  1. Modeling Unsteady Cavitation Effects and Dynamic Loads in Cryogenic Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A406

    There currently are no analytical or CFD tools that can reliably predict unsteady cavitation dynamics in liquid rocket turbopumps. Cavitation effects, particularly at low-flow, off-design conditions, generate large amplitude pressure fluctuations that result in performance loss, and may interact with other components to generate damaging system-wide instabilities. The innovation proposed here is ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Thermal Management of Superconducting Electromagnets in VASIMR Thrusters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: F701

    The Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket (VASIMR) engine currently being developed at NASA Johnson is an attractive technology for minimizing transit time and crew harm during future space exploration missions. One of the critical challenges in developing a flight engine is thermal management of the high-temperature, superconducting electromagnets used to constrain and accelerate the pl ...

  5. Lightweight, High-Temperature Radiator Panels

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: F309

    Lightweight, high-temperature radiators are needed for future, high-efficiency power conversion systems for Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEP). Creare has developed flexible radiators that are extremely lightweight, stowable in small volumes, and deployable with small forces, but are limited by materials to temperatures below 350 K. These novel radiators incorporate integral micrometeorite protect ...

  6. 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 ...

  9. RECORDING PILOT EYE MOVEMENT INFORMATION ON A DIGITAL FLIGHT DATA RECORDER

    SBC: AMERIGENICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE MODERN DIGITAL FLIGHT DATA RECORDER (DFDR) PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY TO CAPTURE IN-FLIGHT DATA NEVER POSSIBLE WITH THE OLDER ANALOG "TIN-FOIL" TYPE RECORDER. ADDITIONALLY, THE DFDR PERMITS SOPHISTICATED DATA REDUCTION AND CORRELATION OF NUMEROUS PARAMETERS. ALTHOUGH THE DRDR IS PRIMARILY ORIENTED TOWARD ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION, ITS HIGH CAPACITY EXTENDS ITS USEFULNESS BEYOND THAT INTO THE DOMAIN ...

  10. MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPHY FOR REAL-TIME COMPUTER CONTROL

    SBC: AMERIGENICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A VARIETY OF MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED IN RECENT YEARS IN AN ATTEMPS TO INCREASE THE FLOWOF RELEVANT INFORMATION BETWEEN THE SYSTEM AND OPERATOR, ANDALLEVIATE THE NEED FOR COMPLEX, PROGRAMMER-ORIENTED INPUTS THROUGH THE USE OF USER-FRIENDLY WORKSTATIONS. THESE CONCEPTS HAVE CONCENTRATED ON THE PRESENTATION, SELECTION, OR DISPLAY ASPECTS OF THE INTERFACE. AN ASPECT OF INTER ...
