  1. In Situ Evaluation of 3-D Woven Composite Structural Performance Using Fiber Optic Sensors

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Three-dimensional textile reinforcement architectures with straight in-plane fibers and optimized through thickness fiber content are considered as efficient solutions for the next generation of light weight, damage tolerant, high strength compositesallowing for cost-effective manufacturing solutions. The 3-D weaving process is gentle to the fibers, thus making automated fiber optic sensor insert ...

  2. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Novel Techniques for Laser Radars


    "Image processing techniques derived from Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are applied to ladar range images to resolve occlded targets. One approach will use model-driven anisotropic diffusion to replace an occluded area with the maximum a priorisurface that is derived from the observable portions of the image. A second approach will align multiple ladar range images taken from different v ...

  10. Time-Exposure Acoustics for Imaging Underground Structures

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a new technique for imaging underground facilities based on the passive monitoring of acoustic emissions from both stationary and moving equipment within such facilities. It is well known that all mechanical devices, such as motors,gears, etc, emit acoustic signals. It is possible to identify an acoustic source based on its noise spectrum. In addition, by monitoring the acou ...
