Uranium Deposits of the Carlile Quadrangle, Crook County, Wyoming

Description: From abstract: The uranium deposits in the Carlile quadrangle, southwestern Crook County, Wyo., are in relatively flat-lying sandstone beds in the lower part of the Inyan Kara group of Early Cretaceous age. The Carlile mine has the largest deposit in the quadrangle; the ore minerals are carnotite and tyuyamunite associated with carbonaceous material in a sandstone lens.

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)."

A Fuselage Addition to Delay Drag-Rise Mach Number of Subsonic Airplanes at Lifting Conditions

Description: The addition of fuselage volume, concentrated on top of the forward portion of the fuselage, for the purpose of delaying the drag-rise Mach number of subsonic airplanes at lifting conditions is investigated. The additions have been designed on the basis of the area rule and other important considerations to provide greater practicability of application compared with shapings previously investigated. The addition delayed the drag-rise Mach number by an increment of approximately 0.03 for a configuration having a wing with moderate thickness and 35 deg of sweepback at a lift coefficient of 0.3. A lesser delay was obtained for a configuration with a thicker wing. The additions increase the nonlinearities of the variations of pitching moment with lift,.

Two-dimensional airfoil characteristics of four NACA 6A-series airfoils at transonic Mach numbers up to 1.25

Description: A two-dimensional wind-tunnel investigation of the flow and force characteristics of four NACA 6A-series airfoils with thickness ratios of 4, 6, and 9 percent has been conducted in the Langley airfoil test apparatus at at transonic Mach numbers between 0.8 and 1.25. The Reynolds number range for these tests varied from 2.6 x 10(6) to 2.8 x 10(6). As was expected, the airfoils exhibited a smooth transition in force coefficients from a Mach number of 1.0 to the values obtained at the higher speeds. Lift-curve slope and maximum lift-drag ratio correlated very well on a basis of the transonic similarity laws at Mach numbers above 1.0, but below that value the correlation was not good. The measured effect of thickness on the drag coefficient at supersonic speeds was less than that predicted by the transonic similarity laws. Good correlation of the drag coefficients was obtained by reducing the exponent of the thickness term from the theoretical value of 1.67 to 1.50. This change did not affect the correlation at subsonic speeds, which was good for either case.
