  1. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  3. Innovative, Rapid Non-Linear Physics-Based Aeroelastic Analysis System

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: AF14AT04

    ABSTRACT: Accurate aeroelastic predictions are critical to the development of aircraft and assessment of aircraft/store compatibility since structural deformation and aeroelastic instabilities during flight affect pilot/aircraft safety and mission success. Indeed, several fighter aircraft have demonstrated recurring susceptibility to Limit Cycle Oscillations (LCO) when certain external stores ar ...
