Additional Experiments With Flat-Top Wing- Body Combinations at High Supersonic Speeds

Description: Memorandum presenting an experimental study of the effects of several variations in configuration geometry on the aerodynamic characteristics of flat-top wing-body combinations. Generally, the configurations consist of one half of a body of revolution mounted beneath a wing of essentially arrow plan form. Results regarding the effect of trailing-edge sweep, effect of the addition of auxiliary bodies, effect of tip-flap deflection, effect of dihedral, effect of leading-edge sweep, effect of fuselage fineness ratio, effect of fuselage profile shape, and static longitudinal stability characteristics are provided.

Adhesive and protective characteristics of ceramic coating A-417 and its effect on engine life of forged Refractaloy-26 (AMS 5760) and cast stellite 21 (AMS 5385) turbine blades

Description: The adhesive and protective characteristics of National Bureau of Standards Coating A-417 were investigated, as well as the effect of the coating on the life of forged Refractaloy 26 and cast Stellite 21 turbine blades. Coated and uncoated blades were run in a full-scale J33-9 engine and were subjected to simulated service operations consisting of consecutive 20-minute cycles (15 min at rated speed and approximately 5 min at idle). The ceramic coating adhered well to Refractaloy 26 and Stellite 21 turbine blades operated at 1500 degrees F. The coating also prevented corrosion of the Refractaloy 26, a corrosion-sensitive nickel-base alloy, and of the Stellite 21, a relatively corrosion-resistant cobalt-base alloy. Although the coating prevented corrosion of both alloys, it had no apparent effect on blade life.

Aerodynamic characteristics at transonic speeds of a 69 degree delta wing with a triangular plan-form control having a skewed hinge axis and an overhang balance: transonic-bump method

Description: From Introduction: "Presented in this paper are the results of an investigation of a semispan model of a delta wing with 60^o sweepback at the leading edge which was equipped with a large triangular control having an overhang balance mounted on a skewed hinge axis. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a delta wing with a control which was designed to provide aerodynamic balance at zero control deflection based on the span load distribution of reference 1."

Aerodynamic characteristics including pressure distribution of a fuselage and three combinations of the fuselage with swept-back wings at high subsonic speeds

Description: From Introduction: "The wings were tested in combination with fuselage similar to the one used in the 7- by 10-foot wind-tunnel investigations. The results are reported herein and are compared with results for three similar model wings on the transonic bump (references 1, 2, and 3)."

Aerodynamic characteristics of a 0.04956-scale model of the Convair F-102B airplane at Mach numbers of 1.41, 1.61, and 2.01: COORD No. AF-231

Description: Report discussing testing of a scale model of the Convair F-102B to determine its aerodynamic characteristics at several Mach numbers. Four basic body modifications and two afterbody configurations were evaluated.The body modifications were all found to slightly reduce values of minimum drag, but did not cause a change in the static stability and lift-curve-slope values compared to the F-102A.

Aerodynamic characteristics of a wing with quarter-chord line swept back 60 degrees, aspect ratio 2, taper ratio 0.6, and NACA 65A006 airfoil section : transonic bump method

Description: From Introduction: "This paper presents the results of the investigation of the wing-alone and wing-fuselage configurations employing a wing with the quarter-chord line swept back 60^o, aspect ratio 2, taper ratio 0.6, and an NACA 65A006 airfoil section parallel to the free stream."

Aerodynamic control of supersonic inlets for optimum performance

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this paper is to discuss and evaluate some of the input signals or control parameters which have been experimentally employed to operate turbojet inlet-control systems. These include the normal-shock position, the oblique-shock position, and the diffuser-exit Mach number. The discussion is based on results obtained at the NACA Lewis laboratory during control investigations of ram-jet engines (ref. 1 to 5) and during a study on the control of a supersonic inlet for the J34 turbojet engine (refs 6 and 7)."

Aerodynamic Loads on an External Store Adjacent to an Unswept Wing at Mach Numbers Between 0.75 and 1.96

Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation in the blowdown tunnel of the pressure tunnel to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a sting-mounted Douglas Aircraft Company store in the presence of, but not attached to, an unswept semispan cantilevered wing of aspect ratio 4.0. The influence of the store on the aerodynamic characteristics of the wing was also obtained.

Altitude performance of a full-scale turbojet engine using pentaborane fuels

Description: From Introduction: "The data presented herein include the standard engine performance parameters of net thrust, specific fuel consumption, and engine total-pressure ratio that reflect the performance available from the use of pentaborane as a fuel. The influence of the boric oxide deposits from the high-concentration pentaborane fuels on engine component performance is presented."

Altitude performance of annular combustor type turbojet engine with JFC-2 fuel

Description: An investigation was made comparing the performance of JFC-2 fuel and unleaded, clear gasoline in a 3000-pound-thrust turbojet engine. The JFC-2 fuel was a blend of percent diesel fuel and 25 percent aviation gasoline. Engine combustion efficiency was equal to that obtained with gasoline at rated engine speed and altitudes up to 35,000 feet, but at lower engine speeds or at higher altitudes the JFC-2 fuel gave lower combustion efficiency. No discernible difference was obtained in starting or low-speed combustiion blow-out characteristics of the two fuels. Turbine-discharge radial temperature profiles were nearly the same at altitudes up to 35,000 feet.

Altitude-Test-Chamber Investigation of the Endurance and Performance Characteristics of the J65-W-7 Engine at a Mach Number of 2.0

Description: "An investigation of the endurance characteristics, at high Mach number, of the J65-W-7 engine was made in an altitude chamber at the Lewis laboratory. The investigation was made to determine whether this engine can be operated at flight conditions of Mach 2 at 35,000-feet altitude (inlet temperature, 250 F) as a limited-service-life engine. Failure of the seventh-stage aluminum compressor blades occurred in both engines tested and was attributed to insufficient strength of the blade fastenings at the elevated temperatures" (p. 1).
