An evaluation of the fixed point method of vibration analysis for a particular system with initial damping
The object of this thesis is to investigate the validity of a popular approximate procedure which is used to select the optimum deeming for a Given mechanical system. Since this cannot be done in general, a particular ...
An investigation of the mechanism underlying delayed electron emission
Electron emission from aluminum was observed during isochronal annealing after deformation at a low temperature, and during isothermal annealing after quenching from a high temperature. The results were compared with theory. ...
A Raster scan visibility algorithm for parametric surfaces
A raster scan visibility algorithm is presented for contouring on parametric surfaces. The algorithm entails three-dimensional aspects of coloring, shading, and visibility of points. The approach uses parametric interpolation ...
Numerical experiments on transformation techniques for minimax problems of optimal control
A transformation technique is employed in order to convert mini max problems of optimal control into the Mayer-Bolza problem of the calculus of variations. The transformation requires the proper augmentation of the state ...
