Mean, - - - 2331

Category: Steamsteamengine00everrich

2 cylinder, 76 inches in diameter, area = 453646 ; 3 ft. 6 in. stroke; 51 revolutions; 233 is the mean pressure as per diagram.

To find this mean pressure we have drawn across the diagram ten equi-distant lines. Then, in each case, taking the length of the perpendicular lying between the steam and vacuum lines, and applying them to the scale, we find the pressuresare2575,285,285,28,27, etc., which give an average pressure of 2392 lbs. for the down stroke, and 227 lbs. for the up stroke, and a mean of 233 lbs.

Operation Market Garden and Advance to the Rhine

Category: AtlasofBattles. StrategyandTactics, CivilWartoPres

In an effort to capitalize on rapid Allied progress during August and early September 1944, General Montgomery devised a plan for paratroop landings to seize a series of important river and canal crossings that might block further advances. The projected approach through Arnhem had the advantage of bypassing the West Wall defenses of Germany (believed to be formidable) by going around their northern end. The necessity for rapid planning to keep pace with the Allied advance led to weaknesses that did not become apparent until after the fact.

Follow-on research effort to explore the aircrafts behavior at low speeds and high angles of attack was approved, using the second X-29. The follow-on program also investigated some possible benefits the X-29 configuration might have for a future fighter aircraft. For one portion of the follow-on program, the X-29 was also modified with a vortex flow control system that injected air into the vortices coming off its nose to investigate whether that technology could help control an aircraft at high angles of

F/A-18 High Angle of Attack Research Vehicle (HARV) during an engine run, with paddles behind the nozzles deflecting the exhaust upwards; in flight, this would have the effect of rotating the rear of the aircraft downward.

The very next day, 25 March, the Soviet Union overshadowed the Redstone test by launching into orbit and recovering by parachute the Korabl-Sputnik 5 spacecraft, which not only carried a small dog named Zvezdochka (Little Star) but also a full-sized space-suited mannequin cosmonaut which had been gleefully nicknamed Ivan Ivanovich.

Now suitably armed with a launch date for the first American astronaut, whose name had not yet been publicly revealed, the Soviet Union pressed ahead in an effort to completely upstage and diminish Americas space plans.

Given the important role that merchants played in financing early industrial ventures, it is not surprising that manufacturers borrowed heavily from mercantile practice in running their concerns. For bookkeeping models, for example, manufacturers turned to the double-entry methods that merchants had employed since the late middle ages.
