Tail Buffeting

Tail Buffeting

Date: February 1, 1943
Creator: Abdrashitov, G.
Description: An approximate theory of buffeting is here presented, based on the assumption of harmonic disturbing forces. Two cases of buffeting are considered: namely, for a tail angle of attack greater and less than the stalling angle, respectively. On the basis of the tests conducted and the results of foreign investigators, a general analysis is given of the nature of the forced vibrations the possible load limits on the tail, and the methods of elimination of buffeting.

The Theory of a Free Jet of a Compressible Gas

The Theory of a Free Jet of a Compressible Gas

Date: March 1, 1944
Creator: Abramovich, G. N.
Description: In the present report the theory of free turbulence propagation and the boundary layer theory are developed for a plane-parallel free stream of a compressible fluid. In constructing the theory use was made of the turbulence hypothesis by Taylor (transport of vorticity) which gives best agreement with test results for problems involving heat transfer in free jets.

Air forces on airfoils moving faster than sound

Air forces on airfoils moving faster than sound

Date: June 1, 1925
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: We are undertaking the task of computing the air forces on a slightly cambered airfoil in the absence of friction and with an infinite aspect ratio. We also assume in advance that the leading edge is very sharp and that its tangent lies in the direction of motion.

Drag measurements of two thin wing sections at different index values

Drag measurements of two thin wing sections at different index values

Date: June 1, 1927
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: It is stated that the index value 6000, as found in normal tests of wing sections with a 20 cm chord, falls in the same region where the transition of laminar to turbulent flow takes place on thin flat plates. It is to be expected that slightly cambered, thin wing sections will behave similarly. The following test of two such wing sections were made for the purpose of verifying this supposition.

Experiments on airfoils with trailing edge cut away

Experiments on airfoils with trailing edge cut away

Date: September 1, 1927
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: Airfoils with their trailing edge cut away are often found on aircraft, as the fins on the hulls of flying boats and the central section of the wings for affording better visibility. It was therefore of some interest to discover the effect of such cutaways on the lift and drag and on the position of the center of pressure. For this purpose, systematic experiments were performed on two different airfoils, a symmetrical airfoil and an airfoil of medium thickness, with successive shortenings of their chords.

Experiments with an airfoil from which the boundary layer is removed by suction

Experiments with an airfoil from which the boundary layer is removed by suction

Date: August 1, 1926
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: Our attempts to improve the properties of airfoils by removing the boundary layer by suction, go back to 1922. The object of the suction is chiefly to prevent the detachment of the boundary layer from the surface of the airfoil. At large angles of attack, such detachment prevents the attainment of the great lift promised by the theory, besides greatly increasing the drag, especially of thick airfoils. This report gives results of those experiments.

High-speed wind tunnels

High-speed wind tunnels

Date: November 1, 1936
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: Wind tunnel construction and design is discussed especially in relation to subsonic and supersonic speeds. Reynolds Numbers and the theory of compressible flows are also taken into consideration in designing new tunnels.

Recent experiments at the Gottingen Aerodynamic Institute

Date: July 1, 1925
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: This report presents the results of various experiments carried out at the Gottingen Aerodynamic Institute. These include: experiments with Joukowski wing profiles; experiments on an airplane model with a built-in motor and functioning propeller; and the rotating cylinder (Magnus Effect).

Removing boundary layer by suction

Removing boundary layer by suction

Date: January 1, 1927
Creator: Ackeret, J
Description: Through the utilization of the "Magnus effect" on the Flettner rotor ship, the attention of the public has been directed to the underlying physical principle. It has been found that the Prandtl boundary-layer theory furnishes a satisfactory explanation of the observed phenomena. The present article deals with the prevention of this separation or detachment of the flow by drawing the boundary layer into the inside of a body through a slot or slots in its surface.
