  3. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N14AT002

    A model for structural health measurement is desired that is capable of assessing the accumulated damage and remaining useful life of components post-flight. This model will eliminate the need for load tracking during flight and prevent the additional weight and complexity of components utilized during flight. Safe is partnering with researchers at University of Memphis for this work to relate the ...

  4. Active Combustion Control of Augmentor Dynamics using Robust High-Frequency Energy Deposition

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: N14AT004

    Combustion instability, or screech, occurs in many modern gas turbine systems, and is due to the complex physical coupling of the acoustic resonances in the combustion chamber with fluctuations in the heat release of the combustion process. These instabilities can produce large pressure fluctuations that can be severe enough to damage engine hardware. Next-generation gas turbines will increase the ...
