Some effects of small-scale flow disturbance on nozzle-burner flames

Description: Laminar-like and brush-like propane-air flames were obtained when wire grids were used as turbulence generators in a 1/2-inch nozzle burner. The laminar-like flames for grid-disturbed flow had a slightly higher burning velocity than "true" laminar flames (no grid used). The brush-like flames were similar to those obtained with pipe turbulent flow. Their burning-velocity dependence on a "flow disturbance" Reynolds number compared favorably with that obtained for pipe turbulent flames. Hot-wire-anemometer equipment was used to measure the flow disturbance intensity in the cold flow with and without the grids in place.

Some Experiences Regarding the Nonlinearity of Hot Wires

Description: We compare here the results of some experiences with the formulas established in our preceding report 'Nonlinear Theory of a Hot-Wire Anemometer.' We shall show that the nonlinear term plays a role as important as the thermal conduction in the calculation of the thermal inertia of the hot wire.

Some experimental studies of panel flutter at Mach number 1.3

Description: Experimental studies of panel flutter using thin metal plates were conducted at a Mach number of 1.3 to verify its existence and to study the effects of some structural parameters on the flutter characteristics. The effects of tensile forces and buckling were studied on panels clamped front and rear, in addition to initially buckled panels clamped on all four edges. Panel flutter was obtained under controlled laboratory conditions and it was found that tensile forces, shortening the panels, and increasing the bending stiffness were effective means for eliminating flutter. Buckled panels were more susceptible to flutter than unbuckled panels. No apparent systematic trends in the flutter modes or frequencies could be observed.
