One-Dimensional Compressible Flow Analysis : Isentropic And Normal Shock, Su-Bo Wong May 1983

One-Dimensional Compressible Flow Analysis : Isentropic And Normal Shock, Su-Bo Wong

Theses

A computer program to compute and analyse one-dimensional isentropic compressible flow through variable cross-sectional area with or without a normal shock is developed. The program is written in the "FORTRAN LANGUAGE".

In this work, the area change is the predominant cause of change of flow condition. One of the advantage of this program is set on general uses for isentropic flow. In common practice, the values of the isentropic flow property ratios were tabulated or graphically presented as function of the Mach number with a specified specific heat ratio, K (normally K=1.40 was presented). With todays technology, the ...


Finite Element Analysis Of The Femoral Head, Ghandikota Ramamurthy May 1983

Finite Element Analysis Of The Femoral Head, Ghandikota Ramamurthy

Theses

Femoral component loosening and Prosthetic stem fractures have renewed interest in conservative alternatives to conventional total hip replacements. One such alternative is the concept of surface replacement. The objective in this study is a finite element analysis of a femoral surface replacement cup with Particular attention given to the interfacial stresses. An axisymmetric model with a grid of two-dimensional isoparametric elements is generated. This study utilizes an adaptive model so as to include the effect of bone remodeling in response to stress. The stiffness is considered to be linearly proportional to the stress in the femoral head and neck. Isotropic ...


Computer Simulation Of Cavity Filling During Injection Molding Process, Sumit Banerjee May 1983

Computer Simulation Of Cavity Filling During Injection Molding Process, Sumit Banerjee

Theses

A numerical technique is proposed for the simulation of cavity filling process during injection molding of glass-bead filled polypropylene. The mold cavity is of cylindrical shape. Marker And Cell (MAC) method is utilized for solving the transient flow phenomena, after a mathematical simulation of the flow model is carried out by using the relevant continuity and-momentum equations governing the system. The complexity of the equations involved, results in the simplifying assumption of incompressible and isothermal flow process. A computer program is written on the basis of finite-difference equations developed during the application of MAC method under the prevailing conditions. The ...
