Heat Transfer, Flow Instability, and Critical Heat Flux For Water in a Small Tube At 200 psia

Description: From Abstract: Report discussing "the effects of developing two-phase flow regimes in a constant-pressure drop system are shown in recorded traces from a fast-response flow transducer: the mass velocity decreases and transfer-surface superheat increases with increasing steam quality."

Temperature Distribution in the Crystallization of Undercooled Liquids in Cylindrical Tubes

Description: From Introduction: "The major difficulty in interpreting the results obtained by this simple experimental technique is the specification of the temperature at the crystal-liquid interface. Since, the liquid-to-solid transformation is exothermic the temperature in the vicinity of the interface will exceed the temperature in the vicinity of the interface will exceed the temperature of the bulk of the cooling bath, which is the quantity most conveniently measured and most frequently reported."

Investigation of Pitot Tubes

Description: Report describes the principles of operation and characteristics of some of the instruments which have been devised or used to measure both low and high speeds of aeroplanes. Since the pitot tube is the instrument which has been most commonly used in the United States and Great Britain as a speedometer for aeroplanes, it is treated first and somewhat more fully than the others.

Wind-Tunnel Investigation of a Shielded Total-Pressure Tube at Transonic Speeds

Description: Report presenting testing of a shielded total-pressure tube with a curved venturi entry in order to obtain the variation of total-pressure error with angle of attack from a range of 0 to 60 degrees and for a range of Mach numbers. The critical angle was found to vary from about 57 degrees at Mach number 0.90 to 56 degrees at Mach number 1.10.

Third Report on Horizontal-Tube Multiple-Effect Process Pilot Plant Tests

Description: From Summary: "This report describes the continuing work on HTME distillation plants, the first portions of which were reported in References 1 and 2. A major purpose in the testing of the three-effect pilot plant was to demonstrate mutiple-effect operability of the the horizontal tube method, when utilizing basically the same construction methods and materials as those proposed for commercial HTME plants."

The Measurement of Pressure Through Tubes in Pressure Distribution Tests

Description: "The tests described in this report were made to determine the error caused by using small tubes to connect orifices on the surface of aircraft to central pressure capsules in making pressure distribution tests. Aluminum tubes of 3/16-inch inside diameter were used to determine this error. Lengths from 20 feet to 226 feet and pressures whose maxima varied from 2 inches to 140 inches of water were used. Single-pressure impulses for which the time of rise of pressure from zero to a maximum varied from 0.25 second to 3 seconds were investigated" (p. 303).

Shock-Tube Experiments at University of Oklahoma and Cornell University

Description: Abstract: "The shock-tube experiments of Professor R. G. Fowler and his co-workers at the University of Oklahoma, and of Professor Arthur Kantrowits and his group at Cornell University, are reported by the author, who visited the laboratories of the two groups. Fowler's group has studied expanding low-pressure sparks; Kantrowits and his group have studied shocks produced by the adiabatic expansion of a compressed gas."

Plastic Flow During Extrusion of Tubing

Description: Abstract: "A study of plastic flow during the extrusion of tubing was made by extruding colored Plasticine billets in a small-scale extrusion press. Decreasing the included angle of the conical die and tapering the ram end of the billet decreased the amount of coextrusion of the backer block into the tubing, lubricating the billet also decreased coextrusion."

A theory for predicting the flow of real gases in shock tubes with experimental verification

Description: Report presenting the nonlinear characteristic differential equations applicable to a quasi-one-dimensional unsteady channel flow with friction and heat transfer, which are linearized and integrated in functional form for the particular study of small perturbations from ideal shock-tube flows.

Experimental data concerning the effect of high heat-input rates on the pressure drop through radiator tubes

Description: From Summary: "The pressure drops through electrically heated Inconel tubes with length-diameter ratios of 29.25, 58.50, 87.75, and 117.00 have been measured at entrance Mach numbers from approximately 0.12 to the value at which choking occurred. The heat-input rate was varied from zero to the highest values allowable without damaging the tubes. Experimental data and a number of computed variables are presented in tabular form."

Coking of JP-4 fuels in electrically heated metal tubes

Description: A limited exploratory investigation of the rate of coking of four JP-4 fuels in electrically heated metal tubes was conducted in order to provide design information for fuel prevaporizers for turbojet-engine combustors. The fuels tested included two production and two minimum-quality JP-4 type fuels. The heating tube was operated at fuel pressures of approximately 500, 400, and 50 pounds per square inch. The operating fuel temperature was varied between approximately 600 degrees and 1200 degrees F.

Pressure drop in tank and float vent tubes on diving airplanes

Description: Report presenting an experiment regarding tank and float venting conditions that exist on diving airplanes undergoing rapid changes in altitude. The results indicated that large pressure differences build up between the outside and inside of tanks and floats on diving airplanes unless the correct size of venting tube is used.

Boundary Disturbances in High Explosive Shock Tubes

Description: From abstract: High velocity disturbances are observed to propagate along the walls of a high explosive operated shock tube in advance of the plane shock. Experiments are presented which determine the dependence of the geometry, energy, and velocity of the disturbance on such variables as the gas contained in the shock tube, the shock strength, and the roughness and composition of the supporting boundary. A model is constructed to explain the flow within the disturbance. Arguments are presented which show the disturbance to result from radiation originating in the luminous plane shock...The purpose of this paper is to present the results of initial investigations made in an effort to describe the phenomenon of strong shocks developed in a shock tube by the detonation of high explosive charge.

Boundary Disturbances in High Explosive Shock Tubes

Description: Abstract: High Velocity disturbance are observed to propagate in advance of the plane shock front along the walls of a high-explosive-operated shock tube. Experiments were performed which indicate that the disturbance proceeds at a constant velocity relative to the shock front, and carries a considerable amount of energy as evidenced by its ability to penetrate metal plates. The velocity of a similar disturbance observed along a rod placed on the axis of the shock tube normal to the plane shock front was essentially independent of the rod material and diameter. This phenomenon was observed when shock tubes were filled with argon or chlorine but was absent when air or helium was used.
