  1. Physics-based, Fast-Running Tool for Fuel Spurt Modeling from HRAM

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141224

    ABSTRACT: In Phase I, CFDRC in partnership with ESI, have developed and validated a physics-based CFD tool to quantify fuel spurt caused by impact and penetration of fuel tanks. CFD tool development, qualification and validation study showed good correlations with experiments in terms of fundamental physics including: a) droplet formation, breakup, size, timing and distribution; b) cavitation zone ...

  4. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods for stem cell isolation are time-consuming, costly, and labor-intensive, and ill-suited for point of care applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a high-throughput, non-invasive, microfluidic stem cell analyzer to enable a rapid isolation of high-quality stem cell products from clinically relevant samples. Our technology enables significan ...

  5. Shoulder injury risk and exertion assessment tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13008

    Musculoskeletal injury among military personnel is an under-recognized problem where shoulder injuries are significant and result in inflammation and pain from overuse, joint derangement, sprain/stain/rupture, and dislocation. Health hazard assessment is essential to ensure that fielded equipment and occupational duties do not exceed human capabilities over short and long term exposures. Hazard ...

  10. Optical System for Precision Atomic Clocks and Stable Oscillators

    SBC: Stable Laser Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141126

    ABSTRACT:The reliability of optical atomic clocks is very dependent lasers which have long lock times to the line-narrowing reference (Fabry-Perot cavity) and atomic reference. This work builds a laser at 657 nm and a polarization maintaining frequency comb for this purpose.BENEFIT:Optical atomic clocks will lead to improved timing stability, enabling reduced range error in navigation systems.
