  • Sharp, Arnold G.; Sullivan, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1967-07)
    Full scale dynamometer tests were run on a series of unshrouded propellers in the range of propeller diameters considered practical for use on the side propulsion units of the research submarine ALVIN. Measurements taken ...
  • Berteaux, Henri O.; Walden, Robert G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-05)
    This report reviews the analysis and the evaluation of surface buoy systems performed in the Engineering Department of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 1968. The buoy systems considered are single point moored, ...
  • Winget, Clifford L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-05)
    This report presents the design and construction details for various mechanical hand tools and accessories used by a manned deep submersible. The tools require the use of a mechanical manipulator, and were designed specifically ...
  • Sharp, Arnold G.; Sullivan, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-08)
    Tests were conducted on a full-scale model of the emergency forebody release used in the deep-diving submarines ALVIN, SEA CLIFF and TURTLE. The model was machined from metal to the same dimensional tolerances as the ...
  • Vandiver, J. Kim (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-12)
    An analysis of the motion of a docking platform for a deep submersible is presented. The problem is defined as a docking platform, or cradle, suspended beneath a surface vessel by elastic elements, composed of cable, ...
  • Sharp, Arnold G.; Sullivan, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1970-11)
    Laboratory torque tests were perfoirmed using an actual emergency sphere release shaft of the type used in the research submarines ALVIN, SEA CLIFF and TURTLE. A test fixture was constructed which permitted laboratory ...
  • Charnews, Daniel Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-09)
    The drag, amplitude, frequency tension, diameter and length of synthetic ropes vibrating because of vortex-induced forces, and net vibrating at different tensions were measured. Photographs were taken of the vortices. Drag ...
  • Gularte, Ronald Carl (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-05)
    A portable gas chromatograph, using a single flame ionization detector, was constructed. The unit was tested for response to surge, sway and heave accelerations up to 0.3g. Also the detector's response was studied for ...
  • Cohen, Jay Martin (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-06)
    Submerged recovery of small submersibles by means of surface tethered platforms offers the possibility of operations in sea states higher than is now possible using surface recovery means. The Woods Hole Oceanographic ...
  • Poranski, Peter Frank (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-08)
    A bottom mounted electromagnetic current meter measures the vertically-averaged conductivity-weighted velocity. This measurement complements free-fall relative velocity profiles and is valuable for transport determination ...
  • Albro, Carl S. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-08)
    During the last decade there has been increasing interest in discovering the existance of salt fingering in the ocean. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the feasibility of optically detecting ...
  • Dexter, Stephen C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-12)
    This handbook is intended to serve as an aid in materials selection to Oceanographic engineers and designers. As such it is intentionally limited to materials that may be used advantageously in the marine environment.
  • O'Sullivan, James Francis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1973-09)
    Surface recovery of small submersibles could be made safer for personnel and hardware with the installation on the submersible of an inflatable, pneumatic bumper which acts also as main surface buoyancy. Tne use of such ...
  • Hunt, Mary M.; Marquet, William M.; Moller, Donald A.; Peal, Kenneth R.; Smith, Woollcott K.; Spindel, Robert C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-12)
    This report describes a system for underwater acoustic navigation developed, and in use, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. It includes a brief discussion of the electronic components, operation, mathematical ...
  • Sullivan, Paul Francis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-01)
    A theoretical investigation is undertaken into the creep instability of two common shells of revolution, the infinitely long cylinder and the complete sphere. The linear and non-linear visco-elastic material idealizations ...
  • Vandiver, J. Kim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-01)
    In fixed offshore structures, damage incurred below the waterline is often difficult to detect, but significant enough to be the source of a subsequent massive failure. A technique is described that can be used to detect ...
  • Durham, James Leighton (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-01)
    A high resolution acoustic navigation system for ocean use is being developed at the Woods Hole oceanographic Institution. The system can yield navigation fixes with respect to a bottom moored reference net with accuracies ...
  • Tapscott, Susan Schultz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-09)
    An experimental investigation of the tangentiaì drag of an axially oscillating cylinder is presented. Deep-sea mooring cables are oscillated sinusoidally at ocean wave amplitudes and frequencies, and experimenta1 values ...
  • Jaffee, Richard Jay (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-05)
    The acoustic-internal wave interaction in an acoustic waveguide is investigated using wave techniques. Refractive index fluctuations due to the vertical displacements of the internal waves create an inhomogeneous ...
  • Sharp, Arnold G.; Sullivan, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-09)
    The authors developed a pendulum inclinometer suitable for use with small deepsubmersibles or surface craft. The instrument uses a relatively short heavy pendulum and a viscous damping system for minimizing the effects ...
