Finite Element Study of Plane Wave Acoustic Phenomena in Ducts
(Virginia Tech, 1998-04-29)
This thesis studied the finite element modeling of plane wave acoustic phenomena in ducts. The study looked into finite element factors such as shape functions, mesh refinement, and element distortion. The study concluded ...
Experimental and Analytical Examination of Golf Club Dynamics
(Virginia Tech, 1998-12-11)
To provide the average golfer with more consistent results, manufacturers have continued to improve the available equipment. This has led to larger club-heads, with larger ?sweet spots?, different shaft thickness for ...
Application of the finite element method in high-side gondola rail car design
(Virginia Tech, 1987-10-14)
<p>Finite element models of four design configurations of a proposed composite aluminum-steel high-side coal gondola rail car were developed. The designs were analyzed for compliance with the loadings set forth by the ...
Finite element analysis of composite tubes with integral ends subjected to bending loads
(Virginia Tech, 1995-04-03)
<p>An analytical investigation was perfonned to study the effect of applied bending loads on laminated composite tubes. Elasticity-based linear models were developed using finite element software to predict stresses within ...
Finite element modeling of the filament winding process using ABAQUS
(Virginia Tech, 1992)
A comprehensive stress model of the filament winding fabrication process, previously implemented in the finite element program, WACSAFE, was implemented using the ABAQUS finite element software package. This new ...
Dynamic finite element modeling and analysis of a hermetic reciprocating compressor
(Virginia Tech, 1992-01-30)
<p>Dynamic finite element modeling and analysis of a refrigeration compressor was investigated as part of a noise emission study. Natural frequencies and normal mode shapes were calculated for the major structural components ...
