The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Development of Adaptive Vorticity Confinement Based CFD Methodology for Rotorcraft Applications

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: N132092

    The accurate representation of the rotor wake, especially the tip vortex structure, in a computationally efficient and algorithmically straight forward way is crucial for prediction of rotor aerodynamic performance, noise emission, and rotor structural dynamics. A promising approach for design and optimization is the vorticity confinement (VC) method that minimizes the numerical diffusion of vorti ...
