  1. Innovative Low-cost, In-situ Consolidation Head for Complex Geometry Thermoplastic Fiber Placement

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08135

    Accudyne proposes a SBIR program, endorsed by Sikorsky, Cytec Engineered Materials, and NASA-LaRC, to develop a cost-effective thermoplastic automated tow placement (ATP) process and demonstrate it by fabricating and testing a complex contoured skin (Phase 1) and a CH-53K rotorcraft lower cabin or ramp skin (Phase 2). The process employs in situ consolidation, avoiding the autoclave. The targete ...

  5. FADEC Cooling Using High Temperature Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF073049

    The Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) controls engine operation. It is historically mounted on the engine case to minimize the routing length of the sensor and actuator wiring. The FADEC must be maintained below 63°C, while the environment can be as hot as 170°C. The current design uses fuel to cool the FADEC, however, this often limits the allowable ground or flight idle time bef ...

  6. Dropwise Condensation on Hydrophobic Wick Structures

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP7

    The proposed SBIR project will develop an innovative heat transfer mechanism involving dropwise condensation promoted by a non-wetting self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on a porous metal wick. Dropwise condensation on a bare surface has shown the ability to increase condensation heat transfer coefficients by orders of magnitude over film condensation. By condensing on a wick, heat transfer coefficien ...

  7. Fast Response Fabric Test Setup and Dynamic Fabric Model for BURNSIM

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF071025

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will develop a Fast Thermal Response Fabric Test Setup for various thermal hazard scenarios involving convection (hot gas impingement by the jet engine exhaust), radiation (fire) and combination of convection and radiation (post-crash fire of aircraft, fire flash or bomb blast). The fabric test setup will (i) measure the thermal response of various clothin ...
