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 ...
An experimental and analytical investigation of the effect of tray liquid on the vibration behavior of bubble towers
Study of field observations indicates that tray liquid affects the vibration behavior of a bubble tower as would a tuned dynamic vibration absorber. In this thesis an analytical investigation and experimental model studies ...
An investigation of the reaction between sulphur dioxide and oxygen in a fluidized catalyst bed
Date are presented on the rate or oxidation of sulfur dioxide on a platinized silicia gel catalyst in a batch fluidized bed. The variables investigated were feed composition, space velocity, and temperature. The pressure ...
On extending audio feedback loops to include electrodynamic speakers
Summary. The purpose of the investigation was to determine the applicability of extending inverse feedback techniques to electrodynamic loudspeakers by finding first, what the general limitations were, and second, how much ...
Volumetric behavior of the system carbon dioxide-nitrogen-n-heptane
The purpose of this experiment was to find the pressure-volume-temperature relationships of the ternary system of carbon dioxide-nitrogen-n-heptane. Data were taken at pressures from 500 psia to 15,000 psia and temperatures ...
Design of nozzles for partly ionized gases
An analytic expression is obtained for the speed of sound in a partly ionized gas under certain conditions. The method of characteristics is adapted to use this information for the solution of the compressible gas flow ...
