    1995

    Abstract

    A general scheme for on-line hybrid substructuring simulation is presented aiming to achieve the deformed position of testing specimen. An artificial neural network is used as predictor of the incremental forces on the specimen to achieve the displacements of the system. Firstly a look is taken at the substructuring on-line hybrid test. Next the artificial neural network predictor is described. Lastly the prototype test is discussed.

    Abstract

    Individual chapters are based on papers presented at the International Conference on On-line Surveillance and Monitoring - organised by the Society of Chemical Industry in London during 1983. The subject matter has been systematically developed to include sections on physical and chemical condition monitoring, applications to components, processes, and complete systems. Topics that receive particular attention include: monitoring by acoustic emission and ultrasonics; on-line corrosion monitoring techniques; predictive monitoring of process equipment; plant monitoring by vibration and noise measurement; monitoring of conventional and gas turbine power plant.

  • Dynamic stability research of HYSWAS on foil borne

    Date published

    2002

    Abstract

    The linearised non-dimensional equation of small perturbation motion of HYSWAS (hydrofoil small water area high-speed ship) and its Eigen equation on foil borne is developed. The discriminance and quality criterion of dynamic stability based on the Eigen root is expressed. The influence is discussed of inertia factors dynamic stability derivatives and drafts on the dynamic stability of HYSWAS on foil borne. Several practical conclusions are obtained.

    Abstract

    An experimental Stirling Engine was fitted with heat flux sensors on the expansion chamber and used to study heat transfer between cylinder wall and working gas - heat transfer coefficients are calculated for heating and cooling strokes and the results compared with theoretical predictions.

  • Analysis of nozzle orifice size effect on smoke in a diesel engine

    Authors

    2000

    Abstract

    The effect of nozzle orifice size on smoke emission was examined in a turbo charged DI diesel engine. The nozzle orifice size was varied under various engine conditions. The rates of emissions were analysed. The results showed that the soot particle size was dependent on the orifice size and also on the spray penetration for the ignition delay period for the ignition delay period. The number of soot particles was shown to be dependent on the amount of fuel injected and on the excess air ration of the burned zone.

    Date published

    2003

    Abstract

    This paper describes the effect of truncations on the reliability of pipelines. The effect of truncation by relief valves on the demand distribution is studied first. The effect of truncation by hydro-testing on the capacity distribution is studied second. Lastly the combined effect of truncation on demand and capacity is studied. A comparison and analysis of results is presented to assess the importance of truncated distributions of demand and capacity on the reliability of pipelines.

  • Effects of compression rate on unconfined compressive strength of cohesive soils - evaluation based on the effective stress

    Authors

    M Shimizu

    Date published

    1997

    Abstract

    The effects of the compression rate on the unconfined compressive strength are studied from the viewpoint that the strength needs to reflect the effective stresses of samples. Unconfined compression tests are performed on two remolded and consolidated clays of high and low plasticity index values with the measurement of pore water pressure via the pressure plate technique. A look is taken at the samples and method. Lastly the results are discussed.

    Abstract

    This paper presents results from a programme of centrifuge experiments which examined the effects of drained pre-loading on the stiffness and load carrying capacity of shallow square footings founded on an over-consolidated clay. The increases in stiffness and bearing capacity induced by various levels of pre-loading are quantified and compared with standard design guidelines and previously published numerical predictions.

  • Report on the use of PLUTOcen-F on 'Lilac' owned by Shin-Nihonkai Ferry

    Authors

    H Shimizu

    Date published

    2000

    Abstract

    The fuel improver PLUTOcen-F is used on a subject vessel and its performance is reported. The active compound incorporated in PLUTOcen products is the ironorganic compound ferrocene. It is reported that fuel combustion improves and soot is reduced as well as the physical structure of soot being changed to a dryer softer structure. The effect of its use is to minimise wear on piston rings and cylinder line and to reduce consumption of system oil and to keep clean the nozzle ring the blade of T-C the combustion chamber of M-E boiler and EGE.

  • The effect on installation on the pullout capacity of ground anchor

    Date published

    2000

    Abstract

    The objective of this investigation is to evaluate the effect of disturbance set up during installation on the pullout capacity of a ground anchor. Investigations show that the test results in homogeneous sands beds is consistent with previous theories. For an anchor embedded in a disturbed zone its breakout factor is also dependent on the ratio of depth/diameter of the anchor. The ultimate resistance of this anchor is significantly reduced when the ratio of depth/diameter exceeds 3. However the effect is not apparent when the width of the disturbed zone is equal to or more than three times the anchor diameter.

    Abstract

    This paper reports on an investigation into the influence of slamming and whipping on the fatigue life of a large high-speed catamaran. Full-scale measurements of slam events were conducted on a 98m Incat catamaran to investigate its slamming behaviour in a variety of sea conditions. The full scale results were then used to determine the influence of the presence of slam events on fatigue life. In addition the effects of significant wave height slam occurrence rates slam peak stresses and whipping behaviour on fatigue life were examined.
