Rate of heat transfer from finned metal surfaces by Charles Fayette Taylor( )

6 editions published in 1930 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The object of this series of investigations is to evaluate the factors which control the rate of heat transfer to a moving current of air from finned metal surfaces similar to those used on aircraft engine cylinders. As a result of this work, it is hoped to establish data which will enable the finning of cooling surfaces to be designed to suit the particular needs of any specific application
A Suggested method for measuring turbulence by Charles Fayette Taylor( )

5 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The desirability of a quantitative measure of turbulence is emphasized, and a possible method of attack on the problem is discussed. Data are presented to show that the hot-wire aneomometer has possibilities as an instrument for measuring turbulence. An apparatus consisting essentially of two hot wires, one parallel to the air flow and one at right angles to it, is suggested. Further study of the possibilities of such an apparatus is recommended

Investigation of a nonlinear control system by Irmgard Flügge-Lotz( Book )

8 editions published between 1957 and 1958 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonlinear elements are sometimes added to linear control systems in order to improve the response of the system to an arbitrary input. This can be done in different ways, one of them being the variation of the coefficients of the differential equation describing the system before the nonlinear elements are added. This variation of the coefficients may be done in a continuous or in a discontinuous way. In the present paper a discontinuous variation of the coefficients is studied in detail and investigated-for practical use

The Effect of changing the ratio of exhaust-valve flow capacity to inlet-valve flow capacity on volumetric efficiency and output of a single-cylinder engine by James V. D Eppes( Book )

6 editions published between 1946 and 1975 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of tests have been made with a single-cylinder engine in order to determine the effect on volumetric efficiency and on engine performance of changing the ratio of exhaust-valve flow capacity to inlet-valve flow capcity when operating with exhaust pressure equal to inlet pressure. It was found that, within the range of speeds used, the engine gave best performance with values of the ratio of exhaust-valve flow capacity to inlet-valve flow capacity approximately equal to unity. This value corresponds to inlet and exhaust valves of approximately equal diameter and lift. It was also found that conventional valve timing gave better performance than any of the other timing arrangements tried, except at speeds higher than those used, where it appeared from the trend of the curves that delaying the inlet-valve closing would increase volumetric efficiency and mean effective pressures
Baseline implementations of the Standard Line Editor (SLED) by Charles Fayette Taylor( )

1 edition published in 1980 in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to a recognized requirement for a more uniform man machine interface, especially in multiple machine networks, a standardized text editor was proposed (1). This editor, "SLED" was designed to be easily implementable in several commonly available higher level languages. This document reviews two baseline implementations taken directly from the SLED standards which users may want to consider when implementing SLED upon local systems. These baseline programs were written and documented with portability and understandabil ity as goals

Aircraft propulsion : a review of the evolution of aircraft piston engines, by C. Fayette Taylor by Charles Fayette Taylor( Book )

8 editions published between 1901 and 1971 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This, the fourth number of Smithsonian Annals of Flight, was the Fourth Lester B. Gardner Lecture, delivered at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, March 8, 1962, and at the Smithsonian Institution, October 5, 1962. Subsequently it was published in the General Appendix to the Annual Report ... of the Smithsonian Institution ... for the Year Ended June 30, 1962 (1963). As presented here, the text has been revised, enlarged, and updated. Its 72 illustrations, many of them new, include a number of engines, aircraft, and the materials in the collections of the National Air and Space Museum. With it, for the first time, appears the bibliography which accompanied the original manuscript and which, for lack of space, could not then (1963) be printed. This has since been edited and expanded to approximately double its original length by Dr. Richard K. Smith while he was serving on the Museum staff. Its nearly 600 entries, most of them contemporary accounts, cover the whole range of engine development and related activities from the early beginnings. This bibliography should be a useful and welcome tool, both for the airplane enthusiast and for the historian of aviation technology

The internal-combustion engine in theory and practice by Charles Fayette Taylor( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the internal-combustion engine incorporates changes and additions in engine design and control that have been brought on by the world petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the legal restraints on air pollution.The fundamentals and the topical organization, however, remain the same. The analytic rather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT. He directed the Sloan Automotive Laboratories at MIT from 1926 to 1960
The Effect of piston-head shape, cylinder-head shape, and exhaust restriction, on the performance of a piston-ported two-stroke cylinder by A. R Rogowski( Book )

2 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A full-scale, three-dimensional, steady-flow model of the two-stroke engine described in N.A.C.A. Technical Note No. 674 was constructed for the purpose of observing the scavenging-air flow obtained with the various inlet-port arrangements tested in the actual engine. Based on experience gained from correlation of the flow tests with engine tests, several piston-head shapes were developed, and the most promising were tested in the engine. Several modifications of the successful round-edge piston previously used, were also tested. Three types of cylinder head; spherical, cylindrical, and flat in cross section were tried, first in the flow model and then in the engine. The flat head was modified by milling a portion of the surface away to form steps. The cylindrical and modified flat heads were run at various angles to the plane of symmetry
Part-throttle operation and control of a piston-ported two-stroke cylinder by A. R Rogowski( Book )

2 editions published in 1943 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The single-cylinder piston-ported two-stroke engine described in Technical Note No. 674 was used to investigate means of obtaining reliable operation under idling conditions. The fuel-consumption characteristics of the engine were also studied over the useful range of speeds and loads, using several different fuels. Fuel was supplied to the engine as vapor mixed with the inlet air and also by direct injection into the cylinder
Geology, alteration mineralogy, geochemistry and volcanogenic massive-sulphide potential of the Ruttan mine area and the southern Rusty Lake volcanic belt (NTS 64B) by C. Tucker Barrie( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ruttan Mine deposit contains over 80 million tonnes of massive sulphide in the Rusty Lake volcanic belt of northern Manitoba. This report presents initial results of an assessment of the potential for discovery of new ore reserves in the area of the Ruttan Mine (scheduled for closure by May 2002)and in the southern Rusty Lake volcanic belt. The report begins with a review of the regional geology of the belt and the local geology of the Ruttan Mine and Darrol Lake areas. The potential for new ore discoveries is examined, based on the geology and on comparisons with other large, volcanic-associated massive sulphide deposits with similar characteristics. In addition, the alteration mineralogy and geochemistry of the Ruttan ore horizon & nearby rocks is evaluated to develop new exploration criteria for the region. Recommendations are also made for further research
