Modified Fragmentation Function from Quark Recombination

Description: Within the framework of the constituent quark model, it isshown that the single hadron fragmentation function of a parton can beexpressed as a convolution of shower diquark or triquark distributionfunction and quark recombination probability, if the interference betweenamplitudes of quark recombination with different momenta is neglected.Therecombination probability is determined by the hadron's wavefunction inthe constituent quark model. The shower diquark or triquark distributionfunctions of a fragmenting jet are defined in terms of overlappingmatrices of constituent quarks and parton field operators. They aresimilar in form to dihadron or trihadron fragmentation functions in termsof parton operator and hadron states. Extending the formalism to thefield theory at finite temperature, we automatically derive contributionsto the effective single hadron fragmentation function from therecombination of shower and thermal constituent quarks. Suchcontributions involve single or diquark distribution functions which inturn can be related to diquark or triquark distribution functions via sumrules. We also derive QCD evolution equations for quark distributionfunctions that in turn determine the evolution of the effective jetfragmentation functions in a thermal medium.

Investigation of the Behavior of Parallel Two-Dimensional Air Jets

Description: Report presenting an investigation made of the flow downstream from a two-dimensional grid, formed of parallel rods. The two-dimensional character of the flow was insured by end plates normal to the rods and covering the entire flow field. The nature of the flow was determined primarily by means of total-head measurements.

Turbulent Jet Expansion

Description: This report was made to study the velocity distribution in an open, in a partially open, and in a partially expanding jet. The open-jet observations reveal minor systematic discrepancies from Tollmien's theoretical velocity distribution. The shearing-stress distribution for the partially open jet was determined. The value derived for the ratio of mixing distance to jet width was found to be in close agreement with the corresponding value for the open-jet boundary.

Unstable Capillary Waves on Surface of Separation of Two Viscous Fluids

Description: "The study of the breakup of a liquid jet moving in another medium, for example, a jet of fuel from a nozzle, shows that for sufficiently large outflow velocities the jet breaks up into a certain number of drops of different diameters. At still larger outflow velocities, the continuous part of the jet practically vanishes and the jet immediately breaks up at the nozzle into a large number of droplets of varying diameters (the case of "atomization"). The breakup mechanism in this case has a very complicated character and is quite irregular, with the droplets near the nozzle forming a divergent cone" (p. 1).

Further experiments on the flow and heat transfer in a heated turbulent air jet

Description: "Measurements have been made of the mean-total-head and mean-temperature fields in a round turbulent jet with various initial temperatures. The results show that the jet spreads more rapidly as its density becomes lower than that of the receiving medium, even when the difference is not sufficiently great to cause dynamic-pressure function. Rough analytical considerations have given the same relative spread. The effective "turbulent Prandtl number" for a section of the fully developed jet was found to be equal to the true (laminar) Prandtl number within the accuracy measurement" (p. 859).

Contribution to the problem of airfoils spanning a free jet

Description: After a brief discussion of the work done up to now on an unwarped wing of constant chord spanning a free jet, the computation of the circulation and lift distribution for different forms of warped wings spanning rectangular and circular jets was carried out. The computed values are compared with test values and the agreement is found to be good. The effect of placing the wing eccentrically is slight and may be applied as a correction factor to the data obtained for wing placed in middle of jet.

An analysis of buzzing in supersonic ram jets by a modified one-dimensional nonstationary wave theory

Description: From Introduction: "The buzz or pulsation of axially symmetric supersonic inlets having central bodies has been the subject of investigations since Oswatitsch first observed the phenomenon in 1944 (ref.1). This buzzing is essentially an oscillation of the normal shock along the spike of certain diffusers operating at mass flows below design, and this buzz decreases the performance of the propulsion units appreciably (ref.2). This paper continues the analysis of the buzzing cycle by means of a modified one-dimensional approach."

Investigation of the Jet Effects on a Flat Surface Downstream of the Exit of a Simulated Turbojet Nacelle at a Free-Stream Mach Number of 2.02

Description: "An investigation at a free-stream Mach number of 2.02 was made to determine the effects of a propulsive jet on a wing surface located in the vicinity of a choked convergent nozzle. Static-pressure surveys were made on a flat surface that was located in the vicinity of the propulsive jet. The nozzle was operated over a range of exit pressure ratios at different fixed vertical distances from the flat surface. Within the scope of this investigation, it was found that shock waves, formed in the external flow because of the presence of the propulsive jet, impinged on the flat surface and greatly altered the pressure distribution" (p. 1).

Analysis and Experimental Observation of Pressure Losses in Ram-Jet Combustion Chambers

Description: From Introduction: "Some experimental data on flame-holder pressure losses have been presented (reference 1 to 4). A theoretical analysis that assume a sudden enlargement of flow area was made at the NACA Lewis laboratory to determine the effect of flame-holder open area and combustion-chamber-inlet Mach number on the pressure losses across flame holders. The results of this analysis were then compared with experimental data obtained with several different flame-holder designs."

Analysis and Construction of Design Charts for Turbines with Downstream Stators

Description: From Introduction: "This paper describes the theoretical treatment that has been given the combustion process as it occurs in turbojet combustors. Various parts of this work have been previously published (refs. 1 to 3); this report presents a brief summary of this previous work together with new data which amplify the conclusions of references 1 to 3. Similar studies have been made of the ram-jet combustion process (ref. 4 and 5); however, the analysis for ram-jet combustion differs in some details and is therefore not included herein."

Note on the Scavenge of 6-Inch-Diameter Ram-Jet Exhaust in Mach 3.1, 1- by 1-Foot Supersonic Tunnel

Description: From Summary: "The exhaust of a 6-inch-diameter ram-jet engine mounted in the Lewis 1- by 1-foot, Mach 3.1 supersonic tunnel was scavenged successfully with a 6.6-inch-diameter scoop. Limiting values of exhaust-to-stream static-pressure ratios and scavenge-system total-pressure ratios were determined for complete scavenging of the products of combustion. The scavenge-system operation influenced the engine exhaust-nozzle pressures under conditions of unstable scavenge flow."

Experimental Investigation of Spreading Characteristics of Choked Jets Expanding into Quiescent Air

Description: "Investigations have been conducted to determine by means of total-pressure surveys the boundaries of single and twin jets discharging through convergent nozzles into quiescent air. The jet boundaries for the region from the nozzle outlets to a station 6 nozzle diameters downstream are presented for nozzle pressure ratios ranging from 2.5 t o 16.0 and for twin-Jet nozzle center-line spacings ranging from 1.42 to 2.50 nozzle diameters. The effects of these parameters on the interaction of twin Jets are discussed" (p. 1).

Gas Jets

Description: "A brief summary of the contents of this paper is presented here. In part I the differential equations of the problem of a gas flow in two dimensions is derived and the particular integrals by which the problem on jets is solved are given. Use is made of the same independent variables as Molenbroek used, but it is found to be more suitable to consider other functions. The stream function and velocity potential corresponding to the problem are given in the form of series" (p. 1).

Application of the Theory of Free Jets

Description: Based upon Kirchoff's theory of free jets the flow through different screen arrangements of flat plates, as chiefly encountered with turbines in the cavitation zone is defined. It is shown by experiments that these theoretical results are very well representative in most cases of the conditions of discharge from water in air and consequently by cavitation. In addition, the experiments reveal a picture of the discrepancies between the actual flow and the theory of discharge of air in air (of water in water without cavitation).
