Macrolaminate particle composite material development( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes work accomplished on the development of macrolaminate particle composites. Specimens made from cubical shaped particles had better oxidation resistance and higher compressive strength than those made using plate-like particles. Specimens made using rectangular shaped particles with one axis elongated have nearly comparable oxidation and compressive properties to those made from cubical particles and have higher flexural strength. Flexural strength, compressive deformation and weight loss due to oxidation increase with increasing metal content in the composite. The rate of weight loss due to oxidation increases with increasing metal content. Results from hot pressing, isostatic pressing and warm pressing experiments are summarized. Substantial improvements in sintering of the composite have not been realized either by increasing pressure in the vacuum furnace or through use of wet hydrogen. Yielding in flexural specimens prior to ultimate failure was obtained in specimens sintered in wet hydrogen and not in those sintered in vacuum. (Author)
Statistical-Dimensional Analysis: An Application to the Assessment of Crater Configuration( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Definition of crater related environments is influenced by a large number of variables potentially governing the phenomena. The large body of data is derived from many events of different character. A method to exploit this heterogeneous body for prediction is presented. Methods of dimensional analysis are used to reduce the number of independent variables through the introduction of nondimensional pi-groups. More importantly, this allows a common basis for comparing data from grossly dissimilar data bases. These include field events having different soil, stratigraphy and moisture content, and different explosive type, size and configuration, as well as laboratory data in accelerated reference frames. Successive combination of nondimensional variables is then accomplished using a step-wise regression analysis to generate scaling laws which provide relationships among the variables. Because all the various data are compared on a common basis, the statistics resulting from a large base provide higher confidence in predictions as the quantitive uncertainties are less than for each data base considered separately. Correlation of apparent crater volume was used as a pilot model to demonstrate the technique. (Author)

Research and development of advanced propulsion systems study( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Research and Development of Advanced Propulsion Systems Study was directed toward the development of a method for defining the desirable characteristics of booster systems in the 1million to 20-million pound thrust regime. An investigation into the means of reducing costs of a booster system was made by the adoption of a design philosophy that places primary emphasis on low costs, and the secondary emphasis on performance. Final conclusions of the study are: LO2/LH2 are the best propellants to minimize system dollars per pound of payload in orbit; A building-block booster system will minimize total dollars per pound of payload in orbit; Aluminum semimonocoque construction now shows the least dollars per pound payload in orbit; The plug engine will allow a minimum dollars per pound of payload in orbit system; The development of a LO2/LH2 engine in the 1.5million to 3.5-million-pound-thrust class is required (the discrete size selected depends on a more precise definition and agreement of the missions and payloads); and A go-ahead on an engine and launch vehicle system development of the type studied, added to presently planned cryogenic utilization, will require expansion of liquid-hydrogen manufacturing facilities.

Wideband magnetoelastic frequency selective limiter for vhf( Book )

2 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first six months' progress is summarized for the construction of a frequency-selective limiter using parametrically generated subharmonic magnetoelastic modes in ferrimagnetic material. The choice of the optimum material is found to involve consideration of the effects of saturation magnetization, anisotropy, magnetoelastic coupling, and spin wave linewidth. The anisotropy is found to be undesirable when operating of VHF due to desaturation effects and a reduction in mode density caused by the interaction of the anisotropy-contributed and dipolar-contributed ellipticities. Spin wave saturation is found to restrict the dynamic range rather than linear circuit leakthrough. The threshold level is found to be highly dependent on the fill factor of the circuit as well as material parameters. The optimum orientations of the material in the applied bias magnetic field were found to depend on saturation magnetization and anisotropy. The test results have been obtained using doped Yttrium Iron Garnet oriented in the 100 direction. The minimum thresholds have been on the order O dBm, and dynamic ranges of more than 15 dB have been measured. Selectivities corresponding to Q values of 1,000 to 100,000 are easily obtainable.

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the means of minimizing the value of the criterion either by decreasing costs or increasing payload. The use of clusterable modules of various thrust levels in both upper and lower steps, 0.6- to 10.0-million pounds of thrust, was studied and shown to have economic merit. Effects of chamber-pressure increases, engine type, and upper-step propellants on the criterion were also studied. No advantage existed for the first and last items but an advantage did exist for the plug-type engine. A study of hydrogen-tank-insulation requirements indicated it was necessary and economically defensible. A solid-propellant booster and a monopropellant vehicle were studied, compared to the hydrogen/oxygen vehicle, and found to be less economical. The state-of-the-art of cost reduction in engine and vehicle development and production was investigated, evaluation tools were described, and exploratory cost-reduction studies were completed.

Panel flutter analyses and experiments in the mach number range of 5.0 to 10.0( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Panel flutter experiments and analyses were conducted from 5.0 to 10.0 for two basic panel configurations. One configuration consisted of flat, rectangular, isotropic panels clamped on all four edges; the other configuration consisted of flat, rectangular, structurally two-dimensional panels clamped on leading and trailing edges with free side edges. Extensive vibration tests have been conducted and are reported. Flutter tests of the clamped-clamped panels were conducted to evaluate the effects of length to width ratio, thickness, static pressure differential, and Mach number (M = 5 to 6). Flutter tests of the clamped-free panels were conducted to determine the effects of midplane stress and Mach number (M - 5 to 10). (Author)
Spatial Displays as a Means to Increase Pilot Situational Awareness( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

At least three elements influence the performance of an operator who must make a system achieve a desired goal: (1) the dynamics of the system itself, (2) the nature of tile possible inputs, and (3) the means whereby the operator views the information concerning the desired and actual state of the system (e.g., Poulton, 1974; Wickens, 1984; and Wickens, 1987). In conventional airplanes manual control involves the coordination of "inner loop" control. In this task the pilot is responsible for continuous manipulation of the controls to compensate for disturbances. Primary displays (fig. 1) provide the several essential flight parameters which the pilot is required to monitor, interpret, transform, and integrate. It has long been recognized that intense concentration is necessary for a pilot to achieve high tracking performance using only "raw data". The underlying need for such concentration stems from the effort necessary to obtain timely error, error rate, and control input information in each of the three flight axes. Precision instrument approaches often have higher minimums if a suitable flight director or autopilot is not available and in use. Most pilots have come to depend on these aids. Some pilots express doubt about the precision of their own tracking ability any time they are unavailable

As defense budgets decline, progress in acquisition reform advances, and worldwide emerging threats become apparent, the need is obvious for a strong industrial base to maintain our economic and military strength and retain our position of global leadership in the 21st century. It also becomes clear that our success depends on integrating the civil and military sides of industry. We need only change the rules to find that solution
Industrial Equipment Survival/Recovery Feasibility Program during Event DICE THROW( )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inexpensive techniques for protecting industrial equipment from nuclear attack environments hold great promise for permitting early repair of industrial machinery and its restoration to production following an attack. Without protection, typical industrial machines suffer 'moderate' damage at about 5 psi and 'severe' damage at about 10 psi. Equipment items representative of fragile machinery, normal machinery and rugged machinery were tested at 40, 80, 200, and 600 psi in the DICE THROW field test event excuted October 6, 1976. The test specimens were placed in trenches excavated at the four appropriate ranges from the DICE THROW explosive charge center. The specimens then were surrounded by a crushable material (aluminum chips) and covered at depths from one foot to five feet with earth material removed in excavating the trenches. The results of these experiments indicate that with the use of crushable fill and with burial depth sufficient to permit earth arching, machines can be protected against overpressures up to 600 psi. However, when depths of covering were too shallow for an earth arch to develop, severe damage occurred

Analytical and experimental investigation of aircraft metal structures reinforced with filamentary composites-- phase ii - structural fatigue, thermal cycling, creep, and residual strength by B Blichfeldt( )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Specimens representative of metal aircraft structural components reinforced with boron filamentary composites were manufactured and tested under cyclic loading, cyclic temperature, or continuously applied loading to evaluate some of the factors that affect structural integrity under cyclic conditions. Bonded, stepped joints were used throughout to provide composite-to-metal transition regions at load introduction points. Honeycomb panels with titanium or aluminum faces reinforced with unidirectional boron composite were fatigue tested at constant amplitude under completely reversed loading. Results indicated that the matrix material was the most fatigue-sensitive part of the design, with debonding initiating in the stepped joints. However, comparisons with equal weight all-metal specimens show a 10 to 50 times improved fatigue life. Fatigue crack propagation and residual strength were studied for several different stiffened panel concepts, and were found to vary considerably depending on the configuration. Weight savings up to 30 percent may be realized with the better concepts when compared to all-metal structure. Composite-reinforced metal specimens were also subjected to creep and thermal cycling tests. The creep tests at 50 percent of tensile ultimate load were inconclusive due to large scatter in the limited tests. Thermal cycling of stepped joint tensile specimens resulted in a ten percent decrease in residual strength after 4000 cycles
