Electromechanical shutter mechanism
An electromechanical shutter mechanism capable of achieving shutter speeds up to 50 m/sec was designed, constructed and tested. An exploding wire was used to generate a cylindrically imploding blast wave. The input energy ...
Numerical experiments on quadratically convergent algorithms for function minimization
The nine quadratically convergent algorithms for function minimization appearing in Ref. 1 are tested through numerical examples. Both a quadratic function and a nonquadratic function are investigated. For the quadratic ...
An experimental analysis of the transport of drilled particles in an annulus
Laboratory tests were carried out to study the removal of drilled particles in a well borehole simulated annulus. The main objectives of these tests were to determine the effect of varying: (1) the particle size and particle ...
Slip line studies in deformed ordered and disordered Cu3Au single crystals
A detailed study of the slip lines in deformed ordered and disordered Cu3Au single crystals has been carried out. The slip lines have been observed via optical metallography and by the two-step replica technique and ...
Performance of a fluid-heated porous plate sublimator
The performance of a porous plate sublimator with uniform heater plate temperature has been analyzed and tested in a previous investigation. A method of applying this analysis to a fluid heated sublimator is presented. ...
