Technical Reports - Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (TAM)


The issuance of TAM Technical Reports began formally in 1946, with the printing of a progress report by Prof. Thomas J. Dolan for the U.S. Navy on "An investigation of the behavior of materials under repeated stress." Since that time more than five hundred TAM reports have been prepared for general distribution. The subject matter of TAM Reports is not restrictive; manuscripts intended for publication, theses judged to have general interest, notes prepared for short courses, symposia compiled from outstanding undergraduate projects, and reports prepared for research-sponsoring agencies appear regularly.

If the TAM Technical Report you seek is not available here, go to the Engineering Documents Center based in the Grainger Engineering Library for access to the print copies.

    We present a sharp-interface theory for phase transformations between the isotropic and uniaxial nematic phases of a flowing liquid crystal. These equations include a supplemental interface condition which expresses the ...

    We use a newly developed set of boundary conditions to revisit the problem of an evaporating thin liquid film. In particular, instead of the conventional Hertz–Knudsen–Langmuir equation for the evaporation mass flux we ...
