Steam Power Plants in Aircraft

Description: "The employment of steam power plants in aircraft has been frequently proposed. Arguments pro and con have appeared in many journals. It is the purpose of this paper to make a brief analysis of the proposal from the broad general viewpoint of aircraft power plants. Any such analysis may be general or detailed" (p. 1).

The Commercial Trend of the Producer-Gas Power Plant in the United States

Description: From Introduction: "In investigating general problems that relate to the fuel resources of this country, and in testing fuels belonging to or for the use of the Government, the Bureau of Mines has given considerable attention to the efficiency and economic value of producer-gas power plants. This feeling of commercial decadence has become so general that the facts gleaned from an inspection of the summaries and charts presented in this bulletin will undoubtedly surprise those who have regarded the immediate downfall of the producer as inevitable."

Hazards Evaluation Report Associated with the Operation of EBWR at 100 MW

Description: From Introduction: "This hazards report covers the basic modifications to the EBWR plant as designed to increase the present operating design rating of 20 Mwt to a new rating of 100 Mwt. it is written as a supplement to ANL-5781 (the original hazards report) and follows the outline of that report for purposes of cross reference."

A Study of Water Plant Isolation From Contamination

Description: From Introduction: "In this study, data has been obtained on radioactive nuclide concentrations in nuclear power plants of both the BWR direct cycle and the PWR indirect cycle. These data, together with leakage rates actually experienced in the PWR steam generators and with assumed leakage rates in brine heaters, are used to calculate concentrations of radioactive nuclides in the water plant product and effluent."

Evaluation of a Ducted-Fan Power Plant Designed for High Output and Good Cruise Fuel Economy

Description: Theoretical analysis of performance of a ducted-fan power plant designed both for high-output, high-altitude operation at low supersonic Mach numbers and for good fuel economy at lower fight speeds is presented. Performance of ducted fan is compared with performance (with and without tail-pipe burner) of two hypothetical turbojet engines. At maximum power, the ducted fan has propulsive thrust per unit of frontal area between thrusts obtained by turbojet engines with and without tail-pipe burners. At cruise, the ducted fan obtains lowest thrust specific fuel consumption. For equal maximum thrusts, the ducted fan obtains cruising flight duration and range appreciably greater than turbojet engines.

Analytical investigation of the use of regeneration in compressor-turbine-propeller systems

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of the present paper is to show in more detail the possibilities end the limitations of the use of regeneration as a means of effecting greater fuel economy and of reducing the net weight of the power plant and fuel of compressor-turbine-propeller aircraft engines."

Analytical investigation of effect of water-cooled turbine blades on performance of turbine-propeller power plants

Description: "Finally the work of the report is applied exclusively to consideration of the turbine-propeller power plant because previous performance analyses of the various gas-turbine propulsion systems combine with recent improvements in propeller design indicate that it is this combination which, will give the best over-all performance in the speed ranges considered" (p. 5).

Aircraft Power-Plant Instruments

Description: From Summary: "The report includes a description of the commonly used types and some others, the underlying principle utilized in the design, and some design data. The inherent errors of the instrument, the methods of making laboratory tests, descriptions of the test apparatus, and data in considerable detail in the performance of commonly used instruments are presented. Standard instruments and, in cases where it appears to be of interest, those used as secondary standards are described."

Rocket Power Plants Based on Nitric Acid and their Specific Propulsive Weights

Description: "Two fields are reserved for the application of rocket power plants. The first field is determined by the fact that the rocket power plant is the only type of power plant that can produce thrust without dependence upon environment. The second field is that in which the rocket power plant proves itself the most suitable as a high-power drive in free competition with other types of power plants" (p. 1).

Report on Rocket Power Plants Based on T-Substance

Description: "In the search for an energy source independent of air for the propulsion of underwater craft, attention was early concentrated on T-substance. It was possible to convince the OKM [NACA comment: Navy High Command] very quickly of the importance of this material. In 1934, the first experiments were undertaken" (p. 1).

Effect of First-Stage Blade Design on Performance of Mark 25 Torpedo Power Plant

Description: "The effect of rotor-blade length, inlet angle, and shrouding was investigated with four different nozzles in a single-stage modification of the Mark 25 aerial-torpedo power plant. The results obtained with the five special rotor configurations are compared with those of the standard first-stage rotor with each nozzle. Each nozzle-rotor combination was operated at nominal pressure ratios of 8, 15 (design), and 20 over a range of speeds from 6000 rpm to the design speed of 18,000 rpm" (p. 1).

The 5- by 7-meter wind tunnel of the DVL

Description: The report contains a description of the DVL wind tunnel. According to the cones fixed, an elliptical stream with axes 5 by 7 meters and length 9 meters, or a stream 6 by 8 meters in cross section and 11 meters in length is available. The top speed with the smaller cone is 65 meters per second. The testing equipment consists of an automatic six-component balance and a test rig for propellers and engines up to 650 horsepower.

Recent Development of the Producer-Gas Power Plant in the United States

Description: From Introduction: "A summary of the tests made at St. Louis and a resume of the conclusions to be drawn from the tests and from the opinions of gas-producer manufacturers on the status of the gas producer and gas engine was published in a Survey bulletin in 1907. As it is desirable to repeat much of the material that appeared in the former bulletin (now out of print), this presentation may be regarded as a revision of the previous one, although considerable information not previously available for publication has been added."

North Dakota Lignite as a Fuel for Power-Plant Boilers

Description: From Introduction: "The tests described in the following report were made by the United States Geological Survey in cooperation with the United States Reclamation Service, which, in connection with its Williston project, had erected a large pumping plant at Williston, N. Dak., and had installed steam boilers with furnaces designed to burn a "brown lignite" that was mined on adjacent government land. The results of the tests made at Williston, set forth in this report, show that this fuel, through generally considered unsatisfactory, may be used with fair economy under boilers that generate their full rated capacity."
