An accurate and rapid method for the design of supersonic nozzles

Description: From Introduction: "This report presents a computational procedure which provides for the rapid and accurate calculation of any streamline in a series of special flows. Detailed information is given on the boundary conditions and equations used for computing the characteristic nets and stream function."

Acoustic analysis of ram-jet buzz

Description: From Introduction: "The surging of a system containing a centrifugal- or axial-flow compressor (e.g., refs. 1 to 4) is an example of self-sustained oscillation. Inlets designed for supersonic jet engines also have been observed to induce oscillations (e.g., refs. 5 to 11) which are usually referred to as "buzz." The origin of buzz in ram-jet engines is the subject of the present report."

Acoustic radiation from two-dimensional rectangular cutouts in aerodynamic surfaces

Description: From Introduction: "The experiments in high-speed flow showed that an intense, high-frequency acoustic radiation is an essential feature of the problem. Consequently, a study of the acoustic field (involving schlieren observations and frequency and intensity measurements) was undertaken. This report presents the salient features of the study, which was mainly exploratory."

Acoustical treatment for the NACA 8- by 6-foot supersonic propulsion wind tunnel

Description: From Introduction: "This report presents results of a research and engineering program performed during the first half of 1950 that resulted in an acoustical treatment for the 8- by 6-foot supersonic wind tunnel at the Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory."

Aerodynamics of a rectangular wing of infinite aspect ratio at high angles of attack and supersonic speeds

Description: From Introduction: "The present paper contains a first-order evaluation of a number of aerodynamic derivatives for a rectangular wing of infinite aspect ratio at finite angles of attack, based upon the linear perturbation theory for rotational flow."

An analysis of acceleration, airspeed, and gust-velocity data from one type of four-engine transport airplane operated over two domestic routes

Description: From Introduction: "As part of a continuing study of the gust and load histories for transport airplanes (see, for example, refs. 1 and 2), samples of VGH records have been obtained from two four-engine commercial transport airplanes. The data samples represent 839 and 1,080 flight hours of operation on two transcontinental routes and cover operations up to an altitude of 25,000 feet."

An analysis of accelerations, airspeeds, and gust velocities from three commercial operations of one type of medium-altitude transport airplane

Description: From Introduction: "Past analyses of data from the NACA V-G and the NACA VGH recorders (see, for example, refs. 1 and 2) have yielded information on the magnitude and frequency of occurrence of gust and maneuver accelerations, and the associated airspeeds and altitudes for several types of airplanes flown by different operators on various routes."

Analysis of behavior of simply supported flat plates compressed beyond the buckling load into the plastic range

Description: From Summary and Introduction: "An analysis is presented of the postbuckling behavior of a simply supported square flat plate with straight edges compressed beyond the buckling load into the plastic range. The method of analysis involves the application of a variational principle of the deformation theory of plasticity in conjunction with computations carried out on a high-speed calculating machine. The results of the analysis are presented in the form of curves showing the variation of deformations, stress distribution, average compressive stress, and effective width with the applied unit shortening."

Analysis of ear formation in deep-drawn cups

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this paper is to show that the number and location of ears can be computed on the basis of single-crystal behavior and a knowledge of the orientation of the polycrystalline aggregate. Although the proposed method is a general one, only face-centered cubic metals are considered in this paper."

Analysis of fully developed turbulent heat transfer and flow in an annulus with various eccentricities

Description: From Introduction: "Most of the existing analyses for turbulent flow and heat transfer in passages have been confined to circular tubes or parallel plates (refs. 1 to 5). In reference 6, temperature distributions for rectangular and triangular ducts were calculated by using experimental velocity distributions and average heat-transfer coefficients. Some work on the calculation of the velocity and shear-stress distributions in corners is reported in reference 7."

Analysis of laminar forced-convection heat transfer in entrance region of flat rectangular ducts

Description: From Introduction: "Beyond the position where the boundary layer treatment can no longer be used, curves have been faired to connect the Nusselt number results of the present analysis with those of reference 3, in which a parabolic velocity profile is assumed throughout the entire duct length. So that a comparison could be made with the results of reference 3, the boundary layer analysis was used to study the development of the temperature profile associated with a parabolic velocity profile throughout."

Analysis of the horizontal-tail loads measured in flight on a multiengine jet bomber

Description: From Introduction: "The primary objectives of the present paper are to report the horizontal-tail-loads measurements for configuration B which have not previously been reported and to summarize the horizontal-tail-loads results obtained with both configurations. The manner in which the aerodynamic-loads data were analyzed to include structural temperature effects and fuselage flexibility effects constitutes an important part of the present paper. "

An Analysis of the Stability and Ultimate Compressive Strength of Short Sheet-Stringer Panels with Special Reference to the Influence of Riveted Connection Between Sheet and Stringer

Description: A method of strength analysis of short sheet-stringer panels subjected to compression is presented which takes into account the effect that the riveted attachments between the plate and the stiffeners have on the strength of the panels. An analysis of experimental data shows that panel strength is highly influenced by rivet pitch, diameter, and location and that the degree of influence for a given riveting depends on the panel configuration and panel material.

Analytic determination of the discharge coefficients of flow nozzles

Description: From Introduction: "In rounded-approach nozzles with discharge coefficients close to unity, the frictional effects are concentrated in the boundary layer. A method of obtaining an analytical relation among the discharge coefficient, Reynolds number, and the nozzle geometry by utilization of elementary boundary-layer theory is presented herein."

Analytical determination of effect of water injection on power output of turbine-propeller engine

Description: From Introduction: "References 1 and 2 indicate that the sea-level static thrust of a centrigual-flow-type turbojet engine may be increased about 25 percent by use of liquid injection. Reference 3 indicates that greater thrust augmentation is possible at a compressor pressure ratio of 11 than of 4."
