Abnormal grain growth in nickel-base heat-resistant alloys

Description: From Introduction: "The data included in this report for Nimonic 80A alloy, for instance, represent experiments carried out to help clarify a production problem of grain-size control in an alloy which has been extensively used. The general procedure of the investigation was to carry out controlled laboratory experiments on samples of bar stock to find conditions of heating and hot-working which resulted in abnormal grain growth."

Aerodynamic heating of a thin, unswept, untapered, multiweb, aluminum-alloy wing at Mach numbers up to 2.67 as determined from a free-flight investigation of a rocket-propelled model

Description: From Introduction: "The heat-transfer data calculated from measured temperatures are compared with values calculated by the theory of Van Driest for a flat plate with laminar and turbulent boundary layers. In addition, the heat-transfer data from the flight tests are compared with data obtained from the Langley Structures Research Division of ground tests of an identical wing at a Mach number approximately equal to 1.99 in the pre-flight jet of the Langley Pilotless Aircraft Research Station at Wallops Island, Va. The stream static pressure is maintained at about 1 atmosphere, the free-stream temperature at about 75^o F, and the stagnation temperature at approximately 500 ^o F (ref.1)."

Coal Geology of the White Oak Quadrangle, Magoffin and Morgan Counties, Kentucky

Description: From abstract: The White Oak quadrangle lies near the western edge of the eastern Kentucky coalfield and includes approximately 59 square miles of parts of Magoffin and Morgan Counties, Ky. The outcropping rocks are equivalent to most of the Breathitt formation of Pennsylvanian age. The regional southeast dip of the rocks is interrupted by the Irvine-Paint Creek fault, the Caney anticline, the Grape Creek syncline, and the Johnson Creek fault.

Drilling in the Flatirons Locality, Monument Valley, Arizona

Description: From introduction: A subsurface exploration program was undertaken to investigate the concentration of uranium and vanadium in or near the base of the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation in the Flatirons locality, and to develop criteria whereby adjacent unexplored areas could be evaluated as to potential production capacity from study of geological and mineralogical features at the host rook outcrop. An earlier study of the area by C. G. Evensen of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission had shown that geological conditions favorable to the accumulation of commercial uranium deposits were present in the Flatirons area.

Flood Protection Plans for Cumberland, Maryland & Ridgeley, West Virginia: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Report of a hydraulic model investigation "to determine the most economical method of providing protection for Cumberland and Ridgeley against floods somewhat greater than the flood of March 1936 Specifically, the model was used to determine: the proper sections and grades of channels required to pass the design flood with maximum reductions in flood stages; the minimum heights of levees and walls; and the channel treatment required at bridges to insure the safe passage of floodwaters with minimum alterations to the structures" (p. 4).

An Investigation of the Chattanooga Black Shale of Tennessee as a Source of Uranium Progress Report: July 1, 1956-June 30, 1957

Description: From introduction: The primary aim of this study is to present as complete a geologic picture as possible, of the Chattanooga shale in its outcrop area of the Eastern Highland Rim and the Northern Highland Rim of Tennessee and adjacent Kentucky. Special emphasis has been placed upon the stratigraphic relationships and their implications upon the age and manner of origin of the sediments and upon the origin, source, and distribution of uranium in the shale.
