  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  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. Innovative Filtering Techniques for Ground Target Tracking

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF04204

    The project focus is the development of a ground target tracking algorithm to support the JSTARS radar operating in the GMTI mode. Multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) algorithms maintain alternative data associations to represent report-to-track association ambiguities. In Phase 1 we developed a prototype MHT algorithm not requiring the Bayes’ posterior distribution for the target state to be G ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Aircraft Engines

    SBC: EXTRUDE HONE CORP.            Topic: AF05141

    Critical components for aircraft engines are forcing increasing demands for higher accuracy, advanced materials and smaller features to enable advanced designs. The proposed effort will examine the ability of short pulse laser machining to machine aerospace materials at an acceptable throughput rate with minimal subsurface damage. Materials to be investigated will include commonly used aerospace ...

  10. Advanced High Mass Fraction Tactical Rocket Motor Case

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04199

    The higher Mach number flight capability required in future missile systems has necessitated the development of advanced materials capable of surviving the increased thermal loads expected in these systems. Although previous research has indicated that titanium matrix composites (TMCs) are a potential solution to this problem, the high cost of these materials has severely hindered their considerat ...
