A general vector dlfferentral equation for the vor-
ticity component parallel to a streamline Is derived
for steady, -nonvascous and Incompressible flow In a
rotating system. This equallon Is then simplified by
restricting It to rotating radial channels and by
making further simphflyng assumptions. This sim-
phfied equation Is used to solve for the secondary
vorticity, the vortlraty component parallel to the
streamline, in three special cases involving different
streamtube geometries; the results are presented In
a series of figures. The secondary vorticity Is
shown to decrease with decreased absolute angular
velocity of the flurd, decreased inlet total-pressure

Experimental measurements of the aerodynamic re-
actions on a symmetrical airfoil oscilIlating ha rmon -
ically in a two-dimensional flow are presented nid
analyzed. Harmonie motions Include pure patch and
pure translation, for several amplitudes and super-
imposed on an initial angle of attack, as well as
combined patch and translation. Considerable con-
slstent data for pure pitch were obtained froml a
search of available reference material, and several
definite Reynolds number effects are evident.

RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF VARIOUS SOURCES

The purpose of this investigation was to study and to
determine experimentally the relative importance of
various sources of defect-producmng hydrogen Intro-
duced into steel during the application of vitreous-
type ceramic coatings. Under the conditions inveslt-
gated, the principal source of defect-producing
hydrogen was the dissolved water present in the
enamel frit of the coating. Acid pickling, milling
water, chemically combined water in the elay, and
quenching water were all minor sources. Test re-
sults indicate that fashscallng, reboil, and possibly
primary boat may be eliminated by using a coaling
prepared with a water-free frlt.

obstacles such as liquad-wvater-content measurement

percent in the case of larger obstacles such as

An investigation was conducted in the Ames and
Lewlis supersonic tunnels to determine transition
Reynolds numbers on a 100 cone at zero angle of
attack. Measurements of surface temperature at
knon increments along the cone were made for the
case of negligible heat transfer and negllgib~le wind-
tunnel pressure gradients. The trends of transition
Reynolds nuber with stream Reynolds number and
wiith Mach number are not consistent for the various
tunnls. The inconsistencies are attributed to
effects of free-stream turbulence, flow irregulari-
ties introduced by the rcompressor systems, and
other air-streami disturbances.

Measurements of the characteristics of conical
diffusers of area ratio 4 between entry and exit and
of total cone angle 4o, 50, 60, go, and 100 were
made to determine the effect of Reynolds number on
efficiency for uniform entry flowr. A rarpe of entry
Reynolds number between 5 x 104 and 10D was
covered. The pressure distributions along the walls
and the veloclty distributions at the end of the conical
sections were measured. Further measurements of
velocity distribution were made with conical diffusers
of area ratio 16 between entry and exit and with pipe
flow at the entry, to determine the velocity distri-
butions which finally develop.

Rendel and J. Rudman. M~ay 1953. 27p. diagrs.,
photo., tab. (RAE Tech. Note Me~ch. Eng. 144)

A mathematical analysis has been made of the simple
type of irreversible machine without lost motion in
which the internal frictional forces can be expressed
in terms of the external loading. TIhe analysis
emphasises that the most efficient type of machine
would be one in which, when operating against an
opposing load, the input force gradually releases a
brake which holds the output load. A Imodel machine
of this type, which can theoretically be made over
50-percent efficient, has been tested and found to be
usable and irreversible up to an efficiency of 80 per-
cent. A description of this machine and the tests

ESTIMATION OF THE FAIGUE LIFE OF A
TRANSPORT AIRCRAFTr. P. B.Walker. July
1953. 9p. (RAE Structures 149)

A simple formula is presented for the safe life of an
aircraft under reasonably good operating conditions
from the standpoint of wing fatigue~. Gusts are
treated as the main factor in determination of fatigue
life, though other factors are allowed for as being
secondary. Before the formula can be used a
simple fallgue test is required on critical compo-
nents, and repeated several times to establish vari-
ation of nominal identical specimens. The loading
cycle for this test corresponds to a sequence of up
and do~wngusts of 8 ft/see equivalent velocity. The
life obtained is termed the "Standard ~Life" and
corresponds to normal operating conditions on
European Air Lines. Reservations in the use of the
formula and correction for other operating conditions
are discussed in general terms.

LEAKAGE. TESTxS ON SOLID AND INF5LAT AB LE
RUBBER SEALS DESIGNED FOR USE IN WIND
TUNNELS. D. I. T. P. Llewelyn-Davies and M. T.
Caiger. January 1953. 24p. diagrs., tab. (RAE
Tech. Note Aero 2219)

Tests have been made on two types of rubber seals
designed for use in a variable pressure wind tunnel.
A solid seal was designed which would satisfactorily
seal gaps of up to 0.04 inch against pressure differ-
ences of C1 atmosphere from atmospheric pressure
and which required a minimum sealing force of
5 lb Inch run of seal. It is essential to keep to a
minimum the number of joints in the seal and also
it is important that the! seal should be a loose fit in
its groove. A minimum inflation pressure of
30 Il/sq in. gage was required to ensure satis-
factory sealing when an inflatable seal was used to
seal gaps of up to 0.128 inch against the same range
of pressure! differences. When sealing against
pressures higher than atmospheric, the performance
deteriorated rapidly due to the decrease of the
effective seal pressure. Care was necessary to en-
sure that, the seal d'id not roll out of its groove when
the joint surfaces were slid apart.

The compressible lamana~r boundary layer over a flat
surface with heat transfer at the surface, a unit
Prandtl number, and a linear temperature viscosity
relation, Is considered. The one-parameter Karman
.Pohlhausen integral method is apphied with a sixth-
degree polynomial assumed for the velocity profile.
The method is shown to predict accurately the veloc-
Ity proflde slopes and curvatures. It is also shown to
gav~e good stability estimates as compared with
mathematically exact solutions. The procedure for
estimating the minimum critical Reynolds number
for instability is modified to extend Its applicability
somewhat for extreme amounts of heat transfer and
lugh Mach numbers.
