Pioneer odyssey by Richard O Fimmel( Book )

9 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of Pioneer 11 in repeating an encounter with the giant planet Jupiter and producing unique images of the north polar regions of the planet necessitated an updating of [the previous edition] SP-349. Additional material has been added to the descriptive material about the flight of the spacecraft in Chapter 5. The following chapter, describing the results of the two missions, has been completely updated in the light of further interpretations of the Pioneer 10 data coupled with the new data from Pioneer 11. And additional Chapter 9 has been added to provide a selection of the better images obtained by Pioneer 11. This chapter also includes images of the four Galilean satellites

Exobiology in earth orbit : the results of science workshops held at NASA Ames Research Center by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume gives a status report on the scientific investigations which can be undertaken in the field of exobiology using instruments in Earth orbit. A brief list of these recommended experiments is given here. Those listed for the Observational Exobiology section are in order of decreasing priority as determined by a consensus of the Workshop members. Otherwise, no priorities are implied by the order in which the experiments are listed. Observational Exobiology: 1. Search for extrasolar planetary systems, 2. Study star-forming regions in the galaxy--analogs for the solar nebula, 3. Study comets, asteroids, Titan, and the giant planets in our own solar system, 4. Study the organic chemistry of interstellar molecular clouds. Cosmic Dust Collection: 1. Develop and implement capture techniques which preserve biogenic material, 2. Develop and implement techniques to determine the orbits of dust particles, 3. Refine laboratory methods for the analysis of small particles. In Situ Experiments: 1. Study the formation, condensation, aggregation, and surface chemistry of suspended dust grains, 2. Create, release, and monitor an artificial comet in space, 3. Determine the viability of microorganisms in space

U.S. civil rotorcraft accidents, 1963 through 1997 by Franklin D Harris( )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrative summary data produced by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has been obtained and analyzed for all 8,436 U.S. civil registered rotorcraft accidents which occurred from mid-1963 through 1997. This analysis was based on the NTSB's assignment of each mishap into one of 21 first event' categories. The number of U.S. civil registered rotorcraft as recorded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the same period has also been obtained. Taken together, these data indicate the civil rotorcraft accident rate (on a per 1,000 registered rotorcraft basis) has decreased by almost a factor of 10 (i.e., from 130 accidents per 1,000 rotorcraft in 1964 to 13.4 per 1,000 in 1997). Analysis of the mishap data indicates over 70% of the rotorcraft accidents were associated with one of the following four NTSB 'first event' categories: 2408 Loss of engine power (28.5%); 1,322 In-flight collisions with objects (15.7%); 1,114 Loss of control (13.2%); 1,083 Airframe/component/system failure or malfunction (12.8%)

Airfoil dynamic stall and rotorcraft maneuverability by William G Bousman( )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The loading of an airfoil during dynamic stall is examined in terms of the augmented lift and the associated penalties in pitching moment and drag. It is shown that once stall occurs and a leading-edge vortex is shed from the airfoil there is a unique relationship between the augmented lift, the negative pitching moment, and the increase in drag. This relationship, referred to here as the dynamic stall function, shows limited sensitivity to effects such as the airfoil section profile and Mach number, and appears to be independent of such parameters as Reynolds number, reduced frequency, and blade sweep. For single-element airfoils there is little that can be done to improve rotorcraft maneuverability except to provide good static clmax characteristics and the chord or blade number that is required to provide the necessary rotor thrust. However, multi-element airfoils or airfoils with variable geometry features can provide augmented lift in some cases that exceeds that available from a single-element airfoil. The dynamic stall function is shown to be a useful tool for the evaluation of both measured and calculated dynamic stall characteristics of singleelement, multi-element, and variable geometry airfoils
