An aerodynamic analysis of the autogiro rotor with a comparison between calculated and experimental results

An aerodynamic analysis of the autogiro rotor with a comparison between calculated and experimental results

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Wheatley, John B
Description: This report presents an extension of the autogiro theory of Glauert and Lock in which the influence of a pitch varying with the blade radius is evaluated and methods of approximating the effect of blade tip losses and the influence of reversed velocities on the retreating blades are developed. A comparison of calculated and experimental results showed that most of the rotor characteristics could be calculated with reasonable accuracy, and that the type of induced flow assumed has a secondary effect upon the net rotor forces, although the flapping motion is influenced appreciably. An approximate evaluation of the effect of parasite drag on the rotor blades established the importance of including this factor in the analysis.

The aerodynamic effects of wing cut-outs

The aerodynamic effects of wing cut-outs

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Sherman, Albert
Description: In connection with the interference program being conducted in the NACA variable-density wind tunnel, an analysis was made of available material with the object of presenting a qualitative discussion on wing characteristics as affected by cut-outs and of determining means for their quantitative calculation.

Air conditions close to the ground and the effect on airplane landings

Air conditions close to the ground and the effect on airplane landings

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Thompson, F L; Peck, W C & Beard, A P
Description: This report presents the results of an investigation undertaken to determine the feasibility of making glide landings in gusty air. Wind velocities were measured at several stations between the ground and a height of 51 feet, and flight tests were made to determine the actual influence of gusts on an airplane gliding close to the ground.

Combustion in a bomb with a fuel-injection system

Combustion in a bomb with a fuel-injection system

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Cohn, Mildred & Spencer, Robert C
Description: Fuel injected into a spherical bomb filled with air at a desired density and temperature could be ignited with a spark a few thousandths of a second after injection, an interval comparable with the ignition lag in fuel-injection engines. The effect of several variables on the extent and rate of combustion was investigated: time intervals between injection and ignition of fuel of 0.003 to 0.06 second and one of 5 minutes; initial air temperatures of 100 degrees C. to 250 degrees C.; initial air densities equivalent to 5, 10, and 15 absolute atmospheres pressure at 100 degrees C.; and air-fuel ratios of 5 to 25.

Computation of the two-dimensional flow in a laminar boundary layer

Computation of the two-dimensional flow in a laminar boundary layer

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Dryden, Hugh L
Description: A comparison is made of the boundary-layer flow computed by the approximate method developed by K. Pohlhausen with the exact solutions which have been published for several special cases. A modification of Pohlhausen's method has been developed which extends the range of application at the expense of some decrease in the accuracy of the approximations.

A description and test results of a spark-ignition and a compression-ignition 2-stroke-cycle engine

A description and test results of a spark-ignition and a compression-ignition 2-stroke-cycle engine

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Spanogle, J A & Whitney, E G
Description: This report presents performance results of air cooled and water-cooled engines. The results obtained were sufficiently promising to warrant further investigation with fuel injection and spark ignition, with the same arrangement of inlet ports and exhaust valves at the bottom of the cylinder and the exhaust gases discharged through two poppet valves in the cylinder head. The displacement of the engine was 118 cubic inches. Optimum performance was obtained with the inlet air directed into the cylinder at an angle of 20 degrees to the radial.

The drag of airplane wheels, wheel fairings, and landing gears - I

The drag of airplane wheels, wheel fairings, and landing gears - I

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Herrnstein, William H & Biermann, David
Description: This report presents the results of tests made in the 7-by 10-foot wind tunnel and in the 20-foot tunnel of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics to determine the drag of a number of airplane wheels, wheel fairings, and landing gears designed or selected for an airplane of 3,000 pounds gross weight. All tests were made on full-size models; those in the 7-by 10-foot tunnel were made at air speeds up to 80 miles per hour and those in the 20-foot tunnel were made at air speeds up to 100 miles per hour. Although most of the landing-gear tests were made in conjunction with a fuselage and at 0 degree pitch angle, some of the tests were made in conjunction with fuselage plus wings and a radial air-cooled engine and at pitch angles from -5 degrees to 6 degrees to obtain an indication of the general effect of these various items on landing-gear drag. All tests were made in the absence of propeller slipstream.

Effect of moderate air flow on the distribution of fuel sprays after injection cut-0ff

Effect of moderate air flow on the distribution of fuel sprays after injection cut-0ff

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Rothrock, A M & Spencer, R C
Description: High-speed motion pictures were taken of fuel sprays with the NACA spray-photographic apparatus to study the distribution of the liquid fuel from the instant of injection cut-off until about 0.05 second later. The fuel was injected into a glass-walled chamber in which the air density was varied from 1 to 13 times atmospheric air density (0.0765 to 0.99 pound per cubic foot) and in which the air was at room temperature. The air in the chamber was set in motion by means of a fan, and was directed counter to the spray at velocities up to 27 feet per second. The injection pressure was varied from 2,000 to 6,000 pounds per square inch. A 0.20-inch single-orifice nozzle, an 0.008-inch single-orifice nozzle, a multiorifice nozzle, and an impinging-jets nozzle were used. The best distribution was obtained by the use of air and a high-dispersion nozzle.

The effect of spray strips on the take-off performance of a model of a flying-boat hull

The effect of spray strips on the take-off performance of a model of a flying-boat hull

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Truscott, Starr
Description: The effect on the take-off performance of a model of the hull of a typical flying boat, Navy PH-1, of fitting spray strips of four different widths, each at three different angles, was determined by model tests in the NACA Tank. Spray strips of widths up to 3 percent of the beam improve the general performance at speeds near the hump and reduce the spray thrown. A downward angle of 30 degrees to 45 degrees in the neighborhood of the step seems most favorable for the reduction of the spray. The spray strips have a large effect in reducing the trimming moments at speeds near the hump speed, but have little effect on them at high speeds.

Effect of viscosity on fuel leakage between lapped plungers and sleeves and on the discharge from a pump-injection system

Effect of viscosity on fuel leakage between lapped plungers and sleeves and on the discharge from a pump-injection system

Date: January 1, 1935
Creator: Rothrock, A M & Marsh, E T
Description: Test data and analysis show that the rate of fuel leakage between a lapped plunger and sleeve varies directly with the density of the fuel, the diameter of the plunger, the pressure producing the leakage, and the cube of the mean clearance between the plunger and sleeve. The rate varies inversely as the length of the lapped fit and the viscosity of the fuel. With a mean clearance between the plunger and sleeve of 0.0001 inch the leakage amounts to approximately 0.2 percent of the fuel injected with gasoline and as low as 0.01 percent with diesel fuel oils. With this mean clearance an effective seal is obtained when the length of the lap is three times the diameter of the lap. The deformation of the sleeve and plunger under pressure is sufficient to change the rate of leakage appreciably from that which would be obtained if the clearance was constant under pressure.
