Cooperative Measurements of Radio Fading in 1925

Description: Scientific paper issued by the Bureau of Standards over studies conducted on radio fading. As stated in the abstract, "the series of measurements on fading were devoted to studies of fading effects during the sunset period, effects during the solar eclipse of January 24, the fading variations throughout a 24-hour day, and the effects of high transmitting power on fading" (p. 419). This paper includes tables, maps, illustrations, and photographs.

Relation of Hydrogen and Methane to Carbon Monoxide in Exhaust Gases From Internal-Combustion Engines

Description: The relation of hydrogen and methane to carbon monoxide in the exhaust gases from internal-combustion engines operating on standard-grade aviation gasoline, fighting-grade aviation gasoline, hydrogenated safety fuel, laboratory diesel fuel, and auto diesel fuel was determined by analysis of the exhaust gases. Two liquid-cooled single-cylinder spark-ignition, one 9-cylinder radial air-cooled spark-ignition, and two liquid-cooled single-cylinder compression-ignition engines were used.

A Theory for Primary Failure of Straight Centrally Loaded Columns

Description: "A theory of primary failure of straight centrally loaded columns is presented. It is assumed that the column cross section and the load are constant throughout the length. Primary failure is defined as any type of failure in which the cross sections are translated, rotated, or translated and rotated but not distorted in their own planes" (p. 141).

Warping Instability in Long Rods

Description: Abstract. If a pile rod gets bowed within its cooling tube it becomes warmer on the side which approaches the tube wall, and thermal expansion tends to warp it in the same direction as the original displacement. This was discussed roughly in N-601, and it was there concluded that the mechanism was not important for an isolated short slug. In connection with current development of continuous jacket (cartridge) assemblies, it seems desirable to look at this question again. In this case it is poss… more

Spectra and diffusion in a round turbulent jet

Description: "In a round turbulent jet at room temperature, measurement of the shear correlation coefficient as a function of frequency (through band-pass filters) has given a rather direct verification of Kolmogoroff's local-isotropy hypothesis. One-dimensional power spectra of velocity and temperature fluctuations, measured in unheated and heated jets, respectively, have been contrasted. Under the same conditions, the two corresponding transverse correlation functions have been measured and compared" (p. … more

Effect of an Autopilot Sensitive to Yawing Velocity on the Lateral Stability of the Douglas D-558-II Airplane

Description: A theoretical investigation has been made to determine the effect on the lateral stability of the Douglas D-58-II airplane of an autopilot sensitive to yawing velocity. The effects of inclination of the gyro spin axis to the flight path and of tire lag in the autopilot were also determined. The flight conditions investigated included landing at sea level, approach condition at 12,000 feet, and cruising at 50,000 feet at Mach numbers of 0.80 and 1.2. The results of the investigation indicated th… more

Large-Scale Flight Measurements of Zero-Lift Drag at Mach Numbers from 0.90 to 1.95 of 1/14-Scale Model of the Northrop MX-775B Pilotless Aircraft with Small Body

Description: A flight test was made a t high subsonic, transonic, and supersonic speeds and at high Reynolds numbers to determine the zero-lift drag of a 1/14-scale model of the Northrop MX-775B pilotless aircraft with small small body. The triangular wing of the model had 67.5 deg leading-edge sweep and 15 deg. trailing-edge sweep, The wing airfoil sections were modified NACA 0004 sections. The drag coefficient based on total wing area was 0.0107 at Mach number 1.60. At transonic speeds the maximum drag co… more

Free-Spinning-Tunnel Investigation to Determine the Effect of Two Nose Designs on Spin and Recovery Characteristics of a 1/20-Scale Model of the McDonnel XF3H-1 Airplane: TED No. NACA DE 343

Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation in the 20-foot free-spinning tunnel on a 1/20-scale model to determine the effect of two alternate nose designs on the spin and recovery characterstics of the McDonnel XF3H-1 airplane. The results indicated that, in order to insure satisfactory recovery from any developed spin obtained in the airplane with either of the two alternate nose designs, it may be necessary to use ailerons deflected with the spin in conjunction with rudder reversal, as was the ca… more

Investigation of a triangular wing in conjunction with a fuselage and horizontal tail to determine downwash and longitudinal-stability characteristics: transonic bump method

Description: Report presenting the results of an experimental investigation of the downwash and longitudinal stability characteristics of a semispan, triangular-wing airplane model with a horizontal tail. Lift, drag, and pitching-moment data re presented for the wing-fuselage combination. Results indicated that the model with the tail on or below the wing-chord plane possessed satisfactory stability characteristics throughout the test range of lift coefficient.

Monitoring Thermal and Resonance Neutron Flux

Description: The monitoring of thermal and resonance neutron flux in a thermal reactor having high flux over periods of time from 1 to 12 months using think Co foils is considered. Special attention is paid to the many correction factors to be applied to the activation data; neutron temperature, effective cadmium cutoff energy, burnout of Co59 and Co60, and decay of Co60. Results on a homogeneity test of 10 mil, 0.08% Co-A1 alloy foils is given.

Formation and Combustion of Smoke in Laminar Flames

Description: "The nature and formation of smoke and its combustion were investigated. Smoke, which consist of tiny mesomorphous crystals tightly packed into popcorn-ball-like particles that agglomerate to give filaments, was found to contain about 5 percent of the hydrogen originally present in the fuel. Factors affecting smoke formation were studied in both diffusion flames and premixed Bunsen flames. It is suggested that smoking tendency increases with increasing stability of the carbon skeleton of the mo… more

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the hydrodynamic characteristics of a scale powered dynamic model of a patrol-type seaplane designed by the Glenn L. Martin Company. The seaplane had a high-aspect-ratio wing and a T-tail with an all-movable stabilizer. A comparison was made between two forebody configurations, one with a sharp forebody keel in cross section and the other with the forebody cross section rounded in the vicinity of the keel.
