A literature survey of the problem of aircraft spins
(Monterey, California; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-09)
The prediction of aircraft spin characteristics has defied complete scientific analysis. There are, however, a number of research techniques which have been utilized in attempts to understand the mechanism of spin. ...
Evaluation of an electronic wind-tunnel balance
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-03)
The three- component electronic wind-tunnel balance installed in the 3.5 by 5.0 foot subsonic tunnel of the Aeronautics Department of the Naval Postgraduate School was evaluated for system problem areas. The nonlinear ...
The effect of tangential gas velocity on combustion instability in a liquid-gas combustor
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971)
A small, uncooled liquid rocket motor was utilized to examine the effects of the magnitude and direction of a steady vortex velocity on combustion instability. The rocket operated on normal heptane and air, with air flow ...
Evaluation of the longitudinal static stability of the US-2A aircraft.
(Naval Postgraduate School, 1970-04)
An evaluation of the longitudinal static stability of a Navy- US- 2A aircraft was made. The aircraft was equipped with a Data Acquisition System capable of sensing and recording aerodynamic data other than that given ...
Hydrogen-oxygen relaxation effects on spacecraft operations in the 70 km to 100 km altitude region.
Hydrogen and oxygen reactions in the earth's atmosphere between 70 Km and 100 Km may at times serve as a relaxation mechanism for this region of the atmosphere. Energy stored in this region as a result of intense solar ...
An Investigation of the Effects of Acceleration and Strand Length on Post-Fire Residue of Aluminized Propellants.
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1970-04)
Aluminized propellant strand lengths from one-quarter to two inches were burned at accelerations from zero to 1000g at a mean combustion pressure of 500 psia to study the effect of acceleration and strand length on ...
