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

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    The proposed Phase II effort investigates innovative finite element formulations, alternative structural modeling procedures and modern parallel computational strategies to improve the computational performance of high fidelity simulation software for modeling the progressive collapse behavior of blast damaged buildings. Its goal is to reduce the time required to compute and visualize high fideli ...

  2. Standoff Sensing for Low Volatility Chemicals Using Terahertz Radiation-Enhanced-Emission-of-Fluorescence

    SBC: Zomega Terahertz Corporation            Topic: DTRA092005

    We propose a new active optical method to measure time-domain waveform of THz pulse in the vicinity of the target in an omni-directional manner. This method utilizes the THz radiation-enhanced-emission-of-fluorescence from laser-induced air plasma to detect the THz field, which enables the standoff sensing for low volatility chemicals using THz spectroscopy. We have demonstrated its capability of ...

  3. HARDENED IMPROVED DYNAMIC RESPONSE DECOY

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF IMPROVING DECOY PENETRATION AID (PENAID) PERFORMANCE BY SUPPLYING MEANS TO 1) ALLOW FOR DUAL CENTER OF GRAVITY (CG) LOCATION, THEREBY ENABLING INDEPENDENT FULFILLMENT OF IMPULSE BALANCING AND REENTRY STABILITY REQUIREMENTS; AND/OR 2) COUNTERACT DECOY CONING BY SENSING ITS PRESENCE, AND CORRECTING THE ANGULAR MOMENTUM OF THE DECOY TO ELIMINATE CONING.

  6. A PROPOSAL TO INVESTIGATE PHYSICAL LIMITING MECHANISMS IN NUCLEAR EXPLOSION INDUCED LIGHTNING (NEIL)

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    NUCLEAR EXPLOSION INDUCED LIGHTNING (NEIL) REPRESENTS A POTENTIALLY SEVERE THREAT TO MILITARY SYSTEMS REQUIRED TO SURVIVE AND FUNCTION AFTER EXPOSURE IN THE SOURCE REGION OF A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION. WHEREAS THERE EXISTS SOME UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THE NATURE AND MAGNITUDE OF THE THREAT, ITS EXISTENCE IS CONCLUSIVELY DOCUMENTED IN THE FILM RECORD OF ATMOSPHERIC NUCLEAR TESTS IN THE PACIFIC DURING THE 1950'S ...

  7. Engineered Substrates for “Zero-Penalty” Radiation Hardening of Ultra Deep Submicron Commercial Processes

    SBC: RADIATION ASSURED DEVICES, INC.            Topic: DTRA08003

    In this proposed Phase II program we will build on the successful Phase I program where we for the first time implemented engineered epitaxial layers based on nanostructure technology that were used to harden commercial silicon devices against radiation by minimizing collected photocurrents (electron-hole pairs) via recombination centers where we demonstrated that improved radiation hardness could ...

  8. A Radargrammetric Mapping system Using A Priori Info

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Vexcel proposes a system for extracting terrain elevation from large stereo SAR databases using a priori elevation map data. This system will accelerate, automate, and improve the accuracy and robustness of radargrammetricnprocessing for data acquired from wide spectrum of existing and planned SAR platforms.

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
