The Effect of Surface Irregularities on Wing Drag. II - Lap Joints, 2, Lap Joints

Description: Tests have been made in the NACA 8-foot high-speed wind tunnel of the drag caused by four types of lap joint. The tests were made on an airfoil of NACA 23012 section and 5-foot chord and covered in a range of speeds from 80 to 500 miles per hour and lift coefficients from 0 to 0.30. The increases in profile drag caused by representative arrangements of laps varied from 4 to 9%. When there were protruding rivet heads on the surface, the addition of laps increased the drag only slightly. Laps on the forward part of a wing increased the drag considerably more than those farther back.

Analytical and experimental investigation of bolted joints

Description: From Introduction: "The present paper contains the development of a recurrence formula for the bolt loads for the simplified case of a symmetrical butt joint with bolts spaced evenly in line with the applied load. The method presented herein is based on the fundamental relationship which was developed in reference 1 between the loads on any two successive bolts. The present paper also gives the results of an experimental investigation conducted to substantiate further the adequacy of the elastic theory as well as to yield additional data on the critical bolt load and the behavior of long joints in the plastic range and at the ultimate load."

The Shear of Aluminum Alloy Driven Rivets as Affected by Increasing D/T Ratios

Description: "A decrease in shear strengths for increasing D/t ratios was shown in a previous investigation of protruding-head aluminum alloy rivets in double shear conducted at Aluminum Research Laboratories in 1942. Since single shear joints are more common than double shear joints, it was desirable to extend the investigation to single shear joints. This reports describes the results of this investigation of single shear joints and also includes the results of the previous investigation on double shear joints" (p. 1).

Summary of Results of Tests Made by Aluminum Research Laboratories of Spot-Welded Joints and Structural Elements

Description: "Available information concerning spot welding as a means of joining aluminum-alloy parts has been summarized and comparisons have been made of the relative merits of spot-welded and riveted aluminum-alloy structural elements. The results indicated that spot welding was as satisfactory as riveting insofar as resistance to static loads is concerned. Spot welds showed slightly lower resistance to impact loads but definitely lower resistance to repeated loads than rivets" (p. 1).

Creep and Creep-Rupture Characteristics of Some Riveted and Spot-Welded Lap Joints of Aircraft Materials

Description: Note presenting a description of equipment and test technique used in the creep testing of lap joints. Riveted aluminum-alloy joints fabricated from 75S-T6 and 24S-T3 sheet with 24S and 24S-T31 rivets were tested at 300, 400, and 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The test results showed that the creep of the riveted joints is considerably greater than the creep of the unriveted sheet although not so large that the creep of the sheet is negligible compared with that of the joints.

Passive legged, multi-segmented, robotic vehicle.

Description: The Passive-legged, Multi-segmented, Robotic Vehicle concept is a simple legged vehicle that is modular and scaleable, and can be sized to fit through confined areas that are slightly larger than the size of the vehicle. A specific goal of this project was to be able to fit through the opening in the fabric of a chain link fence. This terrain agile robotic platform will be composed of multiple segments that are each equipped with appendages (legs) that resemble oars extending from a boat. Motion is achieved by pushing with these legs that can also flex to fold next to the body when passing through a constricted area. Each segment is attached to another segment using an actuated joint. This joint represents the only actuation required for mobility. The major feature of this type of mobility is that the terrain agility advantage of legs can be attained without the complexity of the multiple-actuation normally required for the many joints of an active leg. The minimum number of segments is two, but some concepts require three or more segments. This report discusses several concepts for achieving this type of mobility, their design, and the results obtained for each.

Report on the SNL/AWE/NSF international workshop on joint mechanics, Dartington, United Kingdom, 27<U+2013>29 April 2009.

Description: The SNL/AWE joint mechanics workshop, held in Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon, UK 26-29 April 2009 was a follow up to another international joints workshop held in Arlington, Virginia, in October 2006. The preceding workshop focused on identifying what length scales and interactions would be necessary to provide a scientific basis for analyzing and understanding joint mechanics from the atomistic scale on upward. In contrast, the workshop discussed in this report, focused much more on identification and development of methods at longer length scales that can have a nearer term impact on engineering analysis, design, and prediction of the dynamics of jointed structures. Also, the 2009 meeting employed less technical presentation and more break out sessions for developing focused strategies than was the case with the early workshop. Several 'challenges' were identified and assignments were made to teams to develop approaches to address those challenges.

Multidimensional Analysis of Quenching: Comparison of Inverse Techniques

Description: Understanding the surface heat transfer during quenching can be beneficial. Analysis to estimate the surface heat transfer from internal temperature measurements is referred to as the inverse heat conduction problem (IHCP). Function specification and gradient adjoint methods, which use a gradient search method coupled with an adjoint operator, are widely u led methods to solve the IHCP. In this paper the two methods are presented for the multidimensional case. The focus is not a rigorous comparison of numerical results. Instead after formulating the multidimensional solutions, issues associated with the numerical implementation and practical application of the methods are discussed. In addition, an experiment that measured the surface heat flux and temperatures for a transient experimental case is analyzed. Transient temperatures are used to estimate the surface heat flux, which is compared to the measured values. The estimated surface fluxes are comparable for the two methods.
