Experimental stress analysis of stiffened cylinders with cutouts : pure bending

Description: Bending tests were made on a cylindrical semimonocoque shell of circular cross section. The cylinder was tested without a cutout and then with a rectangular cutout which was successively enlarged through six sizes varying from 30 degrees to 130 degrees in circumference and from 1 to 2 bays in length. Strain measurements were made with resistance-type wire strain gages near the cutout on the stringers, the skin, and the rings for each size of cutout, and the stresses obtained are presented in tables.

Experimental stress analysis of stiffened cylinders with cutouts.pure torsion

Description: Torsion tests were made on a cylindrical semimonocoque shell of circular cross section. The cylinder was first tested without a cutout, and then with a rectangular cutout which was successively enlarged through six sizes varying from 30 degrees to 130 degrees in circumference and from 1 to 2 bays in length. Strain measurements were made with resistance-type wire strain gages near the cutout on the stringers, the skin, and the rings for each size of cutout, and the stresses obtained are presented in tables.

Experimental stress analysis of stiffened cylinders with cutouts : shear load

Description: A cylindrical semimonocoque shell of circular cross section was mounted as a cantilever and loaded by a direct shear at the tip. The cylinder was tested with no cutout, with a rectangular cutout on the tension side, and with the cutout centered on the neutral axis on one side of the cylinder. The cutout was successively enlarged through six sizes varying from 30 degrees to 130 degrees in circumference and from 1 and 2 bays in length. Strain measurements were made with resistance-type wire strain gages near the cutout on the stringers, the skin, and the rings for each case, and the stresses obtained are presented in tables.

Approximate methods for calculating the flow about nonlifting bodies of revolution at high supersonic airspeeds

Description: Explicit expressions are developed which yield the Mach number and pressure distributions on the surfaces of pointed nonlifting bodies of revolution operating at high supersonic airspeeds and at values of the hypersonic similarity parameter (ratio of free-stream Mach number to slenderness ratio) greater than 1. Very simple explicit expressions are obtained for these distributions in the special case of slender bodies. In the case of cones, the analytic solutions accurately define the entire flow field over a wide range of free-stream Mach numbers and apex angles.

Comparison between theoretical and experimental stresses in circular semimonocoque cylinders with rectangular cutouts

Description: Comparisons are made between a theory for calculating stresses about rectangular cutouts in circular cylinders of semimonocoque construction published in NACA-TN-3200 and previously published NACA experimental data. The comparisons include stresses in the stringers and shear stresses in the center of the shear panels in the neighborhood of the cutout. The theory takes into account the bending flexibility of the rings in the structure, and this factor is found to be important in the calculation of stresses about cutouts. In general, when the ring flexibility is considered, good agreement is exhibited between the calculated and experimental results. (author).

Smoke study of nozzle secondary flows in a low-speed turbine

Description: Still and motion pictures were made of boundary-layer and wake secondary-flow phenomena visualized by smoke. Two annular cascades of turbine nozzles were used, both designed for constant discharge angle but differing in blade shape and suction-surface velocity distribution. Flows were similar to those obtained with pressure and angle measurements at near-sonic airspeeds. Boundary-layer cross-channel and trailing-edge radial flows caused vortices and an accumulation of low-momentum air at the hub, which may affect flow in following blade rows. Motion of a downstream rotor blade row produced pulsations in trailing-edge radial flow. The motion-picture supplement may be obtained on loan from NACA Headquarters, Washington, D.C.

Solutions of laminar-boundary-equations which result in specific-weight-flow profiles locally exceeding free-stream values

Description: Revised solutions of the laminar-boundary-layer equations for cases which involved cooling at the wall combined with large pressure gradients in the main stream produced specific-weight-flow profiles which locally exceeded free-stream values. Heat-transfer and friction coefficients, boundary-layer thicknesses, and velocity, temperature, and specific-weight-flow distributions resulting from the revised solutions are presented for Euler numbers of 0.5 and 1, stream-to-wall temperature ratios of 2 and 4, and cooling-air flow rates through porous walls designated by flow parameters of 0, -0.5, and -1.

Some effects of exposure to exhaust-gas streams on emittance and thermoelectric power of bare-wire platinum rhodium - platinum thermocouples

Description: Thermocouples were exposed to exhaust gases from the combustion of propane, 72-octane gasoline, and JP-4 fuel. Exposure increased the emissivity of the thermocouple wire, which increased its radiation error. Two methods are presented for determining the emittance of the wires. The emissivity of a clean platinum rhodium-platinum thermocouple was approximately 0.2 in the temperature range investigated, while the emittance of an exposed thermocouple coated with exhaust residue was about 0.5. The exposure caused negligible change in the thermoelectric power of the thermocouples.
