  1. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  2. Methods for Actionable Measures of Absolute Cognitive Workload

    SBC: VR Rehab Inc            Topic: N16AT002

    Cognitive workload is the amount of mental effort an individual must exert to perform a required set of tasks. The proposed methods for actionable measures of absolute cognitive workload will integrate subjective workload ratings together with real-time physiological measures and assessments of mission effectiveness based on carefully designed scenarios. These data will be used as input parameters ...

  3. Microstructure Informatics for Propagating Uncertainty in Material and Processing to Performance Predictions of AM Titanium Parts

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    During AM of metallic alloys, a material exhibits several complex physical phenomena that impact the spatial distribution of heterogeneous material properties within a built component. Subsequent post-processing alters the already heterogeneous location-specific material properties. This project is to develop a novel methodology for linking the time and length scales of the various physical phenom ...

  4. Advanced, nanostructred low-friction coatings for foil air bearings

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: N16AT005

    During Phase I, we propose to develop nanostructured, low friction thermal sprayed coatings that are able to withstand high dynamic loadings. Additionally, the novel coatings will possess a low friction coefficients in humid air, dried conditions and various greases and lubricants. These novel nanostructured coatings will be manufactured by HVOF spraying of solid lubricants based nanostructured po ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel Metal Matrix Composites using Nickel functionalized Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Shepra, Inc.            Topic: N16AT007

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) has a potential to significantly reduce the cost and lead time associated with the maintenance and sustainment issues faced by the US Navy. However, current materials such as 17-4 PH Stainless Steel typically achieve half the required mechanical properties when additively manufactured, thus limiting the use of AM in critical parts. Recent advancements in carbon nanotube ...

  6. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Fault Detection, Localization, and Isolation

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT009

    In this phase I we propose to extend our work on MVDC isolation device to include fault detection, and fault localization circuitry. We have previously developed under an SBIR a 6 kVDC, 2000A isolation device that was built and tested in MVDC ship distribution system laboratory at FSU CAPS. In this phase I we propose to use rogowski coils and hall effect probes to detect faults and we propose to a ...

  7. Fully Encapsulating Dielectrics for Gaseous Helium Cooled Superconducting Power Cables

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N16AT011

    The Navys Next Generation Integrated Power Systems (NGIPS) for on shore, surface ships, and underwater vehicles will require novel power distribution systems. State of the art prime mover power generation and high power directed weapons require power distribution cables that surpass conventional copper cable capabilities. As such, the Navy has determined that electrical power systems must increase ...

  8. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Grounding System

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N16AT012

    The main focus of this research will be to develop effective modeling toolboxes to analyze CM current/voltage behaviors and fault conditions at any part of the power system in a cost and time effective way. The toolbox will assist with grounding strategies and enhance the baseline design. A CM equivalent circuit model [3] has been developed to analyze the CM current/voltage behaviors. In this work ...

  9. Low-cost Thermal Management Technology for Combat Systems Computers

    SBC: Engineering And Scientific Innovations Inc.            Topic: N16AT014

    Using a fluid dynamic energy separation technique, in combination with thermoelectric generators (TEGs), a unique hybrid cooling system using low grade waste heat is proposed. This system uses the concept of fluid structure interactions and vorticity redistribution to produce large levels of vorticity within working fluid and thereby generate large temperature gradients in the working fluid which ...

  10. Modular Thermal Management System for Electronics Enclosures

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N16AT014

    As Navy combat systems evolve, the heat loads produced by electronics enclosures continues to increase. Legacy thermal management techniques for these enclosures such as liquid cooling coupled to the ship chilled water supply and direct air cooling of the cabinets require infrastructure such as pipes and ducts which are expensive to install and reconfigure. Mainstream proposes to design a vapor co ...
