  1. Development of Magnetostrictive Energy Harvesting of Mechanical Vibration Energy

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N10AT020

    Applied Physical Sciences and the University of Maryland propose to develop a magnetostrictive transducer that harvests electrical energy from shipboard machinery while simultaneously suppressing vibration to improve the ship’s stealth characteristics and thereby improving the performance of hull mounted sonar systems. Analysis performed during the Base Effort will provide an initial design spec ...

  2. External Pipe Sound Pressure Level Sensor

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N10AT016

    Applied Physical Sciences (APS) and the Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory (ARL/PSU) will collaborate in the development of a novel sensor system to measure the low frequency acoustic pressures within a fluid-filled pipe. The proposed concept improves upon the Navy’s current Array Based Acoustic Measurement (ABAM) system for laboratory characterization of full-scale piping ...

  3. Development of Magnetostrictive Energy Harvesting of Mechanical Vibration Energy

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N10AT020

    Energy harvesting devices utilizing magnetostrictive materials are a logical choice for harvesting the high impedance (high force, low displacement) vibrations found aboard Navy ships. Force-based devices, enabled by magnetostrictive materials, can harvest energy over an extremely large bandwidth, approximately ±35 and ±70 Hz currently, making them more desirable in situations aboard Navy ships ...

  4. Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures Subjected to Impulsive Dynamic Loading

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N10AT041

    A software tool for fracture evaluation and load deflection prediction of welded aluminum ship structures subjected to impulsive loading will be developed by enhancing and integrating an existing extended finite element method (XFEM) for dynamic fracture of thin shells in Abaqus. The software package will be able to model arbitrary crack paths as dictated by the physics of the scenario, completely ...

  5. Characterizing the Impact of Control Surfaces Free-Play on Flutter

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10AT003

    Free-play nonlinearity of the control surfaces has a direct impact on aircraft’s dynamic stability characteristics. . It is impossible to design and manufacture a control surface with zero free-play. As control surface free-play increases, tighter limits must be imposed on the aircraft mission capability. Typically, researchers have utilized an oversimplified piecewise-linear torque-rotation rel ...

  6. Dynamic Physical/Data-Driven Models for System-Level Prognostics and Health Management

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N10AT009

    The proposed effort leverages the capabilities of data-driven and physics of failure (PoF) based prognostic techniques for electronic systems by combining them within a hybrid approach. Data-driven and PoF-based techniques both have shortcomings; combining them into a hybrid framework allows using their capabilities in a complementary fashion, and thereby providing a reliable way of prognostics an ...

  7. A Multiscale Modeling and Simulation Framework for Predicting After-Burning Effects from Non-Ideal Explosives

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N10AT002

    The primary objective of the proposed effort is to develop a validated computational tool to predict the afterburning of non-ideal munitions containing metal and hydrocarbon fuels. The activities outlined devise a well-coordinated collaboration among researchers from Reaction Engineering International (REI) and the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB). The activities proposed will build on ...

  8. Complex Event Detection in Video and Communications

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N10AT040

    We will demonstrate the feasibility of detecting tactically meaningful complex events in sensor input streams using an efficient pattern matching technology embodied in the Soar cognitive architecture. Our focus in Phase I will be on video streams, such as those that might be produced by unattended ground sensors or unmanned aerial systems. To reduce risk, we propose devoting a portion of our effo ...

  10. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: SAFETY MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N10AT011

    The objective of this project is to develop a methodology for predicting reaction violence of full-scale munitions in either a fast or slow cook-off scenario. This methodology will use a combination of existing heat transfer models and thermal stimulus simulation tools coupled with an empirical model to be developed from data collected from various lab and subscale experimental hardware. Hardware ...
