Bottom and surface proximity effects on the added mass of Rankine ovoids.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-12)
The free-surface and bottom-proximity effects on the added mass of Rankine ovoids of various length-to-diameter ratios were experimentally investigated by vertically oscillating the ovoids normal to their major axis. The ...
An automatic mesh generator using two and three-dimensional isoparametric finite elements.
The objective of the project described in this report was to develop computer systems which would generate the element connectivity, and nodal point co-ordinates for two and three-dimensional finite element programs ...
Unidirectional periodic flow about circular cylinders.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973)
The instantaneous force acting on a circular cylinder immersed in a unidirectional periodic flow characterized by U = V + VA sin 2π ft was investigated. The total force was divided into three components consisting of ...
