Powder metallurgy in aerospace research : a survey by H. W Blakeslee( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this document, one of a series dealing with specialized processes, the methodology and results of powder metallurgy are described so potential users can evaluate their worth in non-aerospace applications. This report discusses the various techniques by which powders can be produced, as pure metals or as alloys; it explains the methods by which these powders can be formed into the final parts, and further processing that may be necessary to meet the specific requirements spelled out by the user. The NASA developments are detailed, and references are provided for those who wish to obtain further information characteristic of any methodology. Compiled by experts associated with the Franklin Institute Research Laboratories, the document should be of value to manufacturing establishments, and to investigators in such areas as high strength, high temperature service, or the resistance of materials to cryogenic temperatures."--Foreword
Dynamic stability of rotor-bearing systems by Edgar J Gunter( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Determining pavement skid-resistance requirements at intersections and braking sites by Gene Farber( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The determination of skid resistance requirements for any given set of roadway and traffic conditions is reported. The study focuses on wet pavement skidding accidents at intersections and curves. The feasibility of implementing these procedures was demonstrated in the field. A simplified version of the procedures was also developed. The three steps involved in the procedure for determination of skid resistance requirements are outlined
Investigation of porous pavements for urban runoff control by Esther Thelen( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory and economic studies were undertaken to determine the feasibility of utilizing porous pavements to alleviate combined sewer overflow pollution and reduce the design parameters of storm sewer systems by allowing storm runoff to percolate back into the ground. Laboratory studies of candidate materials revealed a porous asphaltic concrete containing 5.5% asphalt by weight and aggregate graded to allow a water flow of 76 in. per hour to be the optimal porous road material. Materials testing for stability, durability, and freeze-thaw susceptibility proved this material suitable for use in road construction
NASA contributions to fluid-film lubrication : a survey by Pa.) Franklin Institute (Philadelphia( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What's new under the sun? : National Solar Heating and Cooling Information Center--a complete information source by National Solar Heating and Cooling Information Center( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effectiveness of highway arterial lighting : final report : prepared for Federal Highway Administration, Offices of Research and Development ; Federal Energy Administration, Office of Energy Conservation and Environment( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research was undertaken to evaluate the cost-benefits of arterial highway lighting treatments in terms of traffic safety and energy usage. The results have shown that total nighttime dry weather accidents are inversely related to visiblity, higher visibility resulting in fewer accidents. Areas with high population densities have a much higher rate than low density areas and CBD areas have a much higher rate than other area types. Regression equations have been developed which predict dry nighttime accident history based on population density, area type and visibility
