The Effect of a Change in Body Shape on the Loading of a 45 Degree Sweptback Wing-Body Combination at Transonic Speeds

Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation made in the 8-foot transonic tunnel of the pressure distribution on a wing-body combination with a 45 degree sweptback wing with aspect ratio 4, taper ratio 0.6, and NACA 65A006 airfoil sections parallel to the plane of symmetry. The chordwise pressure distributions, which were determined at various spanwise stations, indicate that the flow about the two configurations is the same. Results regarding basic pressure measurements and loading and aerodynamic characteristics are provided.

Body Image as Mediated by Age, Sex, and Relationship Status

Description: Traditionally, body image research has focused on young women. However, there are indications of cultural shifts which extend physical appearance pressures to both men and women, as well as to middle-aged and older adults. Two hundred and ten subjects were administered objective body image measures including the Figure Rating Scale, the Body Shape Questionnaire, and the Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire, as well as projective measures including the Holtzman Inkblot Technique and the Draw-A-Person. The NEO-Five Factor Inventory and the Social Anxiety Subscale were also used to explore variables which might covary with body image. A 3 X 2 X 2 Multivariate Analysis of Covariance (MANCOVA) was utilized with social desirability as the covariate.

Theoretical investigation of the effects upon lift of a gap between wing and body of a slender wing-body combination

Description: Report presenting the application of slender-body theory to the study of effects upon lift produced by the presence of a gap between the wing and cylindrical body of a slender wing-body combination.Two conditions were studied, one in which the wing and body have the same angle of attack and the other in which only the deflected wing had an angle of incidence to the free stream.

Comparison between prediction and experiment for all-movable wing and body combinations at supersonic speeds: Lift, pitching moment, and hinge moment

Description: From Summary: "A simple method is presented for estimating lift, pitching-moment, and hinge-moment characteristics of all-movable wings in the presence of a body as well as the characteristics of wing-body combinations employing such wings. In general, good agreement between the method and experiment was obtained for the lift and pitching moment of the entire wing-body combination and for the lift of the wing in the presence of the body. The method is valid for moderate angles of attack, wing deflection angles, and width of gap between wing and body."

The Interference Effects of a Body on the Spanwise Load Distributions of Two 45 Degree Sweptback Wings of Aspect Ratio 8.02 from Low-Speed Tests

Description: From Summary: "Tests of two wing-body combinations have been conducted in the Langley 19-foot pressure tunnel at a Reynolds number of 4 x 10(exp 6) and a Mach number of 0.19 to determine the effects of the bodies on the wing span load distributions. The wings had 45 degrees sweepback of the quarter-chord line, aspect ratio 8.02, taper ratio 0.45, and incorporated 12-percent-thick airfoil sections streamwise. One wing was untwisted and uncambered whereas the second wing incorporated both twist and camber. Identical bodies of revolution, of 10:1 fineness ratio, having diameter-to-span ratios of 0.10, were mounted in mid-high-wing arrangements."

An Experimental Technique for the Objective Quantification of Body-Image Distortion

Description: The purpose of this study was to develop an experimental technique to objectively measure the deviation between an individual's perception of his body image and his actual image. In addition, this technique was utilized to compare the accuracy of perception of body image between institutionalized and non-institutionalized individuals. Half of each subject category was also compared in terms of performance on an additional perceptual task unrelated to body image.

The Relationship of Body Cathexis and Motor Performance in Junior High School Girls of Three Ethnic Groups

Description: This investigation is concerned with the problem of determining whether or not a significant relationship exists between body cathexis and motor performance in junior high school girls. In addition, the study investigates whether or not there are significant differences among Negro, white, and Mexican--American girls and seventh-,eighth-, and ninth-grade girls in body cathexis and motor ability performance.

Measuring Male Body Dissatisfaction: Factorial and Construct Validity of the Body Parts Satisfaction Scale for Men

Description: Given the centrality of body dissatisfaction in the manifestation of health risk behaviors (e.g., eating disorders, muscle dysmorphia) and psychological distress in men, the ability to measure it accurately is essential. Across two studies, the psychometric properties and factor structure of a new measure of male body satisfaction were established. The Body Parts Satisfaction Scale for Men (BPSS-M) was found to have three scores: full body muscularity and leanness (18 items), upper body (12 items), and legs (4 items). All three scores were internally and temporally reliable, and support was found for the convergent, discriminant, and concurrent validity of the scores. The BPSS-M represents an advance in the measurement of male body image, providing researchers and clinicians with a versatile and valid way to assess this important construct.

Adenosine and down-regulation of myocardial oxygen demand

Description: This investigation studied the physiological means by which myocardium can survive and function properly when oxygen supply is limited and cannot initially match oxygen demand. The effects of isoproterenol (ISO) stimulations during low coronary perfusion pressure or hypoxemia on myocardial oxygen demand, work, and oxygen utilization efficiency were investigated.

A study of the zero-lift drag-rise characteristics of wing-body combinations near the speed of sound

Description: Comparisons of the shock phenomena and drag-rise increments for representative wing and central-body combinations with those for bodies of revolution with the same axial distributions of cross-sectional area normal to the air stream. An investigation was also presented of representative wing-body combinations with the body so indented that the axial distributions of cross-sectional areas for the combinations were the same as that for the original body. Results regarding unswept wing and cylindrical body, delta wing and cylindrical body, swept wing and cylindrical body, swept wing and curved body, and applications of the transonic drag-rise concept are provided.

Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation at Reynolds numbers of about 7,000,000 based on the mean aerodynamic chord of the wing and over a range of Mach numbers. Two airfoils were tested to evaluate the effect of a large leading-edge radius with increased thickness over the forward 40 percent of the chord on the reliability of the predictions of the supersonic area rule. Results regarding the comparison of basic- and modified-wing models, comparison of experimental and computed drag coefficients, and a comparison of indentations are provided.
