Finite element solution of the nonlinear coupled neutronic-energy equations for a fast reactor fuel cell.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-12)
A transient overpower (TOP) accident in a Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) is considered. The analysis is formulated to model the dynamic response of the reactor fuel subassembly during the initial period of ...
Consistent stresses for the finite element stiffness method
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1972-12)
Conjugate basic functions which are continuous throughout a model are used to approximate a stress field. This conjugate approximation has less mean error than approximations calculated using conventional finite element ...
An investigation of initial yield surfaces for unidirectional reinforced composites.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1972-03)
Initial yield surfaces of unidirectional fiber reinforced composites subjected to combined longitudinal, transverse normal, and longitudinal shear loads are calculated. The composite is composed of filaments arranged in ...
The modeling and analysis of an elastic mechanism with clearances
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-12)
The classical approach for the analysis of linkages has been to assume rigid elements during operation. As the operational speeds of mechanisms increase, this assumption creates larger errors in the analysis. Thus a better ...
