The CRC Handbook Of Chemistry And Physics

My first big book purchase though it was not the start of my library was the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. It really should lay flat and not be stood on end. This old CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics was sectioned alphabetically A-1 through A-x etc. I could find my way to the part I wanted by opening the book, I was very familiar with the CRC. CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics had physical processes in it that I was not aware of tell I opened it, I scanned if not read most of it. I hate biology and I hate organic chemistry, I would have to be dragged in to trying to find 5 carbons 12 hydrogen that is pentane boils at 96 degrees F. If I get another CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics it will be an old one from the 1970s like I had.

Thrust Into Space

Maxwell Hunter's book Thrust Into Space gave a good general coverage of the subject of rocket engine the basics of powered flight. I went through it quite quickly. The basics of what I needed for powered flight come from Thrust Into Space. The numbers I remember to this day are 3120 seconds or 52 minutes at 1 G equal 100000 feet per second. The time required to get to the speed of light is years alone. The 100000 feet per second is a good total mission requirement and that is what I used even in the 1990s.

From Maxwell Hunter's book Thrust Into Space I became interested in Beryllium Dihydride BeH2 as a fuel in 1975. This was untried as far as I knew. It was a solid at up to 600f, had a specific impulse of 540~ and had a good power to fuel ratio. The problems were mechanical in nature. The melting or feeding of a solid into the combustion chamber. The search would have to be for units to handle it in and method of handling it. The unit type chosen was a rod of about 2/3 of the open length area. The method of feeding them in like, the way an oil derrick drives the pipe into the ground. The method of bringing it to a combustible is the like the system cooling it before it enters the chamber. Cross flow of hot gases. The entire bay area could be filled in racks to hold the rods. From how to load I got the idea that since they are a solid form they could support their own weight while in the plane. To be removed once in space and used as more fuel. There will be several parts or concepts of this research that will show up in future projects.

The Machinery's Handbook From my library I will use the Machinery's Handbook for the equations for the first plane I will design. It will be the basis for that plane and the nuclear design and those up through today. Fuel cleared out of an open bay for human use. The seat was to lay back to allow access to the 'living area' and equipment. This type of seat back would have to be reinforced and have pins into the wall on either side of the seat. This is necessary for the smallest possible plane. The Machinery's Handbook also lists strengths of materials bolts nut etc.

I will after this look into using Beryllium Dihydride from Maxwell Hunter's book Thrust Into Space as a moderator in a Nerva Rocket type engine. The Nerva style engine if over heated would spray out the core. The use of a very good moderator (Better than carbon or water or heavy water), larger open areas, absorptive surfaces, movable core parts and being able to poison the chain reaction with nitrogen would be acceptable. There would not be though with 10E16 neutrons coming out the back end. I thought that they were going to get a fusion reactor in the near future. I had decided to just refine this design. The first projects Maxwell Hunter's book Thrust Into Space inspired where I would find what I could in the Machinery's Handbook a helpful in broadening my view of the subject.

The problem with the neutrons will lead to tabling this type of design. Only to be used if a war had started or a bomb was dropped. It ends up having a purpose there and no harm. Worst comes to worst I could get out of here. Maybe not till then though.

I will consider options for dealing with the neutrons and make a discovery but it will not fix the problem. I will just leave it there and work on other possibilities. (Considering 9-11 I would not considered it wise.)

I Did Not Keep Track Names Of Most Of The Books

My library will had included books on the following subject. I could tell you the size and the color but not the title or the author I kept no references as I was not planning on writing anything.

One of the books was on some of the odd things that could show up in some of the missile and rocket designs. The other sections were about metals then being used and metals that might be considered for future use. The standard metals aluminum, steel, stainless steel properties were discussed and the new metals were compared to them. The new metals or metals treated in a new way titanium, magnesium, beryllium, the alloy beryllium-aluminum as well as margining steel very slow heat treatment. The metals being considered were talk about in terms of both their possible uses and how they would have to be handled. Problems that had not been solved were pointed out along with some things that had been tried. Composite materials and shapes like honeycombs were discussed along with their properties. I considered this very helpful, because it explained a lot more just what could not be done but what had already been tried to fix the problem.

The most notable articles other then the section on metals was the section on the Atlas rocket. The Atlas Rocket can not support it's own wait without it's tanks being pressurized. The loads the structure had to bear through it's flight path from standing on the pad to the cross loads due to the fact the flying near horizontal, hoop stress loads, etc. The equations were solved in the book). This broadened the usefulness of the Machinery's Handbooks equations.

There was another book from my library was on considering problems of supersonic and hypersonic flight (up to about mach 10). The book was written about 1960. The hypersonic experimental aircraft engines proposed in the 1980s were engine designs proposed in that book. The book was based on the results of experiments preformed in the 50s. The X-43 is in part based on design ideas from that book, difference what I consider to be it's reason for possible failure. The early scramjets I worked on where based on a different design from that book.

Another from my library was on how to determine the cause of an airplane crash and the condition of the aircraft at the time of the crash. On how to tell if the engine running when it hit the ground. How to tell what systems might have failed. What it will look like if a bearing fails. The signs that an engine may have ingested metal. If a compressor blade broke and then went through the burners and was sprayed on the turbine. Before it hit the ground These of course make up a list of problems that no one is going tell you to watch out for. When they show the hub of a compressor on the ground I know it hit at full throttle. Ouch!

Now It Was Really A Library

The amount of books in my library is about enough to cover shelves 6 feet X 6 feet. Plus some stored in the closet. The book not listed are important. Texts on Chemistry and Physics about 1 per decade from 1910 - 1950. The old book experiment were easier. It was quite a little library.
