Recovery system design guide by E. G Ewing( Book )

3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document serves as the third revision of the USAF Parachute Handbook which was first published in 1951. The data and information represent the current state of the art relative to recovery system design and development. The initial chapters describe representative recovery applications, components, subsystems, material, manufacture and testing. The final chapters provide empirical data and analytical methods useful for predicting performance and presenting a definitive design of selected components into a reliable recovery system. (Author)
Ballistic perforation of graphite-epoxy composite by Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The response of advanced composite laminated plates under projectile impact has been studied extensively in recent years, but because of the presence of a large number of fracture modes and of the complex response of the constituent materials to the extremely high strain rate, the process has not been completely understood. Although the penetration event occurs in a matter of only several microseconds, the constitutive properties of the constituent materials of the composite under such high strain rates change drastically. The general objective of the current investigation was to evaluate the influence of the laminate characteristics and the impact velocities on the penetration response of these composites. More specific objectives include development of a methodology to characterize and analyze post-penetration fracture surfaces both in macro- and in micro-scale. Earlier work conducted by Altamirano (1991) and Mayer (Fig. 1) demonstrates an empirical relationship between the energy absorption function E and the impact velocity V as: E = CVn (1) where C is a constant depending on the laminate and projectile geometry
Matrix methods in structural mechanics. Proceedings of the Conference held at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, 26-28 October, 1965 by Conference on Matrix Methods in Structural Mechanics( Book )

13 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the conference was to discuss the recent developments in the field of matrix methods of structural analysis and design of aerospace vehicles. The conference was attended by over two hundred invited scientists and engineers from Australia, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, and United Kingdom, and the United States. The participation of representatives from overseas was a noteworthy highlight of this conference since it permitted a free interchange of ideas and information between scientists and engineers from the United States and allied countries. Therefore this conference may be truly considered to be the First International Conference on the subject of matrix methods in structural mechanics. The thirty-six papers presented were arranged into six sessions under five different themes; General Matrix Methods, Finite Element Properties, Nonlinear Effects, Dynamics, and Applications. The papers cover practically all major aspects of recent research and development work in the field of matrix methods of structural analysis and design
Flat panel aircraft video LED display technology program by D. I Kennedy( Book )

3 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic investigations were conducted into the fabrication and assembly of modular 1 in. X 1 in. LED arrays of resolution 128 lines-per-inch. The LED material used was green-emitting gallium phosphide, Various LED configurations were investigated including stitch-bonded and flip-chip, bumped contact structures. A demonstration system was built and delivered to the USAF/FDL; this consisted of a 1 in. x 1 in. array plus associated decode/drive electronics interfaced to a 128 X 128 matrix solid-state TV camera. The electronics provided for the generation of video imagery on an eight level grey scale ratio of 2. In addition, array sections were fabricated confirming the achievement of sunlight visible performance for 128 line-per-inch LED arrays. Keywords include: LED Display, Flat Panel Display, Video Display, and Matrix Display

Flight evaluation of various phugoid dynamics and 1/Th values for the landing-approach task by Charles R Chalk( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Longitudinal handling qualities in the landing approach are studied. The T-33 variable stability and variable drag airplane was used in a flight program to evaluate various short period dynamics, phugoid dynamics, drag characteristics and elevator control authority levels. The first phase of the flight program was directed mainly at longitudinal short period dynamics, drag variation with angle of attack and elevator control authority. The second phase of the flight program was directed at phugoid dynamics, short period frequency, elevator control authority and drag characteristics. Drag variations with angle of attack, airspeed and elevator deflection were considered. Pilot ratings and comments are related to the airplane characteristics tests

The unsteady flow field about a right circular cone in unsteady flight by E. A Brong( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inviscid flow field about a right circular cone in unsteady planar flight is analyzed by a perturbation technique which is an extension of Stone's treatment of the cone at small yaw. A solution is found in the form of infinite series in the time rates of change of the pitch rate and angle of attack. The linear stability derivatives as well as 'higher order' stability derivatives are presented for a wide range of cone angles and Mach numbers. The stability derivatives as obtained from this solution are compared to results obtained from second order potential theory, Newtonian impact theory, and an unsteady flow theory due to Zartarian, Hsu, and Ashley. Both the potential theory and the impact theory predict that the stability derivative (angle of attack) approaches a value which is on the order of 10 percent to 20 percent of the stability derivative (pitch rate). Numerical results obtained from the present theory are also compared to ground-test data. The agreement is found to be generally good, although the data in some instances indicate a pronounced Reynolds number effect
A study of the parameters associated with employing laser speckle correlation fringes to measure in-plane strain by Frank D Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Basic experimental parameters associated with using laser speckle correlation fringes to measure in-plane strain have been investigated. Equations and inequalities are derived which provide bounding numbers for many of the physical parameters. The feasibility of employing this technique for obtaining in-plane strain data in a microscopic region is shown. This suggests that it may be applicable for studying strain distributions in the vicinity of either a crack or an interference fit fastener."--Abstract
