  2. LASER ALLOYING OF PLASMA-DEPOSITED COATINGS FOR PROTECTION AGAINST ATOMIC OXYGEN

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    ATOMIC OXYGEN-INDUCED DEGRADATION OF MATERIALS IN LOW EARTH ORBIT IS A PROBLEM OF GREAT CONCERN IN THE DEPLOYMENT OF SATELLITES, REFLECTORS AND MIRROR AND ANTENNA STRUCTURES. IN PARTICULAR, THE DEGRADATION OF THIN CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE MATERIALS BY ATOMIC OXYGEN RESTRICTS THE OPERATIONAL LIFE AND BATTLE-READINESS OF THIS OTHERWISE STRUCTURALLY ADVANTAGEOUS MATERIAL. ALTHOUGH SEVERAL METHODS ARE ...

  6. CROSS-CORRELATION OPTICAL STRAIN SENSOR FOR WIND TUNNEL TEST INSTRUMENTATION

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    AEROSPACE STRUCTURES/MODELS ARE SUBJECTED TO HIGH TEMPERATURES AND STRONG AERODYNAMIC FORCES UNDER CAREFULLY CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS DURING INSTRUMENTED LABORATORY TESTING. WIND TUNNEL TESTING REQUIRES INSTRUMENTATION WHICH IS RUGGED, RELIABLE, ACCURATE AND PROVIDES TEST DATA QUICKLY TO THE TEST OPERATOR. MEASUREMENTS OF STATIC AND DYNAMIC STRAINS AND PROOF TESTING ON AEROSPACE STRUCTU ...

  7. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...
