  3. Transient Acoustic Environment Prediction Tool for Launch Vehicles in Motion during Early Lift-Off

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Launch vehicles experience extreme acoustic loads dominated by rocket exhaust plume interactions with ground structures during lift-off, which can produce damaging vibro-acoustic loads on the vehicle and payloads if not properly understood and mitigated against. Existing capabilities for modeling the turbulent plume physics during early lift-off are too dissipative to accurately resolve the propag ...

  4. Multiphase Modeling of Solid Rocket Motor Internal Environment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Solid rocket motor (SRM) design requires thorough understanding of the slag accumulation process in order to: predict thrust continuity, optimize propellant conversion efficiency, predict coning effects from sloshing, and assess potential orbital debris (slag) hazard. Current state-of-the-art models for SRM environment do not have the capability to simulate the accumulation and dynamics of slag in ...

  5. Multiphysics Framework for Prediction of Dynamic Instability in Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: T102

    Mitigation of dynamic combustion instability is one of the most difficult engineering challenges facing NASA and industry in the development of new continuous-flow combustion systems such as the combustion chambers in liquid-fueled rocket engines (LREs). Combustion instabilities are spontaneous, self-sustaining oscillations that tie the combustor acoustics to the combustion reaction itself. These ...

  7. Composite Repair System

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: T1202

    GTL has developed an innovative composite repair methodology known as the Composite Repair System (CRS). In this phase I effort, CRS is being developed for the repair of damaged induced in thin-laminate composite cryotanks. In applying CRS to damaged composite structures, the required level of structural capacity is recovered to within a predetermined percentage of its original performance after ...

  8. Prediction and Control of Selective Laser Melting Product Microstructure

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1204

    Despite the rapid commercialization of additive manufacturing technology such as selective laser melting, SLM, there are gaps in models for material microstructure and property prediction that slow qualification and certification. Improvements in coupling microstructure prediction models to local process conditions, validation, and control of material microstructure are required to mature the stat ...
