Analysis of efficiency characteristics of a single-stage turbine with downstream stators in terms of work and speed requirements

Description: One-dimensional mean-section flow and blade specific losses proportional to average specific kinetic energy are assumed in the analysis. Range of the work-speed parameter lambda considered includes low to moderate blade speeds with high specific work outputs, where critical turbojet, turbopump, and accessory-drive turbines are encountered. A diffusion factor of 0.5 limits the loading on the downstream stators. Turbine efficiences considered are total or aerodynamic, rating, and static. Efficiences of velocity-diagram types at impulse and that corresponding to values of maximum efficiency are presented and compared to indicate in what range of lambda downstream stators are beneficial as well as the attending improvements in efficiency.

Material Compatibility With Gaseous Fluorine

Description: Report presenting static tests on the compatibility of gaseous fluorine with various liquids, solid plastics, waxes, and greases at pressures of 0 and 1500 pounds per square inch gage and atmospheric temperature. Several materials were found to be compatible at atmospheric pressure, but only Teflon and ruby were compatible under static conditions at 1500 pounds per square inch gage.

Material compatibility with gaseous fluorine

Description: Static tests on the compatibility of fluorine with non-metals at atmospheric temperature eliminated many materials from further consideration for use in fluorine systems. Several materials were found compatible at atmospheric pressures. Only Teflon and ruby (aluminum oxide) were compatible at 1500 pounds per square inch gage.

Monitoring of direct chemical assay of fabricated parts

Description: The specification for the plutonium content of fabricated parts requires that for each three-months production a statistical estimate be made of process variance (variation in actual plutonium content from part to part). Prior to the fourth quarter of 1956, this requirement was met by the following indirect technique: Chemical assay was made of at least one-half the parts produced; by-difference analysis (subtraction of the measured impurities from 100 per cent) was made of all parts produced; and the chemical assay and by-difference measurements were analyzed to permit partition of the observed, between-part variance in chemical assay results into process variance and analytical variance.
