  1. Surface Modification of Exfoliated Graphite Nano-Reinforcements

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A205

    Phase I results showed that two surface treatments, oxidative plasma and reactive finishes, are effective means of modifying the surface chemistry of exfoliated graphite nanoflakes. The surface modifications provide a more compatible surface energy for dispersion in polymers and create well-bonded interfaces with the polymer matrix. In order to be cost effective for NASA and commercial applicati ...

  2. Light-Curing Structural Tape for In-Space Repair

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1203

    NASA has numerous requirements for in-space repair capabilities to aid future missions beyond earth orbit. A subset of these requirements is adhesive patch materials that provide permanent or temporary repair of a wide variety of surfaces with minimal surface preparation. Prior work on light (UV and visible) curing composite matrix resins for rigidizing inflatable spacecraft shows that there is ...

  3. Heat Pipe Heat Exchangers with Double Isolation Layers for Prevention of Interpath Leakage

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: B301

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Hamilton Sundstrand, proposes to develop a heat pipe heat exchanger that is low mass and provides two levels of isolation between fluid streams. It has potential applications in thermal control of manned spacecraft and a number of military and commercial equipment and processes. Phase I has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the hea ...

  4. Titanium Loop Heat Pipes for Space Nuclear Radiators

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1004

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop titanium Loop Heat Pipes (LHPs) that can be used in low-mass space nuclear radiators, such as the radiators currently being designed for Project Prometheus, as well as radiators for the lunar and Mars surfaces. LHPs are two phase heat transfer devices that can be embedded in radiator panels. Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. ...

  5. Intermediate Temperature Fluids for Heat Pipes and Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1004

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop heat pipe and loop heat pipe (LHP) working fluids for what is known as the intermediate temperature range, from roughly 500 K to 700 K. Currently, there are no working fluids in this range that can be used in NASA applications, due in part to unknown physical properties and insufficient life test data. The overall objective of ...

  8. Flextensional Microactuators for Large-Aperture Lightweight Cryogenic Deformable Mirrors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: S304

    TRS Technologies proposes large stroke and high precision single crystal flextensional piezoelectric microactuators for cryogenic optic devices such as large aperture deformable mirrors, etc. for future NASA space telescope missions. Single crystal piezoelectrics are attractive because they exhibit 3 to 5 times the strain of conventional piezoelectric ceramics, have very low strain hysteresis, and ...

  9. High Temperature Capacitors for Venus Exploration

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: S202

    High temperature power electronics have become a vital aspect of future designs for power converters in spacecraft, battle zone electric power, satellite power conditioning, and well drilling. The performance of these applications would benefit significantly from materials designed for high temperatures and harsh environmental conditions. NASA's Venus mission has some of the most stringent require ...

  10. Efficient and Accurate Computational Framework for Injector Design and Analysis

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: X701

    CFD codes used to simulate upper stage expander cycle engines are not adequately mature to support design efforts. Rapid and accurate simulations require more versatile grid frameworks to handle complex geometries of multi-element injector configurations. Turbulence models require upgrades to better predict fuel/air mixing with swirl and to predict heat flux. The innovation proposed initiates wor ...
