  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. Novel, Optimal, Physics-Based Reduced Order Models for Nonlinear Aeroelasticity

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT03

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order nonlinear aeroelastic models for multidisciplinary/multi-fidelity optimization problems. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed based upon the mathematical formalism of optimal prediction theory and a novel implementation of a filtered harmonic balance solution met ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Nanodielectrics with Nonlinear Response for High Power Microwave Generation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF08T030

    The proposed barium strontium titanate (BST) nanodielectric devices will combine some of the best features of bulk and thin-film based tunable dielectrics: low microwave losses, high tunability at high fields, the potential for low operating voltages, and less temperature dependent dielectric response. The miniaturization of devices and reduction of insertion losses requires developments of mater ...

  5. Improved Soft Magnetic Materials for High Power Density Electrical Machines

    SBC: Spang and Company            Topic: AF08T031

    CMU and Magnetics, A Division of Spang and Co. have developed a new high-saturation induction, high-temperature nanocomposite alloy for high-power inductors. This material has FeCo nanocrystals with an A2 or B2 structure embedded in an amorphous matrix. Field annealing resulted in a linear B-H response with a relative permeability of 1400, constant up to fields of 1.2 T. The material was used in ...

  6. 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) ...

  7. Heat Transfer Prediction in Transitional Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF08BT13

    Our Phase I program will extend and validate a high-speed engineering transitional model (ETM) using new CUBRC data sets (such as HIFIRE-1) of interest to the Air Force. The ETM is responsive to tunnel noise and wall heating, and predicts the overshoot in heat transfer observed in transitional data. The model solves PDEs for transition onset as well as for an intermittency parameter that blends th ...

  9. A Toolkit for Deployable Best Practices

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: OSD08T002

    Discovery Machine, Inc. is partnered with Pennsylvania State University to produce a best practices capture system that goes beyond the storage and dissemination of lessons learned. The proposed system will leverage warfighters’ specific knowledge as deployable knowledge assets. These knowledge assets will be executable best practices that can be embedded in job aids and training systems. Th ...

  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 ...
