  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 ...

  10. Satellite Drag Physical Model Module for a Near Real Time Operation Test Bed

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit predictions in LEO. The goal of this Phase II project is to develop a satellite drag specification capability ...
