Mean Square Stability of Linear Gyroscopic Systems Under Combined Harmonic and Stochastic Excitations
This paper examines the mean square stability of linear gyroscopic systems under both harmonic and stochastic parametric excitations. The intensities of both excitations and correlation...

Detection of System Nonlinearity
A method for detection of linear/nonlinear characteristics of mechanical systems excited by stationary Gaussian processes is presented. Linear systems under consideration show always a...

Identification of Power Spectra—Linear and Nonlinear Approaches
Linear dynamical filter systems driven by white noise can be used for the generation of stationary and Gaussian processes. A linear approximation method proposed by W. Wedig is presented...

Fatigue Test Using Multi-Notched Specimen and its Reliability Analysis
This paper presents a fatigue testing method using a multi-notched test specimen for the purpose of estimating the distribution function of fatigue crack initiation life by a small number...

Space Power Systems—Radiation: Energy Conversion
Pair production is a way to change a photon, a gamma particle, into matter or energy. It is found that if a photon of energy greater than 1.02 MeV strikes a foil containing a large number...

Conductivity and Transit Time Estimates of a Soil Liner
A field-scale soil linear was built to assess the feasibilty of constructing a liner to meet the saturated hydraulic conductivity requirement of the U.S. EPA (i.e., less than 1 × 10-7...

Use of Linear Programming for Hydraulics Problems
Water is becoming a more and more precious commodity worldwide with each passing day. At the same time, the optimum and most productive solutions to water control and utilization are becoming...

Real Time Flood Forecasting in New Zealand
Current New Zealand real time flood forecasting research developments are described. Successful flood forecasting using a linear system transfer function technique is described. Promising...

Linear Prediction of Interfacial Tides on Corrugated Continental Shelves

Estimating Lake Inflows for Storage by Linear Programming
The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) recently completed a Water Management Plan for the lower Colorado River Basin in Texas. In developing the Plan, a daily river flow routing procedure,...

Buckling Load of Tapered Columns
The basic tapered column with larger section in the center, is considered using Rayleigh-Timoshenko method. Column has linearly increasing Io with...

Finite Element Computations on a Linear Systolic Array
This paper describes a linear systolic architecture designed specifically for finite element computations. Examples of various sparse matrix and vector operations are given. Applications...

Parallel Computation for Linear Programming
In this paper, the basic Simplex algorithm is reexamined. Computational steps which can be done in parallel are identified, and a parallel version of the Simplex method is implemented...

Some Examples of Stochastic Linear Reservoirs

A Tracer-Model for Morphological Simulations of an Estuary
Numerical models for longterm morphological simulations are traditionally based on assumptions like vertical integration of the flow and transport equations and their decoupled treatment....

General Formulation of Best Hydraulic Channel Section
The best hydraulic channel section is determined by using Lagrange's method of undetermined multipliers. The approach presented is more general & easier to apply than...
