Analysis of part-speed operation for high-pressure-ratio multistage axial-flow compressors

Description: From Introduction: "For the analysis reported herein, the same hypothetical 12-stage compressor discussed in reference 6 was chosen, and the effects of inlet-stage stall characteristics and stage interactions were estimated by arbitrary adjustment of the stall characteristics and stage interactions were estimated by arbitrary adjustment of the stalled characteristics of the individual stages."

Analysis and modification of theory for impact of seaplanes on water

Description: From Summary: "An analysis of available theory on seaplane impact and a proposed modification thereto are presented. In previous methods the overall momentum of the float and virtual mass has been assumed to remain constant during the impact but the present analysis shows that this assumption is rigorously correct only when the resultant velocity of the float is normal to the keel."

Spot Diagrams for the Prediction of Lens Performance From Design Data

Description: From Abstract: "This Monograph presents an outline of the methods used at the National Bureau of Standards to predict the performance of lenses from an analysis of their designs. The technique is based on the use of spot diagrams, which are analogs of star image tests, and makes extensive use of high-speed digital computers."

Purchase of Coal by the Government Under Specifications: with Analysis of Coal Delivered for the Fiscal Year 1908-9

Description: From Introduction: "This bulletin is the third of a series showing the results of government purchases of coal according to specifications as to its quality and giving typical forms of proposals for supplying coal and general information relating to government coal purchases. This paper gives in detail the results of government purchases of coal for the fiscal year 1908-9 and the list of contracts with abstracts of specifications for the fiscal year 1909-10, and summarizes the information on this subject obtained by the Survey."

Analyses of Tipple and Delivered Samples of Coal: (Collected During the Fiscal Years 1948 to 1950 Inclusive)

Description: From Forward: "This bulletin is the first of a new series, which includes analyses of only tipple and delivered coal. It covers samples collected throughout the United States from July 1, 1947 to June 30, 1950 (fiscal years 1948-50). It is planned that future publications of this series will cover a period of one fiscal year only and be issued as soon as possible after June 30 of each year."

Analysis of behavior of simply supported flat plates compressed beyond the buckling load into the plastic range

Description: From Summary and Introduction: "An analysis is presented of the postbuckling behavior of a simply supported square flat plate with straight edges compressed beyond the buckling load into the plastic range. The method of analysis involves the application of a variational principle of the deformation theory of plasticity in conjunction with computations carried out on a high-speed calculating machine. The results of the analysis are presented in the form of curves showing the variation of deformations, stress distribution, average compressive stress, and effective width with the applied unit shortening."

The aerodynamic analysis of the gyroplane rotating-wing system

Description: From Summary: "An aerodynamic analysis of the gyroplane rotating-wing system is presented herein. This system consists of a freely rotating rotor in which opposite blades are rigidly connected and allowed to rotate or feather freely about their span axis. Equations have been derived for the lift, the lift-drag ratio, the angle of attack, the feathering angles, and the rolling and pitching moments of a gyroplane rotor in terms of its basic parameters. Curves of lift-drag ratio against lift coefficient have been calculated for a typical case, showing the effect of varying the pitch angle, the solidarity, and the average blade-section drag coefficient. The analysis expresses satisfactorily the qualitative relations between the rotor characteristics and the rotor parameters. As disclosed by this investigation, the aerodynamic principles of the gyroplane are sound, and further research on this wing system is justified."

Analysis of the effects of wing interference on the tail contributions to the rolling derivatives

Description: From Introduction: "This report presents calculations of the angularity of the air stream with respect to the vertical tail for a rolling airplane, the interference effects of the wing being taken into account. A discussion of the factors which enter into the calculations is given and equations for applying the side-wash results to the determination of the tail contributions to the rolling-stability derivatives are included. The results are compared with some available experimental data."

Analysis of planing data for use in predicting hydrodynamic impact loads

Description: From Introduction: "The magnitude of hydrodynamic loads experienced by seaplanes during a landing impact has been investigated experimentally and theoretically by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. The results as reported in references 1 and 2 provide a rational means of determining loads on conventional V-bottom hulls in a step landing."

Analysis of heat addition in a convergent-divergent nozzle

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this report is to treat analytically heat addition heat addition to a divergent stream with initially sonic flow and to employ the results thus obtained in evaluating the effect of delayed combustion on convergent-divergent nozzle performance."

An analysis of the effect of several parameters on the stability of an air-lubricated hydrostatic thrust bearing

Description: From Introduction: "The present investigation considers a simple nonrotating thrust bearing consisting of two round flat disks of finite diameter separated by a thin film of air. The nonlinear differential equations governing the motion of the bearing when disturbed were solved on a high-speed digital computing machine. In addition, these solutions provide a means for checking the validity of more simplified solutions (e.g., ref. 1)."

Analysis of Stage Matching and Off-Design Performance of Multistage Axial-Flow Compressors

Description: From Introduction: "The present report is intended to give a qualitative picture of the operation of each stage of a multistage compressor over a range of actual operating conditions from 50 to 100 percent design speed and to point out some means of achieving improved off-design performance. The method used in the report is primarily analytical and is based on single-stage-performance results."

Air Transport by Gliders: Some Technical Observations

Description: This short analysis may be useful in determining the real tactical possibilities of "glider trains" and in adopting the course to be followed in possible studies of these questions. In this analysis most prominent are: (a) the power required for the train in level flight; (b) its speed; (c) climb; and (d) the type of airplane best suited for towing as well as design requirements for transport gliders.
