Effect of Normal Pressure on the Critical Compressive Stress of Curved Sheet

Description: Results are presented of tests of two specimens tested to study the effect of normal pressure on the critical compressive stress for thin curved sheets. These specimens are designated by their respective rib spacings of 10 inches and 30 inches. The relationship between compressive stress and normal pressure at which buckles disappeared is independent of whether the buckles were made to disappear by increase of normal pressure or decrease of compressive stress.

The Preparation of 2, 2, 4, 4-Tetramethylpentane

Description: Report presenting seven distinct operations in the preparation of 2,2,4,4-tetramethylpentane, including the preparation of di-isobutylene hydrochloride, preparation of dimethylzinc, reaction of dimethylzinc in dry benzene with di-isobutylene hydrochloride, preliminary distillation of the reaction products, treatment of the first distillate with sodium and alcohol, final distillation after appropriate washing of the products, and recovery of the iodine in the zinc residues of II as methyl iodide.

Progress Summary Number 1: Mechanical Properties of Flush-Riveted Joints Submitted by Five Airplane Manufacturers

Description: Summary presenting information on flush-riveted joints for aircraft construction, including the strength, occurrence of defects, and effect of the angle of rivet head. The current tests covers specimens from 15 manufacturers of which 5 series have been completed and are described in this report.

Tests of a Stressed-Carrying Door in Shear

Description: Bulletin presenting testing of a monocoque box with a stress-carrying door made and tested in torsion. The results indicate that if a stress-carrying door and its frame are made sufficiently heavy, the torsional stiffness of the box with the door can be made greater than the torsional stiffness of the box without the cut-out" (p. 1).

A Description of the Ju 88 Airplane Anti-Icing Equipment

Description: Bulletin presenting an examination of a part of the anti-icing equipment for a Ju 88 airplane, including exhaust-air heat exchangers, control valves, air duct system, and air-heated wing panels. Testing was performed on the components and indicated that the thermal ice-prevention equipment can maintain the outer-wing panel free from ice.

Effect of Countersunk Depth on the Tightness of Two Types of Machine-Countersunk Rivet

Description: Bulletin presenting an investigation conducted to determine the effect of countersunk depth on the tightness of two types of machine-countersunk flush rivet. The specimens tested in the study were simple lap joints made by two different riveting methods. The results indicated that roundheaded rivets inserted from the back of the joint with the countersunk heads formed int he driving of the rivets produce tighter joints over a large range of depths than ordinary flush rivets.

Test Data on the Shear Strength of Machine Countersunk-Riveted Joints Assembled by an NACA Flush-Riveting Procedure

Description: Bulletin presenting load-displacement curves for use in establishing allowable-load values for riveted joints assembled by an NACA flush-riveting procedure. Comparative data are also given to show the effect of variations in the procedure on the yield and maximum shear loads for the rivets.

A Study of the Tightness and Flushness of Machine-Countersunk Rivets for Aircraft

Description: Bulletin presenting the results of an investigation to determine possible improvements in the tightness and the flushness of machine-countersunk rivets. Specimens used in the study were simple lap joints made by different riveting methods. The results indicate that a comparison of the quality of machine-countersunk riveted joints on the basis of maximum load alone is not justified.

Application of Balancing Tabs to Ailerons

Description: Analysis was made to determine characteristics required of a balancing-tab system for ailerons in order to reduce aileron stick forces to any desired magnitude. Series of calculations based on section data were made to determine balancing-tab systems of various chord tabs and ailerons that will give, for a particular airplane, zero rate of aileron hinge moment with aileron deflection and yet will produce same maximum rate of roll as a plain unbalanced 15-percent chord aileron of same span. Effects of rolling velocity and of forces in tab link on aileron hinge moments have been included.

Summary of V-G records taken on transport airplanes from 1932 to 1942

Description: Report presenting an analysis of records of more than 134,000 flying hours, which have been received and evaluated in order to bring the V-G recorder data up to date. The analysis of the records is contained in the report. Results indicate that the maximum effective gust velocities for both the land transport airplanes and the flying boats have approached values of 40 feet per second.

Comparison of tightness of 78 degrees machine-countersunk rivets driven in holes prepared with 78 degrees and 82 degrees countersinking tools

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine whether the use of a 78 degree countersinking tool instead of a 82 degree countersinking tool for riveting would substantially alter the conclusion reached in a previous paper regarding the placement of rivets for maximum strength.

Flight investigation of a stall-warning indicator for operation under icing conditions

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine whether some characteristic of the boundary layer could be used to provide warning of the increase in stalling speed of a wing caused by ice formations on the leading edge. Results were analyzed by referring the total pressures at the rake to the free-stream total pressure, static pressure at the rake, free-stream static pressure, and static pressure from wind-tip swiveling head.
