  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. A Novel Microfluidic Device for Fully Automated Extraction of RNA from Cell Cultures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: B203

    Obtaining high quality, intact RNA from cells is an ubiquitous need in the pursuit of space biology. Our overall objective is to develop and commercialize a microfluidics based miniaturized platform (MED-RNA) that can fully automate the complex process of RNA isolation. Starting from harvested whole mammalian cells in a culture medium, MED-RNA will lyse, capture, and isolate RNA content for later ...

  5. A Novel Radiation Shielding Material

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: B306

    Radiation shielding simulations showed that epoxy loaded with 10-70% polyethylene would be an excellent shielding material against GCRs and SEPs. Milling produced an elemental boron coating on the polyethylene particles suitable for protecting against low energy neutrons. For up to 30 volume percent particle loading of the composite there was the near random distribution of particles needed to p ...

  6. Automated Computational Fluid Dynamics Design With Shape Optimization

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: A405

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used as an analysis tool to help the designer gain greater understanding of the fluid flow phenomena involved in the components being designed. The next step in the design process is to modify the design to improve the components performance, typically performed manually by the designer in a trial and error fashion. The innovations proposed herein will provide ...

  7. Carbon Nanotube Based Electric Propulsion Thruster with Low Power Consumption

    SBC: XINTEK, INC.            Topic: A502

    Field emission electric propulsion (FEEP) thrusters have gained considerable attention for spacecrafts disturbance compensation because of excellent characteristics. The application of current FEEP has been slow in developing mainly caused by high specific power, which limit the milli-Newton thruster development due to insufficient onboard power. Dramatic field improvement from nanometer carbon ...

  8. Cryogenic Cooling System for Zero-Venting Storage of Supercritical Air Packs

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: F302

    Supercritical air at cryogenic temperature is an attractive source of breathing air because of its very high density and low pressure. However, heat leak into the cryogenic tank causes the stored air to expand and vent, thus limiting the storage life of a charged system. We propose to develop a storage system for supercritical air packs that provides cryogenic cooling that will enable long-term ...

  9. Effect of Ambipolar Potential on the Propulsive Performance of the GDM Plasma Thruster

    SBC: Reisz Engineers            Topic: T801

    The Gasdynamic Mirror (GDM) thruster is an electric propulsion device, without electrodes, that will magnetically confine a plasma with such density and temperature as to make the ion-ion collision mean free path much shorter than its length, but the macroscopic time scale is smaller than the characteristic time for electron-ion equilibrium. So, the electrons and ions have different temperatures a ...

  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 ...
