Computer program for conceptual helicopter design
The conceptual phase of helicopter design requires that many calculations and iterations be completed. Often specifications are exceeded in the latter stages of the design, requiring a complete rework of the design to ...
Computer-controlled data acquisition and analysis
A computer-controlled data acquisition and analysis system was designed, built and tested. All of the required elements of a complete data acquisition system were assembled, including transducers, amplifiers, signal ...
Controlled diffusion compressor blade wake measurements
A controlled-diffusion compressor stator blade-element design was re-tested in an academic cascade wind tunnel to obtain data with which to assess viscous computational prediction methods. Tests were conducted near design ...
Flow field measuremnts of an airfoil with deflected spoiler using a two-component LDV system
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1986-09); NPS-67-86-008
The primary goals of this thesis included developing a computer-integrated LDV system, utilizing the LDV system to measure the mean and fluctuating quantities of the flow field of an airfoil-spoiler system, and comparing ...
Survivability considerations during aircraft conceptual design
Survivability, capability, maintainability, and reliability will establish the effectiveness of a combat aircraft. Considerations for the "ilities" must take place during the conceptual design phase. Retrofit of ...
Experimental procedures for lifetime testing or graphite bundles under constant load
An experimental procedure is presented for lifetime testing of graphite bundles under constant load. The attributes of the experiment are expedience in implementation and a substantial accumulation of information ...
State-space analysis of the Trident II Mark 6 gyro
This thesis conducts a state-space analysis of the Mark 6 gyro used in the Trident II missile system. Optimal control techniques, utilizing a region controller, have been employed in designing a gyro controller. The response ...
