  • Eshelby, M. E. (Cranfield University, 1979-01)
    The longitudinal handling qualities of light aircraft have traditionally been assessed in terms of the slope of the static stability trim curves. This method of assessment is simple in terms of analysis as well as being ...
  • Kecman, Dušan (Cranfield University, 1979-02)
    The thesis is concerned with the theoretical determination of the overall and local effects on the collapse behaviour of bus structures in a roll over situation. The aim is to enable an early selection of structural components, ...
  • Nevrala, D. J. (Cranfield University, 1979-04)
    The assessment of room air movements, in all but elementary cases, relies on investigations using either full-size mock-ups or scaled models. Temperature considerations severly limit the maximum geometric scale factor. A ...
  • Mota, J. M. F. (Cranfield University, 1979-05)
    A less well known form of transverse cracking in carbon manganese and low alloy steel weld metals, generally referred to as chevron cracking, has been found in a large number of industrial welds. These cracks are characterized ...
  • Varaprasad, N (Cranfield University, 1979-07)
    In Britain, and in the other major industrialised countries, a significant redistribution of urban population is taking place. Metropolitan.conurbations are losing population and employment to the surrounding ...
  • Mian, M. N. (Cranfield University, 1979-11)
    The effect of oxides on the topographies of various random engineering surfaces and steady-state thermal contact resistances between oxidefree and oxidized metallic surfaces in contact in high vacua have been investigated. ...
  • Nahas, Mahmoud Nadim (Cranfield University, 1980)
    A new modified maximum strain failure criterion is proposed to predict the failure of the laminae of laminated fibre-reinforced composite structures when the laminate is subjected to combined loadings. The new criterion ...
  • Garner, J. D. (Cranfield University, 1980-03)
    Third-level airlines are approached as a financial system composed of models of travel demand and cost. The models are formulated by multiple regression, subjective probability distributions, and weighted ...
  • Mahmood, M. (Cranfield University, 1980-04)
    This thesis is concerned with the determination of the local and average mass/heat transfer--from swirling jets impinging orthogonally onto flat surfaces. ApplicatioCn> of swirl alters the flow field of the' jet ...
  • Oladiran, M. T. (Cranfield University, 1981-09)
    Jet impingement heating and cooling techniques are used extensively in industrial applications. in some of these installations, the axis of the jet can be inclined relative to the impingement surface. The impingement ...
  • Mohey El-Din, K. H. (Cranfield University, 1981-09)
    It is clear that there is no long-term solution to energy supply problems other than planned and continuous conservation. The use of low-grade energy as an unlimited resource will play an important part in maintaining ...
  • El-Shamarka, S. (Cranfield University, 1981-10)
    Working fluids for thermal heat pump cycles have been studied. Methanol in conjunction with a mixture of inorganic bromides has been identified as being suitable for transforming heat from temperatures below zero ...
  • Sham Sunder, K. (Cranfield University, 1981-10)
    A three-dimensional method of stress analysis using finite element techniques is presented for determining the stress distribution in centrifugal impellers. It can treat all of the three types of loading possible in an ...
  • Al-Hassani, T. S. J. (Cranfield University, 1982-03)
    Component erosion in gas turbines can be a serious problem. The erosive particles which may be sand, ingested into compressors in desert regions, or carbon shed from gas turbine combustors, contribute to significant ...
  • Richards, T. L. (Cranfield University, 1982-04)
    The nature of sound in cars is discussed in the light of previous experimental and theoretical work, and the major contributions to interior noise are identified. The acoustic field inside a vibrating structure is ...
  • Kurt-Elli, H. (Cranfield University, 1982-05)
    Modern road vehicle suspension and steering systems may generally be classed as multi-loop spatial mechanisms, designed with links constrained and interconnected in such a manner as to attempt a preferred and prescribed ...
  • Anderson, J. M. (Cranfield University, 1982-06)
    A sample of fifty male and fifty female drivers took part in an:. experiment designed to evaluate a multi-characteristic power assisted steering system. Subjects drove a car fitted with the system for two one-hour periods ...
  • Ahn, D. M. (Cranfield University, 1982-10)
    Effects of various wing-body interaction design parameter variations on the structural behaviour of a small RPV have been investigated using the finite element method on an adhoc basis rather than a classical analytic ...
  • 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 ...
  • Mohan, S. R. (Cranfield University, 1983-06)
    This thesis is divided into, two distinct parts. Part I describes the design and development of an intermittent cryogenic wind-tunnel, in which the cold conditions are generated by the expansion of high pressure gas. The ...
