## Three-dimensional hydrodynamic model for prediction of falling cylinder through water column; Three-dimensional hydrodynamic model for prediction of falling cylinder through water column

Chu, Peter C.; Fleischer, Peter; Fan, Chenwu; Gilles, Anthony F.
Tipo: Conference Proceedings
Português
The OCEANS 2003, MTS/IEEE Conference Proceedings, DVD-ROM; The hydrodynamic features of a falling mine into the water column is investigated experimentally. The experiment consisted of dropping three cylindrical model mines of various lengths into a pool where the trajectories were filmed from two angles. The controlled parameters were, mine parameters (length to diameter ratio, center of mass location), and initial conditions (initial velocity, and drop angle). Results indicate that center of mass position has the largest influence on the mines' trajectory and that accurate trajectory modeling requires the inclusion of both momentum and moment equations. A statistical-dynamic model has been established to predict the trajectories of the falling mines.

## Mine impact burial experiment

Chu, Peter C.; Smith, Timothy B.; Haeger, Steven D.
Tipo: Conference Proceedings
Português
Fifth International Symposium on Technology and Mine Problem, Society for Counter-Ordnance Technology, Monterey; Mine Impact Burial Prediction Experiment (MIBEX) was conducted at Monterey Bay on May 23, 2000 using a simulated mine. During the experiment, we carefully observe mine track and mine burial depth while simultaneously taking gravity cores. After analyzing the gravity cores, we obtain the bottom sediment shear strength data set. Such synchronous mine burial depth and shear strength data were used to evaluate the Navy's Impact Burial Prediction Model (IBPM) which creates a two-dimensional time history of a bottom mine as it falls through air, water, and sediment. The output of the model is the predicted burial depth of the mine in the sediment in meters, as well as height, area, and volume protruding. Model input consists of environmental parameters and mine characteristics, as well as parameters describing the mine’s release. The MIBEX data show that the current IBPM model needs to be improved.

## Determination of oil film thickness in partial sleeve type bearings by electrical means

Shiflette, William Marshall
Português
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; This investigation was performed at the United States Naval Engineering Experimental Station during the months of February and March, 1949. While casting about in January for a suitable topic for investigation, Captain Liles W. Creighton generously offered the use of any of the station data and equipment which was fitted to the author's purpose. In talking to Mr. Watt V. Smith concerning current projects, the latter stated that some experimental attempts had been made at measuring electrically the film thicknesses in a bearing test machine and invited the author to further these investigations and enlarge upon them if desired. Thereupon this project was undertaken with the able assistance of Mr. Louis A. Nowell.; Lieutenant Commander, United States Navy

## Solving Defender-Attacker-Defender Models for Infrastructure Defense

Alderson, David L.; Brown, Gerald G.; Carlyle, W. Matthew; Wood, R. Kevin

In Operations Research, Computing, and Homeland Defense, R.K. Wood and R.F. Dell, editors, INFORMS, Hanover, MD, pp. 28-49.; The article of record as published may be located at http://dx.doi.org10.1287/ics.2011.0047; This paper (a) describes a defender-attacker-defender sequential game model (DAD) to plan defenses for an infrastructure system that will enhance that system's resilience against attacks for an intelligent adversary, (b) describes a realistic formulation of DAD for defending a transportation network, (c) develops a decomposition algorithm for solving this instance of DAD and others, and (d) demonstrates the solution of a small transportation-network example. A DAD model generally evaluates system operation through the solution of an optimization model, and the decomposition algorithm developed here requires only that this system-operation model be continuous and convex. For example, our transportation-network example incorporates a congestion model with a (convex) nonlinear objective function and linear constraints.

## Great Principles in Computing Curricula

Denning, Peter J.
Tipo: Artigo de Revista Científica
Português
The article of record as published may be found at http://doi.org/10.1145/1028174.971303; In October 2003, the CS Department at NPS initiated a new curriculum organized around a Great Principles framework. Here's an overview of the framework, why it has been difficult to articulate such a framework, experience at NPS, and reflections about computing curricular in general.; The nearly three dozen core technologies of computing sit in a simple framework defined by great principles and by computing practices. The great principles are of two kinds, mechanics and design. Computing mechanics comprises computation, communication, coordination, recollection, and automation. Design principles address concerns for complexity, resilience, performance, evolvability, and security. Practices comprise programming, systems, modeling, innovating, and applying. This framework opens many new possibilities for teaching computer science, including new approaches to programming. The new CS curriculum at the Naval Postgraduate School is based on the framework presented here.
