Measurements Through a Hot Cell Window Using Optical Tooling

Description: S>Optical tooling has been evaluated for the measurement of physical dimensions of radioactive parts through hot cell windows. Instruments were set up outside of a four foot thick lead glass window and by means of a grid plate which had been accurately scribed, a ''contour map'' or calibration chart of the window variations was recorded. Although the window was not specially selected, the readings were within 1.0% of the true dimension without using correction factors. One of the calibration chart with the window reduced the error to plus or minus 0.1%. The method is considered feasible and sufficiently fast for a wide variety of hot cell measurements. A pin point light source is suggested as a simple check for selective assembly of lead glass laminates during manufacture of hot cell windows to provide control of optical properties. (auth)

Expanded Scale Process Development of the Electrolytic Production of Thorium From ThCl$sub 4$ in Externally Heated Electrolytic Cells

Description: The commercial feasibility of the electrolytic process for Th production has been demonstrated. The cell produced 7 lb. of good quality metal per hour. A cathode cooling system was developed. The major construction materials, Ni and graphite, were satisfactory. The process yield was 86%. (T.R.H.)

Theoretical Investigation of the Performance of Proportional Navigation Guidance Systems: Effect of Method of Positioning the Radar Antenna on the Speed of Response

Description: Memorandum presenting a linear theoretical analysis made of the performance of three proportional navigation guidance systems installed in a given supersonic, variable-incidence, boost-glide, antiaircraft missile at Mach numbers of 2.7 and 1.3. Three guidance systems are compared on the basis of the maximum obtainable speed of response of the missile and guidance-system combination consistent with adequate stability. Results regarding the effect of method of positioning the radar antenna on the speed of response, effect of Mach number on response, and effect of networks are provided.

Theoretical Investigation of the Performance of Proportional Navigation Guidance Systems-Effect of Method of Positioning the Radar Antenna on the Speed of Response

Description: Memorandum presenting a linear theoretical analysis of the performance of three proportional navigation guidance systems installed in a given supersonic, variable-incidence, boost-glide, antiaircraft missile at Mach numbers of 2.7 and 1.3. It is shown that, with the antenna stabilized in space, the effect of component lags on the response is small, so that the speed of response is small, so that the speed of response can be made to approach closely that of the airframe alone.

Theoretical Investigation of the Performance of Proportional Navigation Guidance Systems: Effect of Missile Configuration on the Speed of Response

Description: Memorandum presenting a comparison of the maximum speed of response that can be attained by three missile configurations, a variable-incidence-wing, a canard, and a tail-control, in combination with a particular proportional navigation guidance system. The configuration that allows the most rapid overall guidance-system response depends on the control-system characteristics. Results regarding the rate-only feedback and rate and normal acceleration feedback are provided.

Theoretical Investigation of the Effects of the Artificial-Feel System on the Maneuvering Characteristics of the F-89 Airplane

Description: The possibility of overshooting the anticipated normal acceleration as a result of the artificial-feel characteristics of the F-89C airplane at a condition of minimum static stability was investigated analytically by means of an electronic simulator. Several methods of improving the stick-force characteristics were studied. It is shown that, due to the lag in build-up of the portion of the stick force introduced by the bobweight, it would be possible for excessive overshoots of normal acceleration to occur in abrupt maneuvers with reasonable assumed control movements. The addition of a transient stick force proportional to pitching acceleration (which leads the normal acceleration) to prevent this occurring would not be practical due to the introduction of an oscillatory mode to the stick-position response. A device to introduce a viscous damping force would Improve the stick-force characteristics so that normal acceleration overshoots would not be likely, and the variation of the maximum stick force in rapid pulse-type maneuvers with duration of the maneuver then would have a favorable trend.

Investigation of the Use of a Stick Force Proportional to Pitching Acceleration for Normal-Acceleration Warning

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the feasibility of modifying the transient portion of the stick force in abrupt maneuvers in order to eliminate inadvertent normal-acceleration overshoots. The modification consists of additional stick force proportional to a quantity which leads the normal acceleration. The characteristics introduced by the inclusion of the force were considered to be very desirable by pilots.
