Fundamentals of gas dynamics by H. W Emmons( Book )

24 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume II of the High Speed Aerodynamics and Jet Propulsion series. The series which stress the more fundamental aspects of the various phenomena that make up the broad field of aeronautical science. The aerodynamicist and gas dynamicist will find both the classical and the important new concepts of gas dynamics presented in an informative and stimulating manner. Specialists in the study of gas dynamics have contributed Sections as follows: H.S. Tsien, The Equations of Gas Dynamics; L. Crocco, One-Dimensional Treatment of Steady Gas Dynamics; A. Kantrowitz, One-Dimensional Treatment of Nonsteady Gas Dynamics; W. Hayes, The Basic Theory of Gasdynamic Discontinuities; H. Polachek and R.J. Seeger, Shock Wave Interactions; H.G. Stever, Condensation Phenomena in High Speed Flows; T.H. Von Karman, H.W. Emmons, G.I. Taylor, and R.S. Tankin, Gas Dynamics of Combustion and Detonation; S. Schaaf and P. Chambre, Flow of Rarefied Gases. Originally published in 1958. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

The ceiling jet in fires by H. W Emmons( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The steady ceiling jet is examined with a simplified "top hat" theory. Friction causes the jet to change downstream with flow, depth, and/or hydraulic jump adjustments to produce Richardson Number = 1 at the corridor exit, just as in hydraulics. Entrainment has a qualitative effect identical to friction, although there are quantitative differences. Heat transfer has, however, the opposite effect; the Richardson Number moves away from 1 as the flow proceeds. When all effects are included, high friction cases are predictable, while low friction cases are not. New experimental studies are needed to locate the reasons

The Numerical solution of compressible fluid flow problems by H. W Emmons( Book )

The large-scale bedroom fire test, July 11, 1973 : final technical report by Paul A Croce( Book )

A proposed national fire research program by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

Fire research--a trip report by H. W Emmons( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of the fire problem was investigated by the author. Fire research stations, fire departments, fireman training schools, and fire protection associations throughout the world were visited in order to obtain a more comprehensive picture of what the problem is, what we now know, and what techniques various people have discovered for the purpose of combating this problem
The Theoretical flow of a frictionless, adiabatic, perfect gas inside a two-dimensional hyperbolic nozzle by H. W Emmons( Book )

1 edition published in 1946 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two-dimensional flow of a frictionless, adiabatic, perfect gas inside of a two-dimensional hyperbolic nozzle has been studied by numerical methods described in NACA Technical Note No. 932. A series of solutions are presented which show an almost continuous transformation of known subsonic solutions to the known subsonic-supersonic solution. The words "almost continuous" are used because difficulties at the point where the shock waves touch the wall seem to prohibit continuous transformation from one type of solution to the next
Transport properties of helium from 200 to 50,000 [degree] K [by] Wilbert J. Lick and Howard W. Emmons by Wilbert J Lick( Book )

Experiments with a rotating-cylinder viscometer at high shear rates by J. A Cole( Book )

2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The torque measurements are of low accuracy and fail to establish the moderately non-Newtonian behavior of the polymer-coating oil, but the temperature measurements, which are in good agreement with a thermal analysis, do indicate the presence of temporary viscosity decrease at high shear rates for this oil
