New Conceptual Configuration For Air-breathing Hypersonic Airplanes
2013-12-17 15:00:13

Science China Press How to design a hypersonic airplane that travels from Beijing to New York in only two hours? Dr. Cui Kai and his group from State Key Laboratory of High Temperature Gas Dynamics, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences set out to tackle this problem. After three years of innovative research, they presented a body-wing-blending configuration with double flanking air inlets layout to aim at design requirements of high lift-to-drag ratio as well as high...

2013-11-14 17:55:46

[ Watch the Video: The Mystery Behind Jupiter's Long-lived Storm ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A defining mark of Jupiter, the Great Red Spot, should have disappeared centuries ago, according to prevailing theories. A new model being presented at the 66th Annual Division of Fluid Dynamics Meeting in Pittsburgh next week provides a possible explanation for why the turbulent red vortex has lasted so long. "Based on current theories, the Great Red Spot...

Tests Of 757 Vertical Tail With Advanced Technology Completed
2013-11-14 16:12:24

NASA NASA's Ames Research Center and NASA's Langley Research Center, in partnership with The Boeing Co., have completed wind tunnel testing of a full-scale Boeing 757 vertical tail model equipped with active flow control technology. A major objective of the tests was to show active flow control can enhance the performance of a vertical tail enough to enable future designers to reduce the size of the structure for a whole family of airplanes. That could reduce the penalties related to...

The boomerang is a flying tool, made of wood or carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, with a curved shape that is often used as a weapon or for sport. They have also been made of bones and come in many different shapes and sizes depending on their geographic or tribal origins and their intended function. The most commonly recognizable type is the returning boomerang which travels in an elliptical path and returns to its point of origin. The returning boomerang has lopsided wings in order to create...
