Cellular automata an approach to wave propagation and fracture mechanics problems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2006-12)
The Cellular Automata (CA) method is based on the idea that the macroscopic behavior of a system can be captured by using simple local rules running at a microscopic level. In other words, a system can be modeled by means ...
Steady state and transient measurements within a compressor rotor during steam-induced stall at transonic operational speeds
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2006-09)
Steam leakage from an aircraft carrier catapult is sometimes ingested into the aircraft engines upon launch which may induce compressor stall. Investigation of this phenomenon is of particular interest to the Navy with its ...
