Wind Tunnel Study of the Influence of Orifice Geometry and Flow Rates on the Measured Pressure Error of a Static Pressure Probe at Mach 3

Description: Abstract: Tests were conducted in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's 20-inch Supersonic Wind Tunnel to determine the effect of hole-spacing geometry on the measured pressure error due to "breathing" for a pressure-sensing probe at Mach 3.01.

A Pulse Ammeter

Description: A quantizing pulse ammeter has been designed which brackets an input pulse current peak between two preset current levels. These levels are easily selected by calibration circuits contained on the chassis. Readout is presented in the form of a Nixie visual display as well as an output which is suitable for automatic data recording.

High Velocity Shock Testing, Equipment and Methods

Description: The need for special high velocity shock testing is pointed out and equipment that has been developed to meet these needs is discussed. The concept of velocity-change and its importance in shock-testing technology is brought out. The three types of equipment discussed are: accelerated drop testers, pneumatic actuators, and air guns. Examples of each type and their capabilities and limitations are presented.

A Transistorized Reactivity Measurement System

Description: An all-transistor system has been developed to be used in measuring the reactivity of the reactor in the Sandia Engineering Reactor Facility. In operation, the system triggers a pulsed neutron source (PNS) in the reactor and counts the resulting neutron flux, thus giving a measure of the time constant of the reactor. The counting is done in eleven time-sequenced counting channels. The reactor time constant is a measure of the reactor reactivity.

Air-Gun Studies of Ferroelectric Materials (Second Printing)

Description: Specimens of two ferroelectric materials, barium titanate and lead-zirconate titanate, have been subjected to high dynamic stresses by impacting them with a projectile accelerated by an air gun. The purpose of these tests was to supplement information previously obtained using high explosives to stress the ferromagnetic materials.

Note on the Numerical Evaluation of Integrals of the Form [integral] [superscript infinity] [subscript infinity] f(x) [golden ratio constant] (x) dx, with Particular Reference to the Determiniation of the Expectation of a Function of a Normally Distributed Random Variable

Description: Abstract: A method is given for the rapid and accurate numerical integration of integrals of the form [integral] [superscript infinity] [subscript infinity] f(x) [golden ratio constant] (x) dx, where f(x) is "smooth."
