The Effect of Air Jets Simulating Chines or Multiple Steps on the Hydrodynamic Characteristics of a Streamline Fuselage
Description: Memorandum presenting preliminary tests in order to determine the effect of forced ventilation on the hydrodynamic characteristics of a scale model of a streamline fuselage of a hypothetical transonic airplane. The forced ventilation consisted of air ejected at about 300 feet per second through small orifices distributed over the fuselage bottom in a series of patterns simulating chines or multiple steps. Results regarding resistance, effective hydrodynamic lift, trim, spray, and air flow are provided.
