Sacramento’s Moon Rockets (Images of Modern America) by Alan Lawrie,Rebecca Allen,Don Brincka

By Alan Lawrie,Rebecca Allen,Don Brincka

On July sixteen, 1969, a Saturn V rocket introduced the Apollo spacecraft wearing American astronauts to the outside of the moon, the place Neil Armstrong may take his well-known first steps and satisfy Pres. John F. Kennedy�s objective of a winning lunar touchdown through the top of the last decade. This occasion marks one of many maximum achievements in human historical past and is largely as a result of the years of rocket checking out that came about on the Douglas plane Company�s Sacramento checking out facility (SACTO). The SACTO facility performed some of the most vital roles within the luck of the Apollo eleven lunar venture and is the place the Saturn rocket�s S-IVB level used to be built and tested�making this historical accomplishment possible.

Macroscopic Transport Equations for Rarefied Gas Flows: Approximation Methods in Kinetic Theory (Interaction of Mechanics and Mathematics)

The well-known delivery legislation of Navier-Stokes and Fourier fail for the simulation of tactics on lengthscales within the order of the suggest loose course of a particle that's while the Knudsen quantity isn't really sufficiently small. hence, the right kind simulation of flows in rarefied gases calls for a extra specified description.

Gas Cyclones and Swirl Tubes: Principles, Design, and Operation

Believed to be a publishing first whilst initially introduced out, this ebook covers all facets of centrifugal fuel cleansing units. those are cyclones used as gas-solid separators for dedusting and as gas-liquid separators for demisting. The optimization of cyclone functionality for any given job is a sought-after objective – however it is person who is seldom completed in perform.
