Necessity of adopting for all aviation fields, civil or military, a single system of markers for giving the direction for starting and landing (with an automatic indicator of the direction of the wind) and of indicating the good part of the field.
A series of experiments were conducted related to the action of an airstream oscillating vertically on supporting surfaces. The object of the experiments was to verify the very interesting results of Mr. Katzmayr, Director of the Vienna Aerodynamics Laboratory, and, if possible, to obtain more complete data on the effect of the amplitude and velocity of the oscillations of the airstream. The results obtained by Mr. Katzmayr are briefly summarized. The conduct of the numerous experiments to verify his results are described in detail. Experimental results are given in tabular and graphical form.
On of the most important characteristics of an airfoil is the rate of change of lift with angle of attack, (sup dC)L/d alpha. This factor determines the effectiveness of a tail plane in securing static longitudinal stability. The application of the Gottingen formulas given here for calculating the variation of (sup Dc)L/d alpha with aspect ratio should be of interest to many aeronautical engineers. For the convenience of the engineer, a set of curves calculated by the method set forth here are given in graphical form. Also, the observed values of (sup dC)L/d alpha for the same airfoil at various aspect ratios follow the calculated curves closely.
Recital presented at the UNT College of Music Stan Kenton Hall.
The idea is advanced of making a supersonic nozzle by producing one, two, or three successive turns of the whole flow; with the result that the wall contour can be calculated exactly by means of the Prandtl-Meyer "Lost Solution.".
An investigation has been conducted to compare the performance of NACA 65-series compressor blades in two-dimensional cascade with that in an axial flow compressor. Blade pressure distributions were obtained by the use of a mercury-seal pressure-transfer device. The comparison indicated that cascade data accurately predicted the turning angle and blade pressure distribution obtained in the compressor at design conditions.
Effects of Reynolds number and angle of attack on the pressure distribution and normal-force characteristics of a body of revolution consisting of a fineness ratio 3 ogival nose tangent to a cylindrical afterbody 7 diameters long have been determined. The test Mach number was 1.98 and the angle-of-attack range from 0 degree to 20 degrees. The Reynolds numbers, based on body diameter, were 0.15 x 10(6) and 0.45 x 10(6). The experimental results are compared with theory.
