  6. DYNAMIC MODEL TESTER

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A DYNAMIC IMPACT TESTER THAT WILL SIMULATE THE PEAK IMPULSE LOADS DEVELOPED IN SABOT/MODEL ASSEMBLIES TO BE USED IN A LARGE LIGHT GAS GUN. THE PHASE I WORK WILL INCLUDE SMALL-SCALE TESTING OF IMPACT LOADING USING AN EXISTING 380-MPA (60,000-PSI) HYDRAULIC PULSE GENERATOR. ANALYTIC MODELING OF THE TESTER AND IMPACT DYNAMICS WILL RESULT IN A DESIGN FOR A RELIABLE MODEL TESTER C ...

  7. COMBUSTION PROCESSES IN SPACE STORABLE LIQUID ROCKET ENGINES

    SBC: Software & Engineering Associa            Topic: N/A

    THE EXHAUST FROM NTO/MMH FUEL RICH GAS GENERATORS (GG) ARE KNOWN TO CONTAIN A LARGE FRACTION OF AMMONIA. THIS PHENOMENON MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO ACTIVELY COOL A ROCKET NOZZLE WALL USING THE ENDOTHERMIC DECOMPOSITION OF AMMONIA. A REALISTIC ANALYSIS OF THIS COMBUSTION PROCESS IS TO BE DEVELOPED WHICH INCLUDES ROCKET NOZZLE FLOW WITH FINITE RATE CHEMICAL KINETICS AND THE TANGENTIAL SLOT INJECTION OF GG ...

  9. NOVEL ABRASIVE-WATERJET TECHNIQUES FOR THE MACHINING OF ISOGRID STRUCTURES

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    ISOGRID STRUCTURES ARE USED IN MANY MISSILE BECAUSE OF THEIR LIGHTWEIGHT AND STIFFNESS CHARACTERISTICS. THESE STRUCTURES ARE COMPLEX AND REQUIRE EXTENSIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES THAT, IN MANY SITUATIONS, ARE COST PROHIBITIVE, AS IN THE CASE OF SMALL ICBMS. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES NOVEL CONCEPTS USING THE ABRASIVE-WATERJET (AWJ) TECHNIQUE. THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMICAL FEASIBILITY OF THIS TECHNIQUE ...

  10. NONCONTACT SMALL DIAMETER BORE GAUGE

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT PEACEKEEPER AND SMALL ICBM GUIDANCE SYSTEMS REQUIRE TOLERANCES ON SFIR (SPECIFIC FORCE INTEGRATING RECEIVER) AND TGG (THIRD GENERATION GYRO) BORES OF 5X10(-6) INCH (125NM). CURRENTLY, THESE BORES ARE INSPECTED USING A MANUALLY LOADED AIR GAUGE. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE OPERATOR TO DAMAGE THESE PYROCERAM BORES WHILE ATTEMPTING TO MEASURE THEM. THE PART MUST THEN BE WORKED OR SCRAPPED.THE DEVE ...
