Design for conversion of UCF's supersonic wind tunnel to a wind tunnel with hypersonic capability by Huseyin S Sivasligil( )

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

A supersonic wind tunnel, currently in existence at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida, is examined to determine feasibility for conversion to a wind tunnel with hypersonic capability. Computational data are presented, and the determination is made that the existing wind tunnel can be converted if alterations and additions are made. These changes include replacement of the existing two dimensional nozzle with a two dimensional nozzle specifically designed for operation at Mach number 7, and the addition of a vacuum tank and heater. The use of an axisymmetric nozzle design is recommended for conversion to Mach numbers higher than 7. It alleviates the throat design problems caused by the combination of high stagnation enthalpies and large area ratios
A performance comparison of solar radiation predictive models for both fixed and tracking surfaces by William F Marion( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Accurate performance prediction for a system utilizing solar energy requires accurate estimates of the solar radiation received by the collector surface. This thesis compares the performance of five different diffuse solar radiation models in estimating the diffuse radiation received by a tilted surface in the warm, humid climate of Central Florida. The following models were studied: Isotropic Model, Temps and Coulson Model, Klucher Model, Hay Model, and Perez Model. The models were evaluated for both a fixed south facing surface and for three different tracking schemes suitable for photovoltaic applications. Model estimates were then compared to the solar radiation data collected at the Florida Solar Energy Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida. Based on smallest root-mean-square error, the Perez model gave the best performance. For all the models, the root-mean-square error for the tracking surfaces was significantly greater than that for the fixed south facing surface. Actual solar radiation received by a tracking surface was greater than indicated by model estimates, and was most evident on clear days for the early morning and late afternoon hours. Changes in the mean bias error for different periods of the year demonstrated that the models are also seasonally dependent

A computational model to estimate the thickness of the waterfilm due to rain on the upper surface of an airfoil by Padmanabha Reddy Chappidi( )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Based on a two-phase boundary layer approach, a computational model is proposed to estimate the thickness of the waterfilm due to rain on the upper surface of an airfoil. The coupling between the air boundary layer and the water film is established by the conservation of mass and momentum at the interface. By a simple coordinate transformation, the interface is conformed to the finite difference grid system. Trajectory analysis of a raindrop of 1 mm diameter shows that the impingement of drops is high near the leading edge of the airfoil and decreases downstream. The finite difference equations of air/waterfilm are based on a Crank Nicholson scheme. The solution of finite difference equations at the initial station indicates a film thickness of 0.01 mm. Marching downstream along the surface of the airfoil gives raise to stability problems in the finite difference equations

The effect of winglet twist and toe angle on the drag of a high aspect ratio wing by Thomas Thorpe Moore( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Winglets have been shown to significantly reduce the lift induced drag. Different parametric studies have identified important winglet characteristics, but none have examined effects on drag from varying winglet twist and toe angle. The purpose of this research report is to examine the drag reducing effect of winglet twist and toe angle on a transport type high aspect ratio wing. By using a cost-effective three dimensional vortex-lattice program which included two dimensional profile drag, the effect of winglet twist was found to have a moderate drag reduction against an untwisted winglet for the same toe angle. For the wing-winglet configuration studied, a minimum total drag was obtained when the winglet has 2.8 degrees toe out and 2.5 degrees wash-in twist. A more sophisticated computer program was used to find areas of boundary layer separation, which were evident from the output results. If the winglet has a large enough toe out to prevent interference drag caused by separated flow at the wing-winglet juncture, winglet twist can be varied to reduce the total drag compared to an untwisted winglet
Proposals for energy conservation measures for a specific small business by Scott Wayne Snapp( )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A case study into energy conservation measures for a specific building has been made. Primary emphasis is directed towards conserving energy necessary for heating the building. Once the building outlay and the scope of energy usage trends are established, different conservation actions are considered. Extensive measurements and observations on the building were made to gather data on areas, materials, thicknesses, and means of heating the building. The goal of such action was to compare the magnitude of heat loss from different sections of the building. With this information it can be understood where to insulate, and the significance of air leaks so that appropriate action can be taken. To improve the way that present energy sources are utilized, suggestions are made to enhance the furnace efficiency, revamp the heating system to eliminate the more expensive electric heat, and supplement heating requirements by burning the waste oil that is available. The possibility of using solar and wind energy is introduced for future consideration. At present, heating costs are about $4300 per year. As an indication of the significance of the research, the resulting savings the first year would be $4200m and annually thereafter, $2900, achievable with an estimated investment of $9200. This projection suggests a simple payback of 2.7 years

A Forecast of Army Aviation Training Research and Development Requirements for the Period 1985-2000. Volume 2. Appendices( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This research note presents the results of a survey designed to identify U.S. Army aviation system and subsystem acquisitions projected for the time period of 1985 to 2000 which will require behavioral research to support development of new aircrew training methods and equipment. Survey results are presented in questionnaire format, as they were originally obtained, together with information on scoring model weighting, and a complete listing of the bibliographical references. This research is intended to assist the Army in identifying behavioral research requirements for future Army aviation aircrew training before the new aviation systems and subsystems are introduced. The lead time provided the early initiation of behavioral research programs should aid the development of effective training systems. Requirements for the behavioral research needed to support Army aviation training programs in the time frame 1985 to 2000 are described in this report. This document presents an integrated and future-oriented review of U.S, Army aviation training R & D needs. (Author)
Boundary layer on a continuous flat plate in parallel flow with similar and non-similar boundary conditions by Vaughn H.M Faber( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is a computational analysis of the incompressible laminar boundary layer on a continuous moving surface. The skin friction and heat transfer variations on a moving plate with similar and non-similar (constant) mass transfer at the wall are obtained for 210 cases for the similar boundary solution and 60 cases for the non-similar solution. Both cases were solved numerically using the fourth order Runge-Kutta algorithm. For the non-similarity case, the local non-similarity method as described by Sparrow, Quack and Boerner was used. The analysis shows that the shear stress for both the similar and non-similar cases is higher when the velocity of the wall is greater than the free stream velocity. It decays with increasing mass transfer at the wall. The shear stress also increases as the velocity difference is enlarged. Analysis was also made to determine the heat transfer from the plate for the similar boundary layer cases. The results of the analysis show that heat transfer is greatest when the wall velocity equals the free stream velocity. Also, heat transfer was enhanced by increasing the injection parameter and decays with increasing velocity difference. Practical applications of this flow field are extrusion of porous plastic sheets, quenching of large perforated metallic sheets, and water condensing on aircraft during flight. Water condensation during flight is of interest in the problem of aircraft icing
Parametric shape generation of aerodynamic and structural objects for aerodynamic, structural and radar cross-section analysis by Franklin C Basile( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis describes the design and development of software to parametrically build three-dimensional aerodynamic objects or shapes for various engineering design and analysis activities. The software is designed to generate and display sufficient geometric output to completely define the object. Parameters are entered through a prompting sequence which determines the type of object and the amount of geometry needed to describe the object. Geometry created by this program will act as the baseline model for aerodynamic , structural, and radar cross-section analysis. An integral part of the program is the complete 3-D viewing capability. Interactive global display capability allows for visualization of the model from any direction. Input of a viewing direction or an eye-point position will automatically shift the viewer to the correct orientation in space while scaling and centering the model on the display. Once the object geometry has been verified and accepted, it is converted to a surface model by a second program developed at the Martin Marietta Orlando Aerospace Company, and formatted for input into aerodynamic analysis programs such as S-HABP (Supersonic-Hypersonic Arbitrary Body Program) for lift and drag calculations at multiple angles of attack and trim conditions and/or CAMS (Computer Aided Missile Synthesis) for trajectory data calculations under various flight regimes. The geometry may also be formatted for input to the stress and dynamic mode analysis program NASTRAN or the physical optics scattering program POSCAT which is used to predict radar signal returns of an object at any desired frequency. Program design, geometry generation, and data manipulation techniques are presented in detail
