An analysis is made of a normal-acceleration control
system as applied to a swept-wing fighter airplane.
The results show the response characteristics of the
airplane-autopilot combination. The effects that
changes in altitude and Mach number have on these
response characteristics and the effects of changes
in the parameter settings of the system are investi-
gated. A comparison is also made of the normal-
acceleration system with pitch-attitude, pitching-
velocity, and angle-of-attack systems.

EXPERIMENTAL STRESS ANALYSIS OF
STIFFENED CYLINDERS WITH CUTOUTS. SHEAR
LOAD. Floyd R. Schiechte and Richard Rosecranrs.
July 1954. 87p. diagrs., photo., 13 tabs. (NACA
TN 3192)

A cylindrical semimonocoque shell of circular cross
section was mounted as a cantilever and loaded by a
direct shear at the tip. The cylinder was tested with
no cutout, with a rectangular cutout on the tension
side, and with the cutout centered on the neutral axis
on one side of the cylinder. The cutout was succes-
sively enlarged through six sizes varying from 300 to
1300 in circumference and from I and 2 bays in
length. Strain measurements were made with
resistance-type wire strain gages near the cutout on
the stringers, the skin, and the rings for each case.
and the stresses obtained are presented in tables.

On the basis of linearized time-dependent super-
sonic flow theory, the lift and pitching-moment de-
rivatives due to constant vertical acceleration are

in general, at those speeds for which the wing leading
and trailing edges are both supersonic. The major
portion of the computational results is presented in
the form of detailed charts covering the practical
range of wing-geometry parameters and Mach number
from which fairly rapid estimates of the derivatives
may be obtained.

AERODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF A REFINED
DEEP-STEP PLANING-TAIL FLYING-BOAT HULL
WITH VARIOUS FOREBODY AND AFTERBODY
SHAPES. John M. Riebe and Rodger L. Naeseth.
1953. ii, 19p. diagrs., photos., 8 tabs. (NACA
Rept. 1144. Formerly TN 2489; RM L8F01)

An investigation was made in the Langley 300-mph
7- by 10-foot tunnel to determine the aerodynamic
characteristics of a refined deep-step planing-tail
hull with various forebody and afterbody shapes and,
for comparison, a streamline body simulating the
fuselage of a modern transport airplane. The result
of the tests indicated that the configurations incor-
porating a forebody with a length-beam ratio of 7 had
lower minimum drag coefficients than the configura-
tions incorporating a forebody with length-beam ratio
of 5. The lowest minimum drag coefficients, which
were considerably less than that of a conventional
hull and slightly less than that of a streamline body,
were obtained on the length-beam-ratio-7l forebody,
alone and with round center boom. Drag coefficients
and longitudinal- and lateral-stability parameters
presented include the interference of a 21-percent-
thick support wing.

Drop hammer tests with different shock strut models
and shock strut oils were performed at temperatures
ranging to -40 C. The various shock strut models do
not differ essentially regarding their springing and
damping properties at low temperatures; however,
the influence of the different shock strut oils on the
springing properties at low temperatures varies
greatly-

THEORETICAL INVESTIGATION AT SUBSONIC
SPEEDS OF THE FLOW AHEAD OF A SLENDER
INCLINED PARABOLIC-ARC BODY OF REVOLU-
TION AND CORRE LATION WITH EXPERIMENTAL
DATA OBTAINED AT LOW SPEEDS. William Letko
and Edward C. B. Danforth, III. July 1954. 56p.
diagrs. (NACA TN 3205)

Approximate formulas, based on subsonic linearized
theory, are derived for the static-pressure incre-
ment and flow inclination ahead of slender inclined
parabolic-are bodies of revolution at subsonic
speeds. Charts are presented from which these
quantities can be estimated. Some comparisons with
experimental data obtained for a Mach number of
0. 21 are also presented. Consideration is given to
the induced effects of the wing and mounting boom on
flow-inclination measurements.

HEAT, MASS, AND MOMENTUM TRANSFER FOR
FLOW OVER A FLAT PLATE WITH BLOWING OR
SUCTION. H. S. Mickley, R. C. Ross, A. L. Squyers
and W. E. Stewart, Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. July 1954. ii, 149p. diagrs., photos.,
9 tabs. (NACA TN 3208)

The effect on the boundary layer of sucking or blow-
ing air through a porous flat plate into or out of a
main air stream flowing parallel to the plate was
studied theoretically and experimentally. Laminar-
boundary-layer theory was used to calculate transfer
coefficients and velocity, temperature, and concentra-
tion profiles in laminar, zero Euler number flow
under certain restricted mass transfer conditions and
for a range of Prandt1 or Schmidt numbers. For tur-
bulent flow film theory was used to predice the effect
of mass transfer on friction, heat, and mass transfer
coefficients. Experimental measurements of velocity
and temperature profiles and of friction and heat
transfer coefficients were carried out over a range
of flow conditions.

SHOCK-TURBULENCE INTERACTION AND THE
GENERATION O1F NOISE. H. S. Ribner. July 1954.
60p. diagrs., tab. (NACA TN 3255)

Interaction of convected field of turbulence with shock
wave is analyzed to yield modified turbulence, entro-
py spottiness, and noise generated downstream of the
shock. Analysis is generalization of single-spectrum-
wave treatment of TN 2864. Formulas for spectra
and correlations are obtained. Numerical calcula-
tions yield curves of rms velocity components, tem-
perature, pressure, and noise in db against Mach
number for M = 1 to *; both isotropic and strongly
axisymmetric (lateral/longitudinal = 36/1) initial
turbulence are treated. In either case, turbulence of
0.1 percent longitudinal component generates about
120 dbs of noise.

EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF TEMPERA-

ANGLE OF ATTACK AT A MACH NUMBER OF 3.12.
John R. Jack and Barry Moskowitz. July 1954. 15p.
diagrs. (NACA TN 3256)

At angles of attack from 00 to 100 over the Reynolds
number range (1.5 to 8 x 106), an increase in angle of
attack increased the equilibrium surface tempera-
tures in the laminar and turbulent flow regions. The
equilibrium surface temperatures in regions of prob-
abe cross-flow se Iratmon were in tim saomet rnge

ward surface, local recovery factors in the fully
laminar and turbulent regions were not significantly
affected by changes in angle of attack.

A method is described for calibrating a wind-tunnel
balance consisting of a sting support bearing strain
gages. The form of calibration obtained is essen-
tially suitable for the automatic computing of wind-
tunnel results. The technique of static loading of
the balance is discussed, and an appendix contains

An application to the first rotor stage of an axial
compressor, or the capacity probe method of meas-
uring blade tip deflections is described. Results
obtained from strain gages on the same stage are in-
cluded. Results from the capacity probe method
were not satisfactory and it is suggested that the
standards of stability required by this method were
not practicable in this instance.

June 1954. ii, 93p. diagrs., photos. (Trans. from

A comparison of the theoretically and experimentally
determined values of pressure, drag. and lift on a
rlsting cylinder in fluid flow gives information on
how far the asymptotic flow theory is capable of
reproducing the characteristic properties of the
actual flow in the case of small friction. The pres-
sure values as well as the lift coefficients agree with
experiments. For a prescribed flow in the case of
small friction the flow process can be represented by
determination of the wake form and formation of the
corresponding potential expressions.
