    • Arguello, Jose Guadalupe (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1985)
      The Morison hydrodynamic force prediction equation is commonly used to compute the wave forces on offshore structures composed of "small members". The computations are carried out assuming that the force coefficients, C[d] ...

      Apparatus and methods for preventing penetration of vehicles by causing the guardrail extruder terminal to contact and engage the frame or chassis of vehicles in a collision. In preferred embodiments, a guardrail extruder ...
    • Ross, Hayes E.; Bligh, Roger; Buth, Eugene C. (United States. Patent and Trademark Office; Texas A&M University. Libraries, 2013-08-27)
      Devices and methods for supporting guardrail terminal installations that incorporate safety end treatments such as the GET and the SRT. Preferred embodiments are described wherein guardrail terminal installations are ...
    • Bligh, Roger; Brown, Steve; Buth, Eugene; Ross, Hayes E. (United States. Patent and Trademark Office; Texas A&M University. Libraries, 2004-04-06)
      A guardrail extruder terminal includes a rail feeder chute associated with a downstream end of the guardrail extruder terminal. The terminal also includes an impact portion associated with an upstream end thereof. The ...
    • Ivey, Don L.; Ross, Hayes E.; Beason, Lynn W. (United States. Patent and Trademark Office; Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1992-10-20)
      A low profile road barrier that minimizes obstruction to vision and the ramping and rolling of automobiles which may be comprised of one or more interconnected concrete barrier segments stationed along the road or cast in ...
    • Ko, Man-Gi (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1992)
      Measurements system of three-dimensional motion of an impacting vehicle were studied. Through the review of existing systems, a nine accelerometer array was found to be a both stable and economical system. This system ...
    • Sicking, Dean Leo (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1992)
      A work potential based analysis was used to model damage related material nonlinearities in graphite-epoxy laminates. Two work potentials were incorporated. One potential was related to sub-ply damage, such as shear banding ...
    • Lee, Seung Joon (Texas A&M University, 2005-08-29)
      Theoretical formulations, analytical solutions, and finite element solutions for laminated composite plate and shell structures with smart material laminae are presented in the study. A unified third-order shear deformation ...
