Extension of pack method for compressive tests

Extension of pack method for compressive tests

Date: December 1, 1940
Creator: Aitchison, C S
Description: The pack method for determining compressive stress-strain graphs described in NACA Report No. 649 has been modified to extend it's application to thinner gages and stronger materials. The principal modifications consisted in the provision of additional support against instability cementing the specimens of the pack together with fused shellac and the provision of special clamps to hold the specimens together while the test is in progress. The shellac was found to increase the buckling load of the pack without any appreciable effect on the compressive stress-strain graph of the material. The extended pack method described in this note has made possible the application of stresses in excess of 220 kips per square inch to sheet material having a thickness of only 0.02 inch.

Pressure-distribution investigation on an NACA 0009 airfoil with a 30-percent-chord plain flap and three tabs

Pressure-distribution investigation on an NACA 0009 airfoil with a 30-percent-chord plain flap and three tabs

Date: May 1, 1940
Creator: Ames, Milton B & Sears, Richard I
Description: Pressure-distribution tests of an NACA 0009 airfoil with a 30-percent-chord plain flap and three plain tabs, having chords 10, 20, and 30 percent of the flap chord, were made. The purpose of these tests was to continue an investigation to supply structural and aerodynamic section data that may be applied to the design of horizontal and vertical tail surfaces. The results are presented as diagrams of resultant pressures and of resultant-pressure increments for the airfoil with the flap and the 20-percent-chord tab. Increments of normal-force and hinge-moment coefficients for the airfoil, the flap, and the three tabs are also given. At all unstalled flap and tab deflections, the experimental distributions agree well with those calculated by an analytical method. The agreement is poor, however, then the stalled or the unstalled condition of the flap or tab deflected alone was changed to an unstalled or stalled condition by the simultaneous deflection of both the flap and the tab.

Wind-tunnel investigation of two airfoils with 25-percent-chord Gwinn and plain flaps

Wind-tunnel investigation of two airfoils with 25-percent-chord Gwinn and plain flaps

Date: May 1, 1940
Creator: Ames, Milton B , Jr
Description: Aerodynamic force tests of an NACA 23018 airfoil with a Gwinn flap having a chord 25 percent of the overall chord and of an NACA 23015 airfoil with a plain flap having a 25-percent chord were conducted to determine the relative merits of the Gwinn and the plain flaps. The tests indicated that, based on speed-range ratios, the plain flap was more effective than the Gwinn flap. At small flap deflections, the plain flap had lower drag coefficients at lift-coefficient values less than 0.70. For lift coefficients greater than 0.70, however, the Gwinn flap at all downward flap deflections had the lower drag coefficients.

Pressure-distribution investigation of an NACA 0009 airfoil with an 80-percent-chord plain flap and three tabs

Date: May 1, 1940
Creator: Ames, Milton B , Jr & Sears, Richard I
Description: Pressure-distribution tests of an NACA 0009 airfoil with an 80-percent-chord plain flap and three plain tabs, having chord of 10, 20, and 30 percent of the flap chord, were made. Section data suitable for application to the design of horizontal and vertical tail surfaces were obtained. Resultant-pressure diagrams for the airfoil with the flap and the 20-percent-chord tab are presented. Plots are also given of increments of normal-force and hinge-moment coefficients for the airfoil, the flap, and the three tabs. A comparison of some characteristic slopes for the 30-, the 50-, and the 80-percent-chord flaps, tested in the general investigation of plain flaps for control surfaces, is included. Section aerodynamic and load data have been made available for a wide range of flap and a tab chords to be used on an NACA 0009 airfoil or on other conventional sections.

Flight investigation of control-stick vibration of the YG-1B autogiro

Flight investigation of control-stick vibration of the YG-1B autogiro

Date: June 1, 1940
Creator: Bailey, F J , Jr
Description: As a preliminary step in an investigation of control-stick vibration in direct-control autogiros, the periodic variations in the moments transmitted through the control system of a YG-1B autogiro were recorded in flight. The results of the measurements are presented in the form of coefficients of Fourier series expressing the varying part of the lateral and the longitudinal moments acting between rotor and fuselage at the control trunnions. The most important component of the variation in stick force was found to have frequency of three times the rotor speed and an amplitude that rose from negligible values at tip-speed ratio below 0.20 to +/-5.2 pounds longitudinally and +/-3.2 pounds laterally at tip-speed ratios of 0.35. Variations in stick force at all other frequencies were small in comparison with those at three times the rotor speed.

Boundary-Layer Transition on the N.A.C.A. 0012 and 23012 Airfoils in the 8-Foot High-Speed Wind Tunnel, Special Report

Date: January 1, 1940
Creator: Becker, John V.
Description: Determinations of boundary-layer transition on the NACA 0012 and 2301 airfoils were made in the 8-foot high-speed wind tunnel over a range of Reynolds Numbers from 1,600,000 to 16,800,000. The results are of particular significance as compared with flight tests and tests in wind tunnels of appreciable turbulence because of the extremely low turbulence in the high-speed tunnel. A comparison of the results obtained on NACA 0012 airfoils of 2-foot and 5-foot chord at the same Reynolds Number permitted an evaluation of the effect of compressibility on transition. The local skin friction along the surface of the NACA 0012 airfoil was measured at a Reynolds Number of 10,000,000. For all the lift coefficient at which tests were made, transition occurred in the region of estimated laminar separation at the low Reynolds Numbers and approach the point of minimum static pressure as a forward limit at the high Reynolds Numbers. The effect of compressibility on transition was slight. None of the usual parameters describing the local conditions in the boundary layer near the transition point served as an index for locating the transition point. As a consequence of the lower turbulence in the 8-foot high-speed tunnel, the transition points occurred consistently ...
