The Design, Construction, And Operation Of A Guarded Hot Box, Don Williams Jr. May 1950

The Design, Construction, And Operation Of A Guarded Hot Box, Don Williams Jr.

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The guarded hot box is a device for measuring the coefficient of heat transfer through typical wall sections, and, with some modifications, through insulations. In order to determine this coefficient, it is necessary to know the temperature difference across the wall and the quantity of heat flowing through a given area of the test sample when thermal equilibrium has been reached.


A Study Of A Small Hydrofoil Boat With Airplane Type Controls, Allyn B. Hazard May 1950

A Study Of A Small Hydrofoil Boat With Airplane Type Controls, Allyn B. Hazard

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The primary purpose of this study was to determine if the application of airplane type controls to the hydrofoil boat would produce a stable craft that would be safe to operate. The secondary purpose of this study was to determine if a human operator could respond to changes in the boat's attitude brought on by wave action or other factors in time to keep the craft running in a desirable operating condition. Finally, the commercial possibilities were to be determined by the performance of the prototype.
