Experimental investigation on vortex shedding in flow over second-generation, controlled-diffusion, compressor blades in cascade
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-03)
An investigation of vortex shedding downstream of a cascade of second-generation, controlled-diffusion, compressor stator blades, at off-design inlet-flow angles of 31, 33 and 35 degrees and Reynolds numbers, based on chord ...
Investigation of the effect of Reynolds number on laminar separation bubbles on controlled-diffusion compressor blades in cascade
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-06)
Detailed experimental investigation of second generation, controlled diffusion, compressor stator blades at an off-design inlet flow angle was performed in a low speed cascade wind tunnel using various experimental procedures. ...
A non-linear simulation for an autonomous unmanned air vehicle
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-09)
Unmanned Air Vehicles have become increasingly important on the modern battlefield. The restrictive requirement for runways and special equipment to take off and land was partially solved by the vertical take off and landing ...
Flowfield study of a close-coupled canard configuration
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-06)
A nulling five-hole pressure probe was used to complete a flowfield survey behind a close-coupled canard and wing model set a 32 degrees angle of attack. The canard and wing were both low-aspect-ratio, highly swept, delta ...
Simulation of a rotocraft in turbulent flows
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-09)
Accurate simulation of helicopters in an at-sea-shipboard environment is desired to provide realistic operating envelopes without incurring the enormous cost of real-time flight tests. This study examines the simulation ...
Transverse vibrations of a composite cylindrical tube of circular cross section.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-09)
The transverse frequencies of vibration of laminated orthotropic cylindrical shells were studied in order to compare experimental results with results predicted by a modified Euler-Bernoulli beam theory. The structures ...
Aerodynamic analysis of a U.S. Navy and Marine Corps unmanned air vehicle
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-06)
An aerodynamic analysis was performed on a U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) called PIONEER. A low-order panel method called PMARC (Panel Method Ames Research Center) was used to obtain various aerodynamic ...
Analysis of incompressible cascade flows using state-of-the-art computer programs.
Two "state-of-the-art" computer programs, Q3DFLOW and a standard Cebeci boundary layer program as applied to aerodynamic flows in a cascade are examined. Q3DFLOW is a quasi three-dimensional finite element turbomachinery ...
Incorporation of the six dimensional, linearized equations of motion with a variable stability flight simulator.
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-09)
In this report the equations of motion for the six degrees of freedom of an aircraft were solved by an analog computer circuit. These solutions were incorporated with the instrumentation of a fixed base flight simulator ...
The effect of varying secondary stagnation temperature and molecular weight on the side force generated by gaseous injection into a supersonic stream.
This study was undertaken to investigate the effects of varying the injectant temperature and molecular weight on the flow field generated by the interaction of a secondary jet with a supersonic mainstream. The experimental ...
