Pressure-Distribution Measurements of a Model of a Davis Wing Section with Fowler Flap Submitted by Consolidated Aircraft Corporation

Description: Wing pressure distribution diagrams for several angles of attack and flap deflections of 0 degrees, 20 degrees, and 40 degrees are presented. The normal force coefficients agree with lift coefficients obtained in previous test of the same model, except for the maximum lifts with flap deflection. Pressure distribution measurements were made at Reynolds Number of about 6,000,000.

Variation with Mach Number of Static and Total Pressures Through Various Screens

Description: Tests were conducted in the Langley 24-inch highspeed tunnel to ascertain the static-pressure and total-pressure losses through screens ranging in mesh from 3 to 12 wires per inch and in wire diameter from 0.023 to 0.041 inch. Data were obtained from a Mach number of approximately 0.20 up to the maximum (choking) Mach number obtainable for each screen. The results of this investigation indicate that the pressure losses increase with increasing Mach number until the choking Mach number, which can be computed, is reached. Since choking imposes a restriction on the mass rate of flow and maximum losses are incurred at this condition, great care must be taken in selecting the screen mesh and wire dimmeter for an installation so that the choking Mach number is.

Tests of a 1/14-scale powered model of the XB-36 airplane in the Langley 19-foot pressure tunnel 1: stalling characteristics and aileron effectiveness of several wing and flap arrangements

Description: Report discussing an investigation into the stalling characteristics, aileron effectiveness, and longitudinal stability of a scale model of the XB-36 airplane. The model was tested with the original configuration as well as with several modifications to the outboard panels and flap arrangement.

The knock-limited performance of several fuels blended with S-2 reference fuel

Description: Report discussing the results of testing conducted to determine the knock-limited performance of fuel blends containing 80 percent of S-2 reference fuel and 20 percent of several exploratory fuels. Butyl acetate, sec-butyl acetate, isopropyl acetate, sec-butyl alcohol, tert-butyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, cyclohexanol, methylcyclohexanol, isobutylcarbinol, sec-butylcarbinol, triethyl borate, and dimethylfuran were examined.

Trends in surface-ignition temperatures

Description: Report discusses the variation of surface-ignition temperature with charge density, fuel-air ratio, and surface-ignition advance. Tests on several fuels were conducted on a supercharged CFR engine to determine surface-ignition temperature as a function of the three variables. It was concluded that surface-ignition temperature is not a satisfactory criterion for differentiating between preignition characteristics of different fuels.

The effect of compression ratio on knock limits of high-performance fuels in a CFR engine 1: blends of triptane and 28-R fuel

Description: Report discussing the knock-limited performance of blends of triptane and 28-R fuel in an F-4 engine at three sets of conditions and three compression ratios. The knock limits of the triptane blends were more sensitive to compression ratio than the 28-R fuel, and the sensitivities of the blends increased as the severity of other engine conditions increased.

The effect of compression ratio on knock limits of high-performance fuels in a CFR engine 3: blends of 2,3-dimethylpentane with 28-R

Description: Report discussing the knock-limited performance of blends of 2,3-dimethylpentane and 23-R fuel in an F-4 engine at three sets of conditions and three compression ratios. The knock-limited performance of 2,3-dimethylpentane has about the same sensitivity to compression ratio and inlet-air temperature as 28-R fuel.

Knock-limited performance of blends of AN-F-28 fuel containing 2 percent aromatic amines 4

Description: Report discussing tests on the effect of 2-percent additions of 13 aromatic amines on the knock-limited performance of 28-R fuel in a CFR engine. The amines tested gave good rich mixture response at standard F-4 operating conditions, but were sensitive to engine severity at lean fuel-air ratios.
