Southern Hemisphere Application of the Systematic Approach to Tropical Cyclone Track Forecasting. Part I: Environmental Structure Characteristics
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-MR-98-001
The environment structure conceptual models of the Systematic Approach to Tropical Cyclone Track Forecasting technique of Carr and Elsberry are applied to all Southern Hemisphere tropical cyclones during January 1994 - ...
Removal of the assumption of cellular targets in computing damage aggregation to an area target from a Salvo of N Weapons
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-MA-98-001
In the computation of damage aggregation to an area target from a salvo of N weapons, the assumption of a cellular target (i.e., a target composed entirely of cells) is often made. This assumption together with the ...
An information security education initiative for engineering and computer science
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-CS-97-003
This paper puts forward a case for an educational initiative in information security at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Its focus is on the need for such education, the desired educational outcomes, and how ...
Condensed and Updated Version of the Systematic Approach Meteorological Knowledge Base Western North Pacific
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-MR-98-002
The meteorological knowledge base for the Systematic and Integrated Approach to Tropical Cydone Track Forecasting proposed by Carr and Elsberry has evolved as additional research has been completed. This Systematic Approach ...
On the Properties of Multiple-Valued Functions that are Symmetric in Both Variable Values and Labels
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-EC-97-015
Functions that are symmetric in both variable labels and variable values are important for use as benchmarks. We present the properties of such functions, showing that they are isomorphic to partitions on r (the number ...
Computer Modeling Techniques for Array Antennas on Complex Structures
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-EC-97-016
This report discusses the suitability of using several existing computational electromagnetics (CEM) codes for modeling antennas on complex structures. Complex structures are those with curved surfaces, edges, protrusions, ...
Pacific Grove Multi-casualty Incident Drill
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-11-22); NPS-IJWA-98-003. Vol. 1
Vol. 1 in a Series Concerning Local Repsonse to Terrorism
Evaluation of the mechanical proterties of countermine boots
(NAval Postgraduate School, 1997-11-15); NPS-ME-97-007
The goal of this project was to test the mechanical properties of countermine boots and overboots which are currently available for U.S. soldiers. The soles of both boots were made of almost the same materials and the ...
Janus version 6.0 tutorial
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-09-30); NPS-MA-97-007
A self-paced tutorial is presented using the Janus (version 6.0) high resolution combat model. Utilizing a scenario incorporating air, sea and land forces in a coordinated amphibious landing, the student is introduced ...
Development of a shell element with pressure variation through the thickness
(Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-09-30); NPS-ME-97-006
A shell formulation was developed from a three-dimensional solid. The shell element is an isoparametric element, and has four corner nodes at which there are three displacement and three rotations, independently. Therefore, ...
