  1. STTR Friction Stir Processing for Superplastic Forming

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N06T038

    In Phase I, technical and commercial feasibility was demonstrated for the application of friction stir processing (FSP) following by superplastic forming (SPF) of a 5083 aluminum alloy, and for FSP following by room temperature bending. An application showing significant promise for FSP followed by SPF is an aluminum water tight door. The use of FSP followed by SPF enables a significant part co ...

  2. Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A07T040

    From anecdotal reports of the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today for United States soldiers engaged in armed combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medics have historically ...

  3. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  4. Development of Multi-Frequency Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: Prism Computational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF08T020

    The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced radiation transport modeling techniques that accurately and efficiently treat transport in media having widely varying optical properties; in particular, hot gases and plasmas with optical depths ranging from the optically thin to the optically thick regimes. In doing this, we will develop a hybrid diffusion-Monte Carlo (HDMC) model that effic ...

  5. Thermodynamic Modeling and Mechanical Testing for the Multiphase Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) Alloy for High Temperature (1300ºC-1500ºC) Services

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF07T003

    CompuTherm, LLC in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory proposes to develop a modeling tool that can be used to understand the effect of Ti, Zr, and Hf addition on the improvement of ductility of the (Mo) phase in the Mo-Si-B system. The tool will be developed by integrating thermodynamic modeling with mechanical testing. Thermodynamic descriptions of the Mo-Si-B-X (X=Ti, Zr, Hf) syste ...

  6. Ionic Liquid Monopropellant Based Gas Generator

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A08T022

    Energetic ionic liquids (EIL) represent a new, and potentially revolutionary development in propulsion chemistry. These salts, with unique attributes of surface tension, vapor pressure, thermal stability, and reactivity are leading candidates for low-toxicity, reduced hazard replacements of conventional (hydrazine based) monopropellants. C3 Propulsion, in collaboration with the Center for Green Ma ...

  7. Hybrid Approach for Multi-Scale Modeling of Radiation Transfer in Three-Dimensional Non-Gray Media

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T020

    In this STTR project, an efficient and high-fidelity computational module to predict non-gray radiative transfer will be developed and validated. The proposed hybrid approach to solve the radiative transport equation (RTE) is a combination of the spherical harmonics (PN) method and the Monte-Carlo method. Non-gray gases will be treated using the full spectrum correlated k-distribution (FSCK) metho ...

  8. Advanced Friction Stir Processing for Ultra-refined Microstructure Development of Aluminum 7XXX Series Alloys

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: AF07T038

    Friction Stir Processing (FSP) has been demonstrated to generate refined microstructures, resulting in improved material properties. This has several areas of application. First, FSP can enhance the formability of the particular alloy of interest. This is especially important for the superplastic forming process, where the use of FSP can be used to create superplastic behavior at high strain r ...

  9. Portable Friction Stir Welding Technology for Aluminum Fabrication

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N07T032

    Friction Stir Welding (FSW) has been demonstrated to provide significant benefit for Naval applications. However, its use has been limited to fabrication of panels, because no portable multi-axis FSW solution exists. If FSW could be used for in situ fabrication of complex assemblies, significant further benefits could be realized, including cost reduction and improved quality (significantly less ...

  10. Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

    SBC: INTRAMICRON INC            Topic: N07T027

    Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) are proposed for detailed analysis to determine their potential to meet future Navy fuel needs by means of highly selective Fischer Tropsch Synthesis (FTS). MFEC are comprised of small grains of supported catalysts (ca. 10-200 micron diameter) entrapped within sinter-locked networks of micron diameter metal fibers. Metal fibers comprise only 5-10 vol% of the ...
