  2. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  6. Game Theoretic Resource Optimization for Battle Management

    SBC: VCRSOFT LLC            Topic: MDA09026

    The resource allocation problem and the associated resource management solution is composed of three levels. At the highest level is the game theoretic mapping of alternative offense and defense actions, much like a chess game. At the next level is the large-scale efficient mathematical optimization formulation of the game theory matrix. At the last level is the solution of each optimization sub-p ...
