Aerodynamic characteristics at Mach number of 4.06 of a typical supersonic airplane model using body and vertical-tail wedges to improve directional stability

Description: Report presenting an investigation at Mach number 4.06 on a typical supersonic airplane model with a 40 degree sweptback wing. The purpose of the investigation was to determine the effectiveness of using wedges on the body and on the vertical tail to increase the static directional stability. Results regarding the longitudinal characteristics and lateral characteristics are provided.

Analysis of two-spool turboprop-engine characteristics

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this report is to present the results of an analytical investigation of the engine characteristics of two-spool engines with high over-all compressor pressure ratio (12.0 at design). Some of the turbine design problems encountered in a single-spool engine with current compressor pressure ratio (7.32 at design) were investigated in reference 1. The investigation was extended in reference 2 to cover the effect of mode of engine operation on the turbine design requirements and engine performance for a single-spool engine with current compressor pressure ratio."

Calculated and Measured Stresses in Simple Panels Subject to Intense Random Acoustic Loading Including the Near Noise Field of a Turbojet Engine

Description: "Flat 2024-T3 aluminum panels measuring 11 inches by 13 inches were tested in the near noise fields of a 4-inch air jet and turbojet engine. The stresses which were developed in the panels are compared with those calculated by generalized harmonic analysis. The calculated and measured stresses were found to be in good agreement. In order to make the stress calculations, supplementary data relating to the transfer characteristics, damping, and static response of flat and curved panels under periodic loading are necessary and were determined experimentally. In addition, an appendix containing detailed data on the near pressure field of the turbojet engine is included" (p. 703).

Effect of fuel properties on liner temperatures in a single tubular turbojet combustor

Description: Report presenting the effect of fuel properties on combustion-liner temperatures in a single tubular combustor at combustor-inlet conditions representative of those encountered in turbojet-powered high-flight-speed aircraft. Testing was conducted with three liquid jet-type fuels that varied in voltaility and aromatic content. The variations in fuel properties were found to produce only moderate and not always consistent changes in average liner temperature.

Effects of string-support interference on the drag of an olgive-cylinder body with and without a boatail at 0.6 to 1.4 Mach number

Description: Report presenting tests to determine the effects of sting-support interference on the zero-lift drag of two bodies of revolution (with and without boattailing). The sting support consisted of a constant-diameter sting followed by a sting flare terminating in a cylindrical support. Results regarding the effect of sting length and sting diameter are provided.

Experimental Investigation of Effects of Combustion-chamber Length and Inlet Total Temperature, Total Pressure, and Velocity on Afterburner Performance

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the effects of afterburner-inlet total temperature, total pressure, velocity, fuel-air ratio, and afterburner combustion-chamber length on afterburner performance and stability limits using a cylindrical afterburner installed in a duct test rig. The afterburner was investigated over a range of total temperature, total pressure, velocity, and afterburner fuel-air ratios.

Experimental Investigation of Modified Cast-Cored Blades Having Hollow Tip Sections

Description: Memorandum presenting the development of fabrication techniques to provide cast-cored turbine blades with hollow tip sections. Two types of modified cast-cored blades that provided an 11-percent weight reduction from a fully cast-cored blade and a 13-percent weight reduction from a standard uncooled blade were investigated in a turbojet engine modified for air-cooling. Results regarding the experimental heat-transfer, temperature comparison with other cooled-blade configurations, calculated and experimental blade temperatures, cooling-air pressure drop, and structural reliability are provided.

Investigation at High Subsonic Speeds of the Static Longitudinal and Lateral Stability Characteristics of Two Canard Airplane Configurations

Description: "The present investigation was conducted in the Langley high-speed 7-by 10-foot tunnel to determine the static longitudinal and lateral stability characteristics at high subsonic speeds of two canard airplane configurations previously tested at supersonic speeds. The Mach number range of this investigation extended from 0.60 to 0.94 and a maximum angle-of-attack range of -2deg to 24deg was obtained at the lowest test Mach number. Two wing plan forms of equal area were studied in the present tests; one was a 60deg delta wing and the other was a trapezoid wing having an aspect ratio of 3, taper ratio of 0.143, and an unswept 80-percent-chord line" (p. 1).
