  2. ICME-based fatigue life prediction for additive manufactured metallic components

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N19BT026

    Despite the tremendous benefits of additive manufacturing (AM) to our warfighters, uncertainty in fatigue life predictions have been a major roadblock for certifying metallic AM parts to fly. We are proposing a hybrid modeling/inspection approach to estimate fatigue life of AMed parts using damage tolerance analysis combined with inspections. The new developed tool is expected to provide certifica ...

  3. Additive Manufacture of Inorganic Freeform Gradient-Index Optics

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N19BT028

    An additive-manufacturing process will be developed for printing high-quality freeform inorganic gradient-index (GRIN) optical elements. Candidate nanocrystal materials including ZnS, ZrO, TiO2, PbSe, and rare-earth-doped metal oxides, will be synthesized and characterized. A process for inkjet-print depositing high-volume-percent loading density of binary, ternary, quaternary, etc., nanoparticle ...

  4. Non-destructive Webbing Strength Indicator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N19BT032

    Webbing is strong, woven material that is used to secure cargo as well as for safety equipment such as seat belts, harnesses, and parachute rigging. Due to its extensive use in Military applications, the strength of the webbing is a key component of equipment design, especially in the case of safety gear that protects soldiers, as lives may be dependent on the strength and proper performance of th ...

  5. Multi-scale Physics-based Modeling of Particle-Impact Erosion of CMCs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT033

    Sand particles ingested into aeroengines can impinge on components made of ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) and cause structural damage including long-term erosion. Experimental analysis of erosion typically focuses on the damage footprint and mass loss and is limited in the range of operating parameters that can be examined. Hence, high-fidelity modeling of the erosion process is essential to der ...

  6. Rapid ICME-based Multiphysics Modeling of Surface Roughness in LPBF Ti6Al4V

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N19BT034

    The uncertainty in predicting surface roughness and subsurface defects in as-built additively manufactured (AM) parts is hindering the wide utilization of AM for mission critical components that exhibit fatigue loading conditions due to the propagated uncertainly in crack initiation and propagation from surface defects. Thus, this work is focused on developing a new multiphysics toolset for predic ...

  7. Smart ICME for Enhanced Fatigue Life in Metal Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N20AT002

    Fatigue life of parts produced by metal additive manufacturing is determined by the complex interaction of defects, surface properties, and material microstructure.  Each of these constituents is affected by the choice of processing parameters, as well as the feedstock, machine performance, etc.  In addition, stochastic events often contribute significantly to the fatigue life of individual samp ...

  8. Fully Automated Quantum Cascade Laser Design Aided by Machine Learning with up to 100X Design Cycle Time Reduction

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N20AT003

    A Quantum Cascade Laser's (QCL) core material is a series of nanometer scale layers of conduction band barrier and well materials designed to induce lasing electron energy levels. The key design feature of a QCL is the ability to repeat the laser core superlattice design to cascade electrons through the superlattice repetitions by repeated stimulated emission. Such designs are generally carefully ...

  9. Advanced, High-Performance, Low-Noise Propeller Designs for Small UxS

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N20AT006

    Improved propeller designs for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems are needed to improve performance and reduce acoustic emissions. Traditional propeller design methods don’t take advantage of advances in coupled fluid, structure and acoustics computational design methods nor advances in high strength, high modulus materials to extend performance of propellers and reduce noise emissions. In the propos ...

  10. Dual Stage Integrated Cyclone (DSIC) Geometry for Sea Chest Water Management System

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N20AT008

    Current Zumwalt Class destroyers (DDG 1000) sea chest openings are unique because they must be flush to the hull, limiting implementation of common sea chest designs (e.g., bubble shields or raised inlets). This design results in the ingestion of higher amounts of ice, debris, and air, resulting in increased maintenance costs, potential pump failure, and degraded overall cooling performance. The N ...
