Aerodynamic heating of a thin, unswept, untapered, multiweb, aluminum-alloy wing at Mach numbers up to 2.67 as determined from a free-flight investigation of a rocket-propelled model

Description: From Introduction: "The heat-transfer data calculated from measured temperatures are compared with values calculated by the theory of Van Driest for a flat plate with laminar and turbulent boundary layers. In addition, the heat-transfer data from the flight tests are compared with data obtained from the Langley Structures Research Division of ground tests of an identical wing at a Mach number approximately equal to 1.99 in the pre-flight jet of the Langley Pilotless Aircraft Research Station at Wallops Island, Va. The stream static pressure is maintained at about 1 atmosphere, the free-stream temperature at about 75^o F, and the stagnation temperature at approximately 500 ^o F (ref.1)."

Application of a windshield-display system to the low-altitude bombing problem

Description: From Introduction: "The design and flight evaluation of an airborne target simulator for use in tracking studies of fighter-type airplanes equipped with optical gunsights have recently been reported (ref. 1). In this equipment the target airplane was represented by a movable dot of light projected on the windshield of the test airplane."

An Analysis of Pressure Studies and Experimental and Theoretical Downwash and Sidewash Behind Five Pointed-Tip Wings at Supersonic Speeds

Description: The following report covers an investigation that was done to supplement available experimental data on flow fields behind wings of an aircraft at supersonic speeds, as well as to furnish more quantitative information on the choice of the theoretical method for a given configuration and the accuracy to be expected when using such a method.

Evaluation of Gust and Draft Velocities From Flights of an AT-6 Airplane Within Cumulus Clouds July 1, 1947 to July 22, 1947 at Clinton County Army Air Field, Ohio

Description: Memorandum presenting measurements of gust and draft velocities within cumulus clouds at a certain army air field using an AT-6 airplane. The measurements were made to supplement the at a obtained with P-61C airplanes. The data are summarized in tables.

Altitude-wind-tunnel investigation of thrust augmentation of a turbojet engine IV: performance with tail-pipe burning and water injection

Description: From Introduction: "Thrust augmentation of an axial-flow-type turbojet engine by burning fuel in the tail pipe is discussed in references 1 to 3. Thrust augmentation of the same turbojet engine by water injection at the compressor inlet is reported in reference 4."

Analytical Comparison of a Standard Turbojet Engine, a Turbojet Engine with a Tail-Pipe Burner, and a Ram-Jet Engine

Description: From Introduction: "Experimental investigations (reference 1) have shown that in some cases the thrust can be more than doubled by means of tail-pipe burning. A comparison is made of a standard turbojet engine, whose thrust is augmented by tail-pipe burning, and a ram-jet engine. The performance characteristics for the ram-jet engine were computed entirely from theoretical considerations and on the assumption that the burner-inlet velocity was constant."
