  3. STRESS ANALYSIS OF HYPERVELOCITY MODELS UNDER HIGH G-LOADS

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO ANALYZE THE HYPERVELOCITY MODELS TESTED AT ARNOLD ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT CENTER TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF NOSETIP FRACTURES. WE WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL BY PERFORMING TWOAND THREE-DIMENSIONAL FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSES OF THE HYPERVELOCITY MODEL USING DYNA2D AND DYNA3D. IF NECESSARY, WE WILL ALSO DO HYDRODYNAMIC ANALYSES OF THE GAS EXPANSION WHICH DRIVES THE ...

  5. RETRODIRECTIVE FLIGHT TEST ARTICLE INSTRUMENTATION ANTENNA

    SBC: Brehn Corp            Topic: N/A

    A FAMILY OF ELECTRONICALLY STEERED CIRCULAR PHASED ARRAY ANTENNAS ARE CONFIGURED FOR USE ON SPINNING RE-ENTRY VEHICLES (RV). THIS TECHNIQUE ALLOWS RVS FROM SIX INCHES TO TEN FEET DIAMETER TO ACHIEVE GREATLY INCREASED PERFORMANCE COMPARED TO PRESENT SYSTEMS: CONTINUOUS RANGE SAFETY ACHIEVED THROUGHOUT RV FLIGHT; SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER DATA RATES FROM IMPROVED DATA MONITORING; REQUIRED SPATIAL COVERAG ...

  6. OPTICAL BEAM STEERING AND SHAPING USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    ONE FACTOR LIMITING THE USE OF OPTICS IN APPLICATIONS SUCH AS COMMUNICATIONS, LASER RADAR, AND OPTICAL PROCESSING IS THE LACK OF A SATISFACTORY TECHNOLOGY FOR THE STEERING AND SHAPING OF OPTICAL BEAMS. SIMILAR PROBLEMS HAVE EXISTED FOR RADAR AND RADIO COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS. IN THOSE TECHNOLOGIES, HOWEVER, THE PROBLEMS HAVE LARGELY BEEN SOLVED BY THE USE OF PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA TECHNIQUES. DISPLAY ...

  8. NUMERICAL MODELLING OF KINETICS-TURBULENCE INTERACTION IN HIGH MACH NUMBER FLOWS

    SBC: Cambridge Hydrodyn Inc            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP METHODS TO SOLVE ONE OF THE CRITICAL PROBLEMS OF TURBULENCE MODELLING INVOLVED IN HYPERSONIC FLOW IN WHICH ALL TRADITIONALLY USED TURBULENCE MODELS FAIL, NAMELY MODELLING OF KINETIC MIXING AND CHEMICAL REACTION PROCESSES IN HIGH MACH NUMBER (MA-25) TURBULENT FLOWS. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP DIFFERENTIAL TRANSPORT MODELS BASED ON OUR NEW RENORMALIZATION-GROUP (RNG) THEORY FOR TURB ...

  10. NONCONVENTIONAL PRECISION TRAVERSE SYSTEM

    SBC: Micro Craft Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE TREND OF DATA ACQUISITION TECHNIQUES CHANGING TO LASER VELOCIMETER SYSTEMS, THE NEED TO ACCURATELY POSITION THE LASER BEAM INSIDE THE TEST SECTION IS OF CRITICAL IMPORTANCE. A SYSTEM WHICH ALLOWS THE BEAM TO BE POSITIONED IN THE THREE TRANSLATIONAL DEGREES OF FREEDOM WILL PERMIT DATA TO BE RECORDED AT ANY POINT INSIDE THE TEST SECTION. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL ACCOMPLISH THE NECESSARY MOV ...
