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 load distribution over a 45 degree swept wing having a spoiler-slot-deflector aileron and other spoiler ailerons for Mach numbers from 0.60 to 1.03

Description: Report discussing an investigation of a 45 degree swept-back-wing-body combination with flap spoiler ailerons, deflector ailerons, and a spoiler-slot-deflector aileron. The pressures were measured from Mach numbers 0.60 to 1.03 and at various angles of attack.

Analysis of horizontal-tail loads in pitching maneuvers on a flexible swept-wing jet bomber

Description: From Introduction: "The analysis of flight data in the present report is, to a large extent, based on analyses and information contained in references 1 and 2 for wing deflections, reference 3 for horizontal-tail parameters, reference 4 for airplane lift-curve slopes and angles of zero lift, and reference 5 for wing centers of pressure."

Comparison and evaluation of two model techniques used in predicting bomb-release motions

Description: From Summary: "For the purpose of calculating bomb trajectories, forces and moments have been measured on bombs of three fineness ratios in the presence of a swept-wing fighter-bomber configuration at a Mach number of 1.61. Trajectories thus obtained have been compared with those from dynamic model tests and an analysis has been made to determine the source of errors and to suggest improvements in both techniques." Basic data plots with contour maps and bomb trajectories are provided.

Effect of overheating on creep-rupture properties of S-816 alloy at 1,500 F

Description: The effects of overheats to temperatures of 1650, 1800, 1900, and 2000 F were evaluated in terms of the changes in creep-rupture characteristics at 1500 F of S-816 alloy under stresses within the range of rupture strengths of the alloy for 100 to 1000 hours. Overheat periods were predominantly of 2-minute duration and were applied cyclically at approximately 5- or 12-hour intervals. The possible damage from overheating was believed to include internal metal structure changes induced by exposure to the higher temperatures and loss of life by creep if stress was present during the overheats.

The effects of boundary-layer separation over bodies of revolution with conical tail flares

Description: The magnitude and the effects of boundary-layer separation on normal-force-curve slopes, centers of pressure, pressure distributions, and lift and drag coefficients were determined for various bodies of revolution with conical tail flares at Mach numbers from 3.0 to 6.3. Some of the experimental results are compared to theoretical predictions of the aerodynamic characteristics of the bodies.

Experimental Droplet Impingement on Four Bodies of Revolution

Description: The rate and. area of cloud droplet impingement on four bodies of revolution were obtained experimentally in the NACA Lewis icing tunnel with a dye-tracer technique. The study included spheres, ellipsoidal forebodies of fineness ratios of 2.5 and 3.0, and a conical forebody of 300 included angle and covered a range of angles of attack from 0? to 60 and rotational speeds up to 1200 rpm. The data were obtained at an airspeed of 157 knots and are correlated by dimensionless impingement parameters. In general, the experimental data show that the local and total impingement rates and impingement limits of bodies of revolution are primarily functions of the modified inertia parameters, the body shape, and fineness ratio. Both the local impingement rate and impingement limits depend upon the angle of attack. Rotation of the bodies had a negligible effect on the impingement characteristics except for an averaging effect at angle of attack. For comparable diameters the bluffer bodies had the largest total impingement efficiency, but the finer and sharper bodies had the largest values of maximum local impingement efficiency and, in most cases, the largest limits of impingement. In most cases, the impingement characteristics were less than those calculated from theoretical trajectories; in general, however, fairly good agreement was obtained between the experimental and theoretical impingement characteristics.

Heat-Transfer and Pressure Measurements from a Flight Test of a 1/18-Scale Model of the Titan Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Up to a Mach Number of 3.95 and Reynolds Number Per Foot of 23 by 10 to the 6th Power

Description: Report discussing the boundary-layer transition and heat-transfer measurements for a model of the Titan intercontinental ballistic missile up to a specified Mach and Reynolds number. Boundary-layer transition was observed on the nose of the missile. The drag coefficient for a variety of Mach numbers was also obtained.
