Spectroscopy of Uranyl Salts in the Solid State

Description: From Introduction: "The interpretation of the fluorescence and absorption spectrum of the uranyl ion, indicated in this introduction, is based on the spectroscopic work of Nichols, Howes and co-workers (1914-1919), Dieke and van Heel (1925), Moerman and Kraak (1939), and Freymann and co-workers (1946-1948); on infrared studies (cf., Section 3 below) and Raman spectra; but most of all, on the work of Dieke, Duncan, and co-workers, carried out in 1943-1944 under the Manhattan District program. In the present chapter we will review briefly the earlier investigations in the field of uranyl salt and spectroscopy and give a somewhat more detailed summary of the results of Nichols and Howes and, particularly, of Dieke and co-workers."

Investigation of an on-off inlet shock-position control on a 16-inch ram-jet engine

Description: Report presenting an investigation of a shock-positioning control on a 16-inch ramjet engine at a range of Mach numbers and angles of attack in the supersonic wind tunnel. The control operated at all conditions under which the engine could be manually operated. Prediction of the control-system dynamic behavior can be applied by treating the system as having pure dead time.

Stability and Control Characteristics at Low Speed of a Modified 1/10-Scale Model of the MX-1554A Design

Description: Report discussing the low-speed stability and control characteristics of a modified model of the MX-1554A with a triangular wing and triangular stabilizing surfaces, which are designed to give more satisfactory stability and control than previous versions. Other modifications included an increase in slotted-flap span, redesigned tip aileron, fuselage tail cone, and speed brakes. Results provided include the effect of flow-control devices, tank and pylon location, a ground board, rotary stability derivatives, and a single support strut on the stability, control, and aerodynamic characteristics.

Investigation of Drag and Static Longitudinal and Lateral Stability Characteristics of a 1/15-Scale Model of the Grumman F11F-1F Airplane at Mach Numbers of 1.56, 1.76, 2.06, and 2.53

Description: Report presenting an investigation in the Langley Unitary Plan wind tunnel to determine the drag and static longitudinal and lateral stability characteristics of a model of the Grumman F11F-1F airplane at Mach numbers 1.56, 1.76, 2.06, and 2.53. The investigation included the effects on performance and stability of modifications, including a wing-root leading-edge fillet and horizontal tails with negative dihedral of 10 degrees and 30 degrees. Information regarding net external minimum drag coefficients, neutral points, directional stability, and positive effective dihedral is provided.

Results of the Flight Test of a 0.13-Scale Rocket-Boosted Model of the McDonnell F4H-1 Airplane Between Mach Numbers of 0.20 and 1.90

Description: Report discussing tests performed with a rocket-boosted model of the McDonnell F4H-1 airplane at transonic and supersonic speeds. Special attention is given to the external drag coefficient at various Mach numbers. Large pitching oscillations were also noted at Mach numbers between 0.20 and 1.17, which made it impossible to determine the drag at that range.

Preliminary Investigation of Reflections of Oblique Waves from a Porous Wall

Description: "A porous wall was used in an attempt to eliminate reflections of oblique waves from a tunnel wall. Calculations were made of the required resistance characteristics of a wall in order that the flow through the wall, due to the pressure difference across a shock wave, would equal the component normal to the wall of the flow behind the shock wave. The resistance characteristic of a sintered bronze wall was measured and the reflections of waves impinging on the wall were observed at a Mach number of 1.62" (p. 1).
