A Study Of The Effects Of Pressure-Induced Viscosity Changes On The Fluid Flow Characteristics In A Circular Tube, Robert Charles Weber Jan 1970

A Study Of The Effects Of Pressure-Induced Viscosity Changes On The Fluid Flow Characteristics In A Circular Tube, Robert Charles Weber

Masters Theses

"A method of determining the response of fluids under high pressure to quick-release into the atmosphere is presented in this report. The analytical efforts have been formulated into two parts, a closed-form solution and a numerical analysis. By assuming constant viscosity of the fluid a closed-form solution was obtained. The assumption of constant viscosity was found to be acceptable for the test fluids up to an initial pressure of approximately 10,000 psi. A numerical analysis became necessary for initial pressures over 10,000 psi, where the variable viscosity of the fluid had to be considered. The experimental work was ...


Failure Of Lined And Unlined Small-Scale Cavities In Rock-Like Materials, Seung-Ki Yang Jan 1970

Failure Of Lined And Unlined Small-Scale Cavities In Rock-Like Materials, Seung-Ki Yang

Masters Theses

"The strain conditions around statically loaded circular openings in rock-like materials and corresponding cavity-wall displacements were determined experimentally with resistance strain gages. The models were fabricated with lined and unlined openings simulating underground tunnels. Tests were performed with models of two different materials in plane stress and plane strain. Rock-like materials were designed and the strain gages were embedded at selected points within each model. The models often failed by tensile splitting through the opening early in the loading cycle causing the strains at certain points to deviate considerably from the theoretical values. Tangential strains on the vertical axis were ...


The Design, Construction And Experimental Verification Of A Split Hopkinson Bar, Woosoon Bai Jan 1970

The Design, Construction And Experimental Verification Of A Split Hopkinson Bar, Woosoon Bai

Masters Theses

"This thesis presents the design considerations for a dynamic loading device utilizing a projectile fired from a tube. Also included is a preliminary investigation of the stress-strain relation, under dynamic loading with the device, for a plaster known as Hydrostone. Design of the unit is based on the split Hopkinson pressure bar originally developed by Kolsky and on a similar unit in use at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, Livermore, California. The strain pulses along the pressure bars are sensed by resistance wire strain gages and displayed on an oscilloscope. The oscilloscope traces are photographed and manually digitized for insertion into ...
