The infrared spectra of spiropentane methylenecyclobutane and 2-methyl-1-butene

The infrared spectra of spiropentane methylenecyclobutane and 2-methyl-1-butene

Date: October 1, 1946
Creator: Cleaves, Alden P & Sherrick, Mildred E
Description: The infrared spectra of spiropentane, methylenecyclobutane, and 2-methyl-1-butene were measured in the region from 3 to 14 microns with a rock salt prism spectrometer of medium dispersion. The pure samples were prepared at the NACA Cleveland Laboratory. The vapors of these three C5 hydrocarbons were investigated at room temperature and at pressures in the range from 80 to 300 millimeters of mercury absolute in a 10-centimeter cell. The spectra were compared with each other and with Ramon spectra for the same compounds.

Tank Tests to Show the Effect Rivet Heads on the Water Performance of a Seaplane-Float

Tank Tests to Show the Effect Rivet Heads on the Water Performance of a Seaplane-Float

Date: July 1938
Creator: Parkinson, J. B.
Description: A 1/3.5 full-sized model of a seaplane float constructed from lines supplied by the Bureau of Aeronautics, Navy Department, was tested first with smooth painted bottom surfaces and then with round-head rivets, plate laps, and keel plates fitted to simulate the actual bottom of a metal float. A percentage increase in water resistance caused by the added roughness was found to be from 5 to 20 percent at the hump speed and from 15 to 40 percent at high speeds. The effect of the roughness of the afterbody was found to be negligible except at high trims. The model data were extrapolated to full size by the usual method that assumes the forces to vary according to Froude's law and, in the case of the smooth model, by a method of separation that takes into account the effect of scale on the frictional resistance. It was concluded that the effect of rivet heads on the take-off performance of a relatively high-powered float seaplane is of little consequence, but it may be of greater importance in the case of more moderately powered flying boats.

Tank tests of auxiliary vanes as a substitute for planing area

Tank tests of auxiliary vanes as a substitute for planing area

Date: February 1934
Creator: Parkinson, John B.
Description: The results of towing tests made on two models at the request of the Bureau of Aeronautics, Navy Department, are presented. The first model represents the hull of the U.S. Navy PN-8 flying boat, in which the sponsors of the original hull are removed and auxiliary lifting vanes are fitted at the chines immediately forward of the main step. The tests showed that the altered form gave a large increase in hump resistance and a very undesirable spray formation through a large part of the speed range.

Tests of N-85, N-86 and N-87 airfoil sections in the 11-inch high speed wind tunnel

Tests of N-85, N-86 and N-87 airfoil sections in the 11-inch high speed wind tunnel

Date: September 1938
Creator: Stack, John & Lindsey, W. F.
Description: Three airfoils, the N-85, the N-86, and the N-87, were tested at the request of the Bureau of Aeronautics, Navy Department, to determine the suitability of these sections for use as propeller-blade sections. Further tests of the NACA 0009-64 airfoil were also made to measure the aerodynamic effect of thickening the trailing edge in accordance with current propeller practice. The N-86 and the N-87 airfoils appear to be nearly equivalent aerodynamically and both are superior to the N-85 airfoil. Comparison of those airfoils with the previously developed NACA 2409-34 airfoils indicate that the NACA 2409-34 is superior, particularly at high speeds. Thickening the trailing edge appears to have a detrimental effect, although the effect may be small if the trailing-edge radius is less than 0.5 percent of the cord. The N-86 and the N-87 airfoils appear to be nearly equivalent.

Shear Lag in a Plywood Sheet-Stringer Combination Used for the Chord Member of a Box Beam

Shear Lag in a Plywood Sheet-Stringer Combination Used for the Chord Member of a Box Beam

Date: March 1, 1948
Creator: Borsari, Palamede & Yu, Ai-Ting
Description: Theoretical and experimental investigations were made of the distribution of strains in a plywood sheet-stringer combination used as the chord member of a box beam acted upon by bending loads. The theoretical solution was obtained with the help of the principle of minimum potential energy and certain simplifying assumptions. Strain measurements were made on a build-up box beam by means of electrical-resistance strain gages connected with strain indicators. A very satisfactory agreement between the theoretical and experimental strains was obtained.
