  1. Multiscale Simulation Framework for Modeling of Structural Reactive Materials

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF16AT23

    We propose to develop a set of multiscale modeling tools for structural reactive materials (SRMs) that explicitly treat microscale, mesoscale and macroscale coupling of mechanical response, thermal properties and chemical reactions. At the macroscale, a combined material point method (MPM, solid)/Eulerian (ICE, fluid) methodology, MPM-ICE, will be employed to investigate the behavior of select int ...

  2. Electrochemical Micro-Capacitors Utilizing Carbon Nanostructures

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: DMEA13B001

    The rapid advancement of microelectronics requires equivalently sized energy storage devices to provide energy for microelectromechanical system (MEMS) devices and other technologies. By using a novel approach to fabricate carbon nanotubes (CNTs), our electrodes have a high surface area with an aerial tube density up to 1,000 times greater than typical carpet-grown CNTs. By combining these electro ...

  3. High-Speed Measurements of Dynamic Flame Stabilization Processes in High-Pressure Combustion Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT13

    The Phase-II research is a natural extension and a significant advancement over the Phase-I research, which has successfully demonstrated high-speed, burst-mode, polarization-based, dual-plane, stereoscopic PIV measurements synchronized with OH-PLIF imaging of turbulent swirling combustion in a generic gas-turbine combustor with and without acoustic forcing. We propose to conduct high-speed, burst ...

  4. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to establish fundamental understanding of combustion-physical mechanisms leading to blowout, the critical evaluation of model limitations in predicting these blowout processes and the development of an improved combustion model to enable the prediction of lean blowout (LBO) in swirl-stabilized combustors. For this, high-resolution numerical simulati ...

  5. Securing the Internet of Things (IoT)

    SBC: Samraksh Company, The            Topic: AF16AT10

    A market study of cybersecurity of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Phase I of this effort shows that the rapidly escalating weaponization of IoT devices will continue to be a problem for complex technical, economic, and political reasons. The IoT phenomenon has yielded a vulnerability with asymmetric cost-benefit in favor of the adversary, and this in turn has created the potential for strategic s ...

  6. Experimentally Derived Scaling Laws from Spatiotemporally Resolved Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF16AT15

    The objectives of this research effort are to experimentally derive the scaling laws up to 30 bar for key combustion species and temperature for reactions involving various hydrocarbon fuels in such a way so that the spatio-temporally resolved measurements would not be influenced by signal-degrading processes such as quenching, photolytic interference, Stark shift, and stimulated Raman. This build ...

  7. Robust Ionic Liquid Electrolytes for Reversible Electroplating of Mirrors

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT20

    This proposal addresses the need for development of room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) for use in electrolytes for reversibly electroplating films with specific optical, emissive and electrical properties on demand. Target applications for these electrolytes are devices using reversible electroplating for tuning/regenerating functional surfaces, such as mirrors or thermal emitters, deployed on ...

  8. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT21

    Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of problems and challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal and/or catalytic cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied with coke formation. Coke deposits on combustor and nozzle walls reduce heat ...

  9. Combat Systems of the Future

    SBC: Advanced Systems/Supportability Engineering Technologies And Tools, Inc.            Topic: N05149

    The S-351 mini-sub is a prototype of the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). This prototype was established as a means of risk reduction prior to a full commitment to the DCS program. Both of these platforms have an operational need to transit with minimum operator fatigue safely to a pre-defined point and covertly deploy and retrieve SEALS. To meet these operational needs, these platforms require upgra ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    In this Phase II program, Voxtel will design, manufacture, and benchmark-test additive-manufactured (AM) insulators capable of electrical stress greater than 25 kV/mm, for use in high-electric-field applications, such as high-power microwave (HPM) devices. These insulators will sustain vacuum of 10-7 Torr and withstand 20 psi of pressure. To achieve this goal, Voxtel will synthesize readily additi ...
