  9. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: L J ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: The main issue with the development of a reliable constitutive model for explosive materials and concretes is the lack of a fundamental understanding of the evolution of 3-D microstructure and damage in these materials when they are subjected to multi-axial loading under confinement conditions. The main technical challenges are determining the 3-D microstructure and damage evolution pro ...

  10. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (people and/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, such systems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The aco ...
