(2020-05-12)This thesis analyses the Helicon Injected Inertial Plasma Electrostatic Rocket (HIIPER), a space propulsion concept consisting of a helicon source for plasma generation and an ion extraction method using a nested pair of ...
Manufacturing of glass-fiber-reinforced dicyclopentadiene-matrix composites via frontal polymerization (2020-03-09)A homogenized reaction-diffusion model is used to study the mechanism of frontal polymerization in glass-fiber-reinforced dicyclopentadiene-matrix composites by studying the effects of the material properties of the ...
(2020-05-12)In this thesis we establish a framework with which to characterize candidate sources of disturbance for small satellite applications. By characterize we mean estimate disturbance source vibrational frequencies, and by ...
Development of a test section featuring a flat plate conditioned for the study of fully developed turbulent boundary layers using PIV (2020-05-15)The purpose of this thesis is to describe the logic behind the extension of a test section in a facility that was designed for studying fully developed turbulent boundary layers in wall-bounded flow, primarily using Particle ...
Characterization of inclined oscillating jets and crossflow interaction for use in active flow control (2020-05-14)Phase-locked stereoscopic PIV measurements were conducted to understand the interaction of inclined fluidic oscillator jets with a crossflow across a range of different blowing ratios. The fluidic oscillators used in the ...
