  1. Improved Life Cycle Management of Airborne Systems Tools

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF151121

    ABSTRACT:The SBIR primary objective will be to show the feasibility of advance modeling for simulating and predicting the surface corrosion leading to fatigue damage. This capability will produce early-life stage models which will enhance state of the art corrosion analysis. The SBIR conceptual modeling method must address small damage, in a corroded microstructure for fatigue crack growth. The me ...

  2. Ultra Short Pulse Laser Beam Director


    Accurate Automation Corporation proposes to develop a system design for an Ultra Short Pulse Laser beam director. The design and analysis will investigate diffractive and non-diffractive beam shapes as well as refractive and reflective laser optics. A high definition video camera along with a laser range finder and video processing will be used to keep the beam director locked onto the target whil ...

  3. UCDS for Augmentor Damping

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: AF151062

    ABSTRACT: Combustion instability (aka thermoacoustic instability) is a significant issue in propulsion systems including augmentors. Oscillations can increase heat transfer to walls 10 fold and cause vibration damage to the propulsion system and the surrounding system. This damage can occur very rapidly. Combustion instability (CI) is challenging to design for due to the complex interactions betw ...

  4. Improved Design Package for Fracture Mechanics Analysis

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141075

    ABSTRACT:The damage tolerance approach is used widely in the aerospace industry and has a physics-based foundation in fracture mechanics. The fatigue crack growth rate can be determined by calculating the SIF (stress intensity factor) and knowing empirically derived material parameters. Similitude is achieved for different loads, different crack sizes, and different crack shapes. The down side to ...
