  1. STTR Phase I: Mechanical Surface Treatment for High Performance Biodegradable Implants

    SBC: SURFACE INTEGRITY, LLC            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to shift current practices in bone fracture fixation care from using permanent metal implants to biodegradable metal implants (screws, plates, pins, rods, etc.). A promising biodegradable metal that is gaining widespread attention is magnesium. This project will advance magnesium implant te ...

  2. Improved Turbulence Modelling Across Disparate Length Scales for Naval Computational Fluid Dynamics Applications

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: N15AT002

    Computational Sciences LLC will collaborate with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to develop and validate a stand-alone computational module that naturally accounts for the effects of turbulence. Such fluctuations and transitions may be associated with compressible flows and boundary layer interactions. The module will be designed for implementation in to existing legacy codes for use in ...

  3. Grid-Spacing-Independent and Discretization-Order-Independent Simulation for Naval Single-Phase and Two-Phase Flow Applications

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT002

    Turbulent shear flows in naval applications are characterized by vastly different lengths and time scales associated with rotor tip vortices and the vortical structures shed from the ship, and additional phase from water drops and water vapor. To tackle the modeling challenges, we propose a novel methodology that combines a vorticity preserving method and a new approach to LES turbulence modeling ...

  4. In Situ, Nondestructive Inspection During Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Parts

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: N15AT008

    The research objective of this proposal is to demonstrate feasibility to collect and interpret in situ 3-D surface data for the laser sintered top surface for each layer in a powder bed process. The 3-D data collection will be performed with no interference with the operational efficiency and build time for the powder bed process. The 3-D data will be utilized to compute the distributions of surfa ...

  6. Time-resolved Measurements of Temperature and Product Mass Fractions within Detonation-based Combustion Devices at Elevated Pressures and Temperatures

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N15AT021

    The Phase I research effort proposed here is to design and demonstrate first-generation laser-absorption-based sensors for time-resolved measurements of combustion-product mass fractions and gas temperature within the detonation channels and at the nozzle exit plane of rotating-detonation-engine (RDE) systems. An important element of this work will be the development of criteria to optimize the se ...

  9. STTR Phase I: New dwarfing genes to improve yield and abiotic stress tolerance in wheat

    SBC: Gene shifters, LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of wheat yields by introducing newly identified dwarfing genes. The currently used dwarfing genes, which were instrumental in bringing about the "green revolution", are at least partly responsible for this bottleneck. These dwarfing genes, present in more than 90% of the wheat varie ...
