Analysis of two-stage-turbine efficiency characteristics in terms of work and speed requirements

Description: From Introduction: "In this report two-stage-turbine efficiency characteristics are analyzed as a function of work and speed requirements in terms of the effect of changing the required mean-section velocity diagram. The fundamental assumptions and limits used in reference 2 and 3 are also used herein."

The Application of Pulsed Neutron Sources to Criticality Measurements

Description: Abstract: Experimentally measured promp-neutron decay constants for sub-critical systems are of considerable value as normalization data for calculations of prompt-neutron time constants. A method of measuring these decay constants with a pulsed neutron source, neutron detector and multi-channel time-delay analyzer has been developed and used on a number of fast-spectrum subcritical systems. An analysis of this method based on the one-energy group, one-delayed-neutron group reactor kinetic equations is presented and discussed. The curve of neutron flux versus time predicted by the kinetic equations is compared with the observed curve obtained with a 13.1-cm. diam. enriched-uranium sphere to indicate the application and limitations of the analysis.

Component Performance Investigation of J71 Experimental Turbine 9 - Effect of First-Stator Adjustment;Internal Flow Conditions of J71-97 Turbine With 87-Percent-Design Stator Area

Description: "An experimental radial-survey investigation of the J71-97 three-stage turbine equipped with a first stator having a throat area 87 percent of the design value was conducted at one turbine operating point. The first-, second-, and third-stage mass-averaged efficiencies were 0.897, 0.843, and 0.755, respectively. The corresponding over-all turbine efficiency was 0.856" (p. 1).

Cyclotron resonance absorption by a hydrogen plasma

Description: From introduction: "The work described in this report was undertaken as part of an experimental study to determine the effectiveness of radiofrequency field in heating the ions of a hydrogen or deuterium plasma. The ultimate aim is to find a method of heating a deuterium plasma until an appreciable rate of nuclear reaction takes place."

DIMENSIONALLY STABLE ALLOYS. Interim Report

Description: The development of dimensionally stable alloys for high temperature reactor application is discussed. Cold pressing followed by sintering was determined to be the most satisfactory method. Evaluation of alloys by alpha - beta thermal cycling indicated the superiority of U--Mo and U--Nb alloys. A few specimens containing small additions of Mo, Nb, and Si were irradiation tssted in the Materials Testing Reactor. Of these, the Nb alloy (1.6 wt.% Nb) appeared to be most stable. The Mo alloys were somewhat less satisfactory and the alloys containing Si were not stable. (auth)

Effects of Internal-Area Distribution, Spike Translation, and Throat Boundary-Layer Control on Performance of a Double-Cone Axisymmetric Inlet at Mach Numbers From 3.0 to 2.0

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine the effects of initial subsonic diffusion rate, variable geometry, and throat boundary-layer control on the performance of an axisymmetric double-cone inlet. Major gains in performance at higher Mach numbers were obtained with boundary-layer control in the form of a ram scoop at the throat. Results regarding the effect of internal-area distribution, effect of spike translation, and effect of throat boundary-layer control are provided.

Flight Investigation of Factors Affecting the Choice of Minimum Approach Speed for Carrier-Type Landings of a Swept-Wing Jet Fighter Airplane

Description: Report presenting flight testing and analog-computer studies using flight-test results of a swept-wing jet fighter in the landing condition to determine the factors that influence a pilot to select the minimum approach speed for carrier-type landings. Many factors that influenced the pilot occurred in approximately the same speed range, and the quantitative determination of the influence of each factor was not possible. Results regarding measurement of airplane and engine characteristics, field-carrier landings, and analog simulation of airplane and hypothetical autopilot in high-dip maneuver at constant thrust are provided.

Investigation of conditions for spontaneous ignition and combustion efficiency of pentaborane in a small-scale combustor

Description: Report presenting an investigation using a small-scale ramjet combustor to determine the conditions for spontaneous ignition of pentaborane, amyl nitrate, propylene oxide, and JP-4 fuel. For the range of conditions investigated, the threshold of spontaneous ignition of pentaborane is primarily governed by temperature and is also influenced by burner length and configuration. Combustion efficiency was found to increase in burner length and blocked area of the flame holder.
