Geometric programming : theory and application by Richard James Duffin( Book )

20 editions published between 1967 and 1972 in 3 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a brief summary of progress by the authors and their associates in their research on the reduction and decomposition of large generalized geometric programming problems and their application for the period 1 March 1974 through 28 February 1975. The problems under study concern (1) the optimal design and operation of hydraulic pipelines, transportation networks, and mechanical and electrical devices, (2) the optimal location of facilities, (3) the analysis and optimal design of structures, and (4) certain aspects of chemical equilibrium, regression analysis, and optimal control. To effectively and efficiently obtain solutions to these problems when stated in geometric programming formulations, methods that ameliorate the complexity of the total system are being developed. These methods center around the ideas of 'decomposing' the total system into smaller subsystems and 'reducing' the dimensionality of the overall system. This summary provides an outline of the most recent results in this research project and provides a listing of publications in which additional detail on the research can be obtained

MECHANISM OF ARMOR PENETRATION( Book )

3 editions published between 1943 and 1944 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To study the forces which act upon projectiles during armor penetration. Friction was found to have a negligible effect during armor penetration. The shearing stresses associated with friction may be calculated quite accurately. It has ben found that these a re less than 5,000 psi except during the first instant of contact. An estimate has been made of the forces which arise from the inertial resistanc eof the plate mat erial. these forces are proportional to the square of the projectile velocity, and are greater the blunter the ogive. These inertial forces may prevent projectiles from penetrating plate in a velocity range above the ballistic limit
Low Velocity Inelastic Collisions by Clarence Zener( )

1 edition published in 1931 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The probability that a low velocity collision be inelastic is shown to depend in a relatively simple manner upon three factors: the magnitude of the change in total internal energy, ΔE; the matrix element, with respect to the initial and final states, of the interaction energy at the closest distance of approach, W12; and the "time of collision," τ, a function of the relative velocity and of the sharpness of the collision. An approximation to this probability is P=[2πW12/h τ (1+ε1βε2)e-ε3β]2 where β=2πτΔE/h and ε1, ε2, ε3 are nearly unity, their precise values depending upon the characteristics of the particular collision

Armor Plate Ballistic Testing( Book )

1 edition published in 1944 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The fundamentals are presented for a rational system of armor plate ballistic testing. The desirable properties of armor are first discussed. These are (1) high resistance to penetration, (2) freedom from back spalls, (3) freedom from cracking (shock failure). The theory of the ballistic methods by means of which these properties may be tested is then presented, and the relation of these methods to the non-ballistic methods is discussed. Finally, a criticism is given of the present ballistic specifications which are employed to test for these properties. It is found that the ballistic acceptance test could be improved by certain changes. These changes are for Resistance to Penetration Test, Resistance to Back Spall Test, and Resistance to Shock Failure
