  1. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  3. Microstructure Informatics for Propagating Uncertainty in Material and Processing to Performance Predictions of AM Titanium Parts

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    During AM of metallic alloys, a material exhibits several complex physical phenomena that impact the spatial distribution of heterogeneous material properties within a built component. Subsequent post-processing alters the already heterogeneous location-specific material properties. This project is to develop a novel methodology for linking the time and length scales of the various physical phenom ...

  4. Advanced, nanostructred low-friction coatings for foil air bearings

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: N16AT005

    During Phase I, we propose to develop nanostructured, low friction thermal sprayed coatings that are able to withstand high dynamic loadings. Additionally, the novel coatings will possess a low friction coefficients in humid air, dried conditions and various greases and lubricants. These novel nanostructured coatings will be manufactured by HVOF spraying of solid lubricants based nanostructured po ...

  6. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Fault Detection, Localization, and Isolation

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT009

    In this phase I we propose to extend our work on MVDC isolation device to include fault detection, and fault localization circuitry. We have previously developed under an SBIR a 6 kVDC, 2000A isolation device that was built and tested in MVDC ship distribution system laboratory at FSU CAPS. In this phase I we propose to use rogowski coils and hall effect probes to detect faults and we propose to a ...

  7. Low-cost Thermal Management Technology for Combat Systems Computers

    SBC: Engineering And Scientific Innovations Inc.            Topic: N16AT014

    Using a fluid dynamic energy separation technique, in combination with thermoelectric generators (TEGs), a unique hybrid cooling system using low grade waste heat is proposed. This system uses the concept of fluid structure interactions and vorticity redistribution to produce large levels of vorticity within working fluid and thereby generate large temperature gradients in the working fluid which ...

  8. Embedded Space Analytics

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N16AT020

    Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to show the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable and efficient graph streaming. EStreaming promotes big ...

  9. Integrated Computational Material Engineering Approach to Additive Manufacturing for Stainless Steel (316L)

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N16AT022

    We are proposing to identify an ICME architecture that will enable the multi-scale modeling of additive manufacturing (AM) process at both the component level as well as at the meso-scale level such that the final part quality and performance can be predicted accurately. At the component level, the proposed ICME framework would help in predicting residual stresses, distortion and the necessary sup ...

  10. Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure Avoidance

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA14T002

    Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of failure in microelectronics, which raises reliability concerns for MDA and its system integrators. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a physics based modeling and testing protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditions to stress ...
