  1. FAILURE MECHANISMS IN COMPOSITE TURBINE BLADES

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THE COMPLEXITY OF GEOMETRY, LOADS AND MATERIAL SYSTEMS OF TURBINE BLADES, THE STRESS AND STRENGTH CHARACTERISTICS CAN NOT BE ACCURATELY PREDICTED BY EXISTING METHODS. THE COMPOSITE TURBINE BLADE STRENGTH CAPABILITIES ARE VERY MUCH DEPENDENT UPON THE CONSTITUENT MATERIAL PROPERTIES, PLY ORIENTATIONS AND STACKING SEQUENCE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A TECHNIQUE TO P ...

  2. MANUFACTURING COST ANALYSIS- GALLIUM ARSENIDE MMIC FOR PHASE ARRAY RADAR TRANSMIT/RECEIVER MODULES

    SBC: Anadigics Inc            Topic: N/A

    MMIC YIELD IS THE SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN DETERMINING BOTH CHIP COST AND LEVEL OF INTEGRATION. IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE YIELD, IT IS NECESSARY TO ESTABLISH A CONSISTENT, REPRODUCIBLE PROCESS CONTROL, COUPLED WITH CREATIVE CIRCUIT DESIGN TECHNIQUES USED TO CREATE SHIP SETS WHICH ARE TOLERANT TO PROCESS VARIATIONS. A LARGE PROPORTION OF THE FINAL COST FOR THE END PRODUCT IS RELATED TO THE ASSEMBLY AND FIN ...

  3. SOFTWARE SATURATION ECM TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Applications Resources Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH WILL PROVIDE AN INVESTIGATIVE STUDY AND DEVELOPMENT OF VARIOUS ELECTRONIC COUNTERMEASURE (ECM) TECHNIQUES TO DEGRADE THE PERFORMANCE OF DIGITALLY CONTROLLED THREAT WEAPON SYSTEMS THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOFTWARE ALGORITHMS DESIGNED TO SATURATE OR OVERLOAD THE THREAT. THE THREATS OF PRIMARY CONCERN ARE PASSIVE DETECTION/GUIDANCE SYSTEMS WHICH WILL RECEIVE SIGNALS EMITTED BY THE DETE ...

  4. ADA ROBUST SOFTWARE RELIABILITY DEMONSTRATION

    SBC: Applications Resources Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE EXTENT TO WHICH CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE ADA PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE CAN BE USED TO DETECT AND HANDLE HIDDEN SOFTWARE ERRORS WHICH WOULD OTHERWISE HALT PROGRAM EXECUTION. ADA'S TYPING, EXCEPTION HANDLING, AND INTERFACE CHECKIG PROVIDE THE TOOLDS FOR BUILDING SUCH ROBUTNESS INTO SOURCE CODE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DEMONSTRATION IS TO SHOW HOW ROBUTNESS ...

  5. BIAXIAL INTERFACE STRESS TRANSDUCER FOR HIGH OVERPRESSURES- DEVELOPMENT

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

    DEFINITION OF THE STRUCTURE-MEDIA INTERACTION (SMI) LOADS ON A BURIED STRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY IN ANALYZING THE SURVIVABILITY OF STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. ADVANCEMENT OF THE STATEOF-THE-ART IN THE MODELING OF SMI BEHAVIOR IS HAMPERED BY A LIMITED DATA BASE WHICH IS CONFINED TO OVERPRESSURES MUCH SMALLER THAN THOSE CURRENTLY OF INTEREST. THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND ...

  6. FUEL TANK ULLAGE VAPOR ANALYZER

    SBC: John Brown Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE VAPOR SPACE INSIDE AN AIRCRAFT FUEL TANK EITHER IS OR IS NOT FLAMMABLE (OR EXPLOSIVE) DEPENDING UPON THE PERCENTAGE OF FUEL VAPOR AND OF OXYGEN OF INERT GAS SUCH AS NITROGEN OR CARBON DIOXIDE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THESE PERCENTAGES WHEN TESTING THE EFFICACY OF EXPERIMENTAL INERTING MEASURES BY FIRING LIVE ROUNDS AT TEST TANKS; BUT THERE IS NO FAST, CONVENIENT, FIELD METHOD OF MEASURING THE ...

  7. HIGH TEMPERATURE DIESEL ENGINE PISTON CAP MATERIAL SYSTEMS

    SBC: Carboride Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP NEW OR IMPROVED ON KNOWN GRADIENT CERAMIC/ METALLIC COATINGS FOR APPLICATION ON DIESEL IRON OR STEEL PISTONS CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING 2000 DEF F COMBUSTION TEMPERATURES AND PROVIDING SIGNIFICANT THERMAL BARRIERS. THE TREND OF DIESEL ENGINE DEVELOPMENT AND PARTICULARLY THE LOW HEAT REJECTION (ADIABATIC) ENGINES TOWARDS HIGHER PISTON HEAD TEMPERATURES REQUIRES THE USE OF THE ...

  8. GROWTH OF LASER QUALITY AGGASE2

    SBC: Cleveland Crystals Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF GROWING AND HEAT TREATING CRYSTALS OF AGGASE(2) TO YIELD OPTICAL ELEMENTS OF SUFFICIENT SIZE AND QUALITY AND SUITABLE FOR HIGH POWER NONLINEAR APPLICATIONS IS EXAMINED. THE HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS MATERIAL IS REVIEWED WHICH POINTS OUT THE MANY PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN CRYSTAL GROWTH AND IN ELIMINATING UNDESIRABLE SCATTERING CENTERS IN THE GROWN CRYSTALS. BY ANALYZING T ...

  9. ADAPTIVE GRIDS FOR RAVEN

    SBC: Ecodynamics Research Associate            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS FOR A STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF ADAPTIVE GRID ALGORITHMS FOR IMPLEMENTATION, REFINEMENT AND INCORPORATION INTO AN EXISTING TIME DEPENDENT THREE DIMENSIONAL NAVIER-STOKES COMPUTER MODEL, THE RAVEN CODE. THE STUDY WILL INVOLVE ASSESSMENT AND/OR EXTENSION OF EXISTING ADAPTIVE GRID TECHNIQUES TO DETERMINE THAT WHICH IS OPTIMAL AND EFFICIENT FOR THE PHASE II IMPLEMENTATION IN RAVEN, ...

  10. IR FOCAL PLANE ARRAY MULTIPLEXING- NEW APPROACH

    SBC: Electronic Decisions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT PROBLEM IN THE AREA OF IR FOCAL PLANE ARRAY IMAGING IS THE FAST AND EFFICIENT MULTIPLEXING AND PROCESSING OF THE SIGNALS FROM THE DETECTOR ARRAY. A NEW APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM UTILIZING THE RECENTLY DEVELOPED ACOUSTIC CHARGE TRANSPORT (ACT) DEVICE IS PRESENTED. THE ACT DEVICE COMBINES SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE AND CHARGE TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGIES TO ACHIEVE A LOW-NOISE, HIGH-THROUGHPUT MULT ...
