Recent Productivity Improvements to the National Transonic Facility Thomas G. Popernack, Jr. George H. Sydnor NASA Langley Research Center Hampton, VA 20th AIAA Advanced Measurement and Ground Testing Technology Conference June/ Albuquerque, NM. Recent Productivity Improvements to the National Transonic Facility.

By Jr. Thomas G. Popernack and George H. Sydnor. Abstract. Productivity gains have recently been made at the National Transonic Facility wind tunnel at NASA Langley Research Center.

A team was assigned to assess and set productivity goals to achieve the desired operating cost Cited by: 4. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA The U.S.

National Transonic Facility has a Reynolds number capability of million, but its productivity is an order of magnitude less than other large transonic facilities. Thus, even though it has a limited (design-verification) role to play in the development of new. Recent wind-tunnel tests at the NASA Langley Research Center National Transonic Facility utilized high-pressure bellows to route air to the model for evaluating aircraft circulation control.

NASA's National Transonic Facility can test at much higher Reynolds numbers than the new European Transonic Wind Tunnel (ETW).

However, the National Transonic Facility is primarily a research facility, and it has very low productivity.

Recent productivity improvements to the National Transonic Facility. Thomas Popernack, Update on recent and planned improvements in transonic testing at AEDC. William Peters. Recent data quality improvements at the National Transonic Facility have an intended goal of reducing the Mach number variation in a data point to within plus or minuswith the ultimate goal of reducing the data repeatability of the drag coefficient for full-span subsonic transport models at transonic speeds to within half a drag count.

A series of NASA/Boeing cooperative low speed wind tunnel tests was conducted in the National Transonic Facility (NTF) between and using a. productivity and data quality assurance be considered. The efforts have focused on all of the drivers for test cycle time reduction, including process centered improvements, facility upgrades, technological improvements to enhance facility readiness and productivity, as well as advanced measurement techniques.

The application of internet. One of Langley Research Center's most advanced facilities is the National Transonic Facility (NTF), which completed its first year of operation in In the NTF, super cold liquid nitrogen is injected and evaporated into a gas that is accelerated through the tunnel's test.

In Septembera project was initiated to replace the existing drive line at NASA's most unique transonic wind tunnel, the National Transonic Facility (NTF), with a single MW synchronous motor driven by a Load Commutated Inverter (LCI).

This Adjustable Speed Drive (ASD) system also included a custom four-winding transformer, harmonic filter, exciter, switchgear, control system, and. productivity improvements - people, product, policy, and process.

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.

Facility Description The National Transonic Facility (NTF) is a fan-driven, closed-circuit, continuous-flow cryogenic pressurized wind tunnel that became operational in (Figure 2).

Details of the improvements at the NTF are discussed in AIAA (Recent Improvements in Semi-span Testing at the National Transonic Facility). The development work at the NTF culminated with validation testing of a semi-span model at full.

Its greatest potential is to provide basic research data in the high Reynolds number range that cannot be obtained in other facilities.The National Transonic Facility (NTF), also known internally as facilityis a high-pressure, cryogenic, closed-circuit wind tunnel at the Langley Research Center in Hampton, uses nitrogen gas, at high pressure, to cool the air which allows flight aerodynamics to be duplicated in small scale.

The cross section of the tunnel is feet ( m) high and feet ( m) wide.
