Bending with large deflection of a clamped rectangular plate with length-width ratio of 1.5 under normal pressure

Description: The Von Karman equations for a thin flat plate with large deflections are solved for the special case of a plate with clamped edges having a ratio of length to width of 1.5 and loaded by uniform normal pressure. Center deflections, membrane stresses, and extreme-fiber bending stresses are given as a function of pressure for center deflections up to twice the thickness of the plate. For small deflections the results coincide with those obtained by Hencky from the linear theory. The maximum stresses and center deflection at high pressures differ less than 3 percent from those derived by Bostnov for an infinitely long plate with clamped edges. This agreement suggests that clamped plates with a length-to-width ratio greater than 1.5 may be reared as infinitely long plates for purposes of design.

Pressure distribution on wings in reversed flow

Description: The series of pressure distribution measurements at three test sections on NACA airfoils 2212 and M6 within 170 to 210 angles of attack in reversed flow proved to be largely independent of the profile form. In contradiction to the pressure distribution in normal flow considerable negative pressure from the upper surface spills over onto the lower surface, and vice versa, even in the zone of sound flow. The results are presented as chord-wise pressure and load distribution. The spanwise lift distribution and the total lift coefficients of the wing obtained by integration manifest approximate agreement with the behavior of a diagonally disposed flat plate. By consideration of the ground effect (represented by a flat wall) the lower surface of the wing shows an increase in the low pressure.

Recent results in rocket flight technique

Description: The concept of the effective ejection velocity of a rocket engine is explained and the magnitude of the attainable ejection velocity theoretically and experimentally investigated. Velocities above 3000 meters per second (6700 mph) are actually measured and the possibilities of further increases shown.

Theoretical solution of profile drag

Description: After a survey of the customary procedures for appraising the profile drag in which pressure drag was discounted and the methods for computing the laminar and turbulent friction flow, the author proposes a method by which the pressure drag can be computed with the aid of the displacement thickness of the frictional layer. The method is restricted to the case where the effects, caused by separation of frictional layer, are small. Then the total profile drag can be expressed solely by quantities derived from the velocity distribution in the frictional layer immediately at the trailing edge.
