Contract: N68335-11-C-0413
Award Amount: $149,861.00
 

Abstract:

Under this STTR, Sentient Corporation, along with the Ohio State University GearLab as a research partner, will develop a probabilistic physics-based damage modeling tool for the simulation of superfinished gear components. This model will consider critical surface, material, and load parameters for components manufactured from common gear steels. The model will also analyze superfinished as well as traditionally processed gear surfaces. The results will include virtual test data to be validated against actual test results.
