The Spanish Armada by Colin Martin( Book )

66 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A detailed and profusely illustrated large-size volume looks at events leading up to the famous sixteenth-century invasion of England, details of the campaign, and the reasons it failed. Using unique first hand sources (on which they had been working together for a decade) and information dramatically complemented and augmented by the discoveries from the Armada wrecks, (three of which Martin has excavated), the two authors have put together the pieces of the puzzle of the Spanish Armada, reaching some unexpected conclusions

A review of Australian and New Zealand investigations on aeronautical fatigue during the period April 1999 to March 2001 by Colin Martin( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Optimal rework shapes for the most fatigue critical stiffener runout (SRO) locations in the F-111 wing pivot fitting (WPF) upper plate region have been determined using a recently developed finite-element-based gradientless shape optimisation procedure 20. The WPF region is shown in Figure 4. The resulting precise free-form shapes (which typically remove cracked material) render the local notch stress distributions near uniform and typically provide a 30-40% reduction in peak elastic stresses as compared to current rework shapes that exist for aircraft in service with the Royal Australian Air Force. They also typically represent a 50% improvement in stresses, as compared to the nominal blueprint shapes. The unique optimal shapes (of different sizes) have been determined for four of the most fatigue prone SRO locations in the F-111 WPF. The final peak stress level achieved at each of the optimised runouts was relatively consistent; therefore, a similar inspection interval can be expected for each location. A sample comparison of elastic stresses is given in Figure 5, where it should be noted that the key aim was to reduce the peak compressive stress (to minimse residual tensile stresses after cold proof load testing). The recommended rework configuration provides a manageable compromise between minimising the runout stresses and maintaining the WPF buckling strength to within acceptable limits. A number of important issues have been addressed in the present practical problem, including; use of higher-order elements for efficient robust stress prediction; accounting for the effect of size constraints on the optimal shapes; and assessing the robustness of the idealised optimal shapes to perturbations away from idealised conditions, such as those due to potential manufacturing errors. As part of an associated validation program, the precise shapes have been manufactured in two full-scale static test wings

A Review of Australian and New Zealand Investigations on Aeronautical Fatigue During the Period April 1997 to March 1999 by Colin Martin( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document has been prepared for presentation to the 26th Conference of the International Committee on Aeronautical Fatigue scheduled to be held in Bellevue, Washington USA on 12th and 13th July 1999. The review covers fatigue-related research programs as-well as fatigue investigations on specific military and civil aircraft in research laboratories, universities, and aerospace companies in Australia and New Zealand during the period April 1997 to March 1999

Terra in China - China in Terra : Delft keramiek 2013 = Delft ceramics 2013 = Dela · Zhongguo Sanbao - Zhongguo Sanbao · Dela : 2013 Daierfu te tao ci by Colin Martin( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Dutch ceramists embarked on an adventure with Galerie Terra Delft for a work period in the Chinese ceramic city of Jingdezhen, the historical source of the famous Delft Blue pottery. They worked together with five Chinese artists in the idyllic Sanbao Ceramic Art Institute for six weeks. In this book you can follow the stories of their struggles with the unfamiliar Chinese porcelain and the differences in opinion and artistic processes between the Dutch and Chinese artists.
