  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Effect of Ambipolar Potential on the Propulsive Performance of the GDM Plasma Thruster

    SBC: Reisz Engineers            Topic: T801

    The gasdynamic mirror (GDM) plasma thruster has the ability to confine high-density plasma for the length of time required to heat it to the temperatures corresponding to specific impulse requirements. The often-cited plasma confinement time is directly proportional to the mirror ratio and the length, and is inversely proportional to the square root of ion energy. This confinement law, however, i ...

  6. Whole Mouse Cryo-Imaging

    SBC: BIOINVISION INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): BioInVision, Inc. and Case Western Reserve University researchers will develop a cryo-imaging system for 3D imaging of mice. It will serve very many applications in biological research and the biotechnology industry, in cluding mouse anatomical phenotyping, drug delivery, imaging agents, metastastic cancer, pathogen/immune system response, and stem cells/regene ...

  7. Feasibility Evaluation of a Prosthetic Venous Value


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Phase I STTR proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel prosthetic venous valve design concept. One of the ultimate goals in vascular surgery is to develop a successful prosthetic venous valve to replace defective valves in patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). More than 8 million Americans suffer from the debilitating c ...

  8. Development of new inhibitors of androgen receptors

    SBC: Cleveland Biolabs, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This program is aimed at developing a new class of drugs effective against most aggressive and a poorly curable hormone independent form of prostate cancer (CAP). Failure of androgen ablation therapy is rarely associated with the loss of the androgen receptor (AR) signaling by hormone-independent CaP. AR pathway in such tumors remains constitutively active rega ...

  9. Assessing Suicide Risk in the ED: Web-based Education

    SBC: CME DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Since the late 1980's there has been a sharp rise in the number of children and adolescents presenting to emergency departments (EDs) for psychiatric issues. Given that mental health issues account for 1.6% - 5.0% of all pediatric ED visits, and that Emergency Medical System's (EMS) staffs are the first to interact with these youth, the assessment of psychiatri ...

  10. Minimally-Invasive Image-Guided Therapy for Cancer Treatment

    SBC: CONTRADYN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this research is to develop a technology and eventually a minimally-invasive commercial system for image-guided photodynamic therapy for cancer. This is certainly in keeping with NCI's focus o n imaging in vivo for cancer screening, diagnosis, progression, image-guide therapy, treatment monitoring, and recurrence. In studies conducted ...
