Aerodynamic heating of a wing as determined from a free-flight rocket-model test to Mach number 3.64

Description: From Introduction: "The primary purpose of the wing instrumentation was to obtain data for use in design of NACA research missiles; however, it is believed that the wing is representative of typical supersonic designs and that the data will be of general use and interest. Only the wing data are reported herein."

Performance characteristics of cylindrical target-type thrust reversers

Description: From tests on cylindrical target-type thrust reversers, it was found that the reverser frontal area, lip angle, end-plate angle, and end-plate depth had important effects on reverse-thrust performance. Frontal area, reverser depth, lip angle, and end-plate angele had important effects on the spacing required for unrestricted nozzle flow. For reverse-thrust ratios greater than 64 percent, the reversed flow attached to the 7 degree cowl in quiescent air. Swept-type cylindrical reversers were generally unstable. The thrust-modulation characteristics of a cylindrical target-type thrust reverser were found to be satisfactory.

Wind-tunnel investigation at low speed of effects of sideslip on static longitudinal trim and static lateral stability characteristics of three fighter-type airplane models

Description: Report presenting a wind-tunnel investigation at low speed to determine the effects of sideslip on the static longitudinal trim characteristics of three fighter-type airplane models. The three models consisted of a 45 degree swept-wing model with a horizontal tail geometrically similar to the wing and mounted slightly below the wing, a clipped-delta-wing model with a horizontal tail mounted in a moderately high position, and a 60 degree delta-wing with no horizontal tail. Results regarding static longitudinal stability, variation of pitching-moment coefficient with sideslip, effect of modifications to Model B on static longitudinal stability and variation of pitching-moment coefficient with sideslip, and static lateral stability are presented.

Motion of a ballistic missile angularly misaligned with the flight path upon entering the atmosphere and its effect upon aerodynamic heating, aerodynamic loads, and miss distance

Description: From Summary: "An analysis is given of the oscillating motion of a ballistic missile which upon entering the atmosphere is angularly misaligned with respect to the flight path. The history of the motion for some example missiles is discussed from the point of view of the effect of the motion on the aerodynamic heating and loading. The miss distance at the target due to misalignment and to small accidental trim angles is treated. The stability problem is also discussed for the case where the missile is tumbling prior to atmospheric entry."

Component Performance Investigation of J71 Experimental Turbine, Part 2, Internal-Flow Conditions with 97-Percent-Design Stator Areas

Description: An experimental investigation of the internal-flow conditions of a J71 experimental turbine equipped with 97-percent-design stator areas was conducted at equivalent design speed and near equivalent design work. The results of the investigation indicate that the stage work distribution closely approximates design, the actual distribution being 44.1, 33.4, and 22.5 percent for the first, second, and third stages, respectively. The first-, second-, and third-stage efficiencies were 0.894, 0.858, and 0.792, respectively. The first and second stages exhibited loss regions near the hub and tip at the rotor blade outlets. The hub loss region is attributed to stator secondary flows, and a contributing factor to the tip loss region may be the high design diffusion on the rotor blade suction surface near the tip. The loss in the third stage is appreciably greater than that in the first or second stage. The fact that the third rotor is unshrouded and has a nominal tip clearance of 0.120 inch may contribute to the higher loss in the tip region of the third stage.

Component performance investigation of J71 experimental turbine 1: Over-all performance with 97-percent-design stator areas

Description: From Summary: "The over-all component performance characteristics of a J71 experimental three-stage turbine with 97 percent design stator areas were determined over a range of speed and pressure ratio at inlet-air conditions of approximately 35 inches of mercury absolute and 700 degrees R. The turbine break internal efficiency at design operating conditions was 0.877; the maximum efficiency of 0.886 occurred at a pressure ratio of 4.0 at 120 percent of design equivalent rotor speed. In general, the turbine yielded a wide range of efficient operation, permitting flexibility in the choice of different modes of engine operation."

Flutter Tests of a 1/25-Scale Model of the B-36J/RF-84F Tip-Coupled Airplane Configuration in the Langley 19-Foot Pressure Tunnel

Description: Report discussing tests of a model of a B-36J/RF-84F tip-coupled airplane to evaluate the flutter characteristics where bomber-body freedoms are allowed and to obtain information about the dynamic stability characteristics. The variables studied were the skew angle of the fighter-bomber coupling, the fighter longitudinal position, the fighter and bomber loading, angle of sideslip, degrees of body freedom, and number of fighters. Flutter was primarily found to occur when the fighter roll frequency was near the natural chordwise-bending frequency of the bomber wing.
