  1. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  2. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  3. Material Surface Properties Modifications by Nonequilibrium Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Processing

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF05T028

    The proposed research will develop a non-equilibrium plasma source for deposition of thin films on refractory materials at temperatures less then 600K. The developed source will also have the flexibility to surface treat thermally sensitive substrates without damage. Our existing non-equilibrium atmospheric plasma source will be optimized for depositing amorphous SiC and ZrO2 thermal barrier mat ...

  5. Field Mistuning Inspection Tool

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: AF05183

    Blade Diagnostics Corporation proposes to study the feasibility of developing a field mistuning tool and an associated approach for managing the mistuning problem in integrally bladed rotors (IBRs). The field inspection tool will determine the frequencies of individual blades in IBRs using the methods developed at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The tool will be a faster, automated version of ...

  6. Joint Systems Engineering Methodology (JSEM)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05071

    Systems Development (SD) processes demonstrate a need for improvement, particularly to increase the frequency with which systems succeed in real world settings. Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE) offers numerous principles, methods, and tools that are well-suited to addressing areas in which SD is currently most weak (e.g., handling complexity and supporting the design phase). In response to thi ...

  7. Cognitive Architecture Bridge (CAB)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05088

    Years of research in human behavior modeling have yielded a wide array of cognitive architectures. The most vital challenges confronting the field are to find an economical way to leverage the strengths of each of the multiple existing architectures and to facilitate and simplify the manner in which new cognitive models are produced, as well as to reduce the time entailed in their production. Req ...

  8. Cycles Of SiTuation Update with ModEls (COSTUME)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF05104

    An extensible system for level 2 and 3 data fusion utilizing new classes of Behavioral, Situation and Threat Models will be developed. The framework for this system is based on a model of the human analytic process in which cycles of situation update and revision are performed as evidence arrives incrementally. We argue that people learn a combination of localized information, that we call a men ...

  9. Coupling of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Reentry Vehicle Surface Ablations, and In-Depth Conductions

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF05241

    The innovation for this Phase I program is the extension of the new Rocket Plume Flowfield Model (RPFM) to analyze Reentry Vehicle (RV) body flows. The Phase I effort provides the foundation for a highly optimized, fast-running Reentry Vehicle Flowfield Model (RVFM) for analysis of thermal protection systems (TPS). Many of the key features are already in place to expedite RV flow solutions (GUI, N ...

  10. Improved Modeling Tools for High Speed Reacting Flows

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF05194

    Recent work in high speed reacting flows has identified three areas in which model improvements are needed. (1) Multi-element grid adaptation for fuel injection problems - h-refinement (cell splitting) procedures being utilized in our grid adaptation tool, CRISPr, produce large meshes after several levels of refinement. Point redistribution (r-refinement) techniques based on moving mesh concepts c ...
