Model based design and verification of a rapid dive controller for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-03); NPS 69-89-04
Autonomous Undervvater Vehicles are being considered today by many organizations as a lovv cost substitute for manned vehicles. Requirements forautonomy emphasize the need for a robust system controller that can ...
An electron microscopy study of tweed microstructures and premartensitic effects in high damping 53Cu45Mn2A1 alloy
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1988-03)
The evolution of tweed microstructure upon aging a 53Cu45Mn2Al alloy was studied in the transmission electron microscope (TEM). Characteristic (110) tweed contrast develops after the alloy is aged for 4 hours or longer at ...
An experimental evaluation of the thermal performance of a rotating heat pipe with internal axial fins
A rotating heat pipe was tested using two different copper condensers (a smooth cylinder and a cylinder with 22 straight axial fins) and water as the working fluid. The smooth condenser was tested at rotational speed of ...
Analytical treatment of gravity effects on gas loaded variable conductance heat pipes.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1980-12)
The formulation of a one-dimensional analytical model representing steady state operation of a vertically oriented gas loaded variable conductance heat pipe is presented. The model includes not only the effects of binary ...
