  5. PROPOSAL TO CONVERT FASTGEN MODELS TO NASTRAN MODELS

    SBC: DYNAMIC ANALYSIS & TESTING ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO WRITE A PROGRAM TO TRANSLATE FASTGEN II INPUT DATA DECKS TO EQUIVALENT NASTRAN BULK DATA DECKS. THE RESULTING FINITE ELEMENT MESH CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO A NASTRAN DATA INPUT DATA DECK TO BE USED FOR NUCLEAR ANALYSIS AND STRESS ANALYSIS. THIS EFFORT WILL INCLUDE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPLETE STATIC 3-52 NASTRAN MODEL AND A COMPLETE STATIC F-16 NASTRAN MODEL.

  7. FEASIBILITY AND DESIGN OF A MICROWAVE WARHEAD

    SBC: Irt Corp            Topic: N/A

    AVAILABILITY OF EXTREMELY HIGH-POWER PULSED MICROWAVE SOURCES AND COMPACT POWER SUPPLY CONCEPTS HAS LEAD TO INCREASING INTEREST IN MICROAVE WEAPONS. BEFORE THE COST PER KILL AND EVENTUAL MILITARY UTLITY OF SUCH WEAPONS CANBE ESTIMATED, AT LEAST THREE MAJOR TECHNICAL ISSUES MUST BE QUANTIFIED AND BOUNDED. THESE ARE THE MICROWAVE VULNERABILITY OF TARGET SOVIET SYSTEMS AND ITS VARIATION WITH FREQUENC ...
