  2. Certification Modeling for Composites with Voids and Wrinkles for Engines and Structures

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF161129

    This proposal aims at developing a material agnostic modeling and analysis capability to help understand the genesis of voids and wrinkles during the processing and curing of fibrous composites. It also develops a hierarchical framework to investigate the effects of these micromechanics defects on the interlaminar strength and fatigue life of curved composite structures. The overall effort is cate ...

  7. Developing Aluminum-Based Metallic Glass Alloys for use in the Additive Manufacture of High-Toughness Aerospace Components

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: AF173014

    The additive manufacture of metal components from powder feedstocki.e. the net-shape, three-dimensional forming of a component, layer by layer, from a computer filehas gained popularity in the last nearly three decades, evolving from a method of rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. These methods are inherently far-from-equilibrium and present a significant, economical method to fabricate bulk ...

  10. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...
