  • Kirk, Colin L. (College of Aeronautics, 1967-04)
    Experimental determination of the natural frequencies of a stiffened cantilever plate reveals the simultaneous excitation of two normal modes of vibration. Comparison is made between the experimental nodal pattern and ...
  • Ryan, M. S. (Cranfield University, 1988-01)
    The aim of this thesis is to provide a design tool for the engineering analysis of the dynamics of a flexible riser system. The design tool is piovided in the form of a computer program. The two main requirements of ...
  • Wiedemann, Simon M.; Kirk, Colin L. (Cranfield University; School of Engineering, 2005-06-27)
    This paper presents a new approach for determination of vibration response of the triply articulated Space Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (SRMS) with large rigid overhanging payloads. In contrast to other researchers ...
  • Langley, R. S. (Cranfield University, 1983-02)
    This Thesis investigates the methods which are currently avail- able for the dynamic analysis of Offshore Mooring Terminals, particular regard being paid to Single Point Mooring (SPM) Terminals. Various aspects of the ...
  • Ghadimi, R. (Cranfield University, 1986-03)
    In this thesis consideration is given to a selection of nonlinear dynamic problems in the field of offshore engineering. Hydrodynamic loading on fixed horizontal and vertical tubular members and the dynamic response of ...
  • Shanks, J. M. (Cranfield University, 1985-03)
    This thesis investigates two slender body problems, namely the static and dynamic analysis of submarine pipeline spans and the dynamic analysis of marine risers. In view of structural and environmental similarities, ...
  • Gabri, B. S. (Cranfield University, 1978-03)
    The work reported here is directed towards the problem of measuring and modeling non-linear damping in steel space frame civil engineering structures. In order to gain a better understanding of the damping mechanism ...
