Four in. three jaw type connector suitable for vertical mounting sample for job 11

Description: As authorized by purchase order No. 11-2532 dated March 11, 1949 of the Kellex Corp., the first sample of a 4 inch three jaw type connector for Job 11 was fabricated. The design of the connector was per Crane Co. drawing DR-25126-D except vertical mounting. The materials were per Crane Co. drawing A-24491-C. As instructed in verbal conversation with Dr. D.D. Jacobus and as requested in Mr. J.J. Cuniffe`s letter of May 6, 1949, and Ingersoll-Rand Company`s 1 1/4 inch 534 impact wrench with suitable socket to fit the hexagon head of the operating screw of the 4 inch connector was procured on loan to make some preliminary tests. Engineering drawings are listed in a second report on the data base.

An empirical criterion for fin stabilizing jettisonable nose sections of airplanes

Description: "Investigations in the Langley 20-foot free-spinning tunnel of models of five jettisonable nose sections have shown that the airplane nose sections are inherently unstable but can be stabilized by the addition of suitable fins. An empirical criterion has been developed which indicates the fin area required for stabilizing an airplane jettisonable nose section" (p. 1).

Investigation of a Thin Wing of Aspect Ratio 4 in the Ames 12-Foot Pressure Wind Tunnel 5: Static Longitudinal Stability and Control Throughout the Subsonic Speed Range of a Semispan Model of a Supersonic Airplane

Description: Memorandum presenting wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of a hypothetical supersonic airplane to determine the static longitudinal stability and control characteristics of the airplane throughout the range of subsonic Mach numbers up to 0.95. The model had a long slender fuselage and a wing and horizontal tail of aspect ratio 4 and taper ratio 0.5. Results regarding the force and moment characteristics, wing wake and effective downwash at the horizontal tail, effects of compressibility, and longitudinal characterisitcs with the flaps deflected are provided.

Model ditching investigation of the Douglas DC-4 and DC-6 airplanes

Description: Report presenting the ditching characteristics of the Douglas DC-4 and DC-6 in a water tank. Dynamically similar models of 1/16 scale were used for the investigation, which was conducted in calm and rough water. The ditching characteristics and safest ditching procedures were determined by testing at various landing attitudes, speeds, and simulated conditions of damage.

Investigation at large scale of the pressure distribution and flow phenomena over a wing with the leading edge swept back 47.5 degrees having circular-arc airfoil sections and equipped with drooped-nose and plain flaps

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the pressure distribution over a wing with the leading-edge swept back 47.5 degrees and with symmetrical circular-arc airfoil sections in the full-scale tunnel at a designated Mach and Reynolds number. The investigation included measurements of the surface static pressures along the chord for six spanwise stations, for a large angle-of-attack range, and for several angles of yaw.

Altitude performance and operational characteristics of 29-inch-diameter tail-pipe burner with several fuel systems and flame holders on J35 turbojet engine

Description: From Summary: "An investigation of turbojet-engine thrust augmentation by means of tail-pipe burning has been conducted in the NACA Lewis altitude wind tunnel. Several fuel systems and flame holders were investigated in a 29-inch-diameter tail-pipe burner to determine the effect of fuel distribution and flame-holder design on tail-pipe-burner performance and operational characteristics over a range of simulated flight conditions. At an altitude of 5000 feet, the type of flame holder used had only a slight effect on the combustion efficiency."

The effect of torsional flexibility on the rolling characteristics at supersonic speeds of tapered unswept wings

Description: From Summary: "An analysis is presented of the effect of torsional flexibility on the rolling characteristics at supersonic speeds of tapered unswept wings with partial-span constant-percent-chord ailerons extending inboard from the wing tip. The geometric variables considered are aspect ratio, taper ratio, aileron span, and aileron chord. The shape of the wing-torsional-stiffness curve is assumed and the twisting moment is considered to result solely from the pressure distribution caused by aileron deflection, so that the necessity of using a successive-approximation method is avoided."

Tests of the NACA 64-010 and 64A010 Airfoil Sections at High Subsonic Mach Numbers

Description: Memorandum presenting aerodynamic characteristics of the NACA 64-010 and 64A010 airfoil sections as determined from wind-tunnel tests at Mach numbers from 0.3 to 0.9. Comparisons are made which indicate the only significant differences in the characteristics of the two sections to be a consistently greater lift-curve slope and an approximately 10-percent greater maximum section lift coefficient at Mach numbers above 0.7 for the NACA 64-010 airfoil section.

Altitude Performance of AN-F-58 Fuels in British Rolls-Royce Nene Single Combustor

Description: "An investigation was conducted with a single combustor from a British Rolls-Royce Nene turbojet engine to determine the altitude performance characteristics of AN-F-58 fuels. Three fuel blends conforming to AN-F-58 specifications were prepared in order to determine the influence of fuel boiling temperatures and aromatic content on combustion efficiencies and altitude operational limits. The performance of the three AN-F-58 fuels was compared in the range of altitudes from sea level to 65,000 feet, engine speeds from 40- to 100- percent normal rated, and flight Mach numbers of 0.0 and 0.6" (p. 1).
