Ballistic limit equation for hypervelocity impact on composite-orthotropic materials
Two new ballistic limit equations for hypervelocity impact on homogeneous and composite-orthotropic materials have been developed for a velocity range above 6 km/s. The methodology used to develop the ballistic limit ...
A wavelet-based numerical scheme for stochastic mechanics
Uncertainty is an inherent part of many physical systems. This is often ignored to simplify mathematical models thereby leading to a deterministic treatment of the system. Incorporation of the uncertainty into the model, ...
Simulation of nonlinear performance of a top fuel dragster race car
In order to analyze and increase the performance of a top fuel dragster, a dynamic model of the car was developed in this thesis. The drag racing car is moving mainly in a rectilinear/one dimensional mode, nevertheless, a ...
