  4. Highly-Scalable Computational Algorithms for Solving Aerostructural FSI Problems on Emerging Parallel Machine Architectures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: Traditional multidisciplinary solvers function by solving the individual governing equations on computer clusters. In the case of aero-elastic Fluid-Structures Interaction (FSI) simulations, individual solvers have disparate requirements for optimal performance. CFD codes use iterative schemes and distributed memory, while CSD codes, use direct linear-solvers and utilize shared memory t ...

  6. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Omm Scientific, Inc            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: New energetic materials are needed for use in explosives and propellants that have a very powerful energy release yet are insensitive to handling. Safer materials that also allow development of lighter weight, longer range missiles and higher performance explosives are needed. One class of such compounds is materials based on furazan heterocycles. While some furazans are too energeti ...

  7. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: The ability to oxidize organic functional groups in a selective manner is of major importance in preparing compounds of interest to the Air Force and DoD. This is particularly critical in the preparation of high energy density compounds and fuels. Heterocyclic ring systems that contain both nitro and amino groups have been found to be an important class of compounds that are useful in ...

  8. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    SBC: SensorMetrix            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: It is proposed to develop an innovative structured class of devices with directive emission and transmission that utilize metamaterial concepts. The proposed structures will be thin films with electromagnetic responses that can be systematically manipulated in the infrared region to enable directionally tailored emissivity and transmissivity. The team has demonstrated nearly perfect abs ...
