Demonstration of lightweight engineering solutions for a low-cost safe explosive ordnance destruct tool
(Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-12)
The continued development of a low-cost and safe method for neutralizing explosive threats is reported. The concept depends on the use of pure nitromethane in a totally encased lightweight plastic shaped charge, and the ...
Analysis of required supporting systems for the Supercritical CO2 power conversion system
(Cambridge Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007-09)
Recently, attention has been drawn to the viability of using S-CO(2) as a working fluid in modern reactor designs. Near the critical point, CO2 has a rapid rise in density allowing a significant reduction in the compressor ...
A conceptual framework for the U.S. Army tactical wheeled vehicle optimization model
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-06)
This thesis addresses the problem of optimizing the U.S. Army's Light Tactical Wheeled Vehicle (LTWV) fleet over the next 15 years. To achieve these ends we created a multiple objective decision analysis (MODA) model which ...
Statistics of amplitude and fluid velocity of large and rare waves in the ocean
The understanding of large and rare waves in the ocean is becoming more important as these rare events are turning into more common observances. In order to design a marine structure or vehicle to withstand such a potentially ...
