  1. Ultra Compact, Lightweight, Fast Response Cetane Sensor for Heavy Fuels

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: AF131158

    ABSTRACT: U.S military logistics fuels such as JP-8 and JP-5 are used across the full range of its IC engines, from those adapted from Avgas to Remove Piloted Aircraft (RPA) applications to heavy duty compression ignition engines. Yet unlike commercial diesel fuels, these distillate fuels have no cetane specification, and so vary widely in this key measure of ignition delay. The result can be s ...

  3. Development of a Novel Cryostasis Cocktail for High Subzero Banking of Human Organs

    SBC: Sylvatica Biotech, Inc.            Topic: DHP15013

    The technical objective of this Phase 1 proposal is to develop a non-toxic, multi-component, next generation cryostasis cocktail. We seek to develop a unique, holistic and non-toxic approach to bank human organs for several weeks up to a few months. Our approach is based on using the best strategies employed by freeze-tolerant and hibernating animals in nature and then augmenting them with complem ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Printed Performance Innovations            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Material extrusion 3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing method which utilizes a polymeric monofilanment as a feedstock in the fabrication of 3D objects. The relative simplicity compared to other AM technologies makes it an attractive manufacturing tool, however, characteristics inherent to this 3D printing method (namely air gaps between print rasters) makes it undesirable for the 3D ...

  8. High-Speed Thermal Imaging of In-Service TBC Blades

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF073057

    Under sponsorship of the Air Force SBIR program, the small business Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) is developing an innovative sensor system to map the surface temperature of thermal barrier coated (TBC) turbine blades during operational testing of advanced military jet engines. Temperature mapping is a high priority capability needed to prove ceramic coatings as a reliable means to prevent bl ...

  10. Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis Capability for Gas Turbine Component Design

    SBC: AERODYNAMIC SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF073054

    The drumbeat for higher efficiency gas turbine engines is driving new designs capable of operating at higher temperatures and pressure ratios, in fewer stages, and with higher airfoil loads.   These conditions pose a great challenge for turbomachinery designers.  They must now accurately predict airfoil metal temperatures to design effective cooling schemes that counter the high external gas te ...
