  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. Digital Data Recorder for Gauges in High Speed Weapons During Survivability Testing

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092014

    This program seeks to develop and demonstrate, in severe mechanical shock environments, a new state-of-the-art data recorder for environmental measurements of warhead systems. The developed DSR data record will include 4 internal channels for measuring acceleration, weapon case strain, or pressure and 6 external input digital channels for other user defined measurements. High sampling rates will ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...

  6. Hardness Validation by Verified Analysis (HV2A) Methodology for Advanced Materials

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Ktech proposes to develop a HV2A methodology for the assessment of nuclear weapon effects on new materials that are candidates for inclusion in strategic and tactical military systems. The methodology (1) provides an estimate of the system requirements and operation environments for each application specific material/structure, (2) establishes the critical response modes, (3) provides a framework ...

  7. Moisture Effects on Hazardous Material Concentrations

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: DTRA04007

    This program will provide an improved understanding of the effects of atmospheric moisture on hazardous material and define methods to better model these effects in the DTRA HPAC model. The work will evaluate the interaction of moisture and hazardous material in the HPAC model based on two levels of coupling the transport equations for hazardous material and moisture. These evaluations will be com ...

  8. Agent Defeat Weapon Technology

    SBC: POSITRONICS RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA04012

    Penetrating radiation holds the greatest promise as a non-intrusive means of destroying biological and chemical agents inside sealed containers, if the appropriate form is used. There are two recognized means including exposure to neutrons or application of pulses of gamma rays. Because of the pervasiveness of neutrons and the extremely large threat of collateral damage to humans, neutrons are onl ...

  9. Advanced Power Sources for X-ray Simulators

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: DTRA04010

    Nuclear weapons effects simulators depend upon capacitor banks for storage and delivery of energy for the radiation sources. Power conditioning elements are typically located in the power flow chain between the storage capacitors and the radiation sources, and these elements generally constitute a major portion of the overall cost of the simulator facility. Low inductance capacitors offer the po ...

  10. 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 ...
