Abstract:

As part of an ongoing research program at the Naval Postgraduate School concerned with aircraft vulnerability and, in particular, the Hydraulic Ram phenomenon, two FORTRAN IV computer codes were written to analyze in two dimensions problems concerning structure-fluid interaction. This thesis presents the method selected for solution, details the codes written and presents test cases and example problems. Users instructions and program listings for both codes are also included. Author
