  1. OPTIMIZED AERODYNAMIC DESIGN FOR ADVANCED TURBOPROP

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN RECENT YEARS, THE TURBOPROP PROPULSION SYSTEM HAS RECEIVED INCREASING INTEREST DUE TO THE SUBSTANTIAL SAVINGS THAT CAN BE ACHIEVED IN FUEL CONSUMPTION. SUBSTANTIAL RESOURCES. HAVE BEEN INVESTED IN DEVELOPING NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR AERODYNAMIC DESIGN, AEROACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE, AERODYNAMIC STRUCTURAL DESIGN, POWER GENERATION AND POWER TRANSMISSION. IN PROPELLER DESIGN, PREDICTION CODES ARE AVAILABL ...

  2. GENERATION OF AN "ARTIFICIAL" BURST IN A TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS GENERALLY AGREED THAT THE BURSTING PHENOMENON IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DYNAMIC EVENT IN A TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER. ABOUT 80% OF THE MOMENTUM TRANSFER OCCURS DURING THESE BURSTS. TO REDUCE VISCOUS DRAG, THE PHYSICS AND STRUCTURE OF THESE EVENTS MUST BE FULLY UNDERSTOOD. HOWEVER, PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO ACCOMPLISH THIS HAVE BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE FACT THAT BURSTS OCCUR RANDOMLY IN TIME AND SPACE. ...

  3. TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE, VARIABLE AREA FLOW REGULATOR FOR JOULE-THOMSON NOZZLES

    SBC: General Pneumatics Corp            Topic: N/A

    CRYOCOOLERS AND GAS LIQUEFIERS UTILIZE ISENTHALPIC EXPANSION OF COOLED GAS IN JOULE-THOMSON NOZZLES. TO EFFECTIVELY OPTIMIZE USAGE OF THE COMPRESSED GAS, A VARIABLE GAS MASS FLOW RATE IS NECESSARY. A HIGH FLOW RATE IS REQUIRED INITIALLY WITH A PROGRESSIVE REDUCTION AS THE DESIGN CONDITION IS ATTAINED AND INTERMITTENT FLOW THEREAFTER DEPENDING ON THE LOAD DEMAND. THIS PROJECT INCORPORATES INNOVATIV ...

  4. A COLOR SCHLIEREN SYSTEM FOR LARGE SCALE LOW-GRAVITY MPS FLUIDS EXPERIMENTS

    SBC: System Specialists, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NUMBER OF LOW GRAVITY MATERIALS PROCESSING EXPERIMENTS SUCH AS CRYSTAL GROWTH STUDIES REQUIRE A SPECIALIZED OPTICAL SYSTEM CAPABLE OF FLOW VISUALIZATION. SEVERAL SUCH SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN BUILT FOR USE IN SPACE AND BALLISTIC AIRCRAFT FLIGHTS, INCLUDING SCHLIEREN SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, NO COLOR SCHLIEREN SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FOR THESE APPLICATIONS. A COLOR SCHLIEREN SYSTEM PRODUCES DATA MORE AMENABL ...
