Elements of gasdynamics by H. W Liepmann( Book )

45 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing importance of concepts from compressible fluid flow theory for aeronautical applications makes the republication of this text particularly timely. Intended mainly for aeronautics students, the text will also be helpful to practicing engineers and scientists who work on problems involving the aerodynamics of compressible fluids. Covering the general principles of gas dynamics to provide a working understanding of the essentials of gas flow, the contents of this book form the foundation for a study of the specialized literature and should give the necessary background for reading original papers on the subject. Topics include introductory concepts from thermodynamics, including entropy, reciprocity relations, equilibrium conditions, the law of mass action and condensation; one-dimensional gasdynamics, one-dimensional wave motion, waves in supersonic flow, flow in ducts and wind tunnels, methods of measurement, the equations of frictionless flow, small-perturbation theory, transonic flow, effects of viscosity and conductivity, and much more. The text includes numerous detailed figures and several useful tables, while concluding exercises demonstrate the application of the material in the text and outline additional subjects. Advanced undergraduate or graduate physics and engineering students with at least a working knowledge of calculus and basic physics will profit immensely from studying this volume
Introduction to aerodynamics of a compressible fluid by H. W Liepmann( Book )

Perspectives in fluid mechanics : proceedings of a symposium, held on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Hans Wolfgang Liepmann, Pasadena, California, 10-12 January, 1985 by D. E Coles( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Distinguished authors discuss topics in physical oceano- graphy, transonic aerodynamics, dynamics of vorticity, numerical simulation of turbulent flows, astrophysical jets, strange attractors, human-powered flight, and thefluid mechanics of the Old Faithful geyser and of the Mount St. Helens eruption of 1980. The authors deal with specific problems, but the emphasis is usually on the way that re- search is carried out at the edge of understanding, and often on the role of new techniques, instruments, and re- search strategies
Turbulence management and relaminarisation : proceedings of the IUTAM symposium, Bangalore, India, 1987 by H. W Liepmann( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last two decades have witnessed an intensifying effort in learning how to manage flow turbulence: it has in fact now become one of the most challenging and prized techno logical goals in fluid dynamics. The goal itself is of course not new. More than a hundred years ago, Reynolds already listed factors conducive to laminar and to turbulent flow (including among them curvature and acceleration). Further more, it is in retrospect clear that there were several early instances ot successful turbulence management. Examples are the reduction in drag achieved with a ring-trip placed on the front of a sphere or the insertion of a splitter-plate behind a circular cylinder; by the early 1950s there were numerous exercises at boundary layer control. Although many of these studies were interesting and suggestive, they led . to no spectacularly successful practical application, and the effort petered out in the late 1950s. The revival of interest in these problems in recent years can be attributed to the emergence of several new factors. First of all, fresh scientific insight into the structure of turbulence, in particular the accumulated evidence for the presence of significant order in turbulent flow, has been seen to point to new methods of managing turbulence. A second major reason has been the growing realisation that the rate at which the world is consuming its reserves of fossil fuels is no longer negligible; the economic value of greater energy effi ciency and lower drag has gone up significantly

Investigations of effects of surface temperature and single roughness elements on boundary-layer transistion by H. W Liepmann( Book )

5 editions published between 1946 and 1947 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies of the flow in the wake of large, two-dimensional roughness elements are presented. It is shown that a boundary layer can separate and reattach itself to the wall without having transition take place
A theoretical investigation of the drag of generalized aircraft configurations in supersonic flow by E. W Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idealized aircraft are defined by distributions of lift and volume in three-dimensional space, and Hayes' method of drag evaluation, which is well adapted to such problems, is the fundamental tool employed. Other methods of drag evaluation are considered also wherever they appear to offer amplifications
On the contribution of turbulent boundary layers to the noise inside a fuselage by G. M Corcos( Book )

2 editions published in 1956 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In general, the analysis presented here only reduces the determination of cabin noise intensity to the measurement of the effect of any one of our variables (free stream velocity, boundary layer thickness, plate thickness or the characteristic velocity of propagation in the plate)

Counting methods and equipment for mean-value measurements in turbulence research by H. W Liepmann( Book )

2 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report deals with methods of measuring the probability distribution and mean values of random functions as encountered in turbulence research. Applications to the measurement of probability distributions of the axial velocity fluctuation and its derivative in isotropic turbulence are shown. The assumption of independent probabilites which have been used as an approximatioin in the application of zero counts to the measurement of the microscale of turbulence, is investigated
Investigation of boundary layer transition on concave walls by H. W Liepmann( Book )

2 editions published between 1944 and 1945 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transition of the boundary layer from the laminar to the turbulent regime was investigated on the concave side of a plate with a radius of curvature of 2.5 feet. The critical Reynolds number was found to be considerably lower than on a flat plate and on the concave side of the plate with a 20-foot radius of curvature previously investigated

Chemical Reactions in Turbulent Mixing( Book )

3 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work under this contract has proceeded along three main lines, an experimental program covering low heat release combustion of hydrogen and fluorine, and chemically reacting turbulent shear layers and jets in water, a theoretical model development program whose aim is to provide alternatives to gradient diffusion transport models, and a diagnostics development parallel program to advance the state-of-the-art in experimental techniques, as dictated by our main experimental effort. Substantial progress has been made in all three areas. Notably, in the experimental program, we have completed a first set of measurements in our H2 + F2 combustion facility, as well as laser induced fluorescence measurements of chemically reacting jets and shear layers in water. These experiments prove conclusively that gradient transport models are inappropriate in describing these flows. In the theoretical area, we have shown good agreement between a simple mixing model, developed under this contract sponsorship, and our measurements. In the diagnostics area, important advances have been made in laser Doppler velocimeter, high speed thermometry, laser induced fluorescence and others

A Chemical Reaction in a Turbulent Jet( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The turbulent mixing and subsequent chemical reaction of gases is an essential part of many technological processes ranging from gas furnaces to chemical lasers. Generally the chemical kinetics are well understood, but the process of turbulent mixing is not. Knowledge of where turbulent fluid is mixed on a molecular scale is critical for predicting chemical reaction rates in the flow. In this experiment the rate of a chemical reaction in an axisymmetric turbulent jet is studied, and the results are used to determine the rate of molecular mixing in the jet. A turbulent jet containing dilute ozone in an inert mixture of nitrogen and oxygen flows into a stagnant tank of nitric oxide and nitrogen. When the gases mix on a molecular scale, the ozone and nitric oxide rapidly react to produce oxygen and nitrogen dioxide. The rate at which the mixing and chemical reaction proceeds is determined by using an ultraviolet light absorption techniques to measure the time averaged ozone concentration at points throughout the jets mixing zone. The experiment establishes a criterion for determining when a reaction of known chemical kinetics is sufficiently rapid that chemical non-equilibrium has a negligible effect on the mean reactant profile
