Experimental Investigation Of The Interaction Of An Oblique Shock Wave With A Turbulent Boundary Layer, Amado Arthur Trujillo Jun 1962

Experimental Investigation Of The Interaction Of An Oblique Shock Wave With A Turbulent Boundary Layer, Amado Arthur Trujillo

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The purpose of the investigation was to accurately describe the interaction of a shock wave and a turbulent boundary layer based upon the measurement and subsequent analysis of both static and impact pressure throughout the interaction region.


A Study Of Temperature Measurement Precision In Debye-Scherrer Specimens During High Temperature X-Ray Diffraction Measurement Of Thermal Expansion, Roy Glenn Merryman Jun 1962

A Study Of Temperature Measurement Precision In Debye-Scherrer Specimens During High Temperature X-Ray Diffraction Measurement Of Thermal Expansion, Roy Glenn Merryman

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The literature cited covers a comprehensive survey on temperature measurement methods in thermal expansion determination utilizing X-ray diffraction from 1921 through 1961 and a compilation of all published data on the thermal expansion of gold from 1916 through 1960 and magnesium oxide from 1906 through 1961. References for comparison of the MgO results with those of the Bureau of Mines Interlaboratory Program of Thermal Expansion Measurements on MgO are also presented. The literature on temperature measurement was limited to those articles featuring camera design or temperature conditions, since to examine publications on all phases of thermal expansion was found to ...


Determination Of Thermal Stresses At Interior Points, Siegfried Thunborg Jr. Jun 1962

Determination Of Thermal Stresses At Interior Points, Siegfried Thunborg Jr.

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

Existing theory was used to determine the thermal stresses and strains throughout a long thick walled cylinder under equilibrium thermal conditions when the thermal gra­dient through the wall is dependent on radial position only.

A thick walled cylindrical model, made of a plastic material, was constructed and strain gages were imbedded in and mounted on the cylinder to determine strains at interior and surface locations. The cylinder was subjected to equi­librium and transient thermal conditions and thermal strains were measured. In the equilibrium thermal condition the measured strains were compared with those predicted by theory.

The results show ...


Radial Dislocations In Plane Stress., William J. Sieger May 1962

Radial Dislocations In Plane Stress., William J. Sieger

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The elastic dislocation theory was used to obtain stress potentials for the dual dislocation problem. These solutions give the stress field for an infinite plane region containing a centrally located circular hole with two radial dislocations originating from opposite sides of the hole and extending into the region along a line perpendicular to the axis of applied load. Solutions were obtained for both the case of a linear dislocation relation along the cuts and for a parabolic relation.


Plastic Models For The Study Of Thermal Stresses, Carl W. Theisen Mar 1962

Plastic Models For The Study Of Thermal Stresses, Carl W. Theisen

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The purpose of this thesis was to determine and evaluate an experimental method for accurately measuring thermal stresses in structural shapes subjected to large transient thermal gradients, without introducing the problems of high temperature instrumentation, or expensive and elaborate test facilities. Most experimental methods consist of mounting high temperature strain gages on the prototype or model of the metal structure to be evaluated, thermal shocking the structure and then recording the accompanying strains. This method is used quite extensively in the aircraft field, and in others, where the effects of thermal stresses must be considered. However, problems are encountered when ...


The Development Of A Static Pressure Probe For The Interaction Region Of Shock Waves And Boundary Layers, John Rode Mar 1962

The Development Of A Static Pressure Probe For The Interaction Region Of Shock Waves And Boundary Layers, John Rode

Mechanical Engineering ETDs

The purpose of this investigation was to develop a static pressure probe for measuring static pressures in the region of interaction of a shock wave and a boundary layer. Requirements of such a probe are: small size to permit measurement of pressure variations within the thin boundary layer, pressure coefficient close to unity to permit precise static pressure measurements in regions of unknown and varying velocity and proper response to large pressure gradients.
