  1. Probabilistic Design of Fuel Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF161076

    Modern military aircraft have major thermal challenges as a result of significant increases to on-board heat generation combined with reduced ability to transfer heat to the ambient environment.Adaptive power and thermal management systems are being explored to mitigate the thermal restrictions. These systems rely on fuel as a primary heat sink but analysis of system performance is based on standa ...

  2. Synthesis of HAN and HEHN in a Continuous Mix Process

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Production of hydroxylamine nitrate (HAN) and hydroxyethyl hydrazine nitrate (HEHN) is of great concern for the manufacture of AF-315E. Current stockpiles of heritage ingredients held by AFRL are being depleted and those manufacturers are no longer in exi

  6. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project will evaluate the feasibility of an innovative optical sizer for estimating drop sizes in sprays that have very small drops. The technique is based on the NIST provisional patent (application number 62/358,264). The NIST invention sorts particles by size over the range of 10nm to 10μm. Drop sizing is achieved in these sprays using an intense ...

  10. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD).High dither conditions, caused by constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator components.The Air Force and co ...
