Audiobook two of the Brigantine Lexington series tells the story of the Battle of Turtle Gut Inlet in Cape May, New Jersey. Live it again with the intrepid sailors who battled to wrestle our infant nation from the clutches of tyranny. Find yourself transported to sea on the deck of an 18th-century warship. Come aboard the Continental Navy brigantine Lexington again and experience the danger and camaraderie of Captain John Barry and his shipmates. Cringe as cannon balls fly past your ears; feel the physical exhaustion as you struggle to keep pace with the captain; and experience the tragic loss of a lifelong friend. 1. Language: English.

CFD analysis has been done to predict the mass suction into a cylindrical louvered funnel as a function of louvers opening area, diameter of the funnel and the protrusion length of the nozzle into the funnel.Optimum funnel diameter, protrusion length of the nozzle and height of the funnel has been predicted to obtain maximum air suction into the funnel. The entrance length for the sucking funnel has also been predicted as a function of the louvers opening area, diameter of the funnel and the nozzle inlet temperature. Scaled down experimental models have been made to validate the CFD analysis which could predict the mass suction rate, the maximum suction and the optimum diameter of the funnel. Mathematical correlations have been developed to predict the mass suction rate, exit temperature and velocity at the funnel outlet as a function of funnel operating conditions which can be used by practical funnel designers for Navy or merchant ship.

Ueda Glacier is a large glacier flowing eastward along the south side of the Scaife Mountains to enter Hansen Inlet near the base of Antarctic Peninsula. It was mapped by United States Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos from 1961-67 and named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for Herbert T. Ueda who, with B. Lyle Hansen, was in charge of the deep core drilling program at Byrd Station, summers 1966-67 and 1967-68.
Spiess Glacier (72°12 S 61°18 W / 72.2°S 61.3°W / -72.2, -61.3) is a glacier about 8 nautical miles (15 km) long on Merz Peninsula, flowing north into a small bay east of Hjort Massif on the south side of Hilton Inlet, Black Coast. Mapped by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from aerial photographs taken by the U.S. Navy, 1966-69. Surveyed by British Antarctic Survey (BAS), 1974-75. In association with the names of Antarctic oceanographers grouped in this area, named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1977 after Captain (later V. Adm.) Fritz A. Spiess (1881-1959), of the German Navy, Commander and Scientific Chief of the German Atlantic Expedition in Meteor, 1925-27, after the death of Professor Alfred Merz.e

Twenty two crew members and seven members of the United States Navy Armed Guard lost their lives in this action. The vessel was named after Henry Bacon, the American architect who designed and built many monuments and settings for public sculpture, including the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Henry Bacon was one of the thirty-eight merchant ships in convoy RA-64, which departed Kola Inlet, Murmansk, North Russia bound for Loch Ewe, Gourock, Scotland on Friday, 17 February 1945.

The first USS Absecon (ID-3131) was a freighter that operated in the United States Navy in 1918. She was the first U.S. Navy ship to be named for Absecon Inlet, a small inlet north of Atlantic City, New Jersey. On 17 June 1918, officers of the U.S. Navy''s 4th Naval District inspected Absecon, a single-screw, steel-hulled freighter built in 1918 by the New York Shipbuilding Company in Camden, New Jersey. Although the Navy gave the ship Identification Number (Id. No.) 3131, as it did with most commercial cargo ships and tankers commissioned into U.S. Navy service for use in World War I, the United States Government never took possession of the ship. However, she was armed, and a Navy armed guard crew was placed on board the ship.

She was named after the Battle of Bairoko, a battle over Bairoko Harbor -- a small inlet on the north coast of New Georgia, Solomon Islands -- which took place on 20 July 1943 between American and Japanese forces. Bairoko eventually was occupied by American forces on 26 August 1943. Initially Portage Bay, CVE-115 was renamed Bairoko 6 June 1944, launched 25 January 1945 by Todd-Pacific Shipyards, Inc., Tacoma, Washington, sponsored by Mrs. J. J. Ballentine, wife of Rear Admiral John J. Ballentine, and commissioned 16 July 1945, Captain H. B. Temple in command.

The Byrd Glacier is a major glacier in Antarctica, about 136 km long and 24 km wide, draining an extensive area of the polar plateau and flowing eastward between the Britannia Range and Churchill Mountains to discharge into the Ross Ice Shelf at Barne Inlet. Named by the NZ-APC after Rear Admiral Byrd, US Navy, American Antarctic explorer. A glacier is a large persistent body of ice that forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries. At least 0.1 km² in area and 50 m thick, but often much larger, a glacier slowly deforms and flows due to stresses induced by its weight. Crevasses, seracs, and other distinguishing features of a glacier are due to its flow.

Barcus Glacier (74°15 S 62°0 W / 74.25°S 62°W / -74.25, -62) is a glacier in the Hutton Mountains that drains east-southeast, to the north of Mount Nash and Mount Light, into Keller Inlet in Palmer Land. It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey from ground surveys and from U.S. Navy air photos, 1961 67, and named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for James R. Barcus, ionospheric physics researcher at Byrd Station in the summers of 1966 67 and 1967 68.
