The effect of solidity on the pre- and post-stall flow in a linear compressor cascade
(Virginia Tech, 1988-05-02)
<p>An experimental investigation of the performance characteristics of a solid wall linear compressor cascade was conducted. The purpose of the experiments was to determine the effects of the blade row configuration ...
A planar comparison of actuators for vibration control of flexible structures
(Virginia Tech, 1988-05-12)
The effect of molecular weight on the behavior of polystyrene coated steel disks under fretting conditions
(Virginia Tech, 1988-12-09)
Thin polymeric coatings have been applied to metal surfaces to prevent and/or prolong the onset of fretting corrosion, but the properties that make a polymeric coating effective and the means by which a coating fails are ...
A microcomputer based Energy Monitoring and Reporting System for Virginia state facilities
(Virginia Tech, 1988-04-29)
Analysis of tilting-pad oil seals for high pressure centrifugal compressors
(Virginia Tech, 1988-12-05)
<p>Oil ring seals are one major source of instability in high pressure centrifugal compressors. This thesis presents a method for analysis of an improved seal concept that has been used in very high pressure designs (900 ...
Viscous solutions for the Navier Stokes equations using an upwind finite volume technique
(Virginia Tech, 1988-05-05)
The process of enhancing an upwind finite volume, two-dimensional, thin layer Navier Stokes solver to achieve complete Navier Stokes solutions is described. The shear stress and heat flux contributions are identified and ...
Development of a [i.e. an] engineering design procedure for a complex revolute joint
(Virginia Tech, 1988-12-15)
<p>Design procedures are developed that combine both the finite element method and the transfer matrix method in design. These procedures were drawn up as a result of the analysis of a large continuous mining machine ...
Interactive calculation of cross-sectional areas for aircraft design and analysis
(Virginia Tech, 1988-08-05)
</p> <p>Discussed is the development of two computer programs for the calculation of cross-sectional areas for existing aircraft and aircraft concepts. The first program allows the user to display aircraft described in ...
Analysis of parametric model signal processing techniques for signature analysis
(Virginia Tech, 1988)
Total velocity vector measurements in an axial-flow compressor using a 3-component Laser Doppler Anenometer
(Virginia Tech, 1988-02-15)
