Award List:

Combined Analytical and Experimental Approaches to Rotor and Dynamic Component Stress Predictions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Ali Boufelfel, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $79,999.00
Abstract:
Recent studies have made an attempt to couple computational structural dynamic tools with sophisticated computational fluid dynamic (CFD) solvers. The CFD approach is still at a nascent stage and discrepancies can be observed in both phase and amplitude of the predicted load. Due to the… More

Total Fatigue Life Assessment of Complicated Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: The University of Arizona
Principal Investigator: Ali Boufelfel, Sr. Scientist – (520) 561-5724
Award Amount: $80,000.00
RI Contact: Erdogan Madenci
Abstract:
Based on the foregoing, the goal of this proposed project is to develop a novel methodology based on the peridynamic (PD) theory to predict fatigue life of aerospace structures with high fidelity. A new fatigue model will be implemented in PD framework. The model and its implementation in PD will be… More

Residual Property Prediction for Damage Composite Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Ali Boufelfel, Senior Scientist – (520) 561-5724
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
During a components service life, damage due to high or low energy impact may be introduced, which may lead to premature failure of these structures. Component level structural testing and analysis of advanced composites is prohibitively expensive and time consuming. Instead, using robust and… More
