Optical model analysis of scattering of 14 Mev neutrons by Glen Culler ( Book )
3 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Preliminary results for the scattering of 14 Mev neutrons using exact phase-shift calculations are presented. The model used consists of step-well potentials both with and without spin-orbit interactions.
CAPACITOR PLATE SHAPE PROBLEM ( Book )
1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A capacitor is to be constructed consisting of a stack of parallel plates. The shape of the individual plates is determined so that the potential gradient will be constant along the surface of the plates.
UNIVERSAL GRAVITY TURN CURVES ( Book )
1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The powered flight trajectories of long range missiles, satellites, etc., may involve an 'atmospheric' portion, in which aerodynamic forces and moments are of importance, and a 'post-atmospheric' section, in which these effects are negligible. During this latter part of the flight, the trajectory to be followed is quite simple. A trajectory which can be used for this part is the 'gravity turn' sometimes referred to as a 'zero angle of attack' or 'no-lift' trajectory. It consists in keeping the thrust always parallel to velocity, starting from some non-zero, non-vertical, initial velocity, v sub 0. This report describes a method which has been used to obtain such universal solutions for gravity turns which begin very shortly after the launching time. The physical problem is presented, and an analytical solution for the case of constant thrust-weight ratio is given. A method of numerical solution for the case of constant thrust and mass flow rate is discussed and universal curves for this problem are presented.
