  1. Viscous Cartesian Flow Solver with AMR Capabilities for Automated Flow Simulation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T008

    The goal of this project is to develop and leverage the novel Normal Ray Refinement (NRR) methodology investigated in Phase I, and to apply it to an efficient and robust prototype adaptive Cartesian solver for automated simulations of viscous flows. The NRR approach will provide a substantial reduction in the number of grid points in viscous boundary layers and will employ adaptive normal ray plac ...

  2. Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

    SBC: INTRAMICRON INC            Topic: N07T027

    In the Phase I study, IntraMicron found that Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) increased effective thermal conductivity by 3~12 times, improved selectivity and product yield, and significantly reduced the Balance of Plant (BOP) compared with packed beds; Ceramatec prepared novel catalysts for highly selective jet fuel production and designed a FTS modular reactor with fast external heat tran ...

  3. An Integrated Optimization System for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters rely on technological equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. This equipment increases the capabilities of warfighters but also adds to their weight burden. This excess load could cause significant stress on the musculoskeletal system and lead to physiological deficits. The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a system-level opti ...

  4. Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth Atmosphere

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T019

    The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Moreover, hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, excitation of vibrational level of molecules, nonequilibrium dissociation, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with proper domain decompositio ...

  5. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Polaris Sensor Technologies is proposing to use quantum dot technology that has been  recently developed which has the ability to tune the spectral response of a sensor in real-time.   In the Phase I we will study the feasibility of integrating such a focal plane to either fixed or adaptive polarization capability.  The adaptive polarization capability would be based on dynamically controllabl ...

  6. Advanced data mining tool for feature detection in turbulent flow simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T017

    While DNS of complex flow phenomena is a routine practice nowadays, the analysis tools lack the sophistication to utilize the abundance of data generated, for they are devoid of physics-based data extraction and feature-detection protocols. The current effort proposes an automated and intelligent co-processing data-mining framework, in the form of an API, that detects and tracks flow features of s ...

  7. Development of Novel Polynitrogen-based High–performance Solid Propellants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    In this STTR program, CFDRC, in collaboration with the University of Idaho, proposes to develop some novel high-performance polynitrogen energetic materials for propellant applications. The proposed materials contain amine substituted tetrazole-based heterocyclic cations. In order to enhance the energy content and stability further, they are combined with energetic anions. These anions will have ...

  8. Electro Optic Avionic Advanced Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) Algorithm Development to Enhance the Lethality of Interceptors Against Maneuveri

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T003

    Electro-Optical Seekers that utilize a novel GNC Particle Flow processes may better address maneuvering targets and improve track and discrimination functions over traditional solutions. Particle flow processes track objects by estimating the global motion as a function of time. Traditional tracking algorithms using Kalman filters or particle filters have been proposed for finite dimensional repre ...

  9. Dynamically Tunable Metamaterials

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: A09AT002

    The technology, theory and fabrication of artificial materials and metamaterials have seen impressive progress in the last few years, and various applied fields have benefited of the great flexibility of electromagnetic response that metamaterials may provide at microwaves, infrared (IR) and/or optical frequencies. Negative-refractive and zero-permittivity metamaterials have indeed been proposed f ...
