Abstract:

Contents Introduction An approximate analysis of a self-propelled vehicle in a tube with consideration of various tube end conditions The effect of simulated high forward speed on a two dimensional ground effect support Flow field around a hollow cylinder mounted in a tube Measurement of forces and moments acting on a vehicle in a tube Wall effects on the drag of a body moving in a tube Propulsion of a vehicle in a tube Analysis of the wake of a self-propelled vehicle in a duct with consideration of heat transfer and friction A note on the flow induced by a disturbance traveling in a tube On two problems of transonic nonsteady motion of a vehicle in a tube Preliminary design considerations for a 3-ft diameter tube transport pilot model Recommendations for future work.
