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."

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.

A correlation of low-speed, airfoil-section stalling characteristics with Reynolds number and airfoil geometry

Description: From Summary: "The low-speed stalling characteristics of a large number of airfoil sections have been correlated with Reynolds number and a single airfoil ordinate near the leading edge as the correlation parameters. The correlation is appropriate only to airfoils without high-lift devices in flows of very low turbulence and with aerodynamically smooth surfaces."

Description of a Thermonuclear Reactor Based on the Use of a Layer of Relativistic Electrons to Confine and Heat the Plasma

Description: A long layer of rotating relativistic electrons was employed in a proposed scheme of a thermonuclear reactor to provide a closed pattern of magnetic field liens and to heat the plasma to fusion temperature. Parameters of a production machine and experimental model are presented. The general requirements for the plasma confinement at adequate density and temperature are summarized. Establishment of the electron layer is described. The equilibrium of the plasma under these conditions was investigated and the stability of this equilibrium distribution determined. (M.C.G.)

ELECTRONIC SPECIFIC HEAT OF SODIUM TUNGSTEN BRONZE

Description: The design and operation of a calorimeter for use in the temperature range 1.8 to 4.2 deg K are presented, and the methods used in the treatment of data and calculation of results are discussed. The heat capacities of several Na- W bronzes (Na/sub x/WO/sub 3/) were determined in the temperature interval 1.8 to 4.2 deg K. Samples having x equal to 0.89, heat capacities are described adequately by the sum of two terms, one linear and one cubic in temperature. The electronic specific heat of each sample is obtained by evaluating the coefficient of the linear term, and the Rebye eharacteristic temperature derived from the coefficient of the cubic term. Rensities of one-electron energy levels at the Fermi energy, and effective electronic masses are calculated from the electronic specific heats. A plot of the density of states as a function of energy can be made if it is assumed that this curve is independent of Na concentration. The justification of this assumption is discussed in the light of current theories of the solid state. The density of states curve rises rapidly at higher energies, and this rise is interpreted in terms of the filling of a Brillouin zone or of an overlap of two bands. (auth)
