  1. A General Solver Framework for Radiative Heat Transfer Models in Combustion Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    ABSTRACT:Modern combustion systems such as gas-turbine combustors and rocket engines are characterized by high operating pressures and temperatures due to increased power density. Thermal radiation has significant impact on both, the heat fluxes at the wall and physical phenomena controlling the combustion process. The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a general, computationally efficie ...

  2. A Mesoscale Modeling Tool for Heterogeneous Explosives with Accurate Multi-Physics Models and Detailed Chemical Kinetics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD09W04

    In the proposed SBIR project, CFDRC will develop an efficient, high-fidelity computational tool to simulate compaction wave propagation and the ensuing multi-physics phenomena in heterogeneous explosives (HEs), including the effects of shock wave on external targets. Physics that will be accurately modeled include: (1) Resolution of subgrain-size hot spots; (2) Granular deformation and packing du ...

  3. A Neck Injury Assessment Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13009

    The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop new injury criteria, model based risk assessment methodology, and a software tool to assess neck injury risk from head supported mass (HSM) loading. Based on the foundation of Phase I feasibility studies, the proposed Phase II work will focus on model enhancement, extension and validation, risk assessment, and software integration and tes ...

  4. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development programs are severely limited by the expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from the in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference in testing from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device for quantitati ...

  5. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods for stem cell isolation are time-consuming, costly, and labor-intensive, and ill-suited for point of care applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a high-throughput, non-invasive, microfluidic stem cell analyzer to enable a rapid isolation of high-quality stem cell products from clinically relevant samples. Our technology enables significan ...

  6. Adaptive Cartesian/Immersed Interface Methodology for Micro Air Vehicle Flow Control with Electro-Hydrodynamic Forces

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF093104

    The design of future Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) requires detailed understanding of unsteady flows around flexible lifting surfaces with strong interactions between separation and transition at low Reynolds numbers. Since flexure often involves large deformations exceeding the Kolmogorov scale by orders-of-magnitude, methods employing moving and deforming computational grids may require excessive re ...

  7. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...

  8. Advanced Experimental Design and Modeling and Simulation for Testing Large Format Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF151173

    ABSTRACT:nou Systems proposes an innovative analysis and test methodology for testing space-based high-resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) focal plane arrays (FPAs). Current space sensor test facilities are incapable of fully testing state-of-the-art high-resolution WFOV sensors without infrastructure modifications. The test methodology described in this proposal focuses on testing only a subset ...

  9. Advanced Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT03

    Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...

  10. Attack Surface Mutation

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: AF093049

    When attackers decide they are going to try to attack a network, the first task they set out to do is research. They research and gather information about the network and its structure for possible inclusion in a future attack. All of the research and information gathered will still be valid if the network structure remains static. The proposed Service Distributor (SerDis) will provide a framewor ...
