  1. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  2. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  3. Additive Manufacture of Refractory Metal Propulsion Components

    SBC: Geoplasma, LLC            Topic: T9

    Niobium alloy (C-103) reaction control system (RCS) chambers have been used on numerous NASA programs.  However at elevated temperatures, the strength of C-103 decreases significantly.  Higher strength niobium alloys have been developed, but these alloys lack the formability of C-103.   Recently, Additive Manufacture (AM) of niobium and C-103 has been demonstrated using powder ...

  4. Sentient Science- A Multiscale Modeling Suite for Process and Microstructure Prediction in Metal Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: T12

    In response to NASA’s topic T12.02 of “Extensible Modeling of Metallurgical Additive Manufacturing Processes”, Sentient proposes to incorporate its DigitalClone technique to develop a multiscale and multiphysics computational modeling suite to predict comprehensive outcomes from AM building processes, including geometrical accuracy, and resulting microstructure and defects. Figur ...

  5. Femtosecond-Laser Fabrication of Waveguides in Laser Materials

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal includes, for the first time, integrated theoretical models and experimental investigations to simulate and demonstrate femtosecond-laser-fabricated waveguides in crystalline dielectric materials. The numerical models will predict refractive-index changes potentially induced by self-focusing, heat accumulation, thermal stress, plasma formation and relaxation, and ablation. The influe ...

  6. Prediction of Plume Induced Rock Fracture for Landers

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T9

    The landing surface damage and liberation of debris particles caused by rocket plume impingement flow during spacecraft propulsive landing on unprepared surfaces of Moon, Mars, and other celestial bodies poses a high risk for robotic and human exploration activities.  Simply determining whether the plume induced loads exceed the bedrock bearing capacity threshold is not sufficient. An integra ...

  7. A Scalable Gas-Particle Flow Simulation Tool for Lander Plume-Surface Interaction and Debris Prediction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T9

    Spacecraft propulsive landings on unprepared regolith present in extra-terrestrial environments pose a high risk for space exploration missions. Plume/regolith interaction results in (1) the liberation of dust and debris particles that may collide with the landing vehicle and (2) craters whose shape itself can influence vehicle dynamics. To investigate such gas-granular interactions for large-scal ...

  8. SilverlineAN

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Modern aircraft systems have slowly evolved towards integrated modular computing architectures that are linked to multiple external networks. These developments have introduced cyber-attack vulnerabilities which did not exist in older-generation avionics systems.  To counter the emerging threats and increased vulnerabilities, an ability to comprehensively and systematically assess aviation cy ...

  9. Low Emission Lean Fully Premixed (LFP) Injector/Combustor Development

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A1

    The overall objective of this SBIR project is the development of a novel concept for low emissions: a lean fully premixed (LFP) combustor for high overall pressure ratio small core engines. In order to achieve this major objective, a three-unit fully premixed injector has been conceptualized and proposed. Phase I scope includes design and demonstration of this injector, which will be composed of t ...

  10. Multi-Fidelity Surrogate Modeling for Computational and Experimental Data Consolidation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A1

    The goal of the project is to develop a mathematically rigorous, multi-fidelity surrogate modeling (MFSM) methodology to consolidate experimental and computational aerodynamic data into integrated databases with quantifiable uncertainty. The salient aspects of the proposed solution are: (1) a hierarchical MFSM formulation to encapsulate local response surface modeling, model adaptation/fusion, int ...
