  1. Aircraft Electrical Power System Diagnostics and Health Management

    SBC: Global Strategic Solutions, LLC            Topic: N06T007

    Based on the research and analysis conducted during Phase I, it was determined that it is feasible to detect, diagnose, predict and manage impending failures in a rotating electrical machine (e.g., aircraft generator) using a real-time, sensory-updating residual life distribution estimation technique. Furthermore, the methodology allows us to develop a prognostic capability for the electrical powe ...

  2. Remote Detection of Ocean Surface Roughness Changes

    SBC: Zel Technologies, LLC            Topic: N06T002

    Detection of weak oceanic currents by remote sensing means is an important task for many applications of significance to the Navy and the society at large. A promising way to remotely detect the currents is through variations of backscattering strength of electromagnetic waves scattered from ocean surface roughness modulated by the currents. In Phase 1 of this STTR project we demonstrated that, de ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Post Process Characterization of Friction Stir Welded Components


    Luna Innovations Incorporated proposes in this STTR Phase II project to continue development and validation of Luna's amplitude-dependent, nonlinear ultrasonic inspection technique applied to friction stir welded (FSW) components. The technique was successfully demonstrated in the Phase I project on samples made from aluminum-lithium alloy 2195. The proposed Phase II project will focus on refini ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Active Flow Control with Adaptive Design Techniques for Improved Aircraft Safety

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: T202

    The overall objective of this STTR effort is to evaluate and demonstrate the potential for well-designed, strategically-located synthetic jet actuators to provide improved aircraft safety by: (1) delaying wing stall and improving aircraft controllability at high angles of attack and (2) providing low-cost actuation redun-dancy to improve controllability in the event of a mechanical control surface ...

  9. Interfacing the Paramesh Computational Libraries to the Cactus Computational Framework


    Our proposal and the Phase I work completed under it addressed these NASA-identified needs by providing software infrastructure that provides physical scientists a "plug-and-play" architecture in which they can insert their "physics kernels" and exploit very large existing code bases for the computer science aspects of the problem. In particular, our STTR product provides cutting-edge adaptive me ...
