The city in African-American literature ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 950 libraries worldwide
While one of the central drives in classic American letters has been a reflexive desire to move away from the complexity and supposed corruption of cities toward such idealized nonurban settings as Cooper's prairies, Thoreau's woods, Melville's seas, Whitman's open road, and Twain's river, nearly the opposite has been true in African-American letters. Indeed the main tradition of African-American literature has been, for the most part, strikingly positive in its vision of the city. Although never hesitant to criticize the negative aspects of city life, classic African-American writers have only rarely suggested that pastoral alternatives exist for African-Americans and have therefore celebrated in a great variety of ways the possibilities of urban living. For Frederick Douglass, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Ralph Ellison, the city, despite its many problems, has been a place of deliverance and renewal.

Determining the Aerothermodynamic Environment of a Generic Missile ( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
There are a variety of computer codes of varying degrees of rigor which can be used by the designers of high-speed missile systems in order to define the aerothermodynamic environment at flight conditions. It is assumed that the flow models and the numerical algorithms used in these codes have been validated by their developers. However, the users of such codes must exercise them against a quality data base, gaining knowledge of the intricacies in the use of such codes and calibrating the range of conditions over which the code can be used to predict specific parameters that are important to the design objectives without necessarily verifying that all the features of the flow are correctly modeled. Data which can be used to define the aerothermodynamic environment of a generic missile have been obtained in the Tri-Sonic Wind Tunnel (TWT) of the Aeronautical Research Center (ARC) at the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA). Forces and moments, surface pressures, surface temperatures, and flow visualization photographs have been obtained at a Mach number of 4.28 over a range of Reynolds numbers (based on the free-stream conditions and model length) from 1x10(exp 7) to 1.5x10(exp 7). The experimentally-determined parameters are compared in the present paper with parameters computed using the Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations in the GASP v3 code and with the aerodynamic coefficients computed using the ATAP code.
The Effects of the Thermal Boundary Condition and Turbulence on Heat Transfer from a Cylinder, Flat Plate, and Turbine Blade Using the Transient Shroud and Heated-Coating Techniques ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A new technique to measure local heat transfer is developed, it and other methods are used to study the effects of the thermal boundary condition on local heat transfer and turbulence level effects on turbine blade heat transfer. The new technique is called the shroud technique and is a variation on the transient method. It is designed for use on arbitrarily shaped models in a wind tunnel. The shroud acts as a protective covering during in-situ heating of the model. A transient is produced by sudden removal of the shroud. Measurements on a cylinder in cross-flow are used as one method for validation of this technique. These measurements showed that the shroud technique produced good results except in the wake region where the duration of the flow development sometimes created problems. The shroud technique and a gold-film heated-coating method are both used for measurements on a flat plate with a laminar boundary layer to investigate the effect of thermal boundary conditions. The results are compared to numerical solutions, done as part of this study, for uniform temperature, uniform heat flux, and transient thermal boundary conditions. The experimental results agreed well with theory with the uniform heat flux producing 36% higher heat transfer rates than those for uniform temperature. The transient results were highly dependent on the non-dimensional temperature used, producing heat transfer rates as low as the uniform temperature or higher than the uniform heat flux boundary conditions.
An Experimental Investigation of Heat Transfer, Transition and Separation on Turbine Blades at Low Reynolds Number and High Turbulence Intensity ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The effects of turbulence intensity on the heat transfer distribution, transition and flow separation on a turbine blade was investigated at low Reynolds numbers. Measurements were performed in linear cascades (at both UCDavis and the USAF Academy) at low Reynolds number (67,000 to 144,000) representative of low pressure turbine stages at high altitude. Nominal turbulence intensities of 1% and 10% (generated with biplane lattice grids) were used. The heat transfer was measured with the uniform heat flux (UHF) or heated-coating method. The heated-coating was a gold-film and liquid crystals were used for the surface temperature measurement. A novel laser-tuft surface flow visualization method was also used. For low turbulence levels (1%) the pressure side of the blade exhibited streaks of varying heat transfer possibly associated with Taylor-Gortler vortices. With grid turbulence (10%) these streaks disappeared on the pressure side and the heat transfer nearly doubled. Gird turbulence also increased the heat transfer on the leading edge and suction surface, while advancing the location of boundary layer transition. Good agreement was generally found between the UCDavis and USAFA data. These cascade results compare favorably to those that have been reported with rotation.
