A summary of available knowledge concerning skin friction and heat transfer and its application to the design of high-speed missiles

Description: Review of certain characteristics necessary to determine skin friction and heat transfer on the surfaces of high-speed missiles, including temperature recovery, skin-friction coefficients and heat-transfer coefficients of laminar and turbulent boundary layers, and the position of the transition from laminar to turbulent flow. A comparison is also made between existing flight data and results computed by the boundary-layer momentum-integral method in an attempt to establish design criteria for missiles that are very different from the typical shape.

Dynamic stability and control characteristics of a delta-wing vertically rising airplane model in take-offs, landings, and hovering flight

Description: Report presenting an investigation by means of tests of a flying model in still air to determine the dynamic stability and control characteristics of a delta-wing vertically rising airplane in take-off, landing, and hovering phases of flight. The uncontrolled pitching motion consisted of an unstable oscillation which was more unstable with a rearward than with the normal center-of-gravity location.

Rolling effectiveness of all-movable wings at small angles of incidence at Mach numbers from 0.6 to 1.6

Description: From Summary: "Experimental data have been obtained of the rolling effectiveness of several all-movable wing configurations by means of rocket-propelled test vehicles in free flight. The results are compared with some available methods of estimation. These results validate the use of the simple equation derived by a strip integration and originally presented in NACA RM L50G14b over a wide range of application as a means of estimating the rolling effectiveness of all-movable wings."

Jet effects on pressures and drags of bodies

Description: From Introduction: "The propulsive jet that discharges from the base of a missile body or nacelle may, by interaction with external stream, cause important drag and stability changes. This paper presents some results of recent investigations by the Lewis and Langley laboratories of the jet effect on body end pressures and drag at zero lift."

Experimental investigation of typical constant- and variable-area exhaust nozzles and effects on axial-flow turbojet-engine performance

Description: Report presenting testing of several turbojet engines with both constant- and variable-area nozzles to extend full-scale nozzle performance to higher exhaust-nozzle pressure ratios and to investigate the effects of constant- and variable-area nozzles on turbojet-engine operation. Results regarding the different types of nozzles are provided.

Large-Scale Flight Measurements of Zero-Lift Drag at Mach Numbers from 0.87 to 1.39 of 1/10-Scale Models of the Northrop MX-775A Missile

Description: A flight investigation was made at high subsonic, transonic, and supersonic speeds and at high Reynolds numbers to determine the zero-lift drag of a 1/10-scale model of the Northrop MX-775A missile and a scale model of the missile fuselage. The model of the complete configuration has a 45deg swept wing of aspect ratio 5.5 and a 33deg swept vertical fin. The body model was stabilized by three 45deg swept fins. The-drag-rise Mach number for the model of the complete configuration was approximately 0.96. The drag coefficient based on total wing area was 0.0330 at Mach number 1.39. The drag coefficient of the body model less fin drag was approximately 55 percent that of the complete model at the same Mach number. Addition of the wing to the fuselage apparently resulted in a favorable drag interference near Mach number 1.0.

Aerodynamic Characteristics of Bodies at Supersonic Speeds: A Collection of Three Papers

Description: The three papers collected here are: 'The Effect of Nose Shape on the Drag of Bodies of Revolution at Zero Angle of Attack.', 'Base Pressure on Wings and Bodies with Turbulent Boundary Layers', and 'Flow over Inclined Bodies'. The subject of the first paper is the drag of the nose section of bodies of revolution at zero angle of attack. The main object of the second paper is to summarize the prinicpal results of the many wind tunnel and free flight measurements of base pressure on both bodies of revolution and blunt trailing edge airfoils.

The effects of increasing the leading-edge radius and adding forward camber on the aerodynamic characteristics of a wing with 35 degrees of sweepback

Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation to determine the effects of a section modification on the aerodynamic characteristics of a wing with 35 degrees of sweepback. The wing was modified by increasing the leading-edge radius of the NACA 64A010 section and adding a small amount of camber to the forward portion of the chord. Lift, drag, pitching-moment, and trailing-edge-flap hinge-moment characteristics of the modified wing are compared with results from the original wing.

Investigation of the Structural Damping of a Full-Scale Airplane Wing

Description: "An investigation to determine the structural damping characteristics of a full-scale airplane wing was conducted by the shock-excitation method wherein the wing was loaded to a predetermined deflection and the load suddenly released. The test specimen vibrated at its fundamental bending frequency of 1.69 cycles per second. Only the first 2 or 3 cycles showed any indication of a higher frequency being superimposed upon the fundamental bending frequency" (p. 1).
