Rocket-Model Measurements of Zero-Lift Damping in Roll of the Bell MX-776 Missile at Mach Numbers from 0.6 to 1.56

Description: The zero-lift damping in roll of the Bell MX-776 missile has been measured by a sting-mounted rocket-model technique at Mach numbers from 0.6 to 1.56. The damping-in-roll data, in general, show no unusual variation with Mach number. Aileron rolling-moment effectiveness derived from these data and previously obtained rolling-effectiveness data appear reasonable,.

Rocket thrust variation with foamed liquid propellants

Description: An analysis is presented on a method for varying rocket thrust by varying the bulk density of the propellants. This density variation was accomplished by uniformly dispersing an inert, insoluble gas in the liquid propellants. Only qualitative agreement with theory was obtained from preliminary experiments with a 1000-pound-thrust ammonia - nitric acid rocket engine; the required experimental gas-flow rates were two to six times greater than those predicted by theory. It was demonstrated, however, that this method of rocket-thrust variation is feasible.

Role of Ionizztion in Radiatin Annealing

Description: The role of ionization in the phenomenon of" radiation annealing" of graphite has been studied by using a I-MeV electron beam. Changes in the C-axis of a sample with a Hanford irradiation of 460 Mwd/ct were studied. Two thermal anneals of 4 hours each at 350{degree}C proved sufficient to complete the thermal annealing at this temperature. The samples were then irradiated for 7 {1I2} hrs at a temperature of 340 {degree}c. The samples received an irradiation of 47 microampere-hours, equivalent in ionization to an exposure of 200 Mwd/ct in a Hanford reactor. No changes were noted as a result of the electron bombardment. It is concluded that the ionization is not of major importance in radiation annealing.

Description: The uses of radioactive isotopes in medical research can be conveniently divided into three principal categories; namely, the applications as tracers for the study of metabolic phenomena, as diagnostic aids in clinical medicine, and finally their role in therapy. Frequently radioisotopes available from the chain-reacting pile do not have a sufficient degree of specific activity for satisfactory use. A number of radioisotopes which can be produced with high specific activity in the pile possess half-lives too short to be of any practical value. Then, there are a few cases in which the desired radioisotope may be made in the pile with high specific activity, but concomitantly there is formed another radioisotope of the same element whose half-life is of such duration as to render its use hazardous in man. Finally, there are several elements of biological and medical interest whose radioactive isotopes can be produced only by the cyclotron.

Roll Cladding Uranium-Zirconium and Uranium-Zirconium-Niobium Alloys with Zircaloy-2 for Plate-Type Fuel Elements

Description: From Abstract: "Investigations were made of alternate methods of bonding fuel shapes and the use of alternate core alloys in flat plates. Alternations and additions were made to development facilities needed to fabricate roll-clad plates for the EBWR core. Pilot production of EWBR-type plates proved that the plate cladding process could be adapted to production facilities."

Rough-water impact-load investigation of a chine-immersed V-bottom model having a dead-rise angle of 10 degrees

Description: A hydrodynamic rough-water impact-loads investigation of a fixed-trim V-bottom float with a beam-loading coefficient of 5.78 and dead-rise angle of 10 degrees was made at the Langley impact basin. The size of the waves varied from approximately 10 to 60 feet in length and 1 to 2 feet in height. Time histories were obtained showing the position of the model relative to the wave throughout the impact and typical examples are presented. The load coefficient was found to vary primarily with the slope of the impacting wave.

Rough-Water Tests of Models of the Vosper and Plum Planing Boats

Description: Models of two types of high-speed surface craft were tested in Langley tank no. 1 to obtain rough-water data for an evaluation by the David Taylor .Model Basin of the relative merits of the designs. Time-history records were obtained of trim, rise, and normal acceleration at two points in the hulls for various speeds and two sizes of waves.

Description: The bunnout heat flux and friction factors for rough surfaces were measured for vertical tubes cooled by downward flow of water. An increase in the burnout heat flux of as much as l00% over a smooth surface was obtained at the same coolant velocity, temperature, and pressure. A nat gain of as much as 80% in heat flux at burnout is possible if the coolant channel is widened to permit the same flow at the same pumping requirements as a smooth surface. The results of 50 experiments were correlated empirically, and may be expressed by an equation. (auth)
