  1. Coupled Cluster Methods for Multi-Reference Applications

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF09BT40

    The objective of Phase I is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various multi-reference coupled-cluster (MRCC) methods that have been proposed for the description of molecular states depending upon near degeneracies and non-dynamic electron correlation. Such effects are encountered in bond breaking, at transition states, for complex open shell systems like transition metal atoms, and f ...

  2. Meshfree-Based Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT041

    The aluminum alloys have low density, relatively high strength, and high strength-to-weight ratio, which brings some major advantages in marine structure design, fabrication, and operations. However, marine ships are subjected to a complex and severe loading, and the typical failure mode of aluminum under extreme dynamics loading such as wave slamming and high velocity impact is ductile fracture. ...

  3. Deterministic and Statistical Characterization of the Impact of Control Surface Freeplay on Flutter and Limit-Cycle Oscillation (LCO) using Efficient

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT003

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art computational and experimental tools for the investigation of the impact of control surface freeplay on the flutter and limit cycle oscillation characteristics of two-dimensional and three-dimensional wings in subsonic and transonic flow. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed ba ...

  4. Multiscale Modeling and Analysis of Foreign Object Damage in Ceramic Matrix Composites with the Material Point Method

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT010

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is aiming at developing and implementing a multiscale composite model to predict the ceramic matrix composite (CMC) response to the impact loading by foreign objects. In particular, the physics-based model will be applied to describe the multiscale foreign object damage (FOD) phenomena of CMCs due to the complex nature of impact dynamics coup ...

  5. STOCHASTIC MUTISCALE/MULTISTAGE MODELING OF ENGINE DISKS

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT028

    Turbine disks are amongst the most critical components in aero- and naval-vessel engines. They operate in a high pressure and temperature environment requiring demanding properties. Nickel-based supperalloys which have high creep and oxidation resistance at high temperatures are widely used as the material of turbine disks. The elevated-temperature strength of this supperalloy and its resistance t ...

  7. Enhanced Carbon Nanotube Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: AF09BT05

    The mission of this proposed research is to develop ultracapacitors (also known as electrochemical or supercapacitors) to address an array of military applications. These applications include pulsed power for directed-energy and kinetic-energy weapons, sensors, and power supplies and control systems for aircraft and spacecraft. The proposed innovation employs carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with p ...

  8. Fusion of a Real-time Analytical Model with Facility Control Systems

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF09BT16

    AEDC personnel have developed and demonstrated the effectiveness of coupling a control volume model with a wind tunnel control system. The performance of the model was hampered because parameters of the model were assumed to be constant, when they are likely variables. A method for using facility data to determine functional relationships defining these parameters would allow them to vary during ...

  9. Advanced Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT03

    Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...

  10. An Automated, High Throughput, Filter-Free Pathogen Preconcentrator

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A10AT016

    Accurate real-time waterborne pathogen detection is of paramount importance to security of U.S. military forces and installations. Fieldable high-throughput pathogen concentration is a critical analytical need for enhanced detection performance. Existing concentration methods are time-consuming, bulky, labor-intensive, power- and reagent-hungry, and consequently ill-suited for battlefield deployme ...
