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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
Influence of axial and radial clearances on the performance of a turbine stage with blunt edge non-twisted blades
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967-09)
An investigation of compressible flows with large whirl components
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967-06)
This investigation was conducted to determine the losses in the scroll and inlet guide vanes of a dual discharge, radial-inflow turbine. Difficulties are encountered in such tests because the air is discharged from the ...
Effect of stator blade orientation on the performance of an axial flow compressor
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967)
A mean streamline analysis of the effect of stator blade orientation on the performance of an axial flow compressor was performed by means of a computer program. Measurement were made on a 3-stage axial flow compressor ...
