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 ...
Finite element solution of the nonlinear coupled neutronic-energy equations for a fast reactor fuel cell.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-12)
A transient overpower (TOP) accident in a Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) is considered. The analysis is formulated to model the dynamic response of the reactor fuel subassembly during the initial period of ...
Forces on roughened cylinders in harmonic flow at high Reynolds numbers.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-09)
The in-line forces acting on sand-roughened circular cylinders immersed in an harmonically oscillating flow have been measured using a U-shaped water tunnel. The drag and the inertia coefficients have been determined ...
Fundamental vibrational frequency by a 3D - FEB procedure.
(Naval Postgraduate School, 1975)
This thesis presents a computer program which will solve for the lowest natural vibrational frequency of an arbitrarily shaped three dimensional object. The program was developed using a finite element numerical model ...
Submersible oriented platform for deep ocean sediment studies (SOPDOSS).
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1974-06)
This thesis presents the design, fabrication, and operation of a deep ocean sediment testing platform which is operated by a submersible to depths of 8000 feet. The platform has a variable ballast system and is transportable ...
Finite element solution of the interaction of a plane acoustic blast wave and a cylindric structure
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1974)
The finite element method is used to study the structural response of a submarine to an acoustic blast wave. Encounter geometry is restricted to the case of a plane wave front parallel to the axis of a right-circular ...
An investigation of initial yield surfaces for unidirectional reinforced composites.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1972-03)
Initial yield surfaces of unidirectional fiber reinforced composites subjected to combined longitudinal, transverse normal, and longitudinal shear loads are calculated. The composite is composed of filaments arranged in ...
Numerical analysis of multigroup neutron flux in a bare fast reactor
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-06)
This study consists of the development of a computer program to numerically solve the space and energy dependent multigroup neutron diffusion equations in a bare homogeneous fast reactor core or reactor material ...
