  1. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT004

    A combined discrete cohesive interface fracture and continuum damage mechanics initiation and propagation toolkit for Abaqus will be developed for the residual strength prediction of adhesively bonded composite structures subjected to multi-axial loading. This tool will allow us, for the first time, to be able to simulate concurrently both the continuum and discrete damage progression at the bonde ...

  3. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    Dried blood spot (DBS) analysis has gained recognition in recent years in basic science and clinical diagnostics. This impetus relies upon its numerous advantages over the collection, transport and storage of blood samples obtained by conventional venipuncture. Although there is wide-spread interest in DBS, optimization of sample collection and extraction methods, as well as, the subsequent analys ...

  4. RPA Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    The DoD is facing significant challenges in training Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) crews. At the same time that the popularity of RPAs is increasing and the need for qualified crews is skyrocketing, airspace restrictions and limitations in simulators are making it increasingly difficult to offer effective training opportunities. To help the DoD meet these challenges, Sonalysts and our teammates ...

  5. Fuel Flexible Reformer

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: OSD12EP1

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes to develop an ultra-compact, fuel-flexible reformer, including balance-of-plant components, designed for operation with fuel cell stacks for 300 We portable power generator systems. The reformer technology will be based upon our novel proprietary high mass and heat transfer catalytic elements, which were demonstrated to be superior (i.e., more durable, hig ...

  8. Optical Filters on Thin Cover Glass

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121126

    ABSTRACT: Optical filters on solar cells can improve cell performance by maximizing light transmission into the cell and by helping maintain cell operating temperature with minimal added weight. Anti-reflection films reduce Fresnel reflection losses and maximize light transmitted to the cell. Reflection of below band-gap photons reduces the heat load on the photocell. Reflection of specific in-ba ...

  10. In-Service Fatigue Loads Data Gathering

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: AF112213

    ABSTRACT: Structural monitoring of the landing gear of fixed and rotary wing aircraft is of critical importance to the Air Force. These structures are subjected to repeated large dynamic loads that are highly variable in nature. In order to track these structures"fatigue over time, the magnitude and direction of load events and the number of fatigue cycles must be recorded. Smart, embedded mult ...
