Doppler acoustic vortex sensing system by Richard P McConville( Book )

2 editions published between 1973 and 1978 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the final report on the Doppler Acoustic Vortex Sensing System, (DAVSS) program carried out by Avco Corporation's Systems Division for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Transportation Systems Center. The objective of the program was the design of an engineered DAVSS capable of real- time detection, tracking, recording, and graphic display of aircraft trailing vortices. Problems related to such vortices are currently under intensive study by the U.S. Department of Transportation for the Federal Aviation Administration. This report presents hardware and software design aspects of the system. The design of the acoustic antennas and transducers is described. System control, computer hardware and software, and system/subsystem interfaces are discussed

Design and construction of continuously reinforced concrete airport pavements : final report by United States( Book )

4 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides design procedures for continuously reinforced concrete (CRC) airport pavements. The basic physical-mathematical model and applicable analyses are discussed. Thickness design procedures for both new CRC pavements and CRC overlays are presented for both civil and military aircraft. Methods for designing steel reinforcement, construction joints, and terminal treatment systems are included. All of these procedures are recommended for immediate use. (Author)
Recycling of asphalt concrete airfield pavement : a laboratory study by R. B Brownie( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory experiments have been conducted on aged asphalt concrete (AC) pavement samples obtained from three Naval airfields and two civil airports to develop and establish criteria and design guidelines for recycling such pavements. In these experiments, tests were conducted on nine agents for softening residual asphalt cements and designed hot- and cold-mix samples. It was found that aged AC pavement materials can be recycled to meet FAA and Navy specifications for new pavement surfaces and base courses by hot-mix recycling procedures and new base courses by cold-mix recycling procedures. Based on the results of this investigation, criteria and design guidelines for recycling aged AC pavements by hot-mix and cold-mix procedures have been established. (Author)
Improved resistance to engine bird ingestion by Herbert B Kaehler( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analytical design method capable of quantitatively evaluating and ranking rotor blades for resistance to bird impact damage was investigated. This method was used to design blades having sufficient tolerance to meet the bird-ingestion requirements of FAR 33.77 for turbofan engines in the 6800 to 1600 lbf thrust class. The design procedure was also used for the preliminary design of a damage resistance boron/aluminum composite fan blade for the 6800 lbf thrust class engine. In addition, two protective devices designed to prevent an ingested bird from striking sensitive engine parts were presented. (Author)
Application of Doppler weather radar to turbulence measurements which affect aircraft by J. T Lee( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of thunderstorm turbulence hazardous to aircraft operation and coordinated Doppler radar observations indicate a high potential for Doppler radar utilization particularly the mean velocity spectrum breadth observations in defining severe turbulence areas. The mean Velocity Processor (MVP, the first real-time display of Doppler radar data) and the Multi-moment Ling Display (MMD), both developed at NSSL, are utilized with the radars to study vortex motion, turbulence, and wind shear areas. In addition, the Plan Shear Indicator (PSI) developed by the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratory (AFCRL) was also employed. A number of severe convective storms were penetrated by an instrumented aircraft directed into areas which analysis inferred to be turbulent. Aircraft recorded turbulence and concurrent Doppler data are compared. Utilization of the spectrum breadth calculated from the mean velocity data as a turbulence signature is discussed. Vortex motion signature is also defined. (Author)

Commercial airport operations and community noise criteria by J. E Mabry( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study program involved response of 48 persons to seven different simulated commercial airport noise environments. Each exposure period was of 1-1/2 hours duration and subjects experienced and rated eight of these 1-1/2 hour noise exposure periods. The test environments simulated a conventional living room environment. Number of aircraft noise intrusions per exposure period ranged from 6 to 18 flyovers and indoor Leq(dBA) levels ranged from 38.9 to 52.1 dB. Some of the conclusions are: Noise exposure from a 'new' aircraft fleet mix (circa 1980) is clearly more acceptable than that from an 'old' fleet mix (circa 1965). Commonly used noise exposure methods such as NEF, Leq, and mean peak dBA are level dependent. Depending on the noise exposure method used, 2.5 to 4.0 dB is perceived as a reliable change in noise exposure. Predictive capability of a noise exposure method is a function of the engineering calculation procedure employed to weight the acoustic energy. Mean peak level exposure methods have greater predictive capability than energy summation methods. Leq(dBA) is a relatively poor predictor. (Author)
Assessment of the capacity of the automated radar terminal systems (ARTS IIIA) for the years 1980-1990 by William Pailen( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The capability of the ARTS IIIA to support future air traffic growth and functional enhancements through 1990 is examined. The approach used is to investigate a few high traffic density sites which are representative of the three current terminal system configurations: single sensor sites (Detroit); dual sensor sites (Chicago, Los Angeles); and Metroplexes (New York). Loading factors are determined for each model site. These factors include the number and type of sensors and displays, the instantaneous traffic counts, and functional capability. The loading parameters are then used as inputs to a processing model, developed in this study, in order to determine if the ARTS IIIA can provide adequate processing capacity. The loading parameters are also used to develop estimates of memory requirements. The results of the study indicate that processing capacity limitations, if not overcome, will likely constrain functional growth at Metroplex facilities but will present no problems for single and dual sensor sites. Current memory capacity limitations are shown to present significant problems for both Metroplexes and dual sensors sites

Turbine engine particulate emission characterization by D. L Fenton( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A particulate sampling system has been designed and fabricated for the collection of exhaust particles emitted by aircraft turbine engines. The samples obtained by the sampling system were suitable for the determination of total mass emission rate and characterization of the exhaust particles. Two separate samples were necessary - a bulk sample for mass emission rate and a light deposit of particles for individual characterization. Operational adjustments and performance evaluations were made utilizing a TF-30 MIXED-FLOW TURBOJET ENGINE. The reliability of the data was established through repeated tests and the collaboration among the different techniques used to characterize the particles. (Author)
