Cooling characteristics of an experimental tail-pipe burner with an annular cooling-air passage

Description: The effects of tail-pipe fuel-air ratio (exhaust-gas temperatures from approximately 3060 degrees to 3825 degrees R), radial distribution of tail-pipe fuel flow, and mass flow of combustion gas and the inside wall were determined for an experimental tail-pipe burner cooled by air flowing through and insulated cooling-air to combustion gas mass flow from 0.066 to 0.192 were also determined. Results regarding the reproducibility of combustion-gas temperature profiles, effect of variables on average longitudinal profiles of combustion-gas temperature, variation of gas temperatures near the wall with cooling-air flow and temperature, and effects of variables on transverse gas temperatures are provided.

Resistance of Plates and Pipes at High Reynolds Numbers

Description: It was learned that the law of resistance for high R values does not follow the simple powers, and that the powers, which can be obtained approximately for the velocity distribution, gradually change. Since, moreover, very important investigations have recently been made on the resistance of plates at very high R values, it seemed of interest to apply the above line of reasoning to the new general law of resistance. For this purpose, the resistance and velocity distribution along the plate must always be equal to the values of the pipe flow at the corresponding Reynolds number.

Flow in Smooth Straight Pipes at Velocities Above and Below Sound Velocity

Description: "To investigate the laws of flow of compressible fluids in pipes, tests were carried out with air flowing at velocities below and above that of sound in straight smooth pipes. Air was chosen as the flow medium. In order that the effect of compressibility may be brought out most effectively, the velocity should lie between 100 and 500 m/s (200 and 1,000 mph); that is, be of the order of magnitude of the velocity of sound in air. The behavior of the compression shock in a smooth cylindrical pipe was also investigated" (p. 1).

Effect of Intake Pipe on the Volumetric Efficiency of an Internal Combustion Engine

Description: " The writer discusses the phenomena of expansion and compression which alternately take place in the cylinders of four-stroke engines during the induction process at a high mean piston speed due to the inertia and elasticity of the mixture in the intake pipe. The present paper is intended to demonstrate theoretically the existence of a most favorable pipe length for charging" (p. 1).

CSER 97-001 Criticality safety limits for PFP 26-inch vacuum lineremoval

Description: As part of the plutonium stabilization operations in the 234-5Z Building, several runs of 26-inch (26 inches of Hg) process vacuum header, along with associated smaller piping is to be cut into sections and disposed of. This criticality safety evaluation report (CSER) requested by Nirider (1996) addresses the removal of several hundred feet of abandoned 3 and 4 inch nominal diameter vacuum header and associated smaller diameter piping runs located in the duct level of the 234-5Z Building in rooms 262, 263, and 264 as shown in the two attached drawings.

Subsurface electromagnetic measurement through steel casing

Description: Numerical calculations show that useful information can be obtained in an electromagnetic crosswell survey where one of the wells is cased in steel. Our simple model is based on the assumption of an infinitely long uniform casing embedded in a homogeneous full space. Nevertheless the results indicate that if the pipe characteristics are independently known then the formation signal can be accurately recovered. This is best done at a single frequency where the pipe attenuation is modest. In fact we show that the optimal frequency for formation signal recovery is defined mainly by the pipe parameters and is largely independent of the formation conductivity.

Theoretical and measured attenuation of mufflers at room temperature without flow, with comments on engine-exhaust muffler design

Description: Equations are presented for the attenuation characteristics of several types of mufflers. Experimental curves of attenuation plotted against frequency are presented for 77 different mufflers and the results are compared with theory. The experiments were made at room temperature without flow and the sound source was a loud-speaker. A method is given for including the tail pipe in the calculations. The application of the theory to the design of engine-exhaust mufflers is discussed, and charts have been included for the assistance of the designer.

Friction in Pipes at Supersonic and Subsonic Velocities

Description: Note presenting an experimental determination of the apparent friction coefficient for the flow of air through smooth pipes at subsonic and supersonic velocities. In supersonic flow, the results were found to be strongly influenced by the presence of oblique shocks formed at the junction of nozzle and pipe. Results regarding the apparent friction coefficient, subsonic flow, supersonic flow, and comparisons with other investigations are provided.

Increasing the Volumetric Efficiency of Diesel Engines by Intake Pipes

Description: "Development of a method for calculating the volumetric efficiency of piston engines with intake pipes. Application of this method to the scavenging pumps of two-stroke-cycle engines with crankcase scavenging and to four-stroke-cycle engines. The utility of the method is demonstrated by volumetric-efficiency tests of the two-stroke-cycle engines with crankcase scavenging. Its practical application to the calculation of intake pipes is illustrated by example" (p. 1).
