The effects of an embedded vortex on a film cooled turbulent boundary layer.
This study was designed to model some of the secondary flow effects on endwalls, blades, and combustion chambers of gas turbine engines. Measurements were made in a turbulent boundary layer developing over a flat plate, ...
Stability of the vortex motion in oscillating flow.
Previous experimental investigations have shown that the characteristics of flow about a circular cylinder immersed in a time-dependent flow exhibit cycle-to-cycle variations. These variations have been attributed to the ...
Computer simulation and experimental validation of a dynamic model (equivalent rigid link system)--on a single-link flexible manipulator.
Flexibility effects on robot manipulator design and control are typically ignored which is justified when large, bulky robotic mechanisms are moved at slow speeds However, when increased speed and improved accuracy ...
Strain dependent damping characteristics of a high damping manganese-copper alloy
(U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1986)
This paper presents the studies on measurement techniques developed for the determination of strain-dependent damping characteristics of materials in an air environment. The material is a high damping manganese-copper ...
