Low-lift-to-drag-ratio approach and landing studies using a CV-990 airplane by Berwin M Kock( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results are presented of a flight-test program utilizing a CV-990 airplane, flow in low-lift-to-drag-ratio (L/D) configurations, to simulate terminal area operation, approach, and landing of large unpowered vehicles. The results indicate that unpowered approaches and landings are practical with vehicles of the size and performance characteristics of the proposed shuttle vehicle. Low L/D landings provided touchdown dispersion patterns acceptable for operation on runways of reasonable length. The dispersion pattern was reduced when guidance was used during the final approach. High levels of pilot proficiency were not required for acceptable performance.--P. [i]
Development of the non-frangible wheel for B-58 aircraft by James Alfred Ford( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents the results of testing a non-frangible wheel assembly which was installed on the B-58 aircraft. The purpose of the test was to develop a wheel configuration capable of performing under maximum gross weight hot day take-off conditions with blown tires. Fifteen taxi runs plus a take-off and landing wer conducted between December 21, 1960 an February 28, 1961. The final wheel configuration as developed during these tests is suitable for an emergency take-off in the event of tire failure. However, outboard wheel bearing seals must be improved to consistently retain the bearing lubricant
B-58A Heavy weight take-off refusals by R. K Ransone( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A series of eleven refused take-offs were conducted to obtain performance data for the B-58 Flight Manual at the design limit capability of the aircraft tires, wheels, and brakes, and to determine and demonstrate the most effective stopping technique
