  1. Resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation for the deposition of polymer and polymer composite films for conformal optical coating on plastic substrates

    SBC: AppliFlex LLC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: This project will apply resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation techniques to deposit environmentally-durable, adherent and conformal anti-reflection (AR) coating on a plastic (polycarbonate) substrate. The proposed broadband AR coating is based on a multilayer architecture of low-refractive index polymer and high-refractive index polymer or polymer hybrid materials. High quality poly ...

  2. Electrical Energy Storage System by SMES Method for Ultra-High Power and Energy Density

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: AF11BT31

    ABSTRACT: A Novel Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) system is proposed. The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Tallahassee, FL in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) also of Tallahassee, FL proposes in Phase 1 to design a prototype SMES system with significantly enhanced energy storage capacity over earlier SMES concepts. With this design the potential ex ...

  4. High-Temperature Microsample Testing System

    SBC: Nanomechanics, Inc.            Topic: AF112126

    ABSTRACT: There has been growing interest in nano- and micro-scale testing of materials at increasingly elevated temperatures. However technological obstacles have limited the range of materials that can be tested and limited the temperatures that can be successfully reached for experimentation due to oxidation of the sample, thermal drift in the actuation and heat management of the system. For ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...

  8. Rod Control System On-Line Condition Monitoring and Advanced Diagnostics for Existing and Next Generation Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 58a

    Aging and obsolescence issues have recently led to problems with the rod control systems of existing pressurized water reactors. These issues, along with plans for plant life extension, have prompted the industry to actively seek viable options to monitor the health of these systems in order to ensure reliable plant operation for decades to come. This proposed work offers a comprehensive research ...

  9. Advanced Diagnostics for the Control Element Drive Mechanism System in Pressurized Water Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    Current designs of Light Water Reactors (LWR) are equipped with control and shutdown rods that are inserted and withdrawn from the reactor core for reactivity control. In particular, the Control Element Drive Mechanism (CEDM) system is widely used for regulating plant power levels and core power distribution in the existing and next generation of Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs). This system incl ...

  10. Dynamically Controlled Electric Demand Management System

    SBC: Enhanced Systems Consulting, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    The variation between peak and off-peak electricity demand fluctuates up to 70 percent over the course of a 24 hour cycle. This degree of variability is a driver for costly inefficiencies within the power gridto prevent blackouts and meet customer demandas well as power sell offs to consume excess generation available during off-peak hours. Projections estimate the power demand to double by 2050 r ...
