Aerodynamics of the carburetor air scoop and the engine cowling of a single-engine torpedo-bomber-type airplane

Description: From Introduction: "An investigation of the power-plant installation of a single-engine torpedo-bomber-type airplane has been conducted in the NACA Cleveland altitude wind tunnel at the request of the Bureau of Aeronautics, Navy Department. A similar investigation was previously conducted on a three-tenths scale mock-up of the forward portion of the fuselage of this airplane in the Langley 20-foot tunnel. (See reference 1)."

Air-consumption parameters for automatic mixture control of aircraft engines

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this analysis was to investigate the use of function of intake-manifold temperature and pressure, exhaust back pressure, and engine speed in place of a ventri as a means of measuring engine air consumption and to determine if this function is suitable for automatic mixture control."

Airfoil-contour modifications based on (epsilon)-curve method of calculating pressure distribution

Description: From Introduction: "Certain alternations of a qualitative nature may be performed in spite of the fact that a pressure change cannot be prescribed. It is the purpose of this paper to indicate a method by which qualitative alternation may be performed. It will be noted that the present method of contour modification will serve the intended purpose of the inverse method."

Airspeed fluctuations as a measure of atmospheric turbulence

Description: From Introduction: "Increments in structural loads due to atmospheric turbulence can be accurately expressed in terms of flight speed and effective gust velocities (reference 4). Data from which the effective gust velocities could be computed were also obtained during the flights of the XC-35 airplane. These data have been used to determine the significance of the fluctuations in the pilot's indicated-airspeed readings in relation to structural loads to due to atmospheric turbulence."

Altitude rating of electrical apparatus

Description: From Introduction: "This paper studies the effect of altitude on the ratings of rotating electric machines and after determining the fundamental principles involved, discusses these in relation to the application of such machines in modern aircraft."

Altitude-wind-tunnel tests of power-plant installation in jet-propelled fighter

Description: From Introduction: "The research program included clean-up tests (unpublished data) and stability and control tests (reference 1) made in the NACA Langley full-scale tunnel. An investigation of the aerodynamic characteristics of the power-plant installation in the Cleveland altitude wind tunnel is discussed in this report."

Aluminum-zinc-magnesium-copper casting alloys

Description: From Introduction: "This paper contains data on the mechanical properties of sand-cast test bars having a considerable range in zinc, magnesium, and copper content and more detailed data on the properties and foundry characteristics of an aluminum-zinc-magnesium-copper alloy having a preferred composition for high strength and ductility."

Analysis of a thermal ice-prevention system for wing leading-edge landing-light installations

Description: From Introduction: "A typical ice formation on a wing leading-edge-type light installation is shown in figure 1. Although the primary purpose of this analytic investigation was to determine the practicability of providing a landing-light thermal ice-prevention system which could be incorporated with the wing leading-edge thermal ice-prevention system of the B-17 F airplane, the analysis has been developed in a general form for future application to similar deigns.

Analysis of Effect of Rolling Pull-Outs on Wing and Aileron Loads of a Fighter Airplane

Description: An analysis was made to determine the effect of rolling pull-out maneuvers on the wing and aileron loads of a typical fighter airplane, the P-47B. The results obtained indicate that higher loads are imposed upon wings and ailerons because of the rolling pull-out maneuver, than would be obtained by application of the loading requirements to which the airplane was designed. An increase of 102 lb or 15 percent of wing weight would be required if the wing were designed for rolling pull-out maneuver. It was also determined that the requirements by which the aileron was originally designed were inadequate.
