946
Creator: Ribner, Herbert S.
Description: A theoretical investigation was conducted on jet-induced flow deviation. Analysis is given of flow inclination induced outside cold and hot jets and jet deflection caused by angle of attack. Applications to computation of effects of jet on longitudinal stability and trim are explained. Effect of jet temperature on flow inclination was found small when thrust coefficient is used as criterion for similitude. The average jet-induced downwash over tail plane was obtained geometrically.

Development of Wing Inlets

Development of Wing Inlets

Date: March 1, 1946
Creator: Racisz, Stanley F.
Description: Lift, drag, internal flow, and pressure distribution measurements were made on a low-drag airfoil incorporating various air inlet designs. Two leading-edge air inlets are developed which feature higher lift coefficients and critical Mach than the basic airfoil. Higher lift coefficients and critical speeds are obtained for leading half of these inlet sections but because of high suction pressures near exist, slightly lower critical speeds are obtained for the entire inlet section than the basic airfoil.

Flight Investigation at High Speeds of Profile Drag of Wing of a P-47D Airplane Having Production Surfaces Covered with Camouflage Paint

Date: March 1, 1946
Creator: Daum, Fred L. & Zalovcik, John A.
Description: Wing section outboard of flap was tested by wake surveys in Mach range of 0.25 - 0.78 and lift coefficient range 0.06 - 0.69. Results indicated that minimum profile-drag coefficient of 0.0097 was attained for lift coefficients from 0.16 to 0.25 at Mach less than 0.67. Below Mach number at which compressibility shock occurred, variations in Mach of 0.2 had negligible effect on profile drag coefficient. Shock was not evident until critical Mach was exceeded by 0.025.

Effect of Compressibility on the Pressure and Forces Acting on a Modified NACA 65,3-019 Airfoil Having a 0.20-Chord Flap

Date: January 1, 1946
Creator: Lindsey, W F
Description: An investigation has been conducted in the Langley rectangular high-speed tunnel to determine the effect of compressibility on the pressure distribution for a modified NACA 65,3-019 airfoil having a 0.20-chord flap. The investigation was made for an angle-of-attack range extending from -2 to 12 deg at .20 flap deflections from 0 to -12 deg. Test data were obtained for Mach numbers from 0.28 to approximately 0.74. The results show that the effectiveness of the trailing-edge-type control surface rapidly decreased and approached zero as the Mach number increased above the critical value.
