  3. In Situ Evaluation of Composite Structural Performance in Presence of High Stress/Strain Gradients using Multiaxis Fiber Grating Strain Sensors

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    In order to measure multi-axis strain fields and strain field gradients interior to composite materials, it is necessary to be able to measure both transverse axes of strain and axial strain. In addition, these sensors should be capable of measuringstrain gradients. Blue Road Research has developed a multi-axis fiber optic grating sensor that can be used to meet these requirements. This proposa ...

  7. Photoactivated Naphthalimide Compounds for Tissue Bonding

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    Identifying crack initiation in an aircraft structure through acoustic emission monitoring has been extensively used to predict the onset of damage. Currently, this technique is only applicable to external tests, as it requires ultrasonic transducers, noteasily embedded into the structure. There is a need for in-situ acoustic emission monitoring to further enable effective and objective maintena ...

  8. WeatherWeb Sub-Web Meteorological Sensor Array by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL)

    SBC: CLOUD CAP TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    The Office of Naval Research has recognized that small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are particularly useful for obtaining meteorological and environmental observations in the battle space. The Aerosonde UAV has for several years provided meteorologicalobservations to the global weather community, and in February of 1999 provided observations in support of Second Fleet wargames. The meteorologic ...
