THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE VALIDITY OF A RESULT OBTAINED IN SIMPLIFIED THERMODYNAMIC CYCLE ANALYSIS WHICH INDICATED THAT MAJOR GAINS IN EFFICIENCY COULD BE ACHIEVED IF GAS TURBINES RELEASED HEAT IN DETONATION WAVES RATHER THAN IN CONVENTIONAL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1983 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: A. wortman , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $49,000.00
Abstract:
This program is to demonstrate the validity of a result obtained in simplified thermodynamic cycle analysis which indicated that major gains in efficiency could be achieved if gas turbines released heat in detonation waves rather than in conventional combustors. a parametric study showed that a… More

PROPOSED HERE IS A DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF REDUCE COMPRESSOR REEQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFIC FUEL CONSUMPTION WHILE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THE THRUST COEFFICIENT.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dr. a. wortman , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $49,985.00
Abstract:
Proposed here is a demonstration of the effectiveness of reduce compressor reequirements and specific fuel consumption while significantly increasing the thrust coefficient. the proposed program is baseed on preliminary in fuel consumption with an order of magnitude increase in thrust coefficients.… More

IN AN ENERGETIC MATERIAL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Donald h tsai
Award Amount: $37,831.00
Abstract:
We propose a detailed study of the dynamics of a detonation wave in a model of a dense energetic material by the method of molecular dynamics. our purpose is to investigate the role of "hot spots" in the initiation of chemical reactions and the accompanying energy transport and energy sharing… More

DETONATION DUCT GAS GENERATOR DEVELOPMENT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00

DETONATION DUCT GAS GENERATOR DEVELOPMENT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
It is proposed to investigate experimentally the performanceof a detonation duct gas generator which in theoretical studies of gas turbine performance was shown to increase theefficiency of a pressure ratio 5 gas turbine from 26% to 43%. transient transverse detonation waves have been shown to… More
