Performance and optimal placement of piezoceramic actuators for shape control of a cantilever beam
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-06)
Shape control of spaceborne antennas can provide the ability to correct for effects such as thermal distortion and manufacturing errors as well as control the shape of an antenna's radiated beam. This thesis examines the ...
Evaluation of the strain energy density method of notch stress concentration calculations in the plastic range
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-03)
Accurate stress and strain calculations at a notch usually require a non-linear finite element analysis when local yielding has occurred. The strain energy density hypothesis is a method to predict these stress and strain ...
