  1. High-Speed Measurements of Dynamic Flame Stabilization Processes in High-Pressure Combustion Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT13

    The Phase-II research is a natural extension and a significant advancement over the Phase-I research, which has successfully demonstrated high-speed, burst-mode, polarization-based, dual-plane, stereoscopic PIV measurements synchronized with OH-PLIF imaging of turbulent swirling combustion in a generic gas-turbine combustor with and without acoustic forcing. We propose to conduct high-speed, burst ...

  2. Securing the Internet of Things (IoT)

    SBC: Samraksh Company, The            Topic: AF16AT10

    A market study of cybersecurity of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Phase I of this effort shows that the rapidly escalating weaponization of IoT devices will continue to be a problem for complex technical, economic, and political reasons. The IoT phenomenon has yielded a vulnerability with asymmetric cost-benefit in favor of the adversary, and this in turn has created the potential for strategic s ...

  3. Experimentally Derived Scaling Laws from Spatiotemporally Resolved Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT15

    The objectives of this research effort are to experimentally derive the scaling laws up to 30 bar for key combustion species and temperature for reactions involving various hydrocarbon fuels in such a way so that the spatio-temporally resolved measurements would not be influenced by signal-degrading processes such as quenching, photolytic interference, Stark shift, and stimulated Raman. This build ...

  7. Fast Response Heat Flux Sensors and Efficient Data Reduction Methodology for Hypersonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF17AT001

    Accurate knowledge of heat flux is critical in assessing the performance and survivability of hypersonic aerodynamic systems. Under these flow regimes extreme pressures, temperatures, and vibrations make it difficult to quantify even the most basic aerothermodynamic properties. Ahmic Aerospace and Virginia Tech propose an innovative new approach to develop robust heat flux sensors and a data reduc ...
