  1. Advanced Unsteady Turbulent Combustion Simulation Capability for Space Propulsion Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: T901

    The innovation proposed here is a high performance, high fidelity simulation capability to enable accurate, fast and robust simulation of unsteady turbulent, reacting flows involving propellants of relevance to NASA (GOX/GH2, LOX/LH2 and LOX/LCH4). The key features of this proposed capability are: (a) Hybrid RANS-LES (HRLES) methodology, and (b) flamelet modeling for turbulent combustion, incorpo ...

  2. AERODYNAMIC HEATING UPGRADE OF THE PARABOLIZED NAVIER-STOKES(PNS) CODE

    SBC: Remtech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL ENHANCE THE CAPABILITY OF THE AIR FORCE PARABOLIZED NAVIER STOKES CODE (AFWAL PNS CODE) TO PREDICT SKIN FRICTION AND HEAT TRANSFER TO HIGH SPEED FLIGHT VEHICLES. THE CURRENT PREDICTION TECHNIQUES REQUIRE EXTREMELY ACCURATE CALCULATIONS OF VELOCITY AND TEMPERATURE IN THE VICINITY OF THE WALL. THE EFFORT HERE WILL REPLACE THIS PROCEDURE BY USING INTEGRAL MOMENTUM AND ENERGY EQUATION ...

  3. A Miniaturized Sensor for Microbial Monitoring of Spacecraft Water Environment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X203

    Accurate real-time microbial monitoring of water environment is of paramount importance to crew health as well as to ensure proper functioning and control of the life support system during space exploration. The existing methods are time-consuming and labor-intensive, and the devices used are bulky, consumable-hungry, and ill-suited for spacecraft deployment. We propose to develop and demonstrate ...

  4. AN ALL-METAL COMPACT HEAT EXCHANGER FOR SPACEBORNE CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY (HENCE, INPUT POWER REQUIREMENTS) OF REVERSE-BRAYTON CRYOCOOLERS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO THE THERMAL EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HEAT EXCHANGERS. APPLICATIONS FOR THESE CRYOCOOLERS IN SPACE DICTATE THAT THESE HEAT EXCHANGERS BE AS SMALL AND LIGHT AS POSSIBLE. TO DATE, ONLYHEAT EXCHANGERS EMPLOYING ORGANIC MATERIALS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE HIGH THER ...

  5. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development efforts are severely limited by expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device that reproduces the physiological ...

  6. COBALT-DOPED MAGNESIUM FLUORIDE LASER FOR REMOTE SENSING

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR PORTION OF THE EFFORT WILL BE TO DEVELOP A CO:MGF2 LASER SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR USE IN POSSIBLE NASA MISSIONS. MOST OF THE WORK ON CO:MGF2 LASERS HAS INVOLVED THE USE OF LIQUID NITROGEN FOR COOLING OF THE CRYSTAL, A MAJOR INCONVENIENCE FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WOULD, BY A COMBINATION OF THEORETICAL ANDEXPERIMENTAL WORK, INVESTIGATE OPERATION OF THE CO:MGF2 LASER AT ...

  7. Compact Vacuum Pump for Titan Lander Missions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S109

    For a number of years Creare has developed, fabricated, and tested highly miniaturized, high vacuum pumps specifically designed for mass spectrometers used on NASA Mars missions. These pumps would also be useful on other missions to planets and satellites with atmosphere, such as Titan, as well as terrestrial applications on Earth. In order to allow these high vacuum pumps to operate in high-pr ...

  8. Computational Tool for Coupled Simulation of Nonequilibrium Hypersonic Flows with Ablation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X901

    The goal of this SBIR project is to develop a predictive computational tool for the aerothermal environment around ablation-cooled hypersonic atmospheric entry vehicles. This tool is based on coupling the relevant physics models to the LeMANS code for hypersonic flows and to the MOPAR code for material response, both developed by the University of Michigan. In Phase I of this project, we developed ...

  9. Energy-Based Acoustic Measurement System for Rocket Noise

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: O202

    Accurate estimates of the vibroacoustic loading placed on space vehicles and payloads during launch require knowledge of the rocket noise source properties. Given the extreme nature of acoustic environments near the plume, data sufficient to characterize the noise source region have been difficult to acquire. Without these data, structures may be designed to handle insufficient or excessive vibroa ...

  10. FEASIBILITY STUDY OF A NEXT GENERATION VPPA WELDING CONTROL SYSTEM

    SBC: General Digital Industries Inc            Topic: N/A

    NEW APPROACHES TO AUTOMATIC CONTROL ARE NEEDED IF VARIABLE POLARITY PLASMA ARC (VPPA) WELDING IS TO REALIZE ITS FULL POTENTIAL AS A RELIABLE, REPEATABLE, COST EFFECTIVE PROCESS.PRESENT VPPA CONTROL SYSTEMS ARE FIRST GENERATION, ELEMENTARY COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEMS THAT DEPEND ON PROGRAMS WHICH ARE EXPERIMENTALLY DERIVED, AND DO NOT COMPENSATE FOR ANOMOLIES INJECTED BY TOOLING, PART, AND OTHER INDEPEN ...
