High Reynolds number
A Navier-Stokes code, developed by N.L. Sankar, and an Interactive Boundary Layer code, developed by Tuncer Cebeci, are implemented for high Reynolds number, low Mach flows over a NACA 0012 airfoil. Upper surface pressure ...
A holographic investigation of particulates in metallized solid fuel ramjet combustion.
An investigation was conducted pursuant to the development of a holographic technique to be used in the study of particulates in metallized solid fuel ramjet combustion. Additionally, a technique for generating a time-space ...
An aerodynamic performance evaluation of the NASA/Ames Research Center Advanced Concepts Flight Simulator
The results of an aerodynamic performance evaluation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)/Ames Research Center Advanced Concepts Flight Simulator (ACFS), conducted in association with the Navy-NASA ...
Computer program for conceptual helicopter design
The conceptual phase of helicopter design requires that many calculations and iterations be completed. Often specifications are exceeded in the latter stages of the design, requiring a complete rework of the design to ...
Controlled diffusion compressor blade wake measurements
A controlled-diffusion compressor stator blade-element design was re-tested in an academic cascade wind tunnel to obtain data with which to assess viscous computational prediction methods. Tests were conducted near design ...
An investigation of particle size measurement using non-intrusive optical techniques in a gas turbine combustor
This thesis investigated the use of three-wavelength light transmission and forward-angle scattered light intensity ratio techniques to determine the effects of fuel additives on particle sizes and mass concentrations in ...
An experimental investigation of the effects of swirling air flows on the combustion properties of a solid fuel ramjet motor
A series of reacting flow tests of a sold fuel ramjet were conducted with different air inlet swirl. Cold flow measurements of the air flow at the exit plane of the tube-in-hole injector were used to determine the Swirl ...
An interactive discrete controls analysis option (ORACLS)--for the CONTROLS analysis package on the IBM 3033
This thesis discusses the implementation of a discrete control systems analysis option, ORACLS, for the CONTROLS analysis package. The option encompasses a collection of FORTRAN programs that facilitate the design and ...
Computer program for performance prediction of tandem-rotor helicopters
A computer program for the HP-41 series calculator is presented which predicts the rotor shaft horsepower required for tandem-rotor helicopters to a given set of helicopter parametrics and flight conditions. Three simplified ...
A Program Manager's handbook for system safety and Military Standard 882B
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985-03)
The Program Manager's role in the acquisition of new weapon systems encompass many disciplines, some of which he may have little, if any, training or experience in handling. One of these areas, which until recent years ...
