  1. Vinyl Ester Compatible High-Modulus Fiber System for Composite Laminates

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04094

    An aqueous-based finish (sizing) was developed in Phase I to improve the carbon/vinyl ester interfacial bond. The finish is composed of a reactive coupling agent, a low viscosity vinyl ester resin, a free radical inhibitor, and a surfactant. The reactive finishes substantially improved the carbon/vinyl ester interface compared to unsized or FOE sized materials. Failure mode analysis shows that ...

  2. High Temperature Finishes/Sizings for Polyimide Matrix Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04251

    New high-temperature sizings are needed to improve the properties and durability of carbon/polyimide composites. Compatibility with weaving and braiding operations and improved wetting during prepregging or resin infusing polyimide resin is also needed. Achieving these characteristics will result in reducing life cycle costs for jet engine composites through better property translation, reduced ...

  3. Finishing Process to Improve Interfacial Bonding in SiC/BMI Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05025

    High-temperature (HT) polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are desired for many aerospace and military applications. Silicon carbide (SiC) fibers provide a potentially attractive reinforcement for HT PMCs for applications ranging from propulsion systems to structures for the orbiting space plane. The sizings routinely added to commercial SiC fibers are not compatible with the new HT matrix resins. ...

  4. Phosphorous-Containing Epoxy Resins for Room Temperature VARTM

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N06T017

    The Navy intends to start using a significant quantity of composite structures in surface ship construction in an effort to decrease costs as well as to reduce the visibility of the ships to radar. The large size of the target structures necessitates the use of low temperature, non-autoclave processing techniques such as Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM). In the recent past, most m ...

  5. High Performance Heat Spreaders for High Heat Flux Power Electronic Modules

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N03055

    The addition of advanced power electronics, radar, armor and weapons systems will significantly increase the thermal load onboard the Navy’s future warships. Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Alstom Power Conversion and American Competitiveness Institute (ACI), will develop a high performance oscillating flow heat spreader technology for cooling of high power electronics th ...

  6. VCHP Heat Exchanger for Passive Thermal Management of a Fuel Cell Reforming Process

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05041

    A key component of the Navy fuel cell system is the reformer, which converts diesel fuel into methane for consumption by the fuel cell. Reaction temperatures are critical to proper function of the reformer. Reaction temperatures are currently regulated by valves in the process gas streams. These valves require power, consume space, increase pressure drop, and are hindering tight integration and pa ...

  7. Aerodynamic/Structural Mistuning Technologies for Assessing IBR/Blisk Repairs

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: N06T015

    New technologies for assessing how blending affects structural and aerodynamic mistuning will be developed using the combined strengths of Blade Diagnostics Corporation and Duke University. BDC has developed an approach for identifying aerodynamic mistuning from engine data that will be further developed under this STTR. Duke will develop new methods for computing the effect of blending on the a ...

  8. Single Crystal Piezoelectric Tonpilz Elements for Small Footprint, High Power Acoustic Sensors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N04T033

    The objective of the Phase II program is to demonstrate that single crystal piezoelectrics are a viable approach for small footprint, broadband and high power acoustic sensors. The objective will begin by down selecting between potential high performance compositions based on the technological merits (likelihood of achieving >100% bandwidth, required source level, electrical power requirements, e ...

  9. Expanded Operating Domain Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06T034

    For this Phase I STTR program, TRS proposes to investigate the synthesis of new single crystal piezoelectric compositions that will operate at higher temperature, higher electric field and/or higher stress than current state-of-the-art PMN-PT single crystals. PMN-PT single crystals are readily available for certain applications, however a broader operating range would allow for greater device des ...

  10. Cost-Effective Fabrication of Piezoelectric Single Crystals Device Elements

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06083

    For the proposed work, TRS Technologies, Inc., in collaboration with The Penn State Electro-optics Center (EOC), and Dr. David J. Quesnel at the University of Rochester will investigate increasing the yield of damage minimized or damage free piezoelectric single crystals by establishing an optimal parameter matrix for PMN-PT crystal machining involved in wafer and element processing (slicing, lapp ...
