An investigation into the use of data bases in computer-aided naval ship design
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1984)
A design-oriented, interactive computer system which makes possible the dynamic loading of programs at the user's request throughout the operating session has been developed. This system, which is referred to as DEX, ...
Evaluation of a highly skewed propeller for a Naval auxiliary (AO-177).
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982-06)
The cavitation performance of a seven-biaded, highly skewed nropeller for a Naval auxiliary (AO-177) is evaluated using lifting surface numerical hydrodynamic methods. An important contribution to accurate predition of ...
Marine surface condenser design using vertical tubes which are enhanced.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1981-05)
A methodology is developed for calculating the heat transfer coefficient on the surface of a vertical fluted condenser tube based upon condensate film thickness. A marine condenser sizing procedure is demonstrated using ...
Prediction and control of residual stresses and distortion in HY-130 thick pipe weldments
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1979-05)
In order to validate existing techniques for computer simulation of the welding process, an experiment is designed and carried out in which seam and girth weld are produced on a high strength steel cylinder. Fabrication ...
Compressive fatigue in glass and graphite reinforced composites
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978-06)
The characteristics of compressive fatigue failure are described for unnotched laminates, with the following rank ordering by compressive strengths determined: [0 degrees/90 degrees] Graphite Epoxy, [ 0 degrees/+ 45 degree/90 ...
A comparative analysis of naval auxiliary and merchant ship design
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978-05)
Naval auxiliary vessels carry considerably less cargo than commercial vessels and are significantly more costly to build. By comparing Naval Auxiliary vessels with commercial vessels which carry cargo of a similar nature ...
Underwater welding in the deep sea.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978-05)
A summary of underwater welding methods presently in use or under development are reviewed in order to determine which methods have possible application to deep sea use (depths greater than 1000 feet). Studies on one of ...
