  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 ...

  2. The Replacement of Chromium Electroplate for High Wear/High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: This proposal translates a non-toxic, aqueous-based, near room temperature electrodeposition process to completely eliminate Cr (VI) for the production of wear and corrosion resistant surfaces on high-strength steel. Specifically, our process will produce adherent and crack-free Re-based coatings that are extremely high-temperature (Tm of Re = 3180oC), lubricious, wear-resistant, and cor ...

  3. Snapshot Imaging Laser Displacement Sensor for Hypervelocity Diagnostic Testing

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is interested in hypersonic (M>5) systems that enable time-critical missions for strike and Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR). Perhaps more so than for any other flight regime, precise and accurate sensing of key phenomena is difficult without contaminating the data being collected. Control Vision, Inc has developed unique optical profilometry technology whic ...

  9. Novel, High-Temperature Power-Generation for Long Duration Hypersonic Platforms

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF15AT39

    ABSTRACT: The ability to convert extreme aerodynamic heating into electricity via thermoelectric generators presents a unique opportunity to leverage this otherwise undesirable condition. The harvested energy can be used to power the significant electrical demand of a hypersonic/long range vehicle while also aiding in managing high temperatures. To address this need for an high temperature thermoe ...
