  1. SUBMARINE SHOCK LETHALITY STUDIES: AN OBJECTIVE APPROACH FOR LARGE STRAIN CALCULATIONS

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED STRUCTURAL MATERIALS USED IN THE FABRICATION OF SUBMARINES CAN SUSTAIN LARGE STRAINS DURING THE FORMATION PROCESS CAUSED BY EXPLOSIVE LOADINGS. THE COMPUTATIONAL SOLID MECHANICS COMMUNITY HAS RECENTRLY RECOGNIZED SERIOUS SHORTCOMINGS IN CALCULATIONS USING MATERIAL MODELS IN THIS LARGE STRAIN REGION. BECAUSE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF CALCULATIONS IN UNDERSTANDING THE SHOCK RESPONSE OF SUBMARINE ...

  2. Modeling and Prediction of Ground Shock Induced by Penetrating Weapons in Spatially Random Geologic Media

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA04009

    We propose a stochastic-finite-element based methodology to address these requirements: (i) Characterize material variability; (ii) Quantify corresponding ground-shock variability; and (iii) Design instrumentation plan. The site is discretized into N finite-elements; rock properties over this domain are characterized as the components of an N-vector stochastic field. The probabilistic characterist ...

  3. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  4. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Versatile Maskless Patterning Technology For Cost-Effective Fabrication of Microelectronic Packaging Products

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) research project aims to develop a multi-resolution large-area maskless lithography system and process flow for fabricating electronic packages, such as integrated circuit packages, multi-chip modules, and printed circuit boards. This technology will feature an SLM as a programmable mask, and multiple projection lenses that perform imaging over a wid ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Assessing Status and Trends of Threatened Species from Uncertain Monitoring Data: Methodology and Software

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop and implement as software methods for entering, processing, and analyzing species distribution monitoring data, which is one of the most basic forms of biological information that comes from surveys, censuses, and other routine assessments. These methods will use basic monitoring data to (1) assess the status and trend ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Inexpensive, low-power, pressure-sensing multi-touch input devices for flexible displays

    SBC: Touchco, Inc.            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will address the core hardware and software issues necessary to yield a fully functioning multi-touch pressure-sensing screen by putting an Interpolating Force-Sensitive Resistance (IFSR) based sensor behind an electronic paper display. IFSR has significant advantages over other currently-available multi-touch solutions. These include ...

  9. A THERMO-CHEMICAL APPROACH TO LASER CUTTING OF THICK METALLIC SOLIDS

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MACHINING IS THE LARGEST SINGLE APPLICATION (OVER 50%) OF LASERS TO MATERIALS PROCESSING. LASER CUTTING OF METALLIC MATERIALS IS FINDING INCREASING USE IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS BUT IS GENERALLY LIMITED TO THIN SECTIONS (5MM). THICKER-SECTION METAL CUTTING WITH LASERS SUFFERS FROM SEVERAL DRAWBACKS THAT INCLUDE LACK OF HEAT PENETRATION, LARGE KERF WIDTH, POOR CUT QUALITY, AND PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Real-time, accurate OCR from Documents using Intra- and Inter-Frame Machine Learning

    SBC: CVISION Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EO

    This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project involves development of real-time algorithms for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) from documents. This real-time recognition (RT/OCR) system, to be fully developed under this SBIR award, performs recognition an order of magnitude fast ...
