  1. Numerical Simulation of Rocket Exhaust Interaction with Lunar Soil

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    Rocket plume impingement can cause significant damage and contaminate co-landing spacecraft and surrounding habitat structures during lunar landing operations. CFDRC and the University of Florida will develop an innovative simulation system for predicting surface erosion and debris transport caused by lunar surface rocket plume impingement. This simulation system combines 1) a unified continuum-ra ...

  2. Automation of Analysis Model Creation

    SBC: Technosoft, Inc            Topic: N06T018

    Although numerical analysis applications have proven to be effective and reasonably accurate, the effort required to develop the associated analysis models remains a challenging and time consuming task. While many meshing tools are currently available, decomposing and manipulating the design geometry and enhancing the topology for mesh construction are manual processes and place the heaviest dema ...

  3. Binary Multi-Taggant System for Unique Target ID

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N06T027

    To enable warfighters the ability to track entities buried in urban clutter, a series of environmentally-friendly, covert microtaggants composed of nanocrystals functionalized with luminophores with well-defined visible (VIS), near-infrared (NIR) and/or shortwavelength-infrared (SWIR) emission spectra will be further developed. The microtaggant’s quantum-confined nanocrystals are sensitive to on ...

  4. An On-Chip Nano-Plasmonics Based Urine Protein Assay Cartridge

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T302

    Long-term exposure to microgravity and radiation during space exploration can pose a critical threat to the health of a flight crew. Real-time monitoring of urine protein levels is an effective way to follow the onset and progress of many diseases and guide the prompt selection of proper therapy. The success of such diagnostic tasks, which is strongly desired for flight missions, critically depend ...

  5. Fuel/Oxidizer Injector Modeling in Sub- and Super-Critical Regimes for Deep Throttling Cryogenic Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T802

    Accurate CFD modeling of fuel/oxidizer injection and combustion is needed to design and analyze liquid rocket engines. Currently, however, there is no mature modeling capability for liquid fuel/oxidizer injectors in LOCI-Chem, used by NASA and its contractors to analyze rocket engines. In this STTR, an innovative, high fidelity injection module will be developed that features the Level Set (LS) i ...

  7. Finding Strength in Culture: A Video Series for American Indian Parents

    SBC: InterVision Media            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over five hundred years of contact with European culture has had a profound impact on American Indian communities, with destructive policies implemented in the service of assimilation efforts that broke up the extended family and community. The strains of history pressing on American Indian families are reflected in research indicating weakened family connecti ...

  10. Web-based Family Intervention for Pediatric Obesity

    SBC: DESCHUTES RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent studies indicate that the prevalence of overweight and obesity in children is very high (about 25-30 percent), and the incidence is increasing, especially among minority African- American and Hispanic children. O besity in childhood is associated with a high risk of continued obesity into adolescence and adulthood. This is of great public health signific ...
