  2. Surface Engineering Technologies for Improved Gear Efficiency

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: A12022

    The overall goal of this project is to develop an optimized surface texture process in order to maximize the efficiency of rolling/sliding contacts such as gears. Development of this high efficiency, rolling/sliding surface will be guided by Sentient's unique combination of modeling capabilities in the area of mixed-EHL contacts, scuffing, and contact fatigue life prediction. Phase I wi ...

  3. Advanced Seal Technology for Helicopter Drive System Application

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: A12076

    Gearbox seal wear and leakage is a major source of maintenance and downtime for rotorcraft. Sentient will use our advanced tribology modeling technology to evaluate coatings and surface texturing processes for carbon face seals and provide a generalized modeling approach that can replace physical testing of seals. These models will be used to evaluate several rotorcraft seal designs proposed by ou ...

  4. Multi-functional Integrated Drive System Sensor(MIDSS) for Rotorcraft

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: A12098

    Sentient will be developing a Smart DigitalClone Sensor for application to rotorcraft drivetrains and other rotating components on high value systems. This technology is enabled by our DigitalClone Ground Truth model, developed through Navy and Army SBIR funding and validated with multiple OEM partners. This technology predicts the behavior of the drivetrain from physics based model and merges thi ...

  5. Fatigue Crack Initiation Prediction Tool for Rotorcraft Spiral Bevel Gears

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: A10169

    Current gearbox life estimation techniques commonly underplay the significance of gear tooth surface fatigue due to the complexity of the phenomenon involved. The Phase I program successfully demonstrated the feasibility of utilizing advanced modeling techniques to predict the onset and propagation of surface and bending fatigue in spiral bevel gears, including an analysis of mixed-elastohydrodyna ...

  6. Deep Focus, Multi-Zone Inspection Capability for Automated Acoustic Microscope Inspections in the Field

    SBC: OKOS SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: A09114

    Aging and newer composite aircraft fleets have led to the need for advanced damage detection systems. Inspections for damage in the field are limited due to equipment capability, size/weight, automation challenges, human error and disassembly issues. A portable, lightweight, robust inspection system powered by an user-friendly, automated software system, with remote scanning capability, could imp ...
