Favorable Plug Shape of an Aerospike Nozzle in Design, Over and Under Expansion Conditions

ava shahrokhi; sahar noori

Volume 8, Issue 1 , September 2018, Pages 1-14


  The influence of the plug shape on the performance of an aerospike nozzle thrust force is studied in different back pressure conditions. To generate smooth plug contours, Cubic B-Spline technique is employed. In the current research, basis functions are obtained using Deboor’s relation. The flow ...  Read More

Torsional analysis of an orthotropic long cylinder weakened by multiple axisymmetric cracks

Alireza Hassani; Amin Hassani; Mojtaba Mahmoudi Monfared

Volume 8, Issue 1 , September 2018, Pages 49-60


  Abstract: The solution to problem of an orthotropic long cylinder subjected to torsional loading is first obtained by means of separation valuables. The cylinder is twisted by two lateral shear tractions and the ends of the cylinder surface of the cylinder are stress-free. First, the domain under consideration ...  Read More
