  5. Connecting High-Power Jet Noise Characteristics with Human Annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    The proposed effort will correlate perceptual features and physical source characteristics of high-powered military jet noise with human loudness judgments and corresponding annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as shock content perceived as crackle and low-frequency rumble. During Phase II, candid ...

  9. Improving Efficiency and Reducing Costs for the Supercritical C02 Design Process

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 18

    Supercritical CO2 cycles have the potential to significantly improve efficiency and reduce emissions in power generation. However, the unique fluid dynamic properties of supercritical CO2 that enable these higher efficiencies also complicate the design and layout of the system, particularly its turbomachinery components. The problem stems specifically from the highly non-linear properties of CO2, ...

  10. Optical fiber integration into Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox/Ag/AgX and (RE)Ba2Cu3Ox superconducting coils

    SBC: Lupine Materials and Technology, Inc.            Topic: 27

    The particle accelerators and detectors needed for future high energy physics devices require magnetic fields higher than those that can be produced by the low-temperature superconductor (LTS) technologies used in present-day superconducting magnets (SCMs). High temperature superconductor (HTS) materials, however, have the potential to generate very high magnetic fields, offering a technological p ...
