  4. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas


    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since the missile radome is often the aerodynamic leading edge, it undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...

  8. Bayesian-Based Probabilistic Limit Cycle Oscillation Prediction of Aircraft with Stores

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF18BT008

    The overall technical objective of the Phase I effort is to develop a Bayesian-based, data driven, probabilistic limit cycle oscillation (LCO) prediction tool that can be used to identify critical and non-critical aircraft with stores configurations. This tool will be built upon a non-deterministic nonlinear structural damping (NSD) model integrated in the ZONA Euler Unsteady Solver (ZEUS). The NS ...
