An investigation of two-propeller tilt wing V/STOL aircraft flight characteristics
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-06)
The results of a two-propeller tilt wing aircraft static stability and performance simulation utilizing a NASA-Ames computer code, Tilt Wing Application General (TWANG), are presented with comparisons to actual test ...
Computational and experimental investigation of the aerodynamic characteristics of a windsurfing sail section
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-12)
In this thesis results of a computational and experimental investigation of the aerodynamic characteristics of a sail section used in windsurfing sails are presented. State-of-the-art computational methods (panel, direct ...
A computational and experimental investigation of the propulsive and lifting characteristics of oscillating airfoils and airfoil combinations in incompressible flow
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-09)
Computational and experimental methods have been used to systematically study one and two airfoils undergoing unsteady motion. first, a single airfoil analysis with the modified computer code, U2DIFF. thrust, efficiency, ...
Acoustic emission from spectrum fatigue cracks in 7075 aluminum
The E-2C Hawkeye, a U.S. Navy aircraft, has experienced problems with fatigue cracks in its wings. This problem was studied in the laboratory using a representative specimen under simulated flight loading. Acoustic emission ...
Numerical studies of compressible flow over a double-delta wing at high angle of attack
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1990-03)
The objective of this work is the investigation of vortical flows at high angles of attack using numerical techniques. The first step for a successful application of a numerical technique, such as fimite difference or ...
The effects of nozzle geometry on particle size distribution in a small two dimensional rocket motor
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-09)
Laser diffraction particle sizing was conducted at the nozzle entrance, inside the nozzle, and in the exhaust plume of a small two-dimensional rocket motor using two different metallized propellants to determine the effects ...
