  1. Multiple High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Metal Additive Manufacturing Process Development

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1204

    Despite the rapid commercialization of additive manufacturing technology such as selective laser melting, SLM, there are gaps in process modeling and material property prediction that contribute to slow and costly process development, process qualification and product certification. To address these gaps, CFDRC and our partner Dr. Kevin Chou, University of Alabama, will develop multiple computatio ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Compact Sensor for Isotope and Trace Gas Analysis

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T801

    We propose to develop and demonstrate a new sensor platform for isotope and trace-gas analysis that is appropriate for future planetary missions. Among other applications, the technology can enable the collection of isotope ratio data in support of the search for evidence of life within the solar system. Current limitations to in-situ isotope measurements will be overcome by utilizing a capillar ...

  7. 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 ...
