A photoelastic investigation of thermal stresses.
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1958)
This report describes a photoelastic technique for the evaluation of thermal stresses in models fabricated of paraplex p-43. The optical and physical properties of this polyester resin were determined over the temperature ...
Creep behavior of magnesium at low temperatures.
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1955)
Development of new engineering equipment is more often then not impeded by lack of suitable material with physical properties capable of fulfilling the rigid requirements im- . posed by the new advanced designs. The ...
Effect of temperature on the notch sensitivity of a class 303, 18-8 austenitic stainless steel.
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1955)
The advent of the era of high temperature heat engines without the appearance of a well established new metal or "super -alloy" to meet the more rigid requirements makes necessary a new and wider understanding of the ...
Stress distribution in pipe ells with straight end extensions under internal pressure
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1954)
The experimental investigation of stresses in steel pipe ells under internal static pressure, herein reported, was conducted at the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School from January to April 1954. Professor R. E. Newton acted ...
The effect of vibration on heat transfer by forced convection in a horizontal tube
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1953)
It has been noted that, on occasion, certain standard industrial heat exchanger equipment, when used in the presence of operating machinery and consequently subjected to sympathetic vibrations, performed beyond expectations ...
Torsion in an incomplete tore: an approximate solution for the stress distribution in a circular ring sector under uniform torsion using energy methods.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1952-05)
The stress distribution in an incomplete tore loaded as shown in Fig. 1 is of particular interest since it very closely approximates that in heavy close-coiled helical springs under axial tension or compression. Necessarily ...
A comparison of forced and natural circulation steam generators.
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1952)
For a number of years, especially since the end of World War II, the engineering literature has contained an increasing number of references to forced circulation boilers. Most of these articles extol the virtues of ...
A temperature survey of the region aft of a cooling orifice of an air film cooled metal surface exposed to high temperature and high velocity gases
(St. Paul, Minnesota; University of Minnesota, 1951-08)
The object of this investigation was to determine the temperature pattern in the region downstream from a cooling air orifice of an air film cooled simulated turbine blade exposed to high velocity and high temperature ...
The mechanism of radial compressor instability
(Troy, New York; Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 1951-05)
The limit imposed on the operating range of a radial flow compressor by surging or pulsations in the reduced flow region has long been a source of concern to design engineers who would like to use this otherwise simple, ...
An introduction to ultra-high-frequency converters for television receivers
(Annapolis, Maryland: Naval Postgraduate School ;, 1951)
This paper is not intended to prove the superiority of certain configurations over others, but rather to indicate some of the factors to be considered and the methods used in the design of a satisfactory ultra-high-frequency ...
