  1. Physics-Based Identification, Modeling and Management Infrastructure of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The proposed research program aims to develop a physics-based identification, modeling and management infrastructure for aeroelastic limit-cycle oscillations. This infrastructure will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as validated and verified by available experimental data bases, and will include (1) rapid flutter boundary determination for a wide ran ...

  2. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  3. Expanded Operating Domain Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06T034

    Single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics, PMN-PT, have shown great promise for broad bandwidth sonar transducers. However, the benefits of PMN-PT are somewhat counterbalanced by its maximum temperature limitation (~80 to 95°C), low coercive field (~2kV/cm) and low mechanical quality factor (60-80) for compact, high power and high duty cycle applications. The new crystal compositions with expanded op ...

  4. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  5. Accurate Computational Prediction of Headed Plume Characteristics Emanating from Non-Conventional Exit Shapes in a Cross Wind Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T001

    A Phase I program is proposed which lays the groundwork for validation of CFD to accurately model heated exhaust plume discharge from non-conventional exit configurations into low-speed crosswinds. A key component of the Phase I effort is development of a detailed experimental plan to acquire high-fidelity CFD validation data for heated plumes in more complex low-speed flows. The sensitivity of pl ...

  6. Inlet Design and Performance for Supersonic Cruise/Hypersonic Operation Vehicles

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T011

    Our proposal addresses the enhancement of design capabilities for supersonic inlets using advanced CFD methodology integrated with efficient design-optimization procedures in an automated, GUI driven framework. Three-dimensional CFD solvers, coupled with design optimization techniques, can now reliably refine initial geometries to produce robust, high performance inlet designs accounting for comp ...

  7. Autonomous UAV Aerodynamic Performance Analysis for the Near-Ship Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T004

    The proposed research program aims to develop an efficient, high-fidelity simulation tool for ship-board flight testing of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that provides a computational testbed for UAV design, autonomous control system design, and UAV/Ship integration analysis. The envisioned flight simulation approach will employ a library of existing high fidelity ship airwake datasets generated ...

  10. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    Electron Energy Corporation and University of Delaware propose to develop multiphase nanocomposite magnets with room temperature maximum energy product potentially up to 100 MGOe for high temperature applications. Multiphase nanocomposite magnets could take the advantage of the extremely high coercivity of SmCo alloys, the high saturation magnetization and moderate intrinsic coercivity of other ha ...
