Award List:

Fretting Fatigue Model

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Scott Prost-Domasky, Dir, Finite Element Tech.
Award Amount: $63,450.00
Abstract:
The multi-task objectives of the plan discussed in this proposal are: research the role and effects of fretting on structural life of components, develop and demonstrate the feasibility of integrating candidate fretting fatigue predictive analytic model(s)into structural integrity methods, integrate… More

Fretting Fatigue Model

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Scott Prost-Domasky, Director of Finite Elemen
Award Amount: $731,000.00
Abstract:
"Fretting is a wear phenomenon that occurs between two mating surfaces: it is adhesive in nature, and vibration is its essential causative factor. Usually fretting is accompanied by corrosion. In general, fretting occurs between two tight fitting surfacesthat are subjected to a cyclic, relative… More

Corrosion Modeling and Life Prediction Supporting Structural Prognostic Health Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Thomas Mills, Consultant
Award Amount: $97,494.00
Abstract:
This proposal offers an approach to integrate the latest corrosion sensor technology with corrosion structural effects modeling to enable the transition from periodic corrosion inspections to an efficient, focused prognostics and health monitoring (PHM) system. The fundamental vision of the… More

Verification of Cold Working and Interference Levels at Fastener Holes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Thomas Mills, Consulting Engineer
Award Amount: $98,141.00
Abstract:
The USAF recognizes that benefits to cold working fastener holes include significantly increased life of a structure subjected to fatigue loading. However, full realization of this potential from a maintenance and engineering standpoint is hindered by the fact that there is currently no adequate… More

Residual Stress Measurement and Forecasting System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Scott Prost-Domasky, Staff Engineer
Award Amount: $98,571.00
Abstract:
The proposed approach for Phase I of this effort brings together two key items that are needed to work in concert with one another: advanced fatigue assessment methods and non-destructive inspection & detection techniques. Successful synthesis of these elements and the engineering disciplines behind… More
