Flight test method development for a quarter-scale aircraft with minimum instrumentation
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-03)
A flight test method was developed for a quarter-scale model aircraft with minimum onboard instrumentation for the determination of the Drag Polar, the Thrust Required curve and the Power Required curve. The test included ...
Optimizing HF antenna systems on the Dolphin and Sea Hawk helicopters
Making an aircraft available and modifying it to test various antenna systems and configurations is extremely costly. The computer model is an excellent alternative means of analyzing antenna systems for optimum communication ...
Flow field measurements using hotwire anemometry
A computer controlled data acquisition system utilizing hotwire anemometry has been designed, built and installed in the Naval Postgraduate School Low Speed Wind Tunnel Facility. All relevant wind tunnel data is obtained ...
Microcomputer software support for classes in aircraft conceptual design
The conceptual phase of aircraft design determines the general size and configuration of an aircraft. Many calculations are performed in assessing the optimum parameters. The calculations are often lengthy and iterative ...
Computer-controlled data acquisition and analysis
A computer-controlled data acquisition and analysis system was designed, built and tested. All of the required elements of a complete data acquisition system were assembled, including transducers, amplifiers, signal ...
Educational aids in aircraft combat survivability
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1983-12)
This thesis presents four additions prepared for the text-book "The Fundamentals of Aircraft Survivability Analysis and Design, by Professor Robert E. Ball. A set of homework problems with solutions was developed for the ...
Design of a data acquisition and reduction system for fatigue testing
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1981-09)
A data acquisition and reduction system has been created for aircraft materials fatigue testing. The system uses HP-9835 Desktop Calculator, an HP-2240A Measurement and Control Processor and a Materials Testing System ...
Aerodynamic stabilization of an electrical discharge for gas lasers
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1980-09)
This work reports on a study of a subsonic, turbulent, diffuse discharge with potential application to electric discharge convection lasers. Two methods of turbulence generation have been investigated; namely, a pulsed-jet ...
