Abstract:The proposed work focuses on implementing fast-response pressure-sensitive paint for measurements of unsteady pressure in rotorcraft applications. Significant rotorcraft problems such as dynamic stall, rotor blade loads in forward flight, and blade-vortex interaction all have significant unsteady… more
Abstract:Supersonic propulsion systems include internal ducts, and therefore, the flow often includes shock waves, shear layers, vortices, and separated flows. Passive flow control devices such as micro-vortex generators and micro-ramps have been proposed to improve vehicle performance. The ability to… more
Abstract:Currently, the contribution of skin friction to the total drag of a wind tunnel model is estimated by comparing measurements of the total drag to the integrated pressure drag. While this yields an estimate for the average skin friction, the distribution of the skin friction cannot be determined from… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Among the technical challenges associated with current Air Force scramjet technology development is coupling between the combustor and isolator that leads to isolator unstart. Performance is currently restricted because the engine is not actively controlled. While simple passive… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Military aircraft tires must handle extreme loads during landing, take-off and taxi. New designs must be evaluated to determine if they meet mission capability requirements. A key evaluation area is the distribution of normal and shear forces in the tire contact patch. These data are… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Based on the success of the Phase-I effort, the objective of the proposed Phase-II research effort will be to develop and deliver a system of fiber-coupled, high-speed UV-LIF- and PLIF-based sensor.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
