  • Convenertranstel_011509130952.pdf

    One of the Orange Aid Preprint Series in Nuclear Astrophysics, September 1968.; Supported in part by the National Science Foundation [GP-7976], the Office of Naval Research [Nonr-220(47)]. ; ABSTRACT: The motion in a convectively unstable region is expanded into an ensemble of convective cells. Each of these cells interacts with the surrounding medium according to the semiempirical model proposed by Turner (1963 ). Possible detailed models of the flow patterns within each cell are presented. The radius and velocity of these cells are given as functions of distance moved. The convective flux and rms velocity are given as averages over the ensemble of cells. As in the standard mixing length theory the principle uncertainty remains the average initial radius of the cells.

  • Useoftankmounboospump_031607093838.pdf

    This paper outlines the results of a test program which was planned to demonstrate the feasibility of using a tank mounted, all-inducer, high speed liquid hydrogen booster pump to provide NPSH for the turbo pump in a reactor-powered vehicle. The cavitation problem associated with pumpoing liquid hydrogen, when used as a propellant, is further aggravated by localized heating caused by radiation from the reactor.
  • usessaturn_071607093947.pdf

    Saturn and Apollo hardware will not have realized their ultimate potential for space exploration after the project lunar landing is complete. To accomplish the Apollo lunar landing program, an immense backlog of technology, facilities, and booster capability will have been built up, and we believe proper utilization of this resource will fill the needs for planetary, lunar and earth orbital space exploration for years to come.

  • xraytelinsofaerwel_060707140201.pdf

    A sensitive new television X-ray image enlargement system has been developed under sponsorship of Watertown Arsenal Laboratories (Army Materials Research Agency) by the Department of Welding Engineering of The Ohio State University. Now commercially-available through Philips Electronics Instruments (Norelco), complete systems have been in service since January 1963 in aerospace, electronic, and other facilities. Such users report highly- satisfactory performance and unusual reliability in service. The new X-ray system permits in-motion or stationary examination of critical aerospace materials, components, and systems such as sheet materials, weldments, brazed joints, electronic components, printed circuit assemblies, small mechanisms, and biological specimens.
  • zerostage_082707085507.pdf

    To meet the demands of increasing payload size and weight, and to fill the large payload gap between the Saturn IB and Saturn V, a number of methods of uprating the Saturn IB have been studied by NASA and Chrysler Corp. of providing increased payload capability is discussed in this paper. Four 120 in. United Technology Center UA-1205 solid propellant motors, originally developed for the Air Force Titan III program, are clustered around the S-IB first stage of the Saturn IB launch vehicle. These four solid propellant motors provide the total thrust for liftoff of the vehicle, with S-IB stage ignition occurring just prior to burn-out and separation of the solid propellant motors. The term "Zero Stage" is applied to this added stage.

  • Theoliqupropperf1.pdf

    Archive copy is a photocopy.; The purpose of these writings is to compile in one volume the basic elements of thermodynamics and gas dynamics which are useful in the evaluation of thrust chamber performance. It is presumed that the reader will have had an elementary course in thermodynamics and gas dynamics. The discussion of topics useful in evaluating thrust chamber performance is, of necessity, limited to these physical effects amenable to other areas that are as yet in the research stage of development. The author would like to take this opportunity to express his gratitude to Mr. G. S. Gill for many stimulating discussions on this subject. Thanks are due to Mr. D. J. Kuyper for permission to utilize his discussion on elastic-plastic strain and its application to nozzle throat area change. Finally, the author wishes to express his gratitude to his wife, Alice, who typed the bulk of the manuscript.

  • theprooflartanforcryfue_071207131317.pdf

    Archive copy is a poor photocopy. Prepared for presentation at Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Raketentechnik und Raumfahrt. (German Society for Rocket Technology and Astronautics). Given by E. Harpoothian, Chief Engineer, Structures Department, Development Engineering.; Tanks for cryogenic fluids, as used in the Saturn space vehicles, have reached an advanced stage of design and development. Many of the structural features of the NASA/Douglas Saturn tanks, fabricated of 2014-T6 aluminum alloy, were first developed for the booster of the Thor ballistic missile, which later found extensive use in putting space vehicles into orbit. There is a mutual dependence of important factors related to design concepts, selection of materials, processing techniques, and fabrication methods. It is shown that this mutual dependence must be considered if a successful vehicle is to emerge from design and development. Details of vehicle structure, provision for insulation, and manufacturing methods are presented. Criteria for the selection of materials is shown to be dependent on strength, ductility, weldability, toughness, fabricability, behavior at cryogenic temperatures, and on manufacturing methods and inspection techniques.

  • theuseofwindsheainthedesiofaerovehi_103107103412.pdf

    Prepared for presentation at the 23rd Meeting of the Structures and Materials Panel, AGARD, October 4-11,1966, ONERA, Paris, France.; ABSTRACT: The relative influence of various wind profile properties and disturbances on launch vehicle flight dynamic response is studied. Particular emphasis is placed on the influence of wind shears and turbulence on dynamic response during the boost phase of the flight. Four hundred and seven individual detailed (Jimsphere) wind profiles are the primary wind inputs for this analysis. Time response of the vehicle to each profile is computed and a statistical evaluation of the results made. Results are obtained for the Saturn V space vehicle and conclusions drawn as to the relative influence of wind shears and turbulence vs the degree of refinement of the dynamic model of the space vehicle.
