The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Developing Aluminum-Based Metallic Glass Alloys for use in the Additive Manufacture of High-Toughness Aerospace Components

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: AF173014

    The additive manufacture of metal components from powder feedstocki.e. the net-shape, three-dimensional forming of a component, layer by layer, from a computer filehas gained popularity in the last nearly three decades, evolving from a method of rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. These methods are inherently far-from-equilibrium and present a significant, economical method to fabricate bulk ...

  2. Certification Modeling for Composites with Voids and Wrinkles for Engines and Structures


    This proposal aims at developing a material agnostic modeling and analysis capability to help understand the genesis of voids and wrinkles during the processing and curing of fibrous composites. It also develops a hierarchical framework to investigate the effects of these micromechanics defects on the interlaminar strength and fatigue life of curved composite structures. The overall effort is cate ...
