Development of a device for the incorporation of multiple scanivalves into a computer-controlled data system.
A controller (designated HG-78K) was built to permit manual and computer-directed acquisition of pneumatic data from multiple Scanivalves. The controller incorporated a low cost digital electronic circuit which, was ...
Investigation of pipe flow instability and results for wave number zero
Past research by Harrison and Johnston on the stability of pipe flow yielded only tenuous results owing to errors in setup of the problem and in formulation of the complex axis boundary conditions. Recent advances in ...
The application of a laser Doppler velocimetry system to flow velocity measurements in a transonic compressor.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-12)
A laser doppler velocimeter (LDV) system was developed and utilized to measure the flow velocities in the axial and tangential directions behind the rotors of a single stage transonic compressor. The backscatter mode ...

(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-09)
This paper describes the expansion and modification of an existing data acquisition system to effect extensive improvements in speed and flexibility. A microprocessor, flexible disk drive, analog to digital converter, ...
The development and implementation of algorithms for an A-7E performance calculator.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-09)
In this thesis, the algorithms for an A-7E aircraft performance calculator were developed and then implemented on three small data processors of different programming levels and storage capabilities . The utility of ...
An experimental investigation of the dual chamber rocket motor
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-06)
An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility and practicality of the dual rocket motor concept. Cold flow studies were performed with the aid of a ground-test simulator which incorporated a ...
Application of light extinction measurements to the study of combustion ins solid fuel ramjets
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-06)
An experimental investigation of the combustion behavior in solid fuel ramjets was conducted. Light extinction measurements were employed to determine the effects of fuel composition and bypass ratio on the combustion ...
Design and construction of a flight monitor and data recorder.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-12)
The design and preliminary testing of a microcomputer based flight monitor and data recorder, utilizing magnetic bubble memory, is reported. Component selection, software design and magnetic bubble storage system construction ...
An investigation of methods for determining notch root stress from far field strain in notched flat plates.
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-09)
Notched flat plate specimens have been tested to examine Neuber's equation and other relations with respect to their application in the determination of stresses in the plastic range at the notch root when the far field ...
Unsteady surface pressure and near-wake hot-wire measurements of a circulation control airfoil.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-09)
The large lift coefficient changes attainable with Circulation Control Airfoils through small changes in boundary layer blowing suggest rotary wing cyclic control can be obtained through modulation of the blowing. ...
