A two dimensional photoelastic study of the load distribution among the roller bearings in a rock bit
The photoelastic technique was employed to investigate the adverse affect on the load distribution among the roller bearings in a rock bit cutter as a result of the relatively large radial clearance in the bearings. A ...
Estimation of the heat of solution in hydrogen sulfide-monoethanolamine-water system
An hypothetical chemical reaction between hydrogen sulfide and monoethanolamine is set up to permit thermodynamic calculations of the partial heats of solution of hydrogen sulfide in aqueous monoethanolamine solutions. The ...
Experimental determination of the air flow through the individual cylinders of an internal combustion engine
The overheating of certain cylinders of multicylinder engines is of vital import to those concerned with large power installations. Such overheating results in a loss of power from the engine. Therefore, engines must be ...
A study of the quasi-frictional forces resulting on serrated clamping elements
It is intuitive that a clamping element will grip better if the surface is provided with teeth which penetrate Into the surface of the clamped object. This paper is concerned with the problem of determining a quantitative ...
Engineering properties of Houston subsoils
Presented in this thesis is a summary of Houston subsoils data as obtained from geological considerations and a substantial portion of the available records of test borings and soils tests. From this summary, the following ...
An investigation of the oxidation of ferrous sulfide by fluosolid technique
Data are presented on the rate of sulfur removal from a fluidized ferrous sulfide bed by the oxidation of the ferrous sulfide. The variables investigated were feed gas composition, temperature, and fluidizing gas velocity. ...
