Hypersonic power-law bodies of maximum lift-to-drag ratio
The problem of maximizing the lift-to-drag ratio of a slender, flat-top hypersonic body is investigated under the assumptions that the pressure distribution is Newtonian and the skin-friction coefficient is constant. Direct ...
An optimized model of the human cochlea
In this thesis, an electrical analogue of the human cochlea was constructed from the equations of cochlear motion and optimized to produce a response which agreed with the experimental response measured from the human ...
Condensation of a vapor in the presence of a non-condensing gas in turbulent flow
Rates of condensation of water vapor in the presence of air were determined in turbulent flow in a vertical tube. Wide ranges of vapor-gas composition and velocity were covered in the study. A satisfactory correlation ...
