  1. A Standard Lidar Interface for Wind and Aerosol Profiling from Commercial

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lidar systems offer considerable promise for the acquisition of a variety of atmospheric variables with very high spatial and temporal resolution from airborne platforms. Ground-based lidar systems have been demonstrated that measure aerosols, water vapor, and ozone, and airborne windsensing lidar have been flown on several military aircraft. The growing number of commercial airliners, however, of ...

  2. A Spray Nozzle with Electrically Controllable Spray Characteristics

    SBC: Fluid Jet Associates            Topic: N/A

    In the conduction of benchmark combustion experiments, a fuel spray nozzle that produces a steady-well-defined spray is needed. This fuel spray, of known properties, is a boundary condition for the atomization, mixing, and combustion which results throughout the combustor volume. Present spray nozzles use fluid turbulence, which is chaotic, to drive the spray formation. Because the turbulence ampl ...

  3. XRD Integral Method Determination of the Triaxial Residual Stress Field

    SBC: Lambda Research            Topic: N/A

    Finish machining of structural ceramics can produce residual stresses, and subsurface defects (SSD) acting as stress concentrators, in the near-surface material. Residual stresses and SSD produced by machining affect the mechanical properties of ceramic components. In this context, it is essential that the residual stresses be properly quantified in ceramics, in order to establish suitable machini ...

  4. Simple Optical Vibration Sensor for Small Objects

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A very simple and low-cost optical sensor for measuring vibrations of mechanically supported thin films and other small objects will be developed. Such measurements are useful in characterizing elastic materials properties. The sensor is based upon the so-called self-mixing effect in lasers, which enables the assembly of velocimeters containing nothing more than a diode laser, a lens, and a sign ...

  5. Neural Net Software for Optimization of Ceramic Grinding

    SBC: Native American Technologies Company            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this Phase 1 project is to demonstrate the ability to develop a neural network model of the ceramic grinding process with fusion of the sensor/process control parameter data. A model will be developed from existing NIST data using artificial neural systems (ANS) with algorithms that have previously been specifically designed to provide good results for manufacturing applications, fo ...

  6. A Step/Corba Framework for Integrating Manufacturing Specifications with

    SBC: RENAISSANCE SERVICES            Topic: N/A

    While much of the data involved in product and order definition has been captured in standard electronic structures such as IGES and EDI, material and process specifications are still handled as amorphous, paper-based documents. The use of manual, text-based specifications is an extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming process. Specifications are an integral part of the product and order defin ...

  7. Study of Operation Conditions Including a Refrigerant Composition Heat

    SBC: Spauschus Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Zeotrope refrigerant mixtures have been proposed and used for energy saving. Matching the temperature glide of the refrigerant to the temperature change of the heat sink and source, while simultaneously reducing the pressure difference seen by the compressor will result in significantly improved efficiency. A new cycle based on a mixture cascade combined with a rectifier column has recently been i ...

  8. Efficient Three-Dimensional CFD Model for Spray Combustion

    SBC: StreamWise, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A program is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a general computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method for predicting turbulent, multi-phase mixing and reacting fluid/particle dynamics for three-dimensional spray combustion systems. The method allows coupled flow, chemistry and polydisperse aerosol behavior to be calculated efficiently in a Eulerian reference frame. Dispersed dropl ...
