  4. Femtosecond-Laser Fabrication of Waveguides in Laser Materials

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal includes, for the first time, integrated theoretical models and experimental investigations to simulate and demonstrate femtosecond-laser-fabricated waveguides in crystalline dielectric materials. The numerical models will predict refractive-index changes potentially induced by self-focusing, heat accumulation, thermal stress, plasma formation and relaxation, and ablation. The influe ...

  5. Computational Models for Nonlinear Aeroelastic Systems

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: T201

    Clear Science Corp. and Duke University propose to develop and demonstrate new and efficient computational methods of modeling nonlinear aeroelastic systems. The methods will extend the scope of multi-disciplinary computational tools like NASA Dryden's STARS by augmenting linear eigenmode stability algorithms and coupled time-marching techniques. The objective is low-dimensional models that acc ...

  6. Automated Contingency Management for Advanced Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: T101

    Automated Contingency Management (ACM), or the ability to confidently and autonomously adapt to fault conditions with the goal of still achieving mission objectives, can be considered the ultimate technological goal of a health management system. In an innovative Phase I STTR program, Impact Technologies and Georgia Institute of Technology developed a prototype Test Bench software for developing ...

  7. Inhibition of Biofilm Formation Using Novel Nanostructured Surfaces

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: T501

    Biofilms are ubiquitous in the environment. Few surfaces resist biofilm formation, most promote it. Biofilm formation poses problems in water systems as they can clog pipes and pores, block filters, reduce heat transfer, and in general restrict flow. Their metabolic products can aid corrosion, even of stainless steel. In potable water systems, both their metabolic products and the bacteria or ...

  8. Coatings for Fuel Cell Propulsion Compressor Bearings

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: T301

    Fuel cell air handling systems require clean and contaminant-free inlet air, which dictates that oil-free, motorized, compressor/expander systems should be used. Although there is no sliding contact in the steady state operation of the foil bearing, occasional contact between the foil and journal surfaces at startup and shutdown and during overload situations, could limit the bearing life. There ...

  9. Nonlinear Aerodynamics-Structure Time Simulation for HALE Aircraft Design/Analysis

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: T202

    Time simulation of a nonlinear aerodynamics model (NA) developed at Virginia Tech coupled with a nonlinear structure model (NS) is proposed as a design/analysis methodology for highly flexible HALE/morphing aircraft. With this nonlinear aero-structure (NAS) approach, large structure deformations and static/dynamic aeroelastic responses of such flexible aircraft can be properly accounted for inclu ...
