  1. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from engine cycle performance and meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this process many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a ...

  2. Superconducting Developments for Compact Power and Energy Systems

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04EP6

    Superconducting coils are capable of storing considerable amounts of energy. Should a coil quench, due to overheating or exceeding the critical field or current, the stored energy in the coil must be dissipated safely - without endangering personnel or damaging the coil or control systems. In any superconducting coil design, it is essential to design and build the system such that limits of the ...

  3. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density ingredient in ramjet propellants and fuels. This is due to boron's high heat of combustion and low atomic weight. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical volume specific impulses of 1600- 1800 sec g cm-3 have been reported for a fuel rich boron solid propellant, 45 % greater than the best hydrocarbon composition. Boron's high ignition tem ...

  5. Software for the Design and Certification of Unitized Airframe Components

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T015

    This SBIR Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility for a unitized component structural design tool that allows for holistic risk assessment. The analysis will transform the FEA predicted stress (or strain) state into fully probabilistic assessment of uncertainty in geometry and loading throughout the component. Thereafter the design tool will conduct probabilistic microstructural damage accumulati ...

  6. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  7. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    The main objective of this program is to develop a new class of high performance hard magnetic materials that will maintain an energy product of 30 MGOe or greater at temperatures up to 450 °C. These novel magnetic materials are greatly needed for the "more electric" airplanes and space vehicle applications where a high operating temperature is a strict requirement. The approaches to be used for ...

  8. Revolutionary Materials Research Technology for High-Strain-Rate Ordnance Research

    SBC: Trilion Quality Systems, LLC            Topic: AF05160

    The development of aerospace technology is in part limited by the development and implementation of advanced materials. The challenge is to accelerate the maturation and insertion times of advanced materials to support the delivery of technically advanced systems. The precise modeling of these advanced materials and structures is only possible with accurate measurements of their real dynamic res ...
