  1. Buffet Control of the F-22 Using an Enhanced Distributed Actuation System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unsteady buffet forces excite the vertical tails of aircraft flying at high angles of attack and cause excessive stress and vibration in the tail structure. This results in increased fatigue which ultimately reduces aircraft life. It has been shown by ACX that distributed piezoceramics can significantly reduce the buffet loads on the tail structure of an F/A-18. ACX proposes to develop a simila ...

  2. High Cycle Fatigue Testing of Turbine Blades Under Biaxial Loading

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Although technologies derived under the Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) initiative should result in higher performance of gas turbine engines, the durability of engine components continues to be one of the most important design issues which impacts their affordability and robustness. It is currently very difficult to measure or predict the fatigue life of engine com ...

  3. High Temperature III-V Nitride RF Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The III-V nitrides, (Al, In, Ga)N, are promising materials for high temperature, high power and high frequency devices due to the wide bandgaps, high electron saturation velocity and high electronic mobility transistor (HEMT) structures available in this alloy system. These devices would find wide-spread commercial use as power amplifiers in base station transmitters for personal communications ...

  6. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...

  7. Portable Reflectometer

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The AF requires a portable instrument to measure thermal reflectance signatures from target surfaces. In the field, measurements include 1) total integrated scatter; 2) retro-reflected scatter; 3) angular scatter from normal incidense to 75 degrees off-normal; and 4) parallel and perpendicular polarization components of reflectance. Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., (AFR) previously delivered a benc ...

  8. Infrared Spectrometer on a Chip

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared spectroscopy has ong been recognized as an excellent tool for sending and monitoring chemical species and thermal signatures. There is a need for low-cost devices which can be used in these applications. Advanced Fuel Research Inc (AFR) is presently developing a micro-machined graded interference spectral informtion using transform spectrometry, but which requires an array of detectors ...

  10. THE STORAGE AND USE OF COMBUSTILBLE LIQUIDS.

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE STORAGE AND USE OF COMBUSTILBLE LIQUIDS. VARIOUS SCENARIDS ARE POSSIBLE IN WHICH THE LIQUID IS ACCIDENTALLY RELEASED SUCH THAT IS CONTRACTS A HOT SURFACE RESULTING IN A POTENTIAL FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD. THE OPTIMUM DESIGN OF APPROPRIATE SAFETY MEASURES IS SEVERELY HAMPERED BY THE FACT THAT THE THERMAL IGNITION OF LIQUIDS IS A PHENONMENON WHICH IS NOT WELL UNDERSTOOD NOR IS THERE ANY USEFUL E ...
