  3. Integrated Reacting Fluid Dynamics and Predictive Materials Degradation Models for Propulsion System Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1202

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are routinely used by NASA to optimize the design of propulsion systems. Current methods for CFD modeling rely on general materials properties to determine fluid structure interactions. This introduces uncertainty when modeling extreme conditions, where materials degrade and properties may change as a consequence. This also limits the use of CFD as a ...

  4. Sensing Aware Autonomous Communications System

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: T501

    Space Micro and its partner research institution, the University of Arizona bring together innovations in channelization and network protocol development. Together, these innovations will provide improved hopping radios (with digital, rapidly reconfigurable implementation, wider bandwidth and reduced overhead penalty for hopping) and improved spectrum and link quality sensing. We will demonstrate ...

  5. Dynamic ASE Modeling and Optimization of Aircraft with SpaRibs

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T401

    In aircraft design, reducing structural weight is often a prime objective, while various constraints in multiple disciplines, such as structure, aerodynamics and aeroelasticity should be imposed on the aircraft. Therefore, engineers need optimization tools to incorporate the multidisciplinary constraints using appropriate fidelity during the early stages of concept design. Classic structural desi ...

  6. Active Twist Control for a Compliant Wing Structure

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T401

    Blended wing body (BWB) aircraft provide an aerodynamically superior solution over traditional tube-and-wing designs for a number of mission profiles. These platforms provide an all-lifting surface with a reduced wetted area, which lead to significant aerodynamic improvements over their conventional counterparts. However, due to their lack of a conventional tail surface with which to trim in pitch ...

  7. Gust Load Estimation and Rejection With Application to Robust Flight Control Design for HALE Aircraft

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: T401

    High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) aircraft have garnered increased interest in recent years as they can serve several purposes, including many of the objectives of satellites while incurring a fraction of the cost to deploy. Examples applications include Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance, communications relay systems, and environmental and atmospheric sensing. The requirements for H ...

  8. Innovative Aerodynamic Modeling for Aeroservoelastic Analysis and Design

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T401

    We propose the development of a modern panel code for calculation of steady and unsteady aerodynamic loads needed for dynamic servoelastic (DSE) analysis of flight vehicles. The code will be especially tailored to be robust, reliable, and integrated with the NASA Object Oriented Optimization (O3) system through selection of analysis methods, file formats, and computing environment, allowing it to ...

  9. Improved Forecasting of Solar Particle Events and their Effects on Space Electronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    High-energy space radiation from Galactic Cosmic Rays and Solar Particle Events (SPEs) pose significant risks to equipment and astronaut health in NASA missions. In particular, energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) constitute a highly dynamic and penetrating radiation environment that may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, bu ...
