Thermophotovoltaic energy conversion in submarine nuclear power plants by John N Howard( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

v ABSTRACT Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) cells allow for the direct conversion of infrared (IR) radiation to electricity, similar to when traditional solar cells are exposed to visible light. The objective of this thesis is the development of a computer model of a multijunction TPV cell designed to absorb IR radiation from the primary fluid system of a naval nuclear reactor. This model is then used to determine the feasibility of using this TPV system as a supplemental source of electrical power on a next-generation nuclear submarine. The results of this simulation indicate that the design concept presented in this thesis is a viable option and warrants further consideration and research
An Analysis of the factors affecting the state of fuel and air mixtures by Mitchell Gilbert( Book )

3 editions published in 1946 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data in the form of curves and tables are given to enable estimation of temperatures and other conditions required for complete or partial vaporization of various fuels. An estimate is also made of the maximum and minimum time for evaporation of different sizes of fuel drops; the importance of knowledge of the factors affecting vaporization time is indicated from this estimate

The Rayleigh Archives dedication by John N Howard( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 30 March 1966 a ceremony was held at the Research Library of the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories, Bedford, Massachusetts, to dedicate the Rayleigh Archives: a collection of the notebooks, manuscripts, working papers, and correspondence of the Lords Rayleigh (John William Strutt, the third Baron Rayleigh, and Robert John Strutt, the fourth Baron Rayleigh). The ceremony was attended by a distinguished group from both the military and the scientific community whose research interests relate to the two Rayleighs. The report is a transcript of the discussions of 'Rayleigh Day, ' with only a minimum of editing to correct minor errors that occurred in impromptu remarks. Contents include: Welcoming remarks at Rayleigh Day ceremony (by Dr. John N. Howard, Chief Scientist AFCRL; Colonel Robert F. Long, Commander, AFCRL; and Brigadier General Ernest A. Pinson, Commander, Office of Aerospace Research); Description of the material pertaining to the third Baron Rayleigh; Address by the Honorable Charles R. Strutt; Discussion of the scientific work of the third Baron Rayleigh (Scattering studies, Electrical studies, Argon and other studies); Comments by Professor Chapman on the influence of the fourth Baron Rayleigh on air glow and auroral research; Description of the material pertaining to the fourth Baron Rayleigh; Concluding remarks; Pictorial review of Rayleigh Day ceremony; Attendees at dedication ceremony; A summary of the AFCRL Rayleigh Archives
