STUDIES OF SUPERSONIC VEHICLE ELECTRIFICATION

1970-02-01
700921
Laboratory experiments with projectiles fired through an ice-fog cloud were used to study the variation of frictional charging with air speed at supersonic speeds. These experiments demonstrated that the charge imparted by each particle decreases with increasing speed at supersonic speeds, apparently because of ice crystal melting on impact. ...These experiments demonstrated that the charge imparted by each particle decreases with increasing speed at supersonic speeds, apparently because of ice crystal melting on impact. Flight instrumentation has been designed and fabricated to measure electrification parameters and effects on a supersonic test aircraft. ...Flight instrumentation has been designed and fabricated to measure electrification parameters and effects on a supersonic test aircraft. The instrumentation measures, charging rate, discharging rate, charge per particle, aircraft potential, streamer current and number of streamer pulses, variation of effective frontal area, and noise spectrum.

Scheduling the Supersonic Transport

1964-01-01
640527
New light is shed on the problems of achieving profitable use of the SST's annual seat mile capability and the difficulties in developing a schedule pattern minimizing adverse effects of necessary subsonic segments. The supersonic is considered in terms of acceptable schedule times versus optimum utilization, fixed costs as related to purchase price and amortization, and break-even load factors versus capacity generated and per mile operating costs.

Two powered-lift concepts, the tandem fan and the longitudinally-arrayed ejector, are integrated with two existing fighter aircraft, the F-l4A and F-16A respectively, to indicate the benefits and/or penalties involved with providing STOVL capability to CTOL aircraft. It is shown that properly designed powered-lift aircraft can achieve either comparable or superior mission performance relative to CTOL aircraft.
