Small bending and stretching of sandwich-type shells

Small bending and stretching of sandwich-type shells

Date: January 1, 1950
Creator: Reissner, Eric
Description: A theory has been developed for small bending and stretching of sandwich-type shells. This theory is an extension of the known theory of homogeneous thin elastic shells. It was found that two effects are important in the present problem, which are not normally of importance in the theory of curved shells: (1) the effect of transverse shear deformation and (2) the effect of transverse normal stress deformation. The first of these two effects has been known to be of importance in the theory of plates and beams. The second effect was found to occur in a manner which is typical for shells and has no counterpart in flat-plate theory. The general results of this report have been applied to the solution of problems concerning flat plates, circular rings, circular cylindrical shells, and spherical shells. In each case numerical examples have been given, illustrating the magnitude of the effects of transverse shear and normal stress deformation.

Small-Scale Transonic Investigation of the Effects of Partial-Span Leading-Edge Camber on the Aerodynamic Characteristics of a 50 Deg 38' Sweptback Wing of Aspect Ratio 2.98

Date: June 23, 1952
Creator: Alford, William J., Jr. & Byrnes, Andrew L., Jr.
Description: A small-scale transonic investigation of two semispan wings of the same plan form was made in the Langley high-speed 7- by 10-foot tunnel through a Mach number range of 0.70 to 1.10 and a mean-test Reynolds number range of 745,000 to 845,000 to determine the effects of partial-span leading-edge camber on the aerodynamic characteristics of a swept-back wing. This paper presents the results of the investigation of wing-alone and wing-fuselage configurations of the two wings; one, was an uncambered wing and the other had the forward 45 percent of the chord cambered over the outboard 55 percent of the span. The semispan wings had 50deg 38ft sweepback of their quarter-chord lines, aspect ratio of 2.98, taper ratio of 0.45, and modified NACA 64A-series airfoil sections tapered in thickness ratio. Lift, drag, pitching moment, and root-bending moment were obtained for these configurations. The results indicated that, for the wing-alone configuration, use of the partial-span leading-edge camber provided an increase in maximum lift-drag ratios up to a Mach number of 0.95, after which no gain was realized. For the wing-fuselage combination, the partial-span leading-edge camber appeared to cause no gain in maximum lift-drag ratio throughout the test range of Mach numbers. The ...

Smoke studies of secondary flows in bends, tandem cascades, and high-turning configurations

Smoke studies of secondary flows in bends, tandem cascades, and high-turning configurations

Date: March 11, 1953
Creator: Hansen, Arthur G; Costello, George R & Herzig, Howard Z
Description: Flow-visualization studies, using smoke, were made of the secondary flows in rectangular bends, tandem cascades, and high-turning configurations. The roll-up of the wall boundary layer of a rectangular bend forms a passage vortex near the suction surface similar to that previously observed for cascades. The vortex so formed then shifts out into the main stream. Because of leading-edge effects, the boundary-layer flows in bends were found to be sufficiently different from the flows in blade rows to make direct application of bend results to blade rows inadvisable. Passage vortices are shown, in the tandem-cascade study, to resist turning with the main stream through which they pass and to disturb the flow in subsequent blade rows. This disturbance may explain in part the appreciable size of the losses sometimes attributed to secondary flows in turbomachines despite the fact that the energy involvement in vortex formation is slight. Tip-flow studies of high-turning blades with relative motion between blades and end wall indicated that if the relative sizes of the passage vortex forces, the tip clearance forces, and the blade-scraping effects are properly controlled, it may be possible to improve the blade-tip loading characteristics in turbomachine.

Smoke study of nozzle secondary flows in a low-speed turbine

Smoke study of nozzle secondary flows in a low-speed turbine

Date: November 1, 1954
Creator: Kofskey, Milton G & Allen, Hubert W
Description: Still and motion pictures were made of boundary-layer and wake secondary-flow phenomena visualized by smoke. Two annular cascades of turbine nozzles were used, both designed for constant discharge angle but differing in blade shape and suction-surface velocity distribution. Flows were similar to those obtained with pressure and angle measurements at near-sonic airspeeds. Boundary-layer cross-channel and trailing-edge radial flows caused vortices and an accumulation of low-momentum air at the hub, which may affect flow in following blade rows. Motion of a downstream rotor blade row produced pulsations in trailing-edge radial flow. The motion-picture supplement may be obtained on loan from NACA Headquarters, Washington, D.C.
