About this title

Synopsis:

This amazing set of two CD-ROMs provides a unique collection of NASA and NACA technical reports as maintained on the NASA Dryden Technical Reports Server (DTRS). The reports cover the gamut of aerospace research topics over the decades, including the SR-71 and Space Shuttle, many types of X-planes, fighter plane prototypes, and supersonic and hypersonic research.

Some of the titles in the collection:

Ground and Flight Evaluation of a Small-Scale Inflatable-Wing Aircraft; Pilot-Induced Oscillation Research: Status at the End of the Century; ERAST: Scientific Applications and Technology Commercialization; In-Flight Wing Pressure Distributions for the NASA F/A-18A High Alpha Research Vehicle; Research Engineering Annual Report; Flow-Field Survey in the Test Region of the SR-71 Aircraft Test Bed Configuration; Flying Quality Analysis of a JAS 39 Gripen Ministick Controller in an F/A-18 Aircraft; Thermoelastic Analysis of Hyper-X Camera Windows Suddenly Exposed to Mach 7 Stagnation Aerothermal Shock; Results from F-18B Stability and Control Parameter Estimation Flight Tests at High Dynamic Pressures; A Method for Calculating Transient Surface Temperatures and Surface Heating Rates for High-Speed Aircraft; Fifty Years of Flight Research: An Annotated Bibliography of Technical Publications of NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, 1946-1996; Open-Mode Debonding Analysis of Curved Sandwich Panels Subjected to Heating and Cryogenic Cooling on Opposite Faces; Initial Flight Test of the Production Support Flight Control Computers at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center; Reconfigurable Flight Control Designs with Application to the X-33 Vehicle; Design and Calibration of an Airborne Multichannel Swept-Tuned Spectrum Analyzer; Estimated Benefits of Variable-Geometry Wing Camber Control for Transport Aircraft; Inlet Flow Characteristics During Rapid Maneuvers for an F/A-18A Airplane; Automated Testing Experience of the Linear Aerospike SR-71 Experiment (LASRE) Controller; Boundary-Layer Transition Results From the F-16XL-2 Supersonic Laminar Flow Control Experiment; Mechanical-and Thermal-Buckling Behavior of Rectangular Plates With Different Central Cutouts; Robust Flutter Margin Analysis That Incorporates Flight Data; Design and Calibration of the X-33 Flush Airdata Sensing (FADS) System; Development of the X-33 Aerodynamic Uncertainty Model; Using Engine Thrust for Emergency Flight Control: MD-11 and B-747 Results; Recent Flight Test Experience with Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center; Operational Concepts for Uninhabited Tactical Aircraft; Forebody Flow Visualization on the F-18 HARV With Actuated Forebody Strakes; The X-33 Extended Flight Test Range; An Overview of an Experimental Demonstration Aerotow Program; Flight Testing the Linear Aerospace SR-71 Experiment (LASRE); Flight Wing Surface Presssure and Boundary-Layer Data Report from the F-111 Smooth Variable-Camber Supercritical Mission Adaptive Wing; NASA Hypersonic X-Plane Flight Development of Technologies and Capabilities for the 21st Century Access to Space; A Correlation Between Flight-Determined Derivatives and Wind-Tunnel Data for the X-24B Research Aircraft; Emergency Flight Control Using Only Engine Thrust and Lateral Center-of-Gravity Offset: A First Look; Dynamic Ground Effect for a Cranked Arrow Wing Plane; Supersonic Flying Qualities Experience Using the SR-71; Predicted Performance of a Thrust-Enhanced SR-71 Aircraft with an External Payload; Stress Analysis of B-52 Pylon Hooks for Carrying the X-38 Drop Test Vehicle; Comparative Optical Measurements of Airspeed and Aerosols on a DC-8 Aircraft; Tailored Excitation for Multivariable Stability-Margin Measurement Applied to the X-31A Nonlinear Simulation; Flight Testing the X-36: The Test Pilot's Perspective; Selected Examples of NACA/NASA Supersonic Flight Research; A Flying Qualities Study of Longitudinal Long-Term Dynamics of Hypersonic Planes; Airdata Measurement and Calibration; The NASA Landing Gear Test Airplane; Flight Simulation Software at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center; Ground-Based Sensors for the SR-71 Sonic Boom Propagation Experiment; Ground-Recorded Sonic Boom Signatures of F-18 Aircraft in Formation Flight; Preliminary Airborne Measurements for the SR-71 Sonic Boom Propagation Experiment; A Comparison of Hypersonic Vehicle Flight and Prediction Results; A Historical Overview of Flight Flutter Testing; Proceedings of the F-8 Digital Fly-By-Wire and Supercritical Wing First Flight's 20th Anniversary Celebration; The X-31A Quasi-Tailless Flight Test Results; Space Shuttle Hypersonic Aerodynamic and Aerothermodynamic Flight Research and the Comparison to Ground Test Results.

In all, the disc has over 35,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software - allowing direct viewing on Windows and Apple Macintosh systems. Reader software is included on the CD.

Our CD-ROMs are privately-compiled collections of official public domain U.S. federal government files and documents. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work utilizing the benefits of the Adobe Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed, searched by finding specific words, or printed without untold hours of tedious research and downloading. Vast archives of important public domain government information that might otherwise remain inaccessible are available for instant review no matter where you are. This book-on-a-disc makes a great reference work and educational tool. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, comprehensive, and portable - everything you need to know, from the federal sources you trust.
