  5. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT21

    Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of problems and challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal and/or catalytic cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied with coke formation. Coke deposits on combustor and nozzle walls reduce heat ...

  9. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...

  10. New Paradigms in High Pressure Combustion Dynamics Prediction and Control

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT15

    ABSTRACT:In this project we seek to transition major recent developments in the mathematics of model reduction to industrial grade computing applications in liquid rocket combustion instability. From the mathematical side, we are interested in unsteady nonlinear dynamical systems which exhibit limit-cycle behavior and large oscillations and potentially discontinuous solutions. From the application ...
