High fidelity numerical study of nonlinear impact wave propagation: methods, analysis, and applications
Various systems and structures are subjected to impact loading in industrial and military applications. Many of these impact loads have very high magnitudes and very short durations, resulting in high frequency content. Under some conditions, the response to these loading conditions can be significantly influenced by nonlinearities. The goal of this ...
Chemistry of novel nanoscale carbon materials: Nanodiamond and carbon nano-onions
Nanoscience is the area of science concerning materials on the level of nanometer scale. Currently much of the discussion of nanoscience is focused on carbon-based nanostructures. Tremendous studies have been carried out on fullerenes and carbon nanotubes in the past a couple of decade due to their unique chemical and physical properties. This thesis ...
A study of the Meissner effect in type I superconductors
This report includes an analysis of the flux penetration and expulsion from a normal conducting cylinder and then an account of the observed results of a superconducting ellipsoid. The penetration and expulsion of magnetic flux during the normal to superconducting transition was governed principally by the eddy current shielding. There was au initial ...
