Award List:

AN IMPROVED STRESS ANALYSIS OF AN ASCENDING BALLOON

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$49,790.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This research attempts to advance the state-of-the-art of balloon design by developing a method to realistically approximate the stress levels in an ascending balloon. the approach will be to combine existing studies on ascent shapes, material properties, and heat transfer mechanisms to produce a… More
