Knock-Limited Power Outputs from a CFR Engine Using Internal Coolants, 3, Four Alkyl Amines, Three Alkanolamines, Six Amides, and Eight Heterocyclic Compounds

Description: An investigation of the antiknock effectiveness of various additive-water solutions when used as internal coolants has been conducted at the NACA Cleveland laboratory. Nine compounds have been previously run in a CFR engine and the results are presented. In an effort to find a good anti-knock-coolant additive with more desirable physical properties than those of the nine compounds previously investigated, water solutions of four alkyl amines, three alkanolamines, six amides, and eight heterocyclic compounds were investigated and the results are presented.

Application of the analogy between water flow with a free surface and two-dimensional compressible gas flow

Description: From Introduction: "The development of the measuring apparatus and techniques is presented herein. The application of the analogy to flows through nozzles and about circular cylinders at subsonic velocities extending into supercritical range is also presented."

Charts showing relations among primary aerodynamic variables for helicopter-performance estimation

Description: In order to facilitate solutions of the general problem of helicopter selection, the aerodynamic performance of rotors is presented in the form of charts showing relations between primary design and performance variables. By the use of conventional helicopter theory, certain variables are plotted and other variables are considered fixed. Charts constructed in such a manner show typical results, trends, and limits of helicopter performance. Performance conditions considered include hovering, horizontal flight, climb, and ceiling. Special problems discussed include vertical climb and the use of rotor-speed-reduction gears for hovering.

A Comparison of the Lateral Motion Calculated for Tailless and Conventional Airplanes

Description: Theoretical analysts of lateral dynamic motion of tailless and conventional airplanes was made for fighter and heavy transport. Their reactions to a lateral gust and control power required by each for simple maneuvers were determined and compared. Both types of airplanes require almost identical aileron control power to perform a given maneuver; tailless airplane requires about 1-2 to 1-3 directional control power of conventional airplane. Tailless airplane also shows greatest displacement for a given disturbance and has least damping in oscillatory mode.

Foaming volume and foam stability

Description: A method of measuring foaming volume is described and investigated to establish the critical factors in its operation. Data on foaming volumes and foam stabilities are given for a series of hydrocarbons and for a range of concentrations of aqueous ethylene-glycol solutions. It is shown that the amount of foam formed depends on the machinery of its production as well as on properties of the liquid, whereas the stability of the foam produced, within specified mechanical limitations, is primarily a function of the liquid.

Formulas for additional mass corrections to the moments of inertia of airplanes

Description: Formulas are presented for the calculation of the additional mass corrections to the moments of inertia of airplanes. These formulas are of particular value in converting the virtual moments of inertia of airplanes or models experimentally determined in air to the true moments of inertia. A correlation of additional moments of inertia calculated by these formulas with experimental additional moments of inertia obtained from vacuum chamber tests of 40 spin-tunnel models indicates that formulas give satisfactory estimations of the additional moments of inertia.

Gas-Dynamic Investigations of the Pulse-Jet Tube, Parts 1 and 2

Description: Based upon a simplified representation of the mode of operation of the pulse-jet tube, the effect of the influences mentioned in the title were investigated and it will be shown that, for a jet tube with a form designed to be aerodynamically favorable, the ability to operate is at least questionable. This investigation will account for the important practical observation made by Paul Schmidt that the ratio of the effective valve cross-sectional area to the tube cross section may not be of any random magnitude and will explain why at too great flight speeds the jet tube ceases to operate. Chemical an thermodynamic processes (for example, constituents or mode of fuel-air-mixture formation or heat losses) are unimportant in this regard.

Gas-Dynamic Investigations of the Pulse-Jet Tube, Parts 1 and 2

Description: Based upon a simplified representation of the mode of operation of the pulse-jet tube, the effect of the influences mentioned in the title were investigated and it will be shown that, for a jet tube with a fccmndesigned to be aerodynamically favorable, the ability to operate is at least questionable. By taking into account the course of the development of pressure by combustion, a new insight has been obtained into the processes of motion within the jet tube, an insight that explains a number of empirical observations, namely: certain particulars of the sequence of pressure variations; the existence of an optimum valve-opening ratio; the occurrence of an intrusion of air; and the existence of a flight speed above lrhichthe jet tube ceases to operate. At too great an opening ratio or at too great a flight s-peed, the continuous flow through the tube is too predominant over the oscilla~ory process to perinitthe occurrence of an explosion powerful enough to maintain continuous operation. Certain possible means of making the operation of the jet tube more independent of the flight speed and of reducing the flow losses were proposed and discussed.
