Theoretical investigation of the flutter characteristics of supersonic cascades with subsonic leading-edge locus
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1975-06)
Supersonic flow past a semi-infinite array of flat plate cascaded airfoils is analyzed using a linearized method of characteristics procedure. For a cascade having subsonic leading edge focus, but otherwise arbitrary ...
Computer studies of aircraft fuel tank response to ballistic penetrators.
A major goal of the hydraulic ram survivability program for aircraft fuel tanks is the development of an economical computer code which accurately predicts the pressure in the fluid, the response of the tank walls, and ...
The Coanda effect with jet displacement over planar, concave, and convex walls
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-12)
Borque and Herman presented an extensive paper analyzing the separate effects of deflection angle and offset distance on the reattachment of flow issuing from a two-dimensional incompressible turbulent jet to an adjacent ...
An experimental study of a vane controlled jet flap gust alleviation system
An experimental effort to demonstrate the feasibility of an active gust alleviator using a fluidically actuated jet flap control system was undertaken. The wing model had a variable deflection jet at the trailing edge and ...
Kalman filtering techniques applied to airborne direction-finding and emitter location
The objective of the analytical study was to develop an optimal emitter location algorithm using Kalman filtering techniques to filter emitter bearing angles-of-arrival information in a airborne, multi-emitter environment. ...
Sound-slide programmed learning
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1974-03)
In an attempt to improve upon the traditional "lecture and textbook" mode of teaching, an Audio-Visual Response Teaching Machine was utilized for certain topics in gasdynamics. This teaching system was based on three ...
Measurements of jet dispersions simulated in an aeronautical wind tunnel
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-09)
A neutrally stable atmospheric surface layer was suitably simulated in a low speed wind tunnel by tripping the boundary layer with a fence and letting the turbulent flow develop over a length of roughness elements. Jet ...
A computer study of the buckling of an imperfect cylindrical shell
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-09)
An existing computer program for the geometrically nonlinear analysis of arbitrarily loaded shells of revolution was modified to incorporate initial geometric imperfections into the buckling solution of an axially loaded ...
An analysis of the effect of a flight director on pilot performance in a helicopter hovering task
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-03)
A fixed-base simulator evaluator of a flight director for maintaining longitudinal control of a helicopter in the hover mode of operation was made. Test subjects performed ninety-second precision hovering tasks utilizing ...
On-line data acquisition and instrumentation improvements for the transonic turbine test rig.
(Naval Postgraduate School, 1972)
The Transonic Turbine Test Rig located in the Turbo-Propulsion Laboratory of the Naval Postgraduate School is used to analyze axial turbine stage performance. The Test Rig is designed to separately measure stator and ...
