Interferometric observation of flow about an isentropic (reverse Prandtl-Meyer streamline) compression wedge at Mach 3.0

Description: Report presenting an interferometric study of the flow over a two-dimensional isentropic compression surface at a Mach number of 3.0. The flow field was essentially that of a strong-branch-shock configuration resulting from a surface flow turning that corresponded to an empirical limiting value of free-stream normal-shock pressure rise.

Vacuum-Freezing Vapor-Compression Process: Evaluation on Brackish Water

Description: From Abstract: "The Vacuum-Freezing Vapor-Compression (VFVC) Process was evaluated on high salinity brackish water during the period from February 1968 through December 1969 by Colt Industries Inc., under O.S.W. Contract No. 14-01-0001-967 at Roswell, New Mexico. The 15,000 gpd VFVC test plant is mounted on a mobile trailer which was built by Colt Industries Inc. in their factory at Beloit, Wisconsin. Prior to operation at Roswell, the plant was operated at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina to check out the system and to operate the trailer on sea water." Process Description: "A simplified diagram, Figure 2, shows both the essential components of the process and flow paths of the various streams in the system. Typical heat and mass balances are shown on Figures 3 and 4."

A study of a symmetrical, circular, internal, compression inlet

Description: From Summary: "A preliminary experimental study of symmetrical, circular, internal compression inlets has shown that they attain pressure recovery equal to that measured by conical nose inlets at Mach numbers up to about 2.3. This pressure recovery was obtained with configurations having essentially zero pressure drag of the external surfaces."

Tank Tests of a Powered Model of a Compression Plane, NACA Model 171A-2

Description: "The compression plane is intended for operation on or close to the surface of the water, and has a hull with a concave bottom which forms the upper surface of a tunnel into which air is forced under pressure to support part of the load. The results of the tests made in Langley tank no. 1 include values of the horizontal forces, trimming moment, and static pressure in the tunnel for a wide range of loads and speeds and two power conditions, and are presented in the form of curves against speed with load as a parameter. The results are scaled up to 10 times the model size for three conditions at which the model is self-propelled at a steady speed" (p. 1).

The shearing rigidity of curved panels under compression

Description: Report presenting experiments to determine the shearing rigidity of curved panels under compression, particularly in that region of loading where the panels are in a buckled state. For the preliminary tests four, and for the final test series eight, circular cylinders were built of aluminum alloy sheet. Results regarding the uniformity of compressive strain, buckling of the panels, distribution of shear strain, calculation of the effective shear modulus, shear rigidity versus compressive strain curves, nondimensional shear rigidity curves, and failure of the cylinders are provided.

Buckling of thin-walled cylinder under axial compression and internal pressure

Description: An investigation was made of a thin-walled cylinder under axial compression and various internal pressures to study the effect of the internal pressure on the compressive buckling stress of the cylinder. A theoretical analysis based on a large-deflection theory was also made. The theoretically predicted increase of compressive buckling stress due to internal pressure agrees fairly well with the experimental results. (author).

A study of general instability of box beams with truss-type ribs

Description: The design of truss-type ribs for box beams is theoretically treated with regard to the function of the ribs in stabilizing the compression flange. The theory is applied to a design problem, and the results of this application are presented and discussed in relation to the general problem of rib design. The results of some tests made as a part of this general study are presented in an appendix.

Torsion and buckling of open sections

Description: Following an abstract of the well-known theory of torsion in compression, the writers give directions for the practical calculation of the values of C(sub BT) (resistance to flexure and torsion) and i(sub SP(exp 2)), which determine the torsion.

Experimental Investigation of Stiffened Circular Cylinders Subjected to Combined Torsion and Compression

Description: "Five stiffened circular cylinders were tested to failure under various combinations of torsion and compression. The results of the tests are presented in the form of plots of stringer stress against cylinder load and an interaction curve for the strength of stringers that fail by local crippling.

The Effect of Changes in Compression Ratio Upon Engine Performance

Description: "This report is based upon engine tests made at the Bureau of Standards during 1920, 1921, 1922, and 1923. The majority of these tests were of aviation engines and were made in the Altitude Laboratory. For a small portion of the work a single cylinder experimental engine was used. This, however, was operated only at sea-level pressures. The report shows that an increase in break horsepower and a decrease in the pounds of fuel used per brake horsepower hour usually results from an increase in compression ratio" (p. 399).
