Tests of Air Valves for Intermittent-Jet Engines at Speeds of 20 and 25 Cycles Per Second

Description: Report discussing a study of automatic nonreturn air valves for use in an intermittent-jet engine. Four valve-spring materials, three valve-grill materials, and five types of valves were used. Valve A, which was made out of aluminum, was found to perform the best and last the longest.

The development and application of high-critical-speed nose inlets

Description: From Summary: "An analysis of the nose-inlet shapes developed in previous investigations to represent the optimum from the standpoint of critical speed has shown that marked similarity exists between the nondimensional profiles of inlets which have widely different proportions and critical speeds. With the nondimensional similarity of such profiles established, the large differences in the critical speeds of these nose inlets must be a function of their proportions. An investigation was undertaken in the Langley 8-foot high-speed tunnel to establish the effects of nose-inlet proportions on critical Mach number to develop a rational method for the design of high-critical-speed nose inlets to meet desired requirements."

The Metal-Dielectric Junction of High-Voltage Insulators in Vacuum and Magnetic Field

Description: From introduction: "This study is concerned with the shape of the electrodes of high-voltage insulator and with the method of joining them to the dielectric. The study is limited to insulators operating in vacuum, with special interest in the cases where strong magnetic fields are present. It is further limited to insulators with the high-voltage electrodes maintained at negative potential. The object of the study was to obtain information that would aid in improving the design of the insulators in two respects. First, to decrease to a minimum the number of charged particles set free which may directly or indirectly cause early failure of the insulator. Second, to increase the voltages at which partial or complete flashovers occur. Therefore, experiments were made to determine the principal phenomenon which have as their primary source the insulator under high electrical stress in vacuum."

The Solubility of Uranyl Oxalate and the Existence of Undissociated Uranyl Oxalate in Solution

Description: Abstract: "The solubility of the solid, UO2C2O4 x rH2O, was measured at various acid and uranyl nitrate concentrations. The results of the measurements prove the existence of the uranyl oxalate complex - UO2C2O4, in solutions containing excess UO2^2."

Consolidation and shaping of boron ; summary of previous work

Description: From abstract: "The deposit on the rods is in the form of a brittle uneven tube which is cracked off and subsequently pulverized to a 200-mesh powder. This report is chiefly concerned with methods of consolidating this powder and shaping it into forms required, though it also discusses to some extent other methods of shaping boron or born-rich materials."
