3-dimensional stress analysis of superheater headers
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-12)
Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) initiated an investigation of the Tarawa Class (LHA-1) superheater headers due to the reoccurance of numerous crack and leaks in the tube to header attachment welds. A dimensional solid ...
Parametric study of the aerothermodynamics of a jet engine test facility
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989)
A three-dimensional numerical analysis of the Jet Engine Hush House located at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida was developed using the PHOENICS computer code. The PHOENICS code was used to determine the steady state ...
Aerothermodynamic analysis of a Coanda/Refraction jet engine test facility
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1988-12)
A computer model of the Coanda Refraction Jet Engine Test Cell facility was developed using the PHOENICS computer code. The PIIOENICS code was utilized to determine the steady state aerothermal characteristics of the ...
2-dimensional axisymmetric and 3-dimensional finite element stress analysis of the LHA-1 class superheater header/
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1988-03)
ADINA, a finite element program for automatic dynamic incremental nonlinear analysis, is used to conduct a stress analysis of the Tarawa class (LHA-1) superheater header. This investigation is sponsored by the Naval Sea ...
Heat transfer modeling of jet vane Thrust Vector Control (TVC) Systems
The research presented herein, analyzes two models of a jetvane Thrust Vector Control (TVC) System. Computational modeling was accomplished using the latest version of the PHOENICS computer code, designated PHOENICS-84. ...
A new method for boundary value problems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985-03)
Large matrix storage constitutes a limitation on the applicability of most numerical techniques including the Finite Element Method, when very accurate results are required. This is particularly true when dealing with ...
Effects of temperature on the tensile strength and elastic modulus of composite material.
(Monterey, California, Naval Postgraduate School, 1985)
An experimental investigation was made to determine the ultimate tensile strength and elastic modulus of HMF 330/34 woven style graphite epoxy exposed to elevated temperatures: (16 C, 50 C, 80 C, 110 C, 140 C, and 170 C). ...
Two-D heat transfer through porous media with heat generation.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1984-06)
This investigation develops an axisymmetric heat transfer-combustion model of a porous medium within a circular cylinder. System flow is governed by Darcy's law. Carbon and air properties are treated as variables of ...
