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.

Tracy, Maren E.; Peltzer, Edward T.; Goyet, Catherine (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-02)Accurate measurement of partial pressure of CO2 in seawater is currently performed by measuring pC02 in an aliquot of a small volume of gas equilibrated with a large volume of the seawater to be measured. PC02 in the gas ...
Calculation of mean seasonal sea surface elevation fields over the North Atlantic continental shelf and slope using historical hydrostation data Churchill, James H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)This report details the calculation and results of a simple coastal elevation field model which was presented in a recent paper (Csanady, 1979). Seasonal mean sea surface elevation fields were calculated over the ...
On the calculation of wind stress curl over open ocean areas from synoptic meteorological data with application to time dependent ocean circulation Welch, Christopher Slocombe (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-02)The method used by N. P. Fofonoff for estimating wind stress curl from surface atmospheric pressure maps is developed for use with the National Meterological Center analysis grid. A formula is developed relating the wind ...
