Ripcord: Screaming Eagles Under Siege, Vietnam 1970

On April 10, 1970, Hill 927 was once occupied by means of soldiers of the Screaming Eagles of the one hundred and first Airborne department. by means of July, the actions of the artillery and infantry of Ripcord had stuck the eye of the NVA (North Vietnamese military) and an extended and lethal siege ensued. Ripcord used to be the Screaming Eagles' final likelihood to do major harm to the NVA within the A Shau Valley ahead of the department used to be withdrawn from Vietnam and lower back to the USA.

Example text

For single stage pumps, this casing will include a volute and perhaps a set of diffuser vanes immediately surrounding the impeller; so, the casing diameter can be 50% greater than D2 or more. On multistage pumps (many with radial-outflow diffusers and return vanes), this excess is often less than 50%. Single-stage pump axial length includes provision for inlet passageways and bearing housings and is therefore approximately the same as the overall pump diameter. On the other hand, the axial length of a stage in a multistage pump is often less than half of the impeller diameter.

Hydraulic losses in the main flow passages of the pump; namely, inlet branch, impeller, diffuser or volute, return passages in multistage pumps, and outlet branch. The energy loss per unit mass is ggHL ϭ g(Hi Ϫ ⌬H), the ratio of output head ⌬H to the input head Hi being the hydraulic efficiency. This is the major focus of the designer for typical centrifugal pump geometries (which are associated with normal “specific speeds”—to be defined later). The other two component efficiencies are then quite high and of relatively little consequence.

The First Law of Thermodynamics Fluid flow, whether liquid or gas, through a centrifugal pump is essentially adiabatic, heat transfer being negligible in comparison to the other forms of energy involved in the energy transfer process. ) Further, while the delivery of energy to fluid by rotating blades is inherently unsteady (varying pressure from blade to blade as viewed in an absolute reference frame), the flow across the boundaries of a control volume surrounding the pump is essentially steady, and the first law of thermodynamics for the pump can be expressed in the form of the adiabatic steady-flow energy equation (Eq.
