Experimental pressure distributions over wing tips at Mach number 1.9 I :wing tip with subsonic leading edge

Description: An investigation was conducted at a Mach number of 1.91 to determine spanwise pressure distribution over a wing tip in a region influenced by a sharp subsonic leading edge swept back at 70 degrees. Except for pressure distribution on the top surface in the immediate vicinity of the subsonic leading edge, the maximum difference between linearized theory and experimental data was 2 1/2 percent (of free-stream dynamic pressure) for angles of attack up to 4 degrees and 7 percent for angles of attack up to 8 degrees. Pressures on the top surface nearest the subsonic edge indicated local expansions beyond values predicted by linearized theory.

A cooling correlation equation for a double-row radial engine based on the temperature of the exhaust-valve seat

Description: Report discussing a cooling-correlation equation based on the average temperature of exhaust-valve seats of a large double-row radial engine. From the equation, predicts can be made about the cooling-air pressure drop required to cool the critical region of engine cylinders. Using a modified carburetor to improve the fuel-air-ratio distribution to the cylinders increased the accuracy of the equation's predictions.

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Description: From Introduction: "The research program included clean-up tests (unpublished data) and stability and control tests (reference 1) made in the NACA Langley full-scale tunnel.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."
