Study of optical techniques for the Ames unitary wind tunnels. Part 6, digital image processing [microfo Reflection type skin friction meter [microform] / inventors, Promode R. Bandyopadhyay, Leonard M. Weinstein; Further developments of the fringe-imaging skin friction technique [microform] / Gregory G. Zilliac. The objective of this paper is to compare the current state-of-the-art of the following three optical techniques under study by NASA for measuring model deformation in wind tunnels: (1) video.

Wind tunnels offer an effective tool to rapidly obtain data associated with flow over scaled or full-scale models. Given their ubiquitous nature and utility, a wind-tunnel design project is a. 92 THE TRANSONIC WIND TUNNEL AND THE NACA TECHNICAL CULTURE The Midcentury Need for Transonic Tunnels. In the special case, combat aviator Chuck Yeager flew manufacturer Lawrence Bell's new X-1 airplane faster than the speed of sound. Guide to NACA Historical Sources at Langley [] Since this book is amply footnoted by chapter, and since so little is generally known about the recently constituted archives that provided most of my source material, I have chosen to provide readers with the following general-purpose guide to the major sources for research into NACA history at NASA Langley Research Center instead of with the. NASA Technical Documents. Technical documents from NASA. MORE. The development of supersonic airfoils is described along with the development of test facilities such as transonic wind tunnels and slotted wind tunnels. Emphasis is placed on propeller blade design and configurations. in the Ames Research Center unitary wind tunnel.

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) Lee, George. Alignment procedures and conceptual designs for the rapid alignment of the Ames Unitary Wind Tunnel schlieren systems were devised. The schlieren systems can be aligned by translating the light source. discussed the limitations of existing wind tunnels and advised that a full-scale flight research program would be an appropriate precaution. By early John Stack had confirmed that data from wind tunnels operating near Mach 1 were essentially worthless because of a . NASA Historical Data Book Vol. 8. Information relating to the wind tunnels and similar facilities at the centers generally was obtained from center Web sites and personnel at the appropriate centers. No publications describe in a comprehensive fashion the changes made to the tunnels in the decade addressed in this volume. Although the.
