Analysis of experimental low-speed loss and stall characteristics of two-dimensional compressor blade cascades

Description: From Introduction: "In the present report, the concept of velocity diffusion is applied in an analysis of blade losses expressed in terms of the fundamental parameter of wake momentum thickness. Restrictions and limitations involved in the application of the results to cascade performance analyses are discussed."

AN ANALYSIS OF POWER REACTOR FUEL REPROCESSING

Description: This report presents an analysis of the projected economies and processing capacity requirements for a power reactor fuel reprocessing industry based on the recovery of fertile and fissionable materials from presently proposed power reactors within tbe confines of the continental United 8tates for the next five to ten years. An analysis of the present general state of development of a technology required for such an Industry is given. A summary of results of power reactor reprocessing chemical and engineering development at Oak Ridge National Laboratory from July 1955 through December 1956 is given. (auth)

Brief Studies of Turbojet Combustor and Fuel-System Operation With Hydrogen Fuel at -400 Degrees F

Description: Memorandum presenting a single J33 combustor and an experimental tubular combustor incorporating a fuel vaporizer as operated with gaseous hydrogen at temperatures slightly above the boiling point of the fuel. Data were obtained to explore possible effects of the fuel temperature on combustor performance and on the control and measurement of fuel flow.

Comparison of Experimental and Theoretical Zero-Lift Wave-Drag Results for Various Wing-Body-Tail Combinations at Mach Numbers Up to 1.9

Description: "Comparisons are made of experimental and theoretical zero-lift wave drag for several nose shapes, wing-body combinations, and models of current airplanes at Mach numbers up to 1.0. The experimental data were obtained from tests in the Ames 6- by 6-foot supersonic wind tunnel and at the NACA Wallops Island facility. The theoretical drag was found by use of linear theory utilizing model area distributions" (p. 1).

Comparison of NACA 65-series compressor-blade pressure distributions and performance in a rotor and in cascade

Description: An investigation has been conducted to compare the performance of NACA 65-series compressor blades in two-dimensional cascade with that in an axial flow compressor. Blade pressure distributions were obtained by the use of a mercury-seal pressure-transfer device. The comparison indicated that cascade data accurately predicted the turning angle and blade pressure distribution obtained in the compressor at design conditions.
