  1. Highly-Scalable Computational Algorithms for Solving Aerostructural FSI Problems on Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: Traditional multidisciplinary solvers function by solving the individual governing equations on computer clusters. In the case of aero-elastic Fluid-Structures Interaction (FSI) simulations, individual solvers have disparate requirements for optimal performance. CFD codes use iterative schemes and distributed memory, while CSD codes, use direct linear-solvers and utilize shared memory t ...

  3. Beam Control for Optical Phased Array Transceivers

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF10BT23

    ABSTRACT: The proposed effort is focused on the development of a novel HEL beam director system prototype composed of an array of small-size densely packed and locked in-phase (phased) fiber collimators, which can be scalable in respect to the number of sub-apertures in the array and the power delivered through a single fiber collimator. In the proposed system the basic operation functions of a ...

  5. Nanoscale Conformable Thermal Interface Materials with Electronically Enhanced Heat Conduction

    SBC: ADAP Nanotech LLC            Topic: AF09BT22

    ABSTRACT: Thermal management has become a critical factor in designing the next generation of microprocessors. The current technology is unable to meet the increasing demands. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have excellent heat transport; however, the heat transport across the interface continues to be a challenging hurdle. Here, we have drawn a connection between heat transfer, electronic conduction, ...

  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. High-current Field Emitter Arrays for Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    Field-emission electron-emitting arrays hold promise for use in high current-density electron-beam devices as replacement for power consuming thermionic emitters. Large field-emitter arrays, however, are limited in total current due to non-uniformity and resulting instability problems. As a solution to these problems current-limiting devices, such as a field-effect transistor (FET) for each emitte ...

  10. Development of a Pest-resistant High Temperature Mo-Si-B-XX Alloy

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF07T003

    All the promising Mo-Si-B-X alloys developed so far contain a mixture of Mo-solid solution and brittle intermetallic phases. For further advances to occur, a full understanding and control of the properties of the Mo-rich solid solution is critical. The poor low temperature ductility of the solid solution phase and the catastrophic intermediate temperature oxidation resistance continue to be key ...
