Investigation of thermoacoustic muffler
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-12)
The design, construction and testing of a thermoacoustic muffler is discussed. The performance of the muffler is characterized by its ability to reduce the quality factor Q of an acoustic resonator. Measurement of the Q ...
Investigation of a heat driven thermoacoustic prime mover above onset of self-oscillation
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-09)
The goal of this thesis is to investigate the work output of a heat riven thermoacoustic prime mover above onset of self-oscillation. The exponentially growing sound wave, generated when a prime mover is initially "turned ...
Spectra of stable sonoluminescence
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-12)
The continuous emission of picosecond pulses of light has been observed to originate from a bubble trapped at the pressure antinode of a resonant sound field in water and in water/glycerin mixtures. The spectra of this ...
