Phase Dynamics Of Locset Control Methodology, Brendan Neschke May 2015

Phase Dynamics Of Locset Control Methodology, Brendan Neschke

Masters Theses

Single-mode fiber amplifiers produce diffraction-limited beams very efficiently. Maximum beam intensity requires that an array of these amplifiers have their beams coherently combined at the target. Optical path differences and noise adversely affect beam quality. An existing closed loop phase control methodology, called the locking of optical coherence by single-detector electronic-frequency tagging (LOCSET), corrects phase errors in real time by electronically detecting path length differences and sending signals to lithium niobate phase adjusters. Broadening the line-width using “jitter” of the input signal can increase the output power of an individual amplifier by suppressing nonlinearity. The system dynamics of LOCSET are ...

Discontinuous Element Insertion Algorithm, Timothy James Truster Jan 2015

Discontinuous Element Insertion Algorithm, Timothy James Truster

Faculty Publications and Other Works -- Civil & Environmental Engineering

An algorithm is presented for inserting zero-thickness interface elements, termed herein as “couplers”, into continuous finite element meshes in two and three dimensions. Insertion is governed solely by the mesh topology and is specified according to regions or subdomains within the overall analysis domain, a geometrically intuitive means to designate the coupler locations. The algorithm is self-contained and requires only nodal coordinates and element connectivity as input. A wide class of volume elements and interface couplers are treated within the framework. Since the algorithm is topologically-based, interfaces of arbitrary complexity are naturally accommodated. Separate treatment is given to inserting couplers ...


Phase Field Approach For Multiphase Phase Transformations, Twinning, And Variant-Variant Transformations In Martensite, Arunabha Mohan Roy Jan 2015

Phase Field Approach For Multiphase Phase Transformations, Twinning, And Variant-Variant Transformations In Martensite, Arunabha Mohan Roy

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

New advanced phase field model of transformations between martensitic variants and multiple twinning within martensitic variants is developed for large strains and lattice rotations. It resolves numerous existing problems. The model, which involves just one order parameter for the description of each variant-variant transformation and multiple twinnings within each martensitic variant, provides a well-controlled description of variant-variant transformations and multiple twinning, including expressions for interface tension which are consistent with the sharp interface limit. The finite element approach is developed and applied to the solution of a number of examples of twinning and combined austenite-martensite and martensite-martensite phase transformations (PTs ...
