  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. 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 ...

  3. Composite Retrofit Technicques for Blast Resistance

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Project will determine the advantages and disad-vantages of fibrous/polymeric composite materials over traditional material (steel) for retrofitting key civilian facilities against terrorist bomb attack. Retrofit techniques we will evaluate are: strengthening fully and partially exposed columns with composite wraps or shells, masonry walls with bonded comp ...

  4. Modeling Enhanced Energy Release in Turbulent Exothermic Flows in Closed Chambers by an Inverse Meth

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Toward understanding how turbulent mixing with air of detonation products of fuel-rich explosives results in further combustion of the detonation products and, therefore, enhanced lethality, we first consider an exothermic reaction of a premixed fuel/oxidizer in a closed vessel in the limit of zero Mach number and infinite Reynolds, Peclet, and Damkohler numbers. To help elucidate the main mechan ...

  5. High-Order Godunov Schemes for Multiphase Gas particulate Flowfield Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Krispin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed work aims at deeloping two major new innovqative capabiliities for the High-Order Godunov (HOG) technology. The first new capability is in the area of low Mach number problems; new code based on the projection method scheme will be developed for complex 3D multiphase flow fields, in particular, the post explosion cloud rise phenomenon includin gparticle transport. The second new ca ...

  6. Distributed Interactive Simulation of Nuclear Weapons Effects

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    Environments created from a nuclear event can have a great impact upon the operation of military forces on the battlefield. It is imperative that the associated nuclear effects are portrayed in an environment such as Dirstributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) so that changes canbe made during the weapon system design process to mitigate nuculear effects. These effectscan be extended to other appl ...

  7. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  8. Low Cost, Portable X-Ray Simulator Development

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We propose, in Phase I and Phase II, to build an X-ray simulator capable of easy transportation between sites which can be built for a low cost (

  9. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  10. Speed-Accuracy Measures for Distributed Interactive Simulation of Nuclear Weapons Effects

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Using distributed interactive simulation (DIS) to conduct effective training, analyses, or mission support in a tactical nuclear weapons effects (NWE) environment requires realistic computer generated forces (CGF) that are sensitive to such effects. This level of sensitivity requires CGF to apply valid and reliable speed-accuracy measures of environmental effects on human performance within the D ...
