Solar energy design improvement: a methodology for hydronic flat place collector systems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-09)
A methodology for solar energy system design improvement has been developed and coupled with a constrained function optimization code resulting in an automated solar energy system design procedure. The scope of the ...
Investigation of heat transfer in straight and curved rectangular ducts using liquid crystals thermography
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-06)
A rectangular cross section channel with both straight and curved test sections was used to investigate the effect of Taylor-Goertler vortices on the heat transfer from the curved section by comparing the results with those ...
Model tests of multiple nozzle exhaust gas educator systems for gas turbine powered ships.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-06); NPS-69Pc77061
Cold flow model tests of multiple nozzle exhaust gas eductor systems with constant area mixing stacks were conducted to evaluate effects of geometric configuration on eductor performance. A one-dimensional analysis of a ...
Computer simulation of a propellant feed system for a liquid propellant gun
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-06)
A computer model was developed to simulate a projectile ram-propellant feed system for a Liquid Propellant Gun. Using a lumped parameter approach, a set of simultaneous differential equations was derived for the complex ...
Investigation of gravitational effects on a variable conductance heat pipe utilizing liquid crystal thermography
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1975-12)
Observations were made of the operation of a gas loaded, variable conductance heat pipe two inches in diameter and sixty inches long. The heat pipe was operated in the horizontal and vertical positions while input power ...
An experimental study of Taylor-Goertler vortices in a curved rectangular channel
A rectangular cross section channel, designed and built by R. McKee to create the laminar secondary Taylor-Goertler vortex flow, was modified to expand the experimental investigation of the vortex flow. The modification ...
Investigation of gravitational effects on the performance of variable conductance heat pipe.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-12)
A variable conductance heat pipe with a length to diameter ratio of 96 to 1 was designed and constructed. The performance characteristics of both the conventional and gas loaded variable conductance modes of operation ...
