Most widely held works by Robert F Overmyer
Space shuttle a remarkable flying machine ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The space shuttle Columbia is profiled from launch to landing and activities in orbit. This was the first reusable, fixed-wing spacecraft to go into orbit
Opening new frontiers the orbital flight tests of the space transportation system ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contains the original NASA film documenting the four test flights of the space shuttle Columbia. The Orbital Flight Test Program was a series of flights designed to test the world's first reusable spacecraft. The construction and testing of space shuttle components, payload preparations, and mission activities are thoroughly planned and carefully executed
We deliver summary of shuttle flights 5, 6, 7 and 8 ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contains the original NASA film praising the space shuttles. The first four missions were test flights; the fifth was the beginning of the shuttles' operational phase. Many "firsts" reinvigorated the space program: Flight 5 had the first 4-man crew, Flight 7 had the first 5-man crew with the first female astronaut, Sally Ride; and Flight 8 carried the first black man into space. On these flights many satellites were deployed, including some contributed from Germany, Canada, and Indonesia. The astronauts also demonstrated use of the remote manipulator arm and conducted scientific experiments and photography
The mission of Apollo-Soyuz ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contains the original NASA film stressing the spirit of cooperation and friendship that helped make the joint Soviet-American mission a success. Follows the mission timeline and uses flashbacks to show the period of development and training. Comments on future joint efforts, featuring the space shuttle, and the development of Spacelab
Skin friction drag and shear stress distribution on several streamlined bodies of revolution with varied fineness ratio by Cleveland L Dunning ( Book )
2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Experimental techniques were employed to determine the coefficient of skin friction drag and the distribution of local frictional intensity for several low drag bodies of revolution with mixed laminar and turbulent flow. The data were obtained as a function of fineness ratio and Reynolds number from experiments conducted in a subsonic wind tunnel under conditions equivalent to incompressible flow. Skin friction drag coefficients were determined first by the indirect method of subtracting pressure drag from total drag. A second more direct method was the determination of local shear distributions and integration over the surface area to obtain total frictional drag. The possibility of inaccuracies introduced by assumptions and agreement between results of the two methods are discussed. (Author)
