  2. A Systematic Investigation of Bluff-Body Combustion Instability

    SBC: AEROSOFT INC            Topic: N/A

    "The industrial gas turbine and military engine manufacturers have astrong need for accurate design tools that are capable of predictingaeroengine combustion, as well as predicting the sensitivity of the flowto a wide range of engine design parameters including actuator power andfuel-injector location. In response to this need, AeroSoft, incooperation with Virginia Tech, propose to experimentally ...

  3. Design and Synthesis of Nanostructured Corrosion Resistance Coating for Ageing Aircraft

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed Air Force Phase II STTR program is to develop polymer/nanocluster-based corrosion-inhibiting coatings for the protection of metal aircraft components. Researchers at the company and on campus would work together to improveand characterize novel protective coatings that were successfully demonstrated to inhibit corrosive processes on typical aircraft aluminum test art ...

  4. High-Temperature, High-Bandwidth Fiber Optic Pressure and Temperature Sensor for Gas Turbine Applications""


    The accurate measurement of gas flow conditions in the compressor, combustors, and turbines of gas turbine engines is important in order to assess performance, predict failure, and facilitate data-driven maintenance. Surface measurements of pressure andtemperature in high temperature regions help engineers optimize performance, and to redesign compressor and turbine stages. As higher turbine ef ...

  5. Microscale Electrospinning of Polymer Nanowires for Sensing Applications

    SBC: Sentor            Topic: AF02T007

    A new chip-scale interconnection technology based on microscale electrospinning of polymer nanowires is proposed. In phase I, polymer fiber interconnections were produced between microscale components on the surface of a chip using only electrostatic forces. The orientation and physical properties of the fibers were found to depend on the processing conditions and can be controlled for particular ...

  6. Programmable Optical Logic Gates for All-Optical Processing


    Luna Innovations proposes to demonstrate a simple all-optical processor by developing programmable optical logic gates based on the highly integrated photonic switch platform developed during the Phase I. These logic gates, once developed, can be assembled according to the principles of digital electronic design to construct a binary processor that performs functions such as add, subtract, increme ...

  7. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  8. Adaptive Control of Synthetic Jet Arrays with Unknown Nonlinearities

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Active flow control using synthetic jet actuators has been the subject of significant research in recent years. Modulated input signals to achieve flow control objectives have been shown to be highly nonlinear and complex. Developing a comprehensive, wind tunnel-validated model of synthetic jet actuators in a single application is technically challenging and expensive. Given the varied and growi ...

  9. Carbon Fiber Nanotube Reinforced Alumina Nanocomposite

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: AF05T023

    Reinforced tough ceramics that fail gracefully are requied for structural components in airframes and engines of military and commercial airplanes. The expected toughening was not realized when alumina powder, containing carbon nanotubes (CNTs), was consolidated by hot isostatic pressing due to the destruction of the CNTs at the high temperatures encountered. HY-Tech has demonstrated in the Phase ...

  10. Instrumentation for Monitoring Breath Biomarkers for Diagnosis of Health, Condition, Toxic Exposure, and Disease

    SBC: RESPIRATORY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF04T017

    Exhaled breath condensate (EBC) pH is a non-invasive measurement capable of identifying lung redox- and acid-stresses that occur in association with inflammatory conditions (pneumonia, trauma, asthma), acidic gas inhalation (chlorine), and gastric acid aspiration. Phase I efforts focused on the development of methodology to continuously measure EBC pH in critically ill or injured mechanically-ven ...
