Numerical parametric study of Hydrodynamic Ram
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-08); NPS-MAE-16-002
considered a projectile penetrating a box which contains water either partially or fully. A standard model was developed and validated against the experimental data. Then, each parameter was varied individually to determine ...
Impact analysis of low velocity to composite box containing water
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-07); NPS-MAE-16-001
A series of experimental studies were conducted for low velocity impact on a composite box containing water in order to study the Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI). Finally, a computational study was conducted to supplement ...
Satellite motion around an oblate planet: a perturbation solution for all orbital parameters
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-05-06); NPS-MA-93-O18
The search for a universal solution of the equations of motion for a satellite orbiting an oblate planet is a subject that has merited gre.at interest because of its theoretical and practical implications. Here, a complete ...
Effects of Fluid-Structure Interaction on Dynamic Responses of Composite Structures: Experimental and Numerical Studies
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-08-01); NPS-MAE-13-002
The technical objectives of the study were to understand and predict the effects of fluid-structure interaction on the dynamic responses and failures of polymer composite structures used for naval applications. More ...
Oscillations of a multi-string pendulum
(Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-09-14); NPS-MAE-07-002
The mathematical pendulum is one of the most widely studied problems in engineering physics. This is, however, primarily limited to the classical pendulum with a single bar and mass configuration. Extensions to this ...
Naval Postgraduate School Center for Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Research / 2003 Annual Report
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 2004-04-15); NPS-MAE-04-002
This report presents a summary of the work completed in 2003 at the NPS Center for Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Research and provides a preview of future work planned for 2004.
Analytical Model for Single-Side Patch Design of Composite Repair
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 2013); NPS-MAE-13-001
A study was undertaken to develop an analytical model that can be used for patch designs of cracked plates using the single-side composite patch. The model helps to select a patch material (i.e., elastic modulus of the ...
Damage detection in composite interfaces through carbon nanotube reinforcement
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010); NPS-MAE-10-003
Use of carbon nanotubes along composite interfaces was studied to both improve fracture strength and monitor interfacial damage progression. Both carbon fiber and E-glass fiber composites were manufactured with vinyl ester ...
Direct manufacturing of CubeSat using 3-D digital printer and determination of its mechanical properties
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010); NPS-MAE-10-006
The research and analysis in the structural optimization of Panel Line Modules detailed in this report has been undertaken by the Naval Postgraduate School in cooperation with the Northrop Grumman (Shipbuilding) Corporation. ...
A HEL testbed for high accuracy beam pointing and control
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009); NPS-MAE-09-001
High energy laser (HEL) weapons are some of most challenging military applications in the future battle fields since the speed of light delivery enables the war fighter to engage very distant targets immediately. The issues ...
