A Photographic Study of Freezing of Water Droplets Falling Freely in Air

Description: From Summary: "A photographic technique for investigating water droplets of diameter less than 200 microns falling freely in air at temperatures between 0 C and -50 C has been devised and used to determine: (1) The shape of frozen droplets, (2) The occurrence of collisions of partly frozen or of frozen and liquid droplets, and (3) The statistics on the freezing temperatures of individual free-falling droplets."

Variation of Local Liquid-Water Concentration About and Ellipsoid of Fineness Ratio 5 Moving in a Droplet Field

Description: From Summary: "Trajectories of water droplets about an ellipsoid of revolution with a fineness ratio of 5 (which often approximates the shape of an aircraft fuselage or missile) were computed with the aid of a differential analyzer. Analyses of these trajectories indicate that the local concentration of liquid water at various points about an ellipsoid in flight through a droplet field varies considerably and under some conditions may be several times the free-stream concentration."

Variation of Local Liquid-Water Concentration About an Ellipsoid of Fineness Ratio 10 Moving in a Droplet Field

Description: From Summary: "Trajectories of water droplets about an ellipsoid of revolution with a fineness ratio of 10 (10 percent thick) in flight through a droplet field were computed with the aid of a differential analyzer. Analyses of these trajectories indicate that the local concentration of liquid water at various points about an ellipsoid varies considerably and under some conditions may be several times the free-stream concentration. Curves of the local concentration factor as a function of spatial position were obtained and are presented in terms of dimensionless parameters that describe flight and atmospheric conditions."

X-Ray Diffraction Study of the Internal Structure of Supercooled Water

Description: From Summary: "A Bragg X-ray spectrometer equipped with a volume-sensitive Geiger counter and Soller slits and employing filtered molybdenum Ka radiation was used to obtain a set of diffracted intensity curves as a Punction of angle for supercooled water. Diffracted intensity curves in the temperature region of 21 to -16 C were obtained. The minimum between the two main diffraction peaks deepened continuously with lowering temperature, indicating a gradual change in the internal structure of the water. No discontinuity in this trend was noted at the melting point. The internal structure of supercooled water was concluded to become progressively more ice-like as the temperature is lowered."

Impingement of Water Droplets on an Ellipsoid with Fineness Ration 10 in Axisymmetric Flow

Description: From Summary: "The presence of radomes and instruments that are sensitive to water films or ice formations in the nose section of all-weather aircraft and missiles necessitates a knowledge of the droplet impingement characteristics of bodies of revolution. Because it is possible to approximate many of these bodies with an ellipsoid of revolution, droplet trajectories about an ellipsoid of revolution with a fineness ratio of 10 were computed for incompressible axisymmetric air flow. From the computed droplet trajectories, the following impingement characteristics of the ellipsoid surface were obtained and are presented in terms of dimensionless parameters: (1) total rate of water impingement, (2) extent of droplet impingement zone, and (3) local rate of water impingement."

A Method for Determining Cloud-Droplet Impingement on Swept Wings

Description: From Summary: "The general effect of wing sweep on cloud-droplet trajectories about swept wings of high aspect ratio moving at subsonic speeds is discussed. A method of computing droplet trajectories about yawed cylinders and swept wings is presented, and illustrative droplet trajectories are computed. A method of extending two-dimensional calculations of droplet impingement on nonswept wings to swept wings is presented."

A Summary of Meteorological Conditions Associated With Aircraft Icing and a Proposed Method of Selecting Design Criterions for Ice-Protection Equipment

Description: Note presenting data from various sources on the observed values of meteorological variables, liquid-water content, mean-effective droplet size, and temperature, which are pertinent to aircraft icing. A method is proposed for the selection of design criterions for ice-protection equipment. The data are divided into two broad cloud types, stratiform and cumuliform clouds, because the icing conditions are very different for the two types.

Exploratory investigation of static- and base-pressure increases resulting from combustion of aluminum borohydride adjacent to body of revolution in supersonic wing tunnel

Description: Report presenting pressure distribution associated with the stable combustion of aluminum borohydride about a body of revolution in a wind tunnel at Mach number 2.47. Pressure increases on the cylindrical and base surfaces of the model were measured. Results regarding the burning and associated flow phenomena, axial and meridional static-pressure data obtained during combustion, and base-pressure data during combustion are provided.

A preliminary investigation of static-pressure changes associated with combustion of aluminum borohydride in a supersonic wind tunnel

Description: Report presenting static-pressure changes resulting from steady combustion of aluminum borohydride in a supersonic wind tunnel. Static pressures were measured along the top wall of a tunnel adjacent to the flame that filled the upper portion of the test section. Results regarding the static-pressure increases, effect of change in fuel-injection rate, and effect of tunnel boundary layer on the character of the heat-addition region are provided.

Exploratory investigation of aerodynamic effects of external combustion of aluminum borohydride in airstream adjacent to flat plate in Mach 2.46 tunnel

Description: Report presenting pressure distributions associated with stable combustion of aluminum borohydride in the supersonic stream adjacent to a short, 13-inch chord, and an extended, 25-inch chord, flat-plate model. High-speed direct and schileren motion pictures of the flame and associated shock waves were taken. Results regarding the description of the combustion and associated stream disturbances, static-pressure change at model reference surface caused by combustion, lift forces resulting from combustion, base pressure change caused by combustion, stream-parameter measurements during combustion, and surface temperature changes during combustion are provided.

Impingement of Water Droplets on a Sphere

Description: Droplet trajectories about a sphere in ideal fluid flow were calculated. From the calculated droplet trajectories the droplet impingement characteristics of the sphere were determined. Impingement data and equations for determining the collection efficiency, the area, and the distribution of impingement are presented in terms of dimensionless parameters. The range of flight and atmospheric conditions covered in the calculations was extended considerably beyond the range covered by previously reported calculations for the sphere.
