  1. A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection 3/19/2018 The US energy transport pipeline system is a longstanding distribution network with most of its still standing pipes being installed between the 1950s–1970s. Due to degradation mechanisms, such as embrittlement, capable of causing a two-fold reduction in fracture toughness, pipe rupture is a major risk. Current nondestructive ins ...

  2. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume ...

  3. Ultra-Compact Condenser with Built-in Air Flow Headers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF173006

    Next-generation aircraft thermal management systems require advanced compact, lightweight condensers to reduce the overall size and mass of high-capacity vapor compression systems. To this end, Creare proposes to develop an ultra-compact, lamination-stack condenser with built-in air flow headers to substantially reduce the overall condenser assembly size and mass. The condenser has a unique config ...

  4. Development of bulk metallic glass components for spacecraft applications using thermoplastic forming

    SBC: Supercool Metals LLC            Topic: AF173014

    Ever increasing demands on space, aerospace and defense applications require non-traditional approaches to materials and processing methods. Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) are unique materials that combine properties of ultrahigh strength metals with processability of thermoplastics, which is often paired with other attractive attributes, such as high resilience, fracture toughness, hardness, and co ...

  5. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  6. Instant k-Space Tomography for Spatial-Spectral Monitoring

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT013

    The Army is frequently forced to operate in hostile climates. Heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust storms can inhibit the performance of tracking technologies such as mid-wave infrared cameras. In such conditions, Army early warning systems are blinded and put personnel and assets at risk.There is a specific need for a degraded visual environment (DVE) penetrative target tracking solution.Radio frequen ...

  7. Hypersonic Dimensional Scanning System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181012

    Ablative coatings for hypersonics are tested at facilities such as the AEDC Range G and the Holloman High Speed Test Track. A test article is accelerated to velocity up to 18,000 ft/s in a relevant atmosphere and travels up to 10,000 ft. It is important to measure the coating erosion at multiple discrete points along the trajectory to characterize non-linear ablation response.Existing measurement ...

  8. Efficient Hydrodynamic Ram Test Chamber

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181014

    Ballistic impact on an aircraft fuel tank skin generates a pressure pulse in the fuel that can cause catastrophic structural damage by hydrodynamic ram (HRAM). The Air Force RAMGUN facility simulates this impulsive hydrodynamic loading for experimental testing of candidate structural joints. A projectile fired by a gas gun impacts one end of a water-filled chamber, launching a pressure wave that i ...

  9. Robust Fuel Injectors for Combustion Instability Reduction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181026

    Combustion instability is an ongoing concern for military propulsion systems such as augmented gas turbine engines. Augmentor screech can limit the performance of military aircraft, and can cause durability issues or even catastrophic failure if it occurs. Modern augmentors have close-coupled fueling using simple round injectors to minimize manufacturing cost. In a jet-in-crossflow injector, liqui ...

  10. Real-Time Thermal and 3-D Imaging in Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181027

    Despite offering advantages to fields ranging from engine maintenance to engine development, a simple yet accurate system to inspect hot components in operating engines has been elusive due to the challenges of high operating speeds in a harsh environment. In the proposed project, Creare will develop an engine imaging system that will empower its users with real-time surface temperature and 3-D im ...
