Award List:

Single Action Wall (SAW) Breecher

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kirk A. Marchand, Managing Principal
Award Amount: $69,928.00
Abstract:
Present approaches for creating openings in reinforced concrete, masonry or other typical heavy construction materials include simple demolition kits (M112 blocks or satchel charges) and newly developed devices like the "rapid wall breaching kit". These devices can breach concrete and masonry… More

Focusing a Thermobaric/High Explosive Blast Wave

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David J. Stevens, Senior Principal
Award Amount: $69,954.00
Abstract:
The current weapon-fired breaching system is effective but is also bulky and expensive. A 40-mm, XM-320-compatible munition that focuses the blast over a 2 to 3-ft diameter area is needed, to breach doors and windows found in typical, non-hardened, civilian-type construction located in Military… More

Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DTRA
Principal Investigator: Charles J. Oswald, Senior Principal
Award Amount: $99,848.00
Abstract:
The team of Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) and Applied Research Associates (ARA) will develop a fast-running methodology that predicts damage levels of structural members subject to the blast environment from high explosives detonated inside a building (i.e., internal explosions). The… More

Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DTRA
Principal Investigator: Charles J. Oswald, Senior Principal
Award Amount: $723,546.00
Abstract:
Develop algorithms for fast-running engineering models relating damage levels of structural members to the blast environment resulting from detonation of high explosives inside a building. Validate models utilizing existing test data and synthetic data generated by high fidelity computational… More

Mitigation of Blast Injuries through Modeling and Simulation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: David Stevens, Senior Principal
Award Amount: $69,968.00
Abstract:
Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) will employ state-of-the-art numerical modeling and simulation (M&S) tools and techniques to assess the performance of armored tactical vehicles when subjected to land mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). PEC will identify the key technical issues,… More

Hardening of CTH for Industry and Government Use

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: David Stevens, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,996.00
Abstract:
CTH is an expert level High Performance Computing (HPC) code developed by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) to model a wide range of shock wave propagation and material motion phenomena. SNL continues to develop the technical capabilities of CTH, and, as a result, CTH is considered one of the most… More

Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) Effects for Fully and Partially Buried Structures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bryan Bewick, Project Engineer – (512) 380-1988
Award Amount: $149,766.00
Abstract:
Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) proposes to develop a coarse-grain neural network modeling approach for efficient simulation of shock propagation through geological media including soil-structure interaction. In the coarse-grain approach, fast-running computational elements are developed… More

Mitigation of Blast Injuries through Modeling and Simulation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: David Stevens, Senior Principal – (512) 380-1988
Award Amount: $468,262.00
Abstract:
Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) will use the results of the Phase I numerical analyses of armored tactical vehicles subjected to landmine detonation to further explore, develop, and validate state-of-the-art numerical modeling and simulation (M & S) tools and techniques. In Phase I, PEC… More
