Hurricane relocation planning for Brazoria, Galveston, Harris, Fort Bend, and Chambers Counties by Carlton E Ruch( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of five Texas coastal counties provides data for decision making leading to regional coordination of evacuation before hurricanes. The data can also be used in specific county or city evacuation plans. Three methodologies are developed that can be used in other coastal areas as well. SLOSH (Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes) is one such method. The following information is presented to help in deciding how soon evacuation must begin in certain areas to safely evacuate residents before routes are cut off by winds or storm surge that accompanies hurricanes: (a) possible surge penetration for hurricanes of varying intensities; (b) critical places in the study area to indicate road cutoff times by hurricane type for both surge penetration and wind intensity (given in hours plus or minus anticipated time of storm center landfall); (c) hurricane-prone areas that probably should evacuate for most storms (these areas are divided into evacuation zones by county); (d) areas subject to surge intrusion only in extremely severe hurricanes (these areas are divided into contingency zones by county); and (e) the number of hours required to evacuate the residents of evacuation zones who indicated that they would evacuate if advised to, and the number of hours required to evacuate all persons from evacuation and contingency zones if hurricane winds exceed 130 m.p.h. Data are also supplied for the Freeport and Texas City levee systems and for Galveston Island, and data on shelter needs are provided. Information and cautions in using this report are addressed to the media. In addition, hurricane categories and words associated with hurricanes are defined"--Texas A & M University sea grant publication website (http://texasseagrant.org/publications/category/1981-publications/P15)

A unified approach to vehicle design, control, and flight path optimization by Rush D Robinett( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A set of vehicle design and control optimization methods is presented that minimizes the difference between the desired and actual dynamical flight paths. The approach taken seeks the optimum, physically admissible mass properties and/or the thrust history of the vehicle to minimize a quadratic measure of departure from the desired path. The minimization process developed here belongs to a family of problems which are commonly referred to as constrained parameter optimization. A recursive quadratic programming algorithm is used to implement the analytical formulation as a numerical algorithm. The first section of the dissertation provides the derivations of the equations of motion for fixed and variable mass bodies which include the unification of the control volume and particle dynamics analyses of the variable mass body problem. In the second section, analytical and numerical optimization procedures are discussed in detail. Suboptimal control is employed to parameterize the functional optimal control problem and thereby convert it into a constrained parameter optimization problem. This conversion process creates a unified solution methodology for the parameter optimization approach for solving this family of optimal control problems. The third section defines basic concepts and measures of stability and robustness of "motion-matching" in terms of the uniform boundedness of the deviation from the desired flight path. The analytical stability analysis of the optimized body produces "similarity parameters" for perfect motion-matching. Finally, the theoretical results are illustrated with a set of test cases (axisymmetric, sphere-cone reentry body). The fixed mass cases provide the dominant similarity parameters, whereas the variable mass bodies determine the effects of the mass-flow-induced terms, an isentropic nozzle, and a tandem optimization technique. The fixed mass case demonstrates that the moment of inertia ratio is the dominant similarity parameter. This dominance appears as a five second difference in the point of instability. The thrusting case shows the negligible effects of the mass-flow-induced terms and the isentropic nozzle model for this set of trajectories (magnitudes ≅ 10⁻³). Also, the optimization of the mass properties before the thrust history significantly improves the performance of the vehicle (increased rotational tracking)
