Theory of flows in compressible media with heat addition by Jürgen Zierep( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A systematic survey is undertaken of the theory of the effect of a given heat addition on the flow of a compressible medium. Here steady flows, both one-dimensional and multi-dimensional, linear and nonlinear, are treated. Consideration is given to addition of mass and momentum to a streamtube as well as of energy. Interesting equivalences arise here. The heat can be distributed continuously in the flow field or added at fronts. For practical applications, the reduction of the drag of a body in flight by heat addition in the flow field is important. At extremely high velocities the problem arises of propulsion by external combustion. Here, the energy is to be transferred directly to the flowing medium, at the high velocity. For the evaluation of such an energy addition, reference is made to the propulsive efficiency, as well as the lift and drag of the body
Experiments on management of free-stream turbulence by R. I Loehrke( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of various passive devices (screens, perforated plates, porous foam, and honeycomb-like matrices formed with closely packed plastic drinking straws) on free-stream turbulence and mean velocity profiles are studied in air with hot-wire anemonetry and in water using hydrogen-bubbles visualization. These 'turbulence manipulators' are viewed as operators which suppress the level of the incoming turbulence and generate, primarily through documented instabilities, new turbulences with scales characteristic of the device and its shear layers. In this sense these manipulators can be used to control, manage and/or modify the incoming turbulence flow to yield the one appropriate to the application
Aerodynamic testing at high Reynolds numbers and transonic speeds by Dietrich Küchemann( Book )

6 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a contribution to a 1971 NATO seminar on aerodynamical testing facilities, a brief report is given on the outcome of a specialists' meeting organized by the fluid dynamics panel of AGARD and held at Gottingen. The best technical advice available within AGARD leads to the conclusion that one or several large new windtunnels would contribute immensely to the effectiveness of a large number of aerospace systems now planned or contemplated within the NATO nations

Some recent developments in planar inviscid transonic airfoil theory, by Hideo Yoshihara by Hideo Yoshihara( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some recent efforts to calculate planar inviscid supercritical flow over airfoils are reviewed giving typical results achieved. The hodograph procedures of Nieuwland and Boerstoel, and Garabedian and Korn are first reviewed whic yield shockless profiles. The unsteady finite difference procedure of Magnus and Yoshihara is then described, and its use then illustrated by several lifting examples with shocks. This is then followed by a description of two steady procedures. The first is that of Murman and Cole, who used a line relaxation procedure to solve a boundary value problem composed of the transonic perturbation equations with planar boundary conditions. The second is the procedure of Steger and Lomax who used the exact equations, and quasi-planar boundary conditions, and the finite difference relaxation procedure of Murman and Cole. The review is concluded by making a brief assessment of the various methods. (Author)
Recent advances in matrix methods of structural analysis by J. H Argyris( Book )

On the flow quality necessary for the large European high- Reynolds-number transonic windtunnel LEHRT by J. P Hartzuiker( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LEHRT is meant to provide aerodynamic data at high Reynolds numbers of high standard in a relatively short running time (distated by economic reasons). This implies that the flow quality in LEHRT has to be excellent. Quantitative requirements for turbulent level as well as for pressure fluctuations have been developed in this report
Concerning the flow about ring-shaped cowlings. Part 12 - Two new classes of circular cowls by Dietrich Küchemann( Book )

4 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For application in practice for annular radiator fairings and similar arrangements, two new classes of circular cowls are developed by theoretical method, and investigated in a systematic test series regarding their behavior under various working conditions
Concerning the flow about ring-shaped cowlings of finite thickness : Part I by Dietrich Küchemann( Book )

4 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is shown how one may obtain, in a simple manner, the forms of ring-shaped bodies from existing tables of functions according to the customary method of superposition of flow due to singularities and parallel flow. A number of examples of the forms and pressure distributions of annular source bodies with and without hub body are given, and the inlet conditions of such ring-shaped cowlings are investigated. Furthermore, the annular bodies of finite length are indicated that correspond to Joukowsky profiles for the two-dimensional case. The examples are to give a basis for the design of cross-sectional forms of ring-shaped cowlings and a survey of the flows to be expected
Jet diffusion in proximity of a wall by Dietrich Küchemann( Book )

3 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When auxiliary jet engines are installed on airframes; as well as in some new designs, the jet engines are mounted in such a way that the jet stream exhausts in close proximity to the fuselage. This report deals with the behavior of the jet in close proximity to a two-dimensional surface. The experiments were made to find out whether the axially symmetric stream tends to approach the flat surface. This report is the last of a series of four partial test reports of the Goettingen program for the installation of jet engines, dated October 12, 1943. This report is the complement of the report on intake in close proximity to a wall
Concerning the flow about ring-shaped cowlings : part IX - the influence of oblique oncoming flow on the incremental velocities and air forces at the front part of circular cowls by Dietrich Küchemann( Book )

3 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dependence of the maximum incremental velocities and air forces on a circular cowling on the mass flow and the angle of attack of the oblique flow is determined with the aid of pressure-distribution measurements. The particular cowling tested had been partially investigated in NACA TM 1327
Concerning the flow about ring-shaped cowlings by Dietrich Küchemann( Book )

2 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The investigations carried out in a previous report (NACA TM 1325) concerning the flow about ring-shaped cowlings were extended by taking a circulation about the cowling into consideration. The present second report treats bodies of infinite length with approximately smooth entrance. The circulation was caused by distributing vortex rings of constant density over a stream surface extending to infinity. Furthermore, the influence of a hub body on such cowlings was dealt with. The examples treated are meant to give the designer a basis for his design

The influence of thickness and length of a hub projecting from an inlet opening was investigated on one of the two new classes of circular cowls reported in NACA TM 1360

Concerning the flow about ring-shaped cowlings by Dietrich Küchemann( )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The measurements of part V (reference 1) of this series of reports, which concerned comparatively long ring profiles, are supplemented by measurements on shorter rings as they are used for shrouded propellers and cowlings of ring-shaped radiators. Mass-flow coefficients and profile drags are given. Furthermore, it has to be determined how far the potential theory describes the flow phenomenon with sufficient accuracy and whether the present theory for the calculation of thin annular profiles yields useful profile forms and is suitable for determination of the mass flow for thick profiles
