  1. New Method for Determination of Acoustic Signatures in Wind Tunnel Testing

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The acoustic signature generated by test articles in high speed wind tunnel tests is difficult to measure due to the high level of background noise created by the wind tunnel flow. A unique research program using microphone arrays is proposed to addressthis issue. The program combines experimental tests and analytical algorithm development to devise a system able to reject the undesirable wind tu ...

  6. Gelled Nanophase Fuel

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "AVEKA, Inc. proposes the use of nanophase aluminum/hydrocarbon slurries produced by its proprietary process with a novel gelling agent to form an inexpensive gelled propellant. AVEKA's Gas Evaporative Reactor (GER) process produces nanophase aluminumslurries in hydrocarbon fluids. These slurries can be gelled easily using a unique, low molecular weight gelling agent. An ability to "melt" these ...

  7. In-Situ Evaluation of Composite Structural Performance in Presence of High Stress/Strain Gradients Using Multi-Axis Fiber Grating Strain Sensors

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    "This Phase II proposal uses multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors to characterize strain fields interior to complex composite materials. Advantages of this approach include the ability to measure transverse strain, transverse strain gradients and axialstrain simultaneously at multiple points along a single fiber line. Models and software will be developed to complement a data base generated t ...

  8. Life Cycle Performance Screening Using Fiber Optic Grating Sensor Systems for Composite Cryogenic tankage

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    "Single and multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors were used to detect damage in a Phase I composite cryogenic tank. Acoustic signatures were collected from multiple fiber grating sensors during impact. Multi-dimensional strain field measures were usedto measure damage remotely through three cryogenic cycles. The first cycle occurred prior to impact and the second and third after two subsequen ...
