A digital computer program for determining the frequency response of a linear system to a sinusoidal excitation
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1969-12)
The application of digital computers for the simulation of physical systems has become widespread. This paper describes a program designed to measure the frequency response of the simulation model of a linear system.
Interaction of two sound beams in water.
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1969-10)
Modern sonars are large in size. This is a result of several factors connected with operation at low frequencies. Non-linear interaction of two high-frequency sound beams in water may provide a source of low-frequency ...
Development of a simulator for the evaluation of rigid and movable aircraft controls
A simulator was constructed with two sets of aircraft controls; one set was movable and one set was rigid. The control output signals were integrated into an analog computer circuit to provide the desired aerodynamic ...
Investigation of temperature fluctuations near the air-sea interface
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1968-12)
Measurements of air temperature fluctuations as close as 2.5 cm above the surface of a pond in the presence of wind generated waves were made. Fast response thermistors were used, one at constant absolute height and one ...
Sub-Bottom Sounding - A Survey for Naval Applications
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1968-06)
The sub-bottom profiling techniques have vastly improve over the last several years. Many commercial companies are presently engaged in the manufacture of either individual components or the entire system largely as a ...
Selection of U.S. Navy Ship alterations and improvements on the basis of efficient allocation of resources.
(University of Maryland, 1968)
This paper describes and exercises a five-step methodology designed to assist the military planner in solving t he problem of selecting t he most economically efficient U. S. Navy ship alteration or modification from ...
An economic analysis of the use of expendable light-weight air-launched practice torpedoes in the U.S. Navy.
(University of Maryland, 1968)
This thesis develops and exercises the methodology to assist the decision-maker in evaluating the present day concept of air-launched torpedoes in the U.S. Navy from an economic standpoint. It investigates the present ...
Finite-amplitude standing waves in rigid-walled tubes
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967-12)
Finite-amplitude standing wave effects in air at ambient conditions contained in rigid-walled cylindrical tubes with large length to diameter ratios were experimentally investigated. These results were compared to a ...
Proration of natural gas in Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas
(Southern Methodist University, 1967-12)
In 1963, the United States Supreme Court handed down its decision in the case of Northern Natural Gas Company v. State Corporation Commission, 372 U.S. 84. This decision impaired the ability of the states to protect the ...
Characteristic features of the Florida Current
(University of Miami, 1967-05)
Characteristic features of the velocity and temperature fields in the Florida Current are isolated and discussed on the basis of time-averaged free instrument data obtained during approximately 40 transacts across the ...
