  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. COMPUTER GENERATED TARGET/WEAPON INTERACTION GRAPHICS

    SBC: Physics Mathematics &            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH CONCERNS THE USE OF COMPUTER ANIMATION FOR SIMULATING WEAPON/TARGET INTERACTION PHENOMENA. SUCH PHENOMENA ARE VERY DYNAMIC BY NATURE, AND ARE THUS GOOD APPLICATIONS FOR COMPUTER ANIMATION. THE FIRST STEP IN COMPUTER ANIMATION IS TO GENERATE A SET OF STATIC IMAGES THAT INCORPORATE HIDDEN SURFACE REMOVAL, LIGHT SOURCES, SHADING, AND OTHER SOPHISTICATED COLOR GRAPHICS RENDERING TECHNIQU ...

  7. IN CHAMBER PRODUCTION OF TITANIUM ALLOY FOIL BY THE RAPID SOLIDIFICATION TECHNIQUE CALLED MELT OVERFLOW

    SBC: Ribbon Technology Corpon            Topic: N/A

    THE PRODUCTION OF A TITANITUM ALLOY FOIL FOR USE AS A BASE FOR METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES SUCH AS SILICON CARBIDE - TITANIUM IS TO BE INVESTIGATED. THE ALLOY TI-6AL-4V WILL BE CAST IN A VACUUM CHAMBER USING THE MELT OVERFLOW PROCESS. MELT OVERFLOW IS A VARIATION OF THE RAPID SOLIDIFICATION TECHNIQUE MELT SPIN AND IS CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING QUENCHING RATES OF UP TO 10(5) K/SEC. THE ADAPTABILITY OF THE ME ...

  8. GROUND MOBILE TARGET DISCRIMINATION

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY UTILIZES THE EXPERIENCE GAINED ON MPS, CSB, D2B PEACEKEEPER CONCEALMENT BASING STUDIES AND RECENT SMALL MISSILE CONCEALMENT STUDIES. SENSORS, DISCRIMINANTS AND PHYSICAL SIGNATURES APPLICABLE TO AN ICBM IN CONJUNCTION WITH A TRANSPORTER/LAUNCHER ARE SCREENED FOR APPLICABILITY TO BALLISTIC MISSILE DELIVERY SYSTEM SENSOR PLATFORMS. THREE VARIATIONS OF SENSOR PLATFORMS ARE EVALUATED AGAINST ...

  9. AN ADVANCED VIDEO SYSTEM FOR BEHIND-PANEL FRAGMENTATION STUDIES

    SBC: Special Illumination Systems I            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL OPTICAL DIAGNOSTIC APPARATUS FOR BEHIND-PANEL FRAGMENTATION STUDIES IS PROPOSED. THE GOAL OF THE WORK WILL BE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT MEASUREMENTS OF THE FRAGMENT MASS, VELOCITY, TRAJECTORY CAN BE MADE WITH A SYSTEM WHICH REQUIRES AN ABSOLUTE MINIMUM OF OPERATOR INTERVENTION. THE INITIAL DATA-GATHERING WILL UTILIZE THE CAPABILITIES OF AN ORTHOGONAL, BACK-LIT, MULTI-FRAME RECORDING CAMERA. HIGH ...

  10. ELEVATED TEMPERATURE CRACK GROWTH STUDIES OF ADVANCED TITANIUM ALUMINIDE

    SBC: SYSTRAN FEDERAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ORDERED INTERMETALLIC TITANIUM ALUMINIDE TI(3)AL ALLOYED WITH NIO0 BIUM POSSESSES ATTRACTIVE HIGH TEMPERATURE PROPERTIES AND MODERATE LOW TEMPERTURE DUCTIVILITY, BUT APPLICATION IS LIMITED TO STATIC COMPONENTS IN AIRCRAFT GAS TURBINE ENGINES. TO EXTEND THEIR USE TO ROTATING PARTS OF TURBINE ENGINES, BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF LIFE LIMITING PROCESSES SUCH AS CREEP/FATIGUE CRACK GROWTH AND FRATURE IS R ...
