Effects of inlet icing on performance of axial-flow turbojet engine in natural icing conditions

Description: A flight investigation in natural icing conditions was conducted to determine the effect of inlet ice formations on the performance of axial-flow turbojet engines. The results are presented for icing conditions ranging from a liquid-water content of 0.1 to 0.9 gram per cubic meter and water-droplet size from 10 to 27 microns at ambient-air temperature from 13 to 26 degrees F. The data show time histories of jet thrust, air flow, tail-pipe temperature, compressor efficiency, and icing parameters for each icing encounter. The effect of inlet-guide-vane icing was isolated and shown to account for approximately one-half the total reduction in performance caused by inlet icing.

Army Gas-Cooled Reactor Systems Program Monthly Progress Report: April 1959

Description: Abstract: This monthly progress report covers the activities of the Army Gas-Cooled Reactor System Program for April 1959. The program includes a water-moderated heterogeneous reactor (Gas-Cooled Reactor Experiment I), a graphite-moderated homogeneous reactor (Gas-Cooled Reactor Experiment II), a mobile gas-cooled reactor (ML-1), and the coordination of the Gas Turbine Test Facility. [It reports] the progress of each project, the associated tests and data evaluation, the applicable design criteria, and the fabrication of reactor components" (p. 1).

Brief Review of Heat Transfer Problems Encountered in the Production of Magnetic Fields

Description: The design of internally cooled electrical coils for the production of high intensity magnetic fields presents many new aspects and combinations of the familiar modes of heat transfer. However, the customary methodology appears to be sufficient for preliminary analysis and understanding of those problems. This methodology comprises the derivation of a qualitative, approximate equation expressing the relative performance of the various parts of a system, followed by an examination of this equation in order to locate the limiting features of the system. These features are then investigated by more powerful methods, which in turn provide guidance for development research in the laboratory. (auth)

Experimental Static Aerodynamic Forces and Moments at Low Speed on a Missile Model During Simulated Launching From the 25-Percent-Semispan and Wing-Tip Location of a 45 Degree Sweptback Wing-Fuselage Combination

Description: Report presenting an investigation at low speed in the 300 mph tunnel to determine the static aerodynamic forces and moments on a missile model during simulated launching from 25-percent-semispan and wing-tip locations of a wing-fuselage combination. Results regarding the differences in location and effects induced by the fuselage are provided.

Experimental investigation of the effects of plan-form taper on the aerodynamic characteristics of symmetrical unswept wings of varying aspect ratio

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine the effects of plan-form taper on the aerodynamic characteristics of a series of symmetrical, unswept wings with thicknesses of 8-percent chord. The wings were tested with four different bodies of revolution over a range of Mach numbers. Results regarding the lift, drag, pitching-moment, lift-curve slope, lift-drag ratio, and pitching-moment curve are provided.

Measurement and Calculation of Blade Torsional Deflection of Three Supersonic-Type Propellers

Description: Report presenting an investigation to determine the blade torsional deflection of three supersonic-type propellers at various operating conditions. Blade-torsional deflection was found to produce appreciable results that can be predicted by theory with good accuracy. Results regarding the efficiency, thrust coefficient, and power coefficient are provided.

The Stratigraphy of the Upper Part of the Bone Valley Formation and its Relation to the Leached Zone

Description: From abstract: The two topmost zones of the Bone Valley formation at the Homeland mine are a phosphate-cemented quartz sandstone and an underlying pebbly and clayey quartz and phosphate sand characterized by graded bedding. This sequence is found in every other area of the land-pebble field. Therefore, these zones are considered to be stratigraphic units and the transition between them to be a key horizon.

THREE NEW DELAYED ALPHA EMITTERS OF LOW MASS

Description: Two new positron active isotopes, B{sup 8} and Na{sup 20}, have been found to decay to excited states of Be{sup 8} and Ne{sup 20}, which in turn decay 'instantaneously' by alpha emission. Their half-lives are 0.65 {+-} 0.1 sec. and 1/4 sec. respectively. N{sup 12} is also found to have a low energy positron group which leads to an {alpha}-unstable excited state in C{sup 12}. The masses of B{sup 8} and Na{sup 20} are 8.027 and 20.015 respectively. B{sup 8} decays by a 13.7 {+-} 0.3 Mev positron, through the same excited state of Be{sup 8} as does Li{sup 8}. Estimates of the energies of the excited state in C{sup 12} and Ne{sup 20} are made.

Interim report No. 1, RT 105-577-A: Irradiation of solid and cored hot pressed fuel elements

Description: In order to evaluate the performance of uranium slugs canned by the hot press method, several tubes of this metal were charged at C Pile and scheduled for irradiation until a specified number of ruptures had occurred. At the present time, all scheduled ruptures of hot-pressed slugs have been obtained. This report summarizes the irradiation experience under this test and the results obtained to the present time, and presents conclusions which are drawn from this experience.
