Abstract:

The report presents technical results and describes progress in several phases of continuing applied research and development related to the design and development of high-performance fluid control devices for advanced aerospace systems. Continued emphasis is placed on pneumatic components and systems which are capable of performing over wide ranges of temperature and in the presence of intense radiation. The report describes current work in the Engineering Projects Laboratory dealing with a new pulse actuation system, a pneumatic pulse-lengthmodulated servo system, a gas-operated accelerometer, the dispersion of transients in fluid transmission lines, a new electrostatic pure fluid jet valve, a dirt-insensitive flapper valve, and gas-lubricated bearings.
