  1. Wide-Range High-Boost Turbocharging System Using Advanced Aerodynamic Design Features

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Increasingly stringent exhaust emissions and fuel economy legislation is forcing automotive engine designers to: 1) demand increased pressure ratios from turbocharger compressors to ensure complete fuel combustion, 2) use Exhaust Gas Recirculation for emission reduction, and 3) reduce engine displacement while maintaining or even increasing output power to reduce fuel consumption. These three chan ...

  2. Magnetic Bearings for Supercritical CO2 Service

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 29f

    The technology development for the supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power plant is well underway, and the first pilot plants are now under construction. The new pilot plants are sized for a 10 MW net power output; a good size to gain valuable data for larger utility scale power plants. This is also a very good size for the smaller, distributed power applications. The distributed power application is envis ...

  3. PRISMS- Profile Resolving In-Situ Soil Moisture Sensor

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 20a

    Many contaminated DOE sites are located in arid regions where depth to groundwater is significant and/or contaminants were discharged into a vadose zone through which transport to the groundwater table is dominated by unsteady, unsaturated groundwater flow. The absence of an effective means to monitor vadose zone moisture content in profile has been a persistent impediment to developing and calibr ...

  4. Variable Inlet Bypass for Efficient Wide Flow Range Turbocharger Compressor

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 06c

    Increased use of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) combined with engine downsizing has pushed automotive turbocharger compressor operation towards and often beyond its efficient and stable operating boundaries. Much of the drive cycle is spent operating the compressor at low flow rates and low pressure ratios, near the compressor surge line, in an area which is usually of low efficiency. Our prelimi ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Integrated Vehicle Health Management "Intelligent Engine" Turbopump Concept

    SBC: TURBO SOLUTIONS ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF05201

    Turbo Solutions Engineering LLC is providing this proposal for a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Program. The technical objectives are to demonstrate the feasibility of the integration of real-time performance monitoring and diagnostics within a turbopump system, to provide operational status data, and to predict the remaining life of critical components. This Integrated Vehicle Healt ...

  7. Nano Graphene Plate-Reinforced Polymer Composites

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 20

    79671S Attempts to produce Carbon Nano Tube(CNT) in large quantities have been fraught with overwhelming challenges due to poor yield, costly fabrication, and the need for the purifying processes required to make them useful in applications. This project will develop an alternative nanoscale carbon material with comparable properties that can be produced cost-effectively and in larger quantities ...

  8. Geophysical Characterization of the Multiplew Phase Saturation of Rocks and Soils: Development of Methods and Software for CO2 Sequestration

    SBC: New England Research, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    79399S The world is becoming increasingly concerned about global warming and the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2. Therefore, the capture and permanent sequestration of CO2 has become a major goal related to future energy development and use. This project will develop technology for assessing potential sequestration sites and for monitoring their ultimate storage integrity. The approac ...
