[Straight Democracy, November 6, 1888]

Description: This item is from the Charles B. Moore Collection. It is a political broadside. In this document, members of political parties are identified as participating in unbecoming behavior. The identified members of the Straight Democrat party are noted to have been electioneering with African American voters. This supposed electioneering took place somewhere near the fair grounds. Supper, free whiskey, and music by the Greenville String Band were provided for the attendees of this event. Members of the Ringtail party were also identified in this broadside as participating in this political happening. The throwaway described this event as drunken debauchery. The stated objective was to halt the practice of electioneering and the political influencing which occurs at events like these.

The NACA high-speed motion-picture camera optical compensation at 40,000 photographs per second

Description: The principle of operation of the NACA high-speed camera is completely explained. This camera, operating at the rate of 40,000 photographs per second, took the photographs presented in numerous NACA reports concerning combustion, preignition, and knock in the spark-ignition engine. Many design details are presented and discussed, details of an entirely conventional nature are omitted. The inherent aberrations of the camera are discussed and partly evaluated. The focal-plane-shutter effect of the camera is explained. Photographs of the camera are presented. Some high-speed motion pictures of familiar objects -- photoflash bulb, firecrackers, camera shutter -- are reproduced as an illustration of the quality of the photographs taken by the camera.

100 Areas technical activities report -- Physics, October 1946

Description: The D Pile was down five times for scheduled shutdowns. The fifth shutdown was of short duration for the purpose of discharging temporary ``P`` columns. Details of the shutdowns are given. Three new bismuth columns were established, Special Requests were charged into seven tubes and three Special Requests were discharged. Three tubes were charged with four-inch slugs. The power level of the F Pile has been corrected for the discrepancy noted last month. Material for irradiation under the Special Request program was charged into six tubes and the B experimental hole during the month. The effect of poison columns and rods on the temperature distribution of the pile was checked for the overall content of the pile. The F Pile gained two in hours in cold, clean reactivity during the month if allowance is made for xenon poison values corresponding to 190 MW for the beginning of the month and 200 MW at the end of the month. The graphite stringer removed from the ``D`` test hole of the D Pile on 3-12-46 was studied physical radiation effects.

Tank Tests of an Alternate Hull Form for the Consolidated Vultee PB2Y-3 Airplane

Description: From Summary: "Tests have been made in Langley tank no. I of a dynamic model of the Consolidated Vultee PB2Y-3 airplane. These tests were made using an alternate hull form, the purpose of which was to reduce the bow spray and eliminate the landing instability which are objectionable features of the production design. The major differences from the PB2Y-3 hull included a deeper step to improve the landing stability , and a lengthened forebody and increased beam to reduce the sway in the propellers and on the flaps. The tests showed that the spray characteristics of the revised hull form were much better than that to the production design. In addition the take-off and landing stability of the model with the alternate hull were satisfactory."

Aerodynamic characteristics at subcritical and supercritical Mach numbers of two airfoil sections having sharp leading edges and extreme rearward positions of maximum thickness

Description: From Introduction: "A 12-percent-chord-thick wedge section and a reversed NACA 0012 section were chosen for these tests as they are representative of sections having no boat tailing and appreciable boat tailing (i.e., blunt and rounded trailing edges, respectively), and the results of this investigation are compared with those obtained from a previous investigation of the NACA 0012 section. Conclusions are drawn regarding the relative merits of the two unconventional sections and the conventional section in transonic speed range."

Stability derivatives of triangular wings at supersonic speeds

Description: "The analysis of the stability derivatives of low-aspect-ratio triangular wings at subsonic and supersonic speeds, given in NACA TN no. 1423, is extended to apply to triangular wings having large vertex angles and traveling at supersonic speeds. The lift, rolling moment due to sideslip, and damping in roll and pitch for this more general case have been treated elsewhere on the basis of the theory of small disturbances. The surface potentials for angle of attack and rolling taken therefrom are used to obtain the several side-force and yawing-moment derivatives that depend on leading-edge suction, and a tentative value for the rolling moment due to yawing" (p. 317).

Altitude Test Chamber Investigation of Performance of a 28-Inch Ram-Jet Engine 2: Effects of Gutter Width and Blocked Area on Operating Range and Combustion Efficiency

Description: Altitude-test-chamber investigation of effects of flame-holder blocked area and gutter width on performance of 28-inch diameter ram jet at simulated flight Mach number of 2.0 for altitudes from 40,000 to 55,000 feet was conducted at NACA Lewis laboratory. Ten flame holders investigated covered gutter widths from 1.00 to 2.50 inches and blocked areas from 40.5 to 62.0 percent of combustion-chamber area. Gutter width did not appreciably affect combustion efficiency.

Report for General Research July 10 to October 2, 1950 (Supporting Research Volume)

Description: The efficient prosecution of the research and process development on polonium, radium, actinium, waste disposal, and alpha-neutron sources requires the use of a wide variety of instrumental techniques such as: alpha, beta, gamma, and neutron counters and survey meters; emission, absorption, and mass spectroscopy: x-ray and electron diffraction; microbalances; and calorimeters. The complex and kaleidoscopic aspects of our research program require; (1) The application of standard instruments and techniques to a variety of problems; (2) The development of new techniques for the use of standard instruments; and (3) The development of new or improved Instruments. The sum of the above three categories constitutes the field of supporting research. The amplifier for counting pulses of wide dynamic range which was developed for counting beta particles in the presence of alphas has operated so satisfactorily that it has been decided to attempt to adopt it for neutron counting. Substantial improvement at medium counting rates has already been obtained but results at high counting rates are not as satisfactory. The development of a survey meter for monitoring fast neutrons has been under way for sometime. The attainment of higher efficiency has been attempted by the use of a dual-chambered counter tube. The tube operates with a filling of methane gas at two atmospheres pressure. The achievement of leak-proof seals and highest purity methane has been under investigation as their necessity has been indicated by tests. The development of a scintillation counter for surveying and measuring low levels of alpha activity has been continued. Recent efforts have been directed towards determining the correct voltages to be applied to the photomultiplier tube in order to operate under optimum conditions. Recent tests of the coincidence counter to detect scintillations in water containing alpha-active waste material have indicated the necessity of obtaining photomultiplier tubes with low noise ...
