Fabrication and characterization of surrogate glasses aimed to validate nuclear forensic techniques
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-12)
The aim of this study was the fabrication and characterization of surrogate glasses to support validation of a nuclear forensic technique called Laser-Driven Hydrothermal Processing (LDHP). Previous examination of inhomogeneous ...
Closed-loop optimal control implementations for space applications
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-12)
This thesis explores concepts for a closed-loop optimal control implementation of minimum-time attitude maneuvers of spacecraft. The most common implementation of optimal control solutions is via open-loop commands. However, ...
