Design curves for oceanographic pressure-resistant housings
Sharp, Arnold G.
MetadataShow full item record
Curves have been prepared to serve as a guide in designing externally pressurized cylindrical and spherical housings and flat end closures. The plots show wall thickness-to-diameter ratio as a function of collapse depth over the range 0-10,000 meters (0-32,800 feet). Curves are plotted for the commonly used stainless steels and aluminum and titanium alloys. Also, there are three dimensionless curves that can be used for any structural material. Included is a brief review of the equations used in plotting the curves.

A study of interdiurnal pressure and temperature variations in the free atmosphere over North America Malone, Thomas F. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1946-08)The three-dimensional distribution of pressure and its variation with time are intimately associated with the principal weather phenomena. However, this association is indirect rather than direct and the link connecting ...

Effects of high hydrostatic pressure on neuromuscular transmission in shallow-living and deep-living crustaceans Campenot, Robert Barry (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-11)The effects of high hydrostatic pressure on excitatory neuromuscular transmission in shallow- and deep-living crustaceans were compared. Pressure caused depression of the amplitude of excitatory junctional potentials ...
