An experimental investigation of the dual chamber rocket motor
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-06)
An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility and practicality of the dual rocket motor concept. Cold flow studies were performed with the aid of a ground-test simulator which incorporated a ...
A Game Theoretic Analysis of the Convoy-ASW Problem
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967-12)
The problem of allocation of ASW forces assigned to an oceanic convoy in a submarine warfare environment is postulated as a two-person game with the payoff function being based on the "formula of random search". The ...
Oceanic data assimilation tests with a one-dimensional model.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1981-12)
A data assimilation technique for incorporating relatively sparse ocean thermal structure profiles into the Garwood (1977) Oceanic Planetary Boundary Layer (OPBL) model is proposed. A summary of the data assimilation ...
Swell prediction by a multiple point-source swell generation model
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-03)
A method was developed for forecasting swell using a spectral wave-generation model based on a multiple point-source concept of swell origin. The multiple point-source concept considers that the peak-energy swell emanating ...
Development and application of an analog scheme for predicting the intensification of Western North Pacific tropical cyclones
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-03)
Various meteorological parameters were examined to determine their predictive value for forecasting intensity changes of Western North Pacific tropical cyclones using an analog forecast scheme. A number of procedures ...
Grip pressure as a measure of task difficulty in compensatory tracking tasks
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-09)
The feasibility of utilizing the grip pressure exerted on a rigid control stick as a measure of tracking task difficulty was investigated. A device was engineered to measure grip pressure independent of control force. ...
Naval record communications : demand reduction for the Naval Telecommunications System
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-06)
This thesis analyzes the economic causes for continued excess demand in the Naval Telecommunications System (NTS). It provides a framework for relating the NTS market to the market for all Naval record communications. ...
Factors influencing ship repair part consumption
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-09)
An investigation was made of possible linear relationships between several specific factors concerning ships of the Navy and the actual repair part consumption dollar figures for a two year period for the purpose of using ...
