  1. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    ABSTRACT:A joint experimental and computational project using a carefully designed, flexible test article is proposed to assess the velocity-coupled combustion response of a representative liquid rocket injector element to transverse acoustic disturbances. In the proposed Phase II, the response of an injector flowfield at supercritical pressure conditions will be simulated, measured, and reduced i ...

  2. Thermal Control for Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Satellites

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF103107

    ABSTRACT:This effort will provide both a rapid, satellite thermal modeling tool and deployable radiator system specific to Responsive Space needs. The thermal analysis tool will allow users to make rapid decisions and apply appropriate hardware from a specific RS thermal toolbox. The deployable radiators, being a key component of this toolbox, will provide near isothermal radiator surfaces and a h ...

  4. Efficient Computational Tool for RF-Induced Bio-Thermal Response

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT:Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including tissue damage or death. Modeling these thermal effects across a whole population of humans is difficult ...

  5. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High"dither"conditions, where the actuator undergoes a constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator ballscr ...

  6. Integrated In-process Strategy for Material and Process Specification Optimization

    SBC: RELIACOAT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF141208

    ABSTRACT: The thermal spray process has many inherent complexities within each sub-process including feedstock manufacturing, component surface preparation and masking, torch parameter selection, robot trajectory and laboratory coating evaluation. Each sub-process is governed by rigid specifications that provide thermal spray applicators with procedural and process guidelines throughout the appl ...

  7. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: IMAGINESTICS, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced practitioners remain in short supply and will likely remain so until the next generation of technicians and en ...

  9. Computer-aided Design (CAD) Tool for Modeling of High-Power Electromagnetic Interference (HPEMI) Effects on Conductive Paths

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF131010

    ABSTRACT: Data integrity is essential for accurate and deterministic decision making in diverse military and commercial digital systems, and the most common cause of electronic data corruption for many of these systems is electromagnetic interference (EMI). Unexpected and unmitigated EMI, especially from high power systems (HPEMI), can cause deleterious effects ranging from subtly incorrect calcu ...
