The nonlinear dynamic finite element code DYnamic Crash Analysis of STructures (DYCAST) was used to model an accident scenario that occurred at the National Transonic Facility (NTF) wind tunnel.

A post mishap investigation revealed that a total of five upstream bulkhead fairing plates were missing, three in one location and two in : Martha P. Robinson and Edwin L. Fasanella. Wind tunnel blades, such as the ones in the National Transonic Facility at NASA Langley Research Center, have been subjected to damage from impacts and fatigue.

Accurate analytical models of these blades are necessary to either recertify replacement blades to be built or for redesign of these blades. An overview of the National Transonic Facility (NTF) from a research utilization perspective is provided.

This volume presents selected papers presented during the National Aerospace Propulsion Conference (NAPC) held at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. It brings together contributions from the entire propulsion community, spanning air-breathing and non-air-breathing propulsion.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): An overview of the National Transonic Facility (NTF) from a research utilization perspective is provided.

The facility was born in the s from an internationally recognized need for a high Reynolds number test capability based on previous experiences with preflight predictions of aerodynamic characteristics and an. However, the National Transonic Facility is primarily a research facility, and it has very low productivity.

Although productivity enhancements are planned, the ASEB agrees with the NFS that it is not practical to transform the National Transonic Facility into a development facility such as ETW, which was designed from the beginning to serve as a development facility.

History. The site of the National Transonic Facility (NTF) was originally the site of Langley's first large supersonic wind tunnel. The 4 x 4-Foot Supersonic Pressure Tunnel was a hurried necessity and designing began February with completion scheduled by the end of NACA launched the project of building a Mach 2 tunnel within 10 months.

The National Transonic Facility, or NTF, is the world’s largest pressurized cryogenic. wind tunnel. Its unique capabilities enable testing of scaled models at flight Reynolds. numbers in support of advanced aerodynamic concept development and assessment.

The largest of these is the new fan-driven tunnel known as the National Transonic Facility (NTF) under construction at the Langley Research Center. The U. National Transonic Facility (NTF) The NTF is a rather conventional transonic wind tunnel with only a few unconventional features, related for the most part to the cryogenic mode of operation.
