The Measurement of Fuel-Air Ratio by Analysis of the Oxidized Exhaust Gas

Description: "An investigation was made to determine a method of measuring fuel-air ratio that could be used for test purposes in flight and for checking conventional equipment in the laboratory. Two single-cylinder test engines equipped with typical commercial engine cylinders were used. The fuel-air ratio of the mixture delivered to the engines was determined by direct measurement of the quantity of air and of fuel supplied and also by analysis of the oxidized exhaust gas and of the normal exhaust gas" (p. 73).

Preignition-limited performance of several fuels

Description: Preignition-limited performance data were obtained on a supercharged CFR engine at two sets of operating conditions over a wide range of fuel-air ratios to determine the preignition characteristics for the following five fuels: s-3 reference fuel, s-3 plus 4 ml. tel per gallon, afd-33(140-p), benzene, and diisobutylene. Maximum thermal-plug temperatures at constant intake-air pressures were also determined to correlate the preignition characteristics of each fuel with its ability to increase general engine-temperature levels. Additional runs were made to compare the preignition-limited performance of triptane, triptane plus 4 ml. tel per gallon, and an-f-28r fuel.

A Study of Thorium Peroxide Sulfate

Description: Abstract. Thorium peroxide was precipitated from thorium nitrate solutions containing varying amounts of sulfate ion and of hydrogen ion. The washed solids were analyzed both wet and dry. Analyses were made for thorium, peroxide oxygen, sulfate, nitrate, and water contents. X-ray powder photographs of the dried samples by W.H. Zachariasen showed the presence of only two phases. When precipitated from high sulfuric acid, the solid phase was isomorphous with Th(OO)SO4.3H20. More weakly acid solutions whose sulfate content was varied over wide limits [SO4--/Th(IV) (in solution before precipitation) = 0.005 to 67.0] yielded a solid, isomorphous with thorium peroxide nitrate and containing 3.0 to 3.8 peroxide oxygen atoms for each thorium atom. The sulfate content of this latter phase varied continuously between the limits SO4--/Th(IV) = 0.34 to 0.01 with nitrate ion present when the sulfate content was very low. This continuous variation in composition is in agreement with the previously proposed structure of this phase.

Cylinder-Temperature Correlation of a Single-Cylinder Liquid-Cooled Engine

Description: "An analysis based on nonboiling forced-convection heat-transfer theory is made of the cooling processes in liquid-cooled engine cylinders. Semiempirical equations that relate the average head and barrel temperatures with the primary engine and coolant parameters are derived. A correlation method based on these equations is applied to data obtained from previously reported investigations, which were conducted over large ranges of engine and coolant conditions with two liquid-cooled cylinders using water and various aqueous ethylene glycol solutions as coolants" (p. 285)

Aerodynamic characteristics at high speeds of a two-blade NACA 10-(3)(062)-045 propeller and of a two-blade NACA 10-(3)(08)-045 propeller

Description: From Introduction: "The aerodynamic characteristics of a series of 10-foot-diameter propellers are being investigated in the Langley 16-foot high-speed tunnel in a comprehensive propeller research program. Using high-critical-speed NACA 16-series airfoil sections (reference 1), these propellers are designed to have Betz minimum induced-energy loss loading (reference 2) for a blade angle of 45^o at the 0.7 radius, when used as a four-blade propeller operating at an advance ratio of approximately 2.1 The ultimate purpose of the program is to determine the influence upon propeller design factors and of compressiblity; the propeller tests reported herein form part of the investigation of the effects of blade-section thickness ratio."

Physics progress report

Description: Difficulty encountered in the preparation of a pure postum sample for vapor pressure measurements with the quartz sickle gauge is tentatively ascribed to the existence of lead postumide. The modifications which have been made since June 1, 1948 in the apparatus for the measurement of vapor pressure by effusion are discussed. The apparatus in its new form is essentially complete and awaits the delivery of a Dewar flask before measurements are begun. In the preparation of a sample for the determination of the purity of postum with the vacuum balance, difficulties similar to those in Section 1 above were encountered. Resistivity of Postum - No progress. Ninety-one neutron counts were made for other groups. A specially shaped postum sample has been prepared for use in the attempts to flatten the response of the lead-geometry gamma counter. Patterns obtained from the recently acquired sample of elemental postum show the slight increase in unit cell size previously reported; however, the formation of the PbQ compound was detected much earlier than with the older sample.

The Preparation of Uranium Foil

Description: "Uranium foil 0.001 inch thick was made by rolling cast specimens at 600°C in a steel jacket and cold rolling the resulting 0.012-inch-thick strip to the desired thickness. The foil was of excellent quality, having no pin holes and only very slight cracking."
