Finite element analysis program (FEAP) for conduction heat transfer
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-12)
The Finite Element Analysis Program (FEAP) was expanded to solve linear and nonlinear, two and three dimensional heat conduction problems. The usual types of . boundary conditions, including radiation, may be specified. ...
Oscillating flow about tube bundles.
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-09)
The lift, drag, and inertia coefficients have been determined experimentally for various tube bundles and for two cylinders at various relative positions subjected to harmonically oscillating flow. The force coefficients ...
Transverse oscillations of smooth and rough cylinders in harmonic flow.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979)
A computer simulation of a naval boiler
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-09)
A non-linear computer model of a U.S. Navy D-type boiler was developed using lumped parameters. the program was coded in IBM CSMP-III simulation language. A companion routine was also coded to permit the user to implement ...
Shock induced structural response.
An infinitely long, ring-stiffened, submerged, elastic cylinder having uniformly spaced elastic bulkheads is the structure considered. Loading is applied by a plane acoustic shock wave with front parallel to the cylinder ...
The enhancement of heat transfer in a rotating heat pipe.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978)
Stress analysis of ceramic gas turbine blades by the finite element method. Part I.
The search for more efficient gas turbine engines has led to the proposal for the replacement of metal high temperature components with ceramic components . Essential to this effort is the numerical analysis of proposed ...
Marine steam condenser design using numerical optimization
Two separate computer codes were coup led with a constrained function minimization code to produce automated marine condenser design and optimization programs of vastly different complexity. The first program, OPCODE1, ...
Experimentally determined effects of educator geometry on the performance of exhaust gas eductors for gas turbine powered ships.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-09); NPS-69Pc77091
Cold flow model tests of exhaust gas eductors with constant area mixing stacks were conducted to evaluate the effects of geometric configuration on eductor performance. Single-nozzle and four -nozzle designs were tested. ...
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 ...
