    • Unsteady momentum fluxes in two-phase flow and the vibration of nuclear reactor components 

      Yih, Tien Sieh; Griffith, P. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, [1968], 1968)
      The steady and unsteady components of the momentum flux in a twophase flow have been measured at the exit of a vertical pipe. Measured momentum flux data has been machine processed by standard random vibration techniques ...
    • Utilization-Aware Adaptive Back-Pressure Traffic Signal Control 

      Chang, Wanli; Chakraborty, Samarjit; Annaswamy, Anuradha (2015-10-07)
      Back-pressure control of traffic signal, which computes the control phase to apply based on the real-time queue lengths, has been proposed recently. Features of it include (i) provably maximum stability, (ii) low ...
    • Void volumes in subcooled boiling systems 

      Griffith, P.; Clark, John A.; Rohsenow, Warren M. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Division of Industrial Cooperation, [1958], 1958)
      Introduction: Knowledge of the pressure drop in a channel and the resulting flow redistribution is essential in predicting the performance of a nuclear reactor. The pressure drop in a channel which is experiencing boiling ...
    • Vortex-induced vibrations of a cylinder with tripping wires 

      Hover, F.S.; Tvedt, H.; Triantafyllou, M.S. (Cambridge University Press, 2001)
      Thin wires are attached on the outer surface and parallel to the axis of a smooth circular cylinder in a steady cross-stream, modelling the effect of protrusions and attachments. The impact of the wires on wake properties, ...
    • Vortical patterns behind a tapered cylinder oscillating transversely 

      Techet, A. H.; Hover, F. S.; Triantafyllou, M.S. (Cambridge University Press, 1998)
      Visualization studies of the flow behind an oscillating tapered cylinder are performed at Reynolds numbers from 400 to 1500. The cylinder has taper ratio 40:1 and is moving at constant forward speed U while being forced ...
