  1. Analysis and Modeling of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: N&R ENGINEERING            Topic: N10AT010

    The Phase I deliverable will be a physic-based model which represents a CMC gas turbine component concomitantly at the material level and the structural level. This model will be probabilistically analyzed to account for the uncertainties in material properties and the uncertainties in the size and impact velocities of possible foreign objects (FOD). A ceramic material must display sufficient capa ...

  2. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N10AT037

    A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...

  3. Platform Li-Ion Battery Risk Assessment Tool

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT014

    Modern warfare is becoming increasingly dependent on high technology and the means to power it. Lithium-ion batteries are a popular power choice due to high energy density and long charge hold. Unfortunately Lithium-ion batteries also have some distinct disadvantages including the possibility of catastrophic failure. This is of significant importance when the battery failure may take place in clos ...

  4. Benign, Inexpensive Simulant for testing of Biological Standoff Sensors

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10AT017

    The goal of this Phase I proposal is to develop a synthetic, low cost, and benign simulant for biowarfare agents (BWA) to be used in the testing of standoff sensors. Orono Spectral Solutions Inc. (OSS) has performed preliminary work leading to the identification of benign ingredients that, when combined in a predefined mass ratio, mimic UV-Vis and infrared signatures of BG spores. This work was pe ...

  5. High surface-area, mesoporous oxide adsorbent sampling system.

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10AT018

    The overall goal of this Phase I project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an infrared transparent, micro-fluidic sampling system that will lead to a field-deployable detection system capable of detecting low ppb levels of chemical warfare (CW) agents in water. To accomplish this goal, the proposed detection system will combine high surface area, organically modified mesoporous oxide absorptiv ...

  7. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: Scientific Forming Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10AT028

    While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...

  8. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N10AT028

    Thermo-mechanical processes of turbine disks have been progressively improved to meet microstructural requirements tailored for advanced, sustainable high temperature performances. However, the chemistry of typical Ni-base turbine disk alloys is very complex, and yields a variety of phases and microstructural anomalies under different thermo-mechanical heat treatments. These microstructural hetero ...

  10. Tools for Modeling & Simulation of Molecular and Nanomaterials for Optically Responsive Devices

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT30

    Military applications for CBRNE/GWTO and C4ISR require R&D for materials to protect personnel and equipment. However, challenges remain in experimental synthesis and characterization of new materials, such as providing insight into observed properties for further advancement. Thus, it is essential to develop a predictive modeling and simulation approach that will not only provide a fundamental u ...
