Aerodynamic characteristics of several flap-type trailing-edge controls on a trapezoidal wing at Mach numbers of 1.61 and 2.01

Description: Report presenting an investigation at Mach numbers of 1.61 and 2.01 to determine the control effectiveness and hinge-moment characteristics for a series of 25.4-percent-chord trailing-edge controls on a trapezoidal wing with a 23 degree sweptback leading edge, aspect ratio of 3.1, and taper ratio of 0.4. Pressure distribution and hinge-moment measurements were made at a range of angles of attack and control deflections. Results regarding effect of control deflection, effect of wing angle of attack, effect of Reynolds number, effect of trailing-edge thickness, effect of hinge-line gap, effect of Mach number, and effect of control size and location are provided.

Aerodynamic Forces and Moments on a Large Ogive-Cylinder Store at Various Locations Below the Fuselage Center Line of a Swept-Wing Bomber Configuration at a Mach Number of 1.61

Description: A supersonic wind-tunnel investigation on store interference has been conducted in the Langley 4- by 4-foot supersonic pressure tunnel at a Mach number of 1.61. Forces and moments were measured on a large ogive-cylinder store in the presence of a 45 deg swept-wing-fuselage bomber configuration for a number of store locations below the fuselage center line. Results of the investigation show that large variations of store lift, drag, and pitch occur with changes in store or airplane angle of attack, store vertical location, and store horizontal location. The variation of the store forces and moments with respect to the chordwise location of the wing plan form indicates that the wing is a large factor in producing the interference loads on the store. Comparison of data for underfuselage and underwing store locations at an angle of attack of 0 deg showed maximum store drag interferences of similar magnitudes, but showed considerably smaller maximum interference on store lift an pitching moments for underfuselage store locations.

Analytical evaluation of effect of equivalence ratio inlet-air temperature and combustion pressure on performance of several possible ram-jet fuels

Description: The results of an analytical investigation of the theoretical air specific impulse performance and adiabatic combustion temperatures of several possible ram-jet fuels over a range of equivalence ratios, inlet-air temperatures, and combustion pressures, is presented herein. The fuels include octane-1, 50-percent-magnesium slurry, boron, pentaborane, diborane, hydrogen, carbon, and aluminum. Thermal effects from high combustion temperatures were found to effect considerably the combustion performance of all the fuels. An increase in combustion pressure was beneficial to air specific impulse at high combustion temperatures. The use of these theoretical data in engine operation and in the evaluation of experimental data is described.

Component performance investigation of J71 experimental turbine 7: effect of first-stator adjustment; over-all performance of J71 turbine with 87-percent-design stator area

Description: The performance results, as well as a compressor-turbine match point study based on a particular mode of engine operation, are compared with those previously obtained with the same turbine having first-stator areas 70, 95.6, and 132 percent of design. Maximum efficiencies for all turbine configurations were high, on the order of 87 to 89 percent. The efficiencies obtained at the match points for the 87-, 95.6-, and 132-percent turbines were slightly lower. No match point for the 70-percent turbine was obtained because, with first-stator areas less than 75.5 percent of design, the turbine would develop insufficient work to drive the compressor at the match point.

Concluding Report on Free-Spinning and Recovery Characteristics of a 1/24-Scale Model of the Grumman F11F-1 Airplane, TED No. NACA AD 395

Description: An investigation has been completed in the Langley 20-foot free-spinning tunnel on a l/24-scale model of the Grumman F11F-1 airplane to determine its spin and recovery characteristics. An interim report, Research Memorandum SL55G20, was published earlier and the present report concludes the presentation of results of the investigation. Primarily, the present report presents results obtained with engine gyroscopic moments simulated on the model. Also, the current results were obtained with a revised larger vertical tail recently incorporated on the airplane. It was difficult to obtain developed spins on the model when the spin direction was in the same sense as that of the engine rotation (right spin on the airplane). The developed spins obtained were very oscillatory and the recoveries were unsatisfactory. These results were similar to those previously reported for which engine rotation was not simulated. When the spin direction was in the opposite sense (left spin on the airplane), however, developed spins were readily obtainable. Recoveries from these spins also were unsatisfactory. Satisfactory recoveries were obtained on the model, however, when rudder reversal was accompanied by extension of small canards near the nose of the airplane or by deflection of the horizontal tail differentially with the spin.

Data presentation of force characteristics of several engine-strut-body configurations at Mach numbers of 1.8 and 2.0

Description: Investigation to determine lift, drag, and pitching-moment characteristics of several engine-strut-body combinations was conducted over range of angles of attack from 0 degrees to 10 degrees at Mach numbers of 1.8 and 2.0. The average Reynolds number based on body length was 28x106. Data are presented without analysis and indicate decreases in minimum drag and lift curve slope with decreasing in minimum drag and lift curve slope with decreasing strut length. Decreases in minimum drag also noted with rear-ward movement of engines.

Development of metal-bonding adhesives with improved heat-resistant properties

Description: From Summary: "Results are reported of current studies at the Forest Products Laboratory to develop a metal-bonding adhesive with greater resistance to temperatures up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit that is easier to use than present ones. Most promising is a formulation of phenol and epoxy resins modified with hexamethylenetetramine and supplied for use as a dry tape supported on a glass-mat base."

Effect of Some External Crosswise Stiffeners on the Heat Transfer and Pressure Distribution on a Flat Plate at Mach Numbers of 0.77, 1.39, and 1.98. Coord. No. AF-AM-69

Description: The heat transfer and pressures on the surfaces of several flat-plate models with various external crosswise stiffener arrangements are presented. The tests were made in a free jet at Mach numbers of 0.77, 1.39, and 1.98 for Reynolds numbers of 3 x 10(exp 6), 7 x 10(exp 6), and 14 x 10(exp 6), respectively, based on a length of 1 foot. The addition of external crosswise stiffeners to the flat-plate models caused large pressure and heat-transfer variations on the surfaces of the models.

Effect of Wing Height and Dihedral on the Lateral Stability Characteristics at Low Lift of a 45 Deg Swept-Wing Airplane Configuration as Obtained from Time-Vector Analyses of Rocket-Propelled-Model Flights at Mach Numbers from 0.7 to 1.3

Description: From Summary: "Lateral-stability flight tests were made over the Mach number range from 0.7 to 1.3 of models of three airplane configurations having 45 degree sweptback wings. One model had a high wing; one, a low wing; and one, a high wing with cathedral. The models were otherwise identical. The lateral oscillations of the models resulting from intermittent yawing disturbances were interpreted in terms of full-scale airplane flying qualities and were further analyzed by the time-vector method to obtain values of the lateral stability derivatives."
