A computer simulation of a naval boiler
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-09)
A non-linear computer model of a U.S. Navy D-type boiler was developed using lumped parameters. the program was coded in IBM CSMP-III simulation language. A companion routine was also coded to permit the user to implement ...
Stress analysis of ceramic gas turbine blades by the finite element method. Part I.
The search for more efficient gas turbine engines has led to the proposal for the replacement of metal high temperature components with ceramic components . Essential to this effort is the numerical analysis of proposed ...
Stress concentration factors for circular notches
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1974-06)
Existing finite element programs PLISOP and PLIMEG are modified and adapted to the successful determination of stress concentration factors for thin elastic bars containing V-shaped round bottom notches and subjected ...
