Materials under Extreme Loadings: Application to Penetration and Impact

This publication provides contemporary and leading edge advances in our figuring out of key facets of the reaction of fabrics less than severe rather a lot that happen in the course of excessive speed effect and penetration. the point of interest of the content material is at the a number of demanding situations linked to characterization and modeling of advanced interactions that take place in the course of those hugely dynamic occasions.

Underwater Repair Technology

This booklet presents an outline of the recommendations on hand to the offshore for the becoming a member of and service of offshore constructions. the previous couple of years have obvious many advancements in underwater engineering expertise the place a variety of welding recommendations, and the mandatory linked gear, at the moment are to be had for underwater becoming a member of approaches within the offshore undefined.

5). The liquid droplet quench testing was performed at Raytheon's test facilities in Tucson, AZ. using the methods and parameters that were established for sapphire domes of the same geometry. ALON domes were heated to a uniform temperature of 150°C and water spray quenched on the concave surface to room temperature using a water temperature of 25°C. All three domes survived this test. Testing of additional ALON domes is currently is process and predictive models of the thermal stresses generated during the quench testing are being refined using the newly measured temperature dependent thermal properties of ALON.

The non-linear and highly dynamic phase change occurring as jets of water are impinged on the dome make analysis of the thermal contour and resulting stress field nearly impossible. It is only with the aid of experimental measurement using IR cameras and carefully time mapping individual elements that a relation between quench temperatures and peak dome stress can be ascertained. While this is a rather laborious technique requiring extensive testing the test has been verified using sapphire domes having the same geometry as the ALON domes that were tested recently.

Thermal Expansion values are slightly higher than previously reported and these new measurements extend the temperature range to include temperatures from -150°C to 800°C. A greater number of points were measured on the specific heat vs. temperature curve and the temperature range of the measurements was extended to include points below 0°C to -50°C.
