Drag coefficients of vibrating synthetic rope
Charnews, Daniel Paul
MetadataShow full item record
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 coefficients were calculated and plotted against Reynolds Number. The measured frequency is compared with data from other sources. The measured diameter is compared with that calculated from conservation of volume.

Experimental and seismological constraints on the rheology, evolution, and alteration of the lithosphere at oceanic spreading centers deMartin, Brian J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)Oceanic spreading centers are sites of magmatic, tectonic, and hydrothermal processes. In this thesis I present experimental and seismological constraints on the evolution of these complex regions of focused crustal ...
Ecology of chemical defenses of algae against the herbivorous snail, Littorina littorea, in the New England rocky intertidal community Geiselman, Joy Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)In the New England rocky intertidal community, space is dominated by two perennial plant types, brown fucoid algae (Ascophyllum nodosum and several species of Fucus) in the mid zones and the red alga Chondrus crispus ...
A study of the large scale circulation and water mass formation in the Nordic seas and Arctic Ocean Mauritzen, Cecilie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-10)In this thesis, production of dense water that feeds the dense overflows across the Greenland-Scotland Ridge has been considered. A new circulation scheme is developed which is consistent with the water masses, currents ...
