    • Analysis of coupled body mooring and fender system 

      Girija Sasidharan Pillai, Harish (Texas A&M University, 2005-11-01)
      The hydrodynamic excitation and response behavior of multi-body systems with varying degrees of coupling presents many challenges for designers of offshore structures. In this study, attention is focused upon the analysis ...
    • Boussinesq-equation and rans hybrid wave model 

      Sitanggang, Khairil Irfan (2009-05-15)
      This dissertation presents the development of a novel hybrid wave model, comprised of the irrotational, 1-D horizontal Boussinesq and 2-D vertical turbulence-closed Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) wave models. The ...
    • Coupling Interface for Physics-to-System Simulations 

      Leimon, Michael 1985- (2012-11-02)
      A new interfacial code was developed to couple the reactor physics code PARCS/AGREE to the systems level code MELCOR, with a goal of enabling state- of-art transient event analysis for high temperature gas reactor designs. ...
    • Importance of Fluid Compressibility and Multi-Phase Flow in Numerical Modeling of Hydraulic Fracture Propagation 

      Park, Jaeyoung (2016-07-13)
      We employ the semi-analytical approach in modeling of coupled flow and geomechanics, where flow is solved numerically and geomechanics is solved analytically. We first model a PKN hydraulic fracture geometry numerically ...
