  2. Innovative DMFC Power Supply for NDI Hand Tools

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF141204

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force regularly uses eddy current and ultrasonic NDI equipment which can be configured with a wide range of battery chemistries. Many of these battery chemistries, which include toxic heavy metals, are detrimental to the environment and can be difficult and costly to dispose of. The Air Force is seeking a new power supply for applicable NDI equipment that reduces the environment ...

  3. Residual Stress Determination for Cold Expanded Holes

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF141207

    ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively determine of the cold work process has been applied to a hole, and if the results are within process specif ...

  7. Innovative Burn Resistant Material System

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF131169

    ABSTRACT: Liquid rocket propulsion systems require the use of high pressure LOX/GOX, and therefore have the need for LOX/ GOX compatible materials. This is especially true with LOX turbopumps which are exposed to or submerged in LOX and exposed to high pressure-high temperature GOX during operation. LOX/GOX compatible materials are also needed for injectors, valves, and oxygen rich turbines. L ...
