Ceramic Armor and Armor Systems II, Volume 178

Includes papers at the improvement and incorporation of ceramic fabrics for armor purposes. themes comprise impression and penetration modeling, dynamic and static checking out to foretell functionality, harm characterization, non-destructive overview and novel fabric strategies. content material:

Materials under Extreme Loadings: Application to Penetration and Impact

This e-book offers fresh and leading edge advances in our knowing of key elements of the reaction of fabrics below severe a lot that ensue in the course of excessive pace impression and penetration. the focal point of the content material is at the various 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 ebook offers an summary of the ideas on hand to the offshore for the becoming a member of and service of offshore constructions. the previous few years have visible many advancements in underwater engineering know-how the place a variety of welding recommendations, and the mandatory linked gear, are actually to be had for underwater becoming a member of approaches within the offshore undefined.

1 ). 2. 6 is to reduce the useful output available from the turbine, which therefore also reduces the cycle efficiency relative to the given heat addition. 5). 3 shows the effects of varying the pressure ratio and over-all temperature ratio in a real engine. 1 to compensate. Three sample compression ratios were used: 4, 10 and 20 to 1. Five turbine entry temperatures were used: 800, 1000, 1200, 1400 and 1600 K, with no allowance for blade cooling. The air mass flow was 1 kg/s, the inlet pressure Po 1 was 1 bar and To 1 was 288 K.

To desorb into the high pressure ducting, heat is added at about 373 K from a solar or geothermal source. After regeneration, the high-pressure gas is further heated with high-grade energy from a source at about 973 K. The turbine then drives only the electrical load. It is anticipated that about 90 per cent of the high-grade energy is recovered as electricity, while about three times as much low-grade heat is also required. 6. 3 Cycle Calculations: Design Point Performance Engine performance can be calculated at a multitude of different levels.

9). Carbon dioxide is another relatively inert gas which is a viable working fluid, and might even be replenished from the combustion gases. Nitrogen is used in the regasification of LNG, which provides the cooling necessary before recompression: in this application, the regenerative cycle with external combustion also provides useful shaft power for electricity generation. 10. External combustion experience is expected to lead to the use of helium closed-cycle gas turbines as the means of extracting power from advanced, gascooled nuclear reactors.
