  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 ...

  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. Design Concepts for CMC Leading Edges with Embedded Metallic Heat Pipes

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: AF05247

    This effort explores and assesses the options available for refractory composite leading edges cooled by embedded metallic heat pipes. Currently, the heat pipe cooled leading edges (HPCLE's) being investigated are fabricated primarily from refractory superalloys. However, even the best superalloys have a temperature limit of ~2400°F, which places substantial limitations on the possible geometry ...

  8. New Decontamination for Aircraft Cargo Interior

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: AF04063

    Atmospheric Glow Technologies proposes to develop the Plasma Agent Neutralization Elimination (PLANE) System based upon its patented One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP) technology. When developed, this advanced design will serve as a system for the decontamination of aircraft and associated cargo. AGT has demonstrated the success of OAUGDP in decontaminating various substrates ...

  9. Calculation and Testing of Alternating Current (AC) Losses in Coated Conductors and the Development of Practical Conductors and Coils for Operational

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    The use of coated HT superconductors in the ac windings of electrical machines offers the possibility of much lighter electrical devices. To use these conductors at proposed high frequencies, present “as-manufactured” conductor geometries must be modified to reduce their ac loss by using fine filaments and other topologies). Equally important are more global winding losses requiring suitable ...

  10. Improved Trajectory Control for Penetration into Soils at 4000 ft/sec

    SBC: DE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04160

    We propose to develop an earth penetrator with improved shape for trajectory stability during high-speed penetration. Several promising penetrator shaping concepts have been identified in Phase I. Through further analysis, one or two of these will be selected for further development. Penetrator designs will be formulated and optimized, then tested through gun firings of scale-model penetrators int ...
