Vibration analysis and nondestructive testing using holographic techniques.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-12)
Real-time holograms were made of Aluminum rectangular plates. The plates were cyclically vibrated with a piezoelectric driver to allow the fundamental frequencies to be measured and the mode shapes observed. These results ...
An experimental comparison of enhanced heat transfer condenser tubing.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-09)
Ten 15.9 mm (5/8 in.) nominal outside diameter geometrically enhanced tubes of different metals were tested to determine their heat transfer and hydrodynamic performance. Results were compared to smooth copper-nickel tubes. ...
An apparatus to measure dropwise condensation heat transfer coefficients of steam
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-03)
An experimental apparatus was designed and constructed for the purpose of determining dropwise condensation heat transfer coefficients on condensing surfaces of different thickness. The equipment included a completely ...
Cascade wind tunnel for transonic compressor blading studies.
The design and construction of a small, transonic, cascade wind tunnel are reported. The tunnel is of the intermittent blow-down type, and the initial test cascade models the flow at the rotor blade tips of a single ...
