WIG Craft and Ekranoplan: Ground Effect Craft Technology by Liang Yun

By Liang Yun

WIGs (Wing in floor) are complex hybrid air cushion crafts they usually provide the combo of velocity, gas potency, and journey smoothness. WIG rides above the outside like an plane on a dynamic air cushion that's produced through the vessel’s ahead movement. The adoption of WIG has been sluggish a result of advanced know-how matters surrounding the vessel; it's a hybrid automobile that mixes marine and aviation thought, wing thought and air cushion conception, aerodynamic and hydrodynamic thought. "WIG Craft and Ekranoplan: floor impact Craft know-how" presents a finished assessment of the layout, improvement and development of WIG vessels.

Drawing upon years of sensible adventure and utilizing a number of examples and illustrative functions, Liang Yun, Alan Bliault and Johnny Doo discuss:

  • Basic rules of WIG craft technology
  • State of the artwork assessment of WIG craft expertise within the usa, Russia, Germany, China and Australia
  • Material and structural layout of WIG craft
  • Lift and propulsion platforms of WIG craft

WIG Craft and Ekranoplan: flooring impression Craft know-how can be of curiosity to naval engineers, aviation engineers, naval architects, and mechanical engineers drawn to the advance and learn of wing in flooring (WIG) and excessive functionality marine vehicles.

Structural Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization 1: Linear by Kyung K. Choi, Nam-Ho Kim

By Kyung K. Choi, Nam-Ho Kim

Structural layout sensitivity research issues the connection among layout variables on hand to the layout engineer and structural responses decided through the legislation of mechanics. The dependence of reaction measures comparable to displacement, tension, pressure, normal frequency, buckling load, acoustic reaction, frequency reaction, noise-vibration-harshness (NVH), thermo-elastic reaction, and fatigue lifestyles at the fabric estate, sizing, part form, and configuration layout variables is outlined in the course of the strength rules (governing equations) of structural mechanics. during this 2-volume set, first- and moment- order layout sensitivity analyses are offered for static and dynamics responses of either linear and nonlinear elastic structural structures, together with elasto-plastic and frictional touch problems.

Book I Linear Systems introduces structural layout techniques that come with the CAD-based layout version, layout parameterization, functionality measures, expenditures, and constraints. It additionally discusses layout sensitivity research of linear structural structures, and discrete and continuum layout sensitivity research methods.

About the Authors:
