This report describes applied research directed toward utilizing high-temperature thermoelectric generators for spaceflight vehicle power supplies. Further investigations of the effect of dislocation scattering of phonons because of localized strain in the matrix of thermoelectric materials indicate that the dispersed particles should be as small as 0.02A. Metallographic examinations of segmented TE legs, exposed to 4000 hrs operation at hot junction of 1200 C showed that the junction between some of the n-type MCC 60 and MCC 40 segments had been overheated. Improved high-temperature measurements of the thermal diffusivity of MCC60 indicated that its thermal conductivity was substantially higher than had been previously determined. Specific heat measurements at temperatures ranging from ambient to 1200 C were completed on each MCC thermoelectric material. Disc-shaped TE elements with arc-plasma sprayed coatings to 1/4 inch thickness were successfully produced, and several conceptual generator designs for use with isotope heat sources were reported.

Radiation polymerization of acetylene derivatives( )

2 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on the radiation-induced polymerization of acetylene derivatives to produce polyene polymers with useful properties was concerned with synthesis of acetylene derivatives, thermal, chemical and radiation-induced polymerizations and copolymerizations of selected acetylene derivatives, and characterization and evaluation of the prepared polymers. Diethynylbenzenes were prepared and used as crosslinking agents in these polymerizations to insure solid products. Radiation yields with G values (number of monomer molecules polymerized per 100 ev of absorbed radiation) greater than 100 were observed in the copolymerizations of p-diethynylbenzene/propiolic acid (296) and p- diethynylbenzene/dimethylethynyl boronate (136) systems. Radiation yields for the polymerization and copolymerization of all other acetylene derivatives except propiolic acid were small and G values were less than 30. In general, the systems examined were thermally sensitive which necessitated low temperature radiolyses to determine radiation yields. Two polymeric systems, p-polyphenyl and polyferrocene, which should have long conjugated paths were prepared chemically and included in this study

Thermogravimetric analyses were made on Resinox SC-1008 silicone modified phenolic resin and 75% glass laminate and compared with similar samples of Epon 828 epoxy resin. The effects of atmosphere, sample geometry, inclusion of sized glass fabric, and instrument variables on the degradation kinetics of these materials were investigated. Kinetic constants were calculated for the materials from thermogravimetric analysis results and an empirical method of kinetic calculations is discussed. The thermal endurance limit of Resinox glass laminate was also calculated. Differential thermal analyses were carried out on Resinox and Epon laminates and theoretical kinetic relationships were used to facilitate their interpretation

Investigation of Perforated Plastic Spheres Concept for Fuel Tank Fire Suppression( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was conducted to establish the feasibility of using perforated hollow plastic spheres to pack aircraft fuel tanks to provide fire and explosion suppression capability. The program involved establishing several sphere configurations, producing test quantities, determining performance under electrical spark and incendiary gunfire conditions, and evaluating fuel system compatibility. These sphere configurations varying in diameter from 3/4 to 1 inch with perforations of 0.060 to 0.100 mils were evaluated. All configurations provided some explosion suppression, but the goal of 3 psi maximum peak pressure rise required for fuel tank applications was not achieved. Fuel system compatibility was slightly inferior to that experienced with polyurethane foam

Evaluation of elastomers as o-ring seals for liquid rocket fuel and oxidizer systems( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

O-ring seals of selected elastomeric and compliant materials were evaluated for resistance to liquid rocket fuels in a simulated end-use test. The candidate elastomers were placed under compression in closed cells and exposed to the liquid and vapor of liquid rocket fuels and oxidizers for extended periods of time. Rate of fuel loss through the seal, and the change in physical properties of the seal materials were determined. Nitrogen tetroxide, mixed hydrazines, chlorine triflouride, 90% hydrogen peroxide, Hybaline A-5, and pentaborane were tested in direct contact with the Oring seals at 73F. Metal clad and polyethylene encapsulated elastometric O-rings were also tested for resistance to nitrogen tetroxide at 73F. The effect of temperature on elastomer endurance was determined by exposing the O-rings to nitrogen tetroxide, mixed hydrazines, and hydrogen peroxide at 160F. The effect of direct immersion in liquid rocket fueld on the physical properties of the seal materials was investigated by immersing promising O-ring candidates in nitrogen tetroxide, hydrogen peroxide, and mixed hydrazine
Elastomer compatibility with mil-l-007808f(usaf) lubricating oils by James R Gibson( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Program objectives were to develop compatibility data relating to test temperatures, procedures, elastomers, and test fluids to aid the Air Force in the selection of standard evaluation conditions. These standard conditions are to be used in MIL-L-7808 and various elastomer seal specifications. Thirteen elastomer formulations and five lubricants (MIL-L-7808) were investigated. Immersion temperatures and times were varied according to elastomer composition (Viton, Fluorosilicone, Buna N) and the effect obtained. Change in hardness, elongation, tensile strength, and volume were determined. The maximum temperatures recommended for future tests are: Viton, 347 F; Fluorosilicone, 302 F; and Buna N, 257 F. Specimens exposed for 72 and 168 hr generally gave results that were approximately of the same order of magnitude. Difficulty was encountered in obtaining valid hardness values for O-ring specimens thus indicating the desirability for an improved test procedure. Current specifications are ambiguous (in their definition of test temperature measurement) and these should be clarified in future test methods in specifications. (Author)

To elucidate the firing instability encountered by the Air Force with some aged polyurethane rockets, which results in loss of chunks of propellant, an analytical investigation of thermal characteristics and stability was conducted on model compounds prepared from typical propellant raw materials, and on model propellant binder samples formulated with ammonium perchlorate to duplicate the chemical effects of the oxidizer. Formulation variables, catalysts and atmosphere all were found to affect thermal characteristics somewhat, but caused no catastrophic changes. A thermal popcorn effect was encountered at 300- 350C with samples containing large excesses of isocyanate and which had been exposed to atmospheric moisture. This effect can be accounted for by volatilizations and dissociations which occur below urethane dissociation temperatures. The mathematics of steady-state propellant burning and pop-corning are discussed. Analytical correlations for infrared assignments, proton resonance (NMR) assignments, and thermogravimetric analyses were developed for application to polyurethanes. (Author)
Infrared spectra of selected unsaturated aliphatic acids and acid derivatives( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A series of unsaturated carbonyl compounds including acids, salts, acid halides and esters have been studied by means of infrared and Raman spectroscopy with the major emphasis on the 700-250 cm to the -1 power infrared region. A number of useful correlation bands have been found for the unsaturated acids and esters. Proposed assignments are presented for acrylic acid, sodium acrylate, methyl acrylate and vinyl acetate. Other spectral features such as hydrogen bonding, resonance, and rotational isomerization are discussed for these molecules
Studies in double focusing mass spectrometry( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Several analytical approaches to metals analysis with the vacuum spark mass spectrograph are considered. Analyses are given for standard, low alloy steels. A study conducted on fragmentation by the sparking of polymers in the vacuum spark is presented. Mass spectra of polymers obtained in the vacuum spark are compared to gas source spectra of the polymer pyrolysis products and to spectra of the monomer. Though only preliminary information was obtained, it appears that the existence of stable groups such as the benzene ring of styrene, influences the spectrum to a greater extent than the ability of the polymers to unzip. Accurate mass measurement, using a special photo-plate reader designed for the Air Force Materials Laboratory, has been investigated and is discussed. The variation of a proportionality constant in the expression relating mass to line position is shown to be relatively large as one progresses along the plate. Thus the need for reference lines very close to the line to be determined is affirmed. (Author)

Ignition induction times of hydrogen-air mixtures were measured after the reflected wave in a single-pulse shock tube as a function of mixture ratio, absolute pressure and temperature. The data have been correlated by a nonlinear regression program resulting in an equation for induction time as a function of these variables. The results support earlier work at this laboratory on argon- diluted hydrogen-oxygen experiments in that at temperatures below 1100 K the ignition delays became very long because of self-inhibition of the reaction through HO2 formation. The effects of added water vapor and nitric oxide on the ignition characteristics of hydrogen-air mixtures were studied. Both additives resulted in sensitization of the ignition reaction. A detailed investigation of the nitric oxide catalysis indicated that the maximum effect occurred at 0.5 mole percent of additive, where the ignition delay was decreased by a factor of 100 and the ignition temperature by 200 K. Nitrogen dioxide was found to be equally effective, but ammonia exhibited no sensitizing action. The ignition induction times of 0.5 and 1.0 equivalence ratio mixtures of methane-, butane-, and octane-air mixtures were determined from 0.2 to 10 milliseconds at a reflected shock pressure of 60 psia. The data are presented both in tabular and graphical form. All ignition delay data are discussed in light of related studies and potential kinetic mechanisms. Recommendations for future work are presented
