This paper discusses the on-orbit performance and performance degradation of the International Space Station P6 solar array wings (SAWs) from the period of December 2000 through February 2003. Data selection considerations and data reduction methods are reviewed along with the approach for calculating array performance degradation based on measured string shunt current levels. Measured degradation rates are compared with those predicted by the computational tool SPACE and prior degradation...

THE EFFECT OF WATER ABSORPTION ON INFRARED REFLECTION IS USED AS A MEANS OF CONTINUOUS HUMIDITY MEASUREMENT. FOR THIS PURPOSE, THE INTENSITIES AT A MEASURED WAVELENGTH OF 1.93 MICRONS ARE COMPARED WITH THOSE OF A COMPARISON WAVELENGTH OF 1.7 MICRONS. AT THE WAVELENGTH 1.93 MICRONS, THERE IS A LARGE AMOUNT OF ABSORPTION. AT THE COMPARISON WAVELENGTH 1.7 MICRONS, THERE IS ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF ABSORPTION. THE DEPENDENCE OF THE REFLECTION ON THE WATER CONTENT IS STUDIED USING NUMEROUS SPECTRAL...

Procedures and techniques are discussed for retrieving payloads that are inertially or local vertical/local horizontal (LVLH) stabilized. Selection of the retrieval profile to be used depends on several factors: (1) control authority of the payload, (2) payload sensitivity to primary reaction control system (PRCS) plumes, (3) whether the payload is inertially or LVLH stabilized, (4) location of the grapple fixture, and (5) orbiter propellant consumption. The general retrieval profiles...

Turbulent boundary layer (TBL) noise is considered a primary factor in the interior noise experienced by passengers aboard commercial airliners. There have been numerous investigations of interior noise control devoted to aircraft panels; however, practical realization is a challenge since the physical boundary conditions are uncertain at best. In most prior studies, pinned or clamped boundary conditions have been assumed; however, realistic panels likely display a range of varying boundary...

The procedure to generate the grid around a complex wing configuration is presented in this report. The automatic grid generation utilizes the Modified Advancing Front Method as a predictor and an elliptic scheme as a corrector. The scheme will advance the surface grid one cell outward and the newly obtained grid is corrected using the Laplace equation. The predictor-corrector step ensures that the grid produced will be smooth for every configuration. The predictor-corrector scheme is extended...

Each of the Kepler elements is represented by an independent function of time. The long-period perturbing effects of the earth, sun, and...

Therefore, in principle, these models give a more accurate description of complicated flow fields (e.g. flows with large anisotropy in turbulence, such as near the leading edge of a turbine blade) than the two equation models. The objectives of this document are to assess the performance of the various second order turbulence models in benchmark flows and to...

Correlated squeezed states for a quantum oscillator are constructed based on the method of quantum integrals of motion. The quantum oscillator is acted upon by short duration pulses. Three delta-kickings of frequency are used to model the pulses' dependence upon the time aspects of the frequency of the oscillator. Additionally, the correlation coefficient and quantum variances of operations of coordinates and momenta are written in explicit form.

The aerospace industry has long been perceived as the domain of both physicists and mechanical engineers. This perception has endured even though the primary method of providing the thrust necessary to launch a rocket into space is chemical in nature. The chemical engineering and chemistry personnel behind the systems that provide access to space have labored in the shadows of the physicists and mechanical engineers. As exploration into the cosmos moves farther away from Earth, there is a very...

The lack of progress in understanding the physics of rotorcraft loads and vibration over the last 30 years is addressed in this paper. As befits this extraordinarily difficult problem, the reasons for the lack of progress are complicated and difficult to ascertain. It is proposed here that the difficulty lies within at least three areas: 1) a loss of perspective as to what are the key factors in rotor loads and vibration, 2) the overlooking of serious unsolved problems in the field, and 3)...
