Cooling of gas turbines by W. Byron Brown ( Book )

Heat-transfer tests of a steel cylinder barrel with aluminum fins with improved bonding between steel barrel and aluminum base by Herman H Ellerbrock ( Book )
2 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An engine cylinder barrel with aluminum fins was tested. Later two more barrels manufactured by a method to be used in the factory production of large numberes of engines were tested. The tests showed that the thermal bonds between the aluminum fins and the aluminum base and between the aluminum base and the steel for all three barrels was very good. In addition, other tests showed that the mechanical bonds between the cylinder parts would probably be satisfactory
End-zone water injection as a means of suppressing knock in a spark-ignition engine by Rinaldo J Brun ( Book )
2 editions published in 1944 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An investigation has been made of the effectiveness of water injection into the combustion end zone of a spark-ignition engine cylinder for the suppression of knock. Pressure-time recoreds obtained show that injection of water at 60° B.T.C. on the compression stroke at a water-fuel ratio of 0.3 rendered M-3 fuel as good as S-3 fuel from an antiknock consideration. The optimum crank angle for injection of water into the end zone was found to be critical. As the injection angle was increased beyond the optimum, the quantity of water required to suppress knock increased to 3.6 water-fuel ratio at 132° B.T.C. The water quantity could not be increased beyond 3.6 water-fuel ration because of injection-pump limitations; however, a further increase in the injection angle up to the earliest angle obtainable, which was 20° A.T.C. on the intake stroke, continuously increased the knock intensity. The engine operating conditions of the tests did not simulate those encountered in flight, especially with regard to the operating speed of 570 rpm. For this reason the results should only be regarded as of theoretical importance until further investigation has been made

Reproductions of reports, some declassified, of research done at Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory during World War II. The order of reports does not represent when they were chronologically issued. Reference to the original version of each report is included
Flight comparison of performance and cooling characteristics of exhaust-ejector installation with exhasut-collector-ring installation by Loren W Acker ( Book )

Jet diffuser for simulating ram conditions on a turbojet-engine static test stand by Robert H Essig ( Book )
2 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents an investigation of a jet diffuser designed to utilize kinetic energy of the jet from a turbojet engine to reduce discharge pressure at the exhaust nozzle and thereby provide simulated ram-pressure ratios across the engine. The range of engine operating conditions obtainable with the jet diffuser are shown at several ram-pressure ratios
Knock-limited performance of pure hydrocarbons blended with a base fuel in a full-scale aircraft engine cylinder. 1 - Eight paraffins, two olefins by Anthony W Jones ( Book )
1 edition published in 1944 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The object of this report was to determine the knock-limited performance of a full-scale aircraft-engine cylinder of leaded blends of 10 pure hydrocarbons and a base fuel

The effect of xylidines on the load-carrying capacity of an aircraft-engine oil - 1 by Robert A Spurr ( Book )
1 edition published in 1943 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Tests were made to determine the effect of xylidines on the load-carrying capacity of aircraft-engine oil in several test devices. As part of an investigation on the suitability of xylidines as an antiknock component in aviation gasoline, Navy 1120 lubricating oil and Navy 1120 lubricating oil to which had been added 2 percent by weight of commercial mixed xylidines were tested in a Shell four-ball machine, and in an NACA bearing-testing machine
Determination of air-consumption parameters for two radial aircraft engines by Sidney J Shames ( Book )
1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The analysis of the test data from these two engines led to the establishment of a relation of variables upon which the design of automatic metering controls can be based. The results of this analysis also substantiate the conclusions presented in a similar published report
The effect of valve clearance on knock-limited performance and engine cooling by Harvey A Cook ( Book )
1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Tests were conducted to investigate the effect of valve clearance on valve-lift diagrams, knock-limited performance, and engine cooling. Static and running valve-lift diagrams for a single front-row cylinder mounted on a CUE crankcase were compared with static valve-lift diagrams for the multi-cylinder engine. Knock-limited and cooling performance of the single-cylinder engine with several cold valve clearances was compared with the multi-cylinder engine as determined in flight. The effect of valve clearance on cylinder temperatures and fuel consumption was investigated in cooling tests at constant power and constant fuel-air ratio
Analysis and correlation of data obtained by six laboratories on fuel-vapor loss from fuel tanks during simulated flight by Charles S Stone ( Book )
1 edition published in 1944 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Data on fuel-vapor loss from fuel tanks during simulated flight obtained by six laboratories were analyzed to show the effects of individual variables such as altitude, initial fuel temperature, rate of climb, booster-pump agitation, fuel depth, fuel-surface area, types of fuel, and vent-line pressure drop on fuel-vapor loss. From this analysis, a number of conclusions were reached
An experimental investigation of rectangular exhaust-gas ejectors applicable for engine cooling by Eugene J Manganiello ( Book )
1 edition published in 1944 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
An experimental investigation of rectangular exhaust-gas ejector pumps was conducted to provide data that would serve as a guide to the design of ejector applications for aircraft engines with marginal cooling. The pumping characteristics of rectangular ejectors actuated by the exhaust of a single-cylinder aircraft engine were determined for a range of mixing-section area from 20 to 50 square inches, over-all length from 12 to 42 inches, aspect ration from 1 to 5, diffusing exit area from 20 to 81 square inches, and aspect ratio of exhaust nozzle from 1 to 42. A few tests were conducted with a multistage ejector, a divided ejector, and an ejector incorporating bends along its length
Operating stresses in aircraft-engine crankshafts and connecting rods. 1 - Slip-ring and brush combinations for dynamic-strain measurements by Francis J Dutee ( Book )
1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Tests were conducted to develop a slip-ring and brush system that will perform satisfactorily in aircraft-engine, dynamic-strain-measuring applications where resistance-wire strain gages are the means of measuring the stain and to correlate the data obtained from tests in order to provide a basis for predicting the performance of similar slip-ring and brush systems operating under conditions similar to those imposed by these tests
Calculations of the economy of an 18-cylinder radial aircraft engine with an exhaust-gas turbine geared to the crankshaft at cruising speed by Richard W Hannum ( Book )
1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Calculations based on dynamometer test-stand data obtained on an 18-cylinder radial engine were made to determine the improvment in fuel consumption that can be obtained at various altitudes by gearing and exhaust-gas turbine to the engine crankshaft in order to increase the engine shaft work
