  1. Nuclear Weapons Effects Phenomenology

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The nuclear weapons community has traditionally focused on the next generation or level of weapon capability complimented by gathering and analysis of actual test data. Now, with the cessation of actual weapons testing, there is an increased need to use the actual test data in modeling techniques to better understand the phenomenology and potential effects of nuclear weapons. The first phase of ...

  2. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...

  4. Laser Turbulence Measurements in the LB/TS

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Turbulence of gas flows by its very nature is one of the most difficult things to model and measure. We propose to develop a new way of measuring the turbulence and to compare these measurements to predictions using the k-epsilon model. Typical measurements, in the past, use smoke, Schlierin or shadow graph techniques to visually infer turbulence characteristics. These features are either motio ...

  6. HOLOGRAPHIC PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR ARMS CONTROL

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR HAS PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR A UNIQUE PROCESS THAT DIRECTLY CONVERTS AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL INTO A VISIBLE ONE IN REAL-TIME WITHOUT ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY. THIS RELIES ON THE ACOUSTO-OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF A CONTINUOUS LAYER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL THIN FILM LAYER WHICH SERVES AS BOTH THE SENSOR AND THE DISPLAY. THE IMAGE CAN BE VIEWED DIRECTLY BY MEANS OF CCD CAMERA. HOLOGRAPHY PROVIDES FOR BOTH ...

  7. VALIDATION & TESTING OF THE VAM2D COMPUTER CODE

    SBC: Hydrogeologic Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL STATES ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING MUCH-NEEDED NEW LOW-LEVEL RADIOACTIVE DISPOSAL SITES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LOW-LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTE POLICY ACT OF 1980. ANY NEW COMMERCIALREQUIREMENT THAT A SITE BE CAPABLE OF BEING MODELED AND THATITS PERFORMANCE BE ASSURED FOR 500 YEARS. FOR MOST SITES, THE HYDROGEOLOGICAL AND RADIONUCLIDE TRANSPORT CHARACTERIS- TICS OF THE UNSATURATED ZONE ARE MAJOR FACT ...

  8. REAL-TIME DRY PROCESS NON-LIGHT SENSITIVE X-RAY FILM

    SBC: Imaging Science Technologies            Topic: N/A

    BOTH CURRENT (INF) AND PROPOSED (SALT) ARMS CONTROL TREATIES WILL REQUIRE MEANS OF VERIFICATION AND COUNTING OF MISSILES. CURRENT PROVISIONS PRECLUDE LOOKING INSIDE VEHICLES AND UNDER COVERS. ONE METHOD OF VISUALIZING CONTENTS WILL BE BY X-RAY, HOWEVER, CURRENT X-RAY FILMS ARE LIGHT-SENSITIVE AND REQUIRE CHEMICAL PROCESSING AND BECAUSE OF THIS, MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR DIFFICULT ENVIRONMENTS IN THE ...

  9. EMP AND HPM SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Integrated Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Survival of present day microelectronic circuits depends on their protection from self generated and external electromagnetic interference. This proposal is oriented toward the class of interference generally referred to as overvoltage transients. Means for mitigating these transients include gas discharge tubes, and various solid state devices. Each of these has their own advantages in particu ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF AN EULERIAN FINITE ELEMENT CODE

    SBC: Intelligent Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT NUMERICAL COMPUTATIONS TO DESCRIBE NUCLEAR GROUND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS, NUCLEAR CRATER FORMATION, IMPACT DYNAMICS AND PENETRATION MECHANISMS PRESENTLY EMPLOY EULERIAN-BASED FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO MODEL THE MASS FLUX PHENOMENA IN TRACKING MATERIAL MOVEMENT THROUGH THE DISCRETIZED SPACE. THE FINITE DIFFERENCE CODES SUFFER IN COMPARISON TO FINITE ELEMENT CODES, HOWE ...
