Investigation of gravitational effects on the performance of variable conductance heat pipe.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-12)
A variable conductance heat pipe with a length to diameter ratio of 96 to 1 was designed and constructed. The performance characteristics of both the conventional and gas loaded variable conductance modes of operation ...
Experimental investigation of the heat transfer characteristics of a radio frequency surgical probe
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-03)
Liquid crystals, a material that exhibits brilliant changes in color over narrow temperature bands, have been successfully used to study the temperature field produced by spherical and cylindrical radio frequency surgical ...
Freeze-drying and rehydration.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973)
Experimental results using roast turkey meat were obtained substantiating the uniformly retreating ice front model used in freeze-drying. A one-dimensional model for rehydration was developed, based on flow in capillary ...
