The effect of vibrations on ordering in a copper-gold alloy
Experiments were performed to determine the effects of mechanical vibrations on ordering in CuAu. The effects of 5, 10 and 15 kc vibrations were investigated over a range of ordering temperatures of 280 to 360°C. A retarding ...
Similarity solutions for density currents
In this thesis, a steady-state hydrodynamic analysis of density currents, or flows of silt-laden sea water adjacent to the bottom of the ocean, is presented. The density current is considered to be analogous to the turbulent ...
An investigation of certain problems in the use of sample cores in analog simulation of magnetic amplifier circuits
In order to establish the conversion factors between an actual circuit and its computer simulation, the simple half wave magnetic amplifier-circuit was used. The Computer simulation of this circuit requires three operational ...
A study of foams
The effect of lattice vacancies on the elastic modulus
The effect of quenched-in vacancies upon the elastic modulus of aluminum ma investigated. Equipment for dynamically measuring the change in elastic modulus was developed for the purpose. It was demonstrated that the presence ...
Electron emission from aluminum as a result of plastic strain
Aluminum was strained in tension under a Geiger counter. Electron emission associated with plastic deformation and subsequent delayed emission was observed. The specimens were illuminated during both the growth and decay ...
The thermal conductivity of light hydrocarbon gases and gas mixtures at atmospheric pressure
Thermal conductivity data have been determined for methane, propane, n-butane, n-pentane and four methane-propane mixtures at atmospheric pressure and in the temperature range 50C to 150C. Measurements were made with a ...
