Energy-efficient underwater surveillance by means of hybrid aquacopters
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-12)
This thesis develops algorithms in support of a prototype hybrid air-water quadcopter platform: the AquaQuad. We consider the scenario in which AquaQuads with underwater acoustic sensing capabilities are tracking a submerged ...
Development of carbon nanotube-based sensor to monitor crack growth in cracked aluminum structures underneath composite patching
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-06)
This paper presents the design of a carbon nanotube-based sensor to detect crack propagation in aluminum structures underneath composite patching. Initial tests are utilized to determine the correct procedure and materials ...
Systematic review of UIT parameters on residual stresses of sensitized AA5456 and field based residual stress measurements for predicting and mitigating stress corrosion cracking
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-03)
This thesis focuses on the use of x-ray diffraction to measure residual stresses around welds in aluminum ship structures both in the laboratory and in the field. Tensile residual stresses are often generated during welding ...
