  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. DocMark: A Rule-based and Probabilistic Document Marking System

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF131052

    ABSTRACT: In order to prevent loss of sensitive data, organizations need to be able to tag data with classification and releasability metadata. Currently classification is a manual and labor-intensive process, which slows the dissemination of sharable data. ATC-NY will develop DocMark, a product to automatically determine classification and dissemination metadata and record it in standard forma ...

  8. Bearing Analytical Software Development and Validation Phase II

    SBC: Pradeep K Gupta Inc            Topic: AF131163

    ABSTRACT: With the objective of developing validated bearing performance software, this proposed development focuses on several technical areas. First, the generalized life models developed in Phase I shall be extended to include elastic property variation with depth for improved modeling of case hardened materials such as M50 NiL. In addition rolling elements shall be modeled as separate element ...

  9. WhyViz: Transforming Cyber Data into Human-Centered Visualizations

    SBC: APPLIED VISIONS, INC.            Topic: AF151015

    ABSTRACT:Cyber operators mentally integrate numerous data sources, many whose native format is difficult to comprehend. Visualizations can help, but the raw data must first be transformed. Designing effective visualizations is also difficult because there is a dearth of empirical research on how various visualizations affect the cyber operators performance. Secure Decisions proposes to systematica ...

  10. Virtual Trusted Platform Module (vTPM)

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: AF151033

    ABSTRACT:Trusted platform module(TPM) devices provide the core root of trust for modern computer systems. These devices are used for secure, trusted, and measured boot approaches as well as to secure data for user applications such as Microsoft's Bitlocker technology. However, more and more systems are now virtualized in the cloud. Currently hypervisor technologies either do not provide guests wit ...
