  1. SUPERSONIC COMBUSTION ENHANCEMENT BY A NONEQUILIBRIUM PLASMA JET

    SBC: Aerochem Research            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A NONEQUILIBRIUM PLASMA JET, DEVELOPED AT AEROCHEM OVER THE PAST QUARTER CENTURY, AS A MEANS OF ENHANCING IGNITION AND FLAME STABILIZATION IN AIR-BREATHING ENGINES AND IN SUPERSONIC COMBUSTION. SPECIFICALLY, WE WILL DETERMINE; IF IGNITION OF LEAN OR LOW PRESSURE MIXTURES CAN BE MADE MORE RELIABLE; IF FLAME HOLDING LIMITS CAN BE BROADENED, E.G., ...

  6. TUNABLE CW LASER FOR THE 1.08 MICRON REGION

    SBC: General Optronics Corp            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. AN EXTREME TEMPERATURE, ULTRACLEAN RADIANT FURNACE

    SBC: PRINCETON SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO DEVELOP A COOL-WALLED RADIANT FURNACE FOR OPERATION AT EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURES (UP TO 3300 K IN THE PROTOTYPE VERSION OF THIS PROPOSAL). IT WILL EMPLOY REFRACTORY METAL ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE HEATERS IN CONFIGURATIONS THAT PRESENT NEAR ONE HUNDRED PERCENT VIEWFACTORS AS SEEN FROM THE OBJECT BEING HEATED. THE RADIANT FLUX TO THE WORKPIECE WILL BE EXTREMELY UNIFORM, PRODUCIN ...

  8. CONTAMINANT RETURN FLUX EXPERIMENT AND MODELING

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

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DEVELOPING A RETURN FLUX EXPERIMENT OF VEHICLE EMITTED GASES, VIA COLLISIONS WITH THEAMBIENT ATMOSPHERE, IS PRESENTED. THE SENSORS AND SOURCES REQUIREMENTS ARE DEVELOPED IN CONJUNCTION WITH NECESSARY MODELING PARAMETERS ASSESSMENT. THE EXPERIMENT PACKAGE IS DESIGNED FOR DEPLOYMENT IN THE SHUTTLE PAYLOAD BAY. THE SENSORS TO BE EVALUATED INCLUDE A PRESSURE GAUGE WITH DIRECT ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. IMPROVED CONTAMINATION MODELING ANALYSIS

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

    EXISTING CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENT MODELS FOR SPACECRAFT UTILIZE A SINGLE COLLISION SCATTERING MODEL TO PREDICT FLUXES OF CONTAMINANTS ON SURFACES AND CONTRIBUTIONS TO OPTICAL LINES-OF-SIGHT. THEY ALSO DO NOT INCLUDE THE RAM PRESSURE BUILDUP OF AMBIENT GASES NEAR SPACECRAFT SURFACES. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH IS PRESENTED THAT UPDATES THE GAS DYNAMICS MODELING OF CONTAMINANTS AND AMBIENT ATMOSPHERE IN ...

  10. DIRECT COMPUTATION OF TURBULENCE NOISE

    SBC: Aerochem Research            Topic: N/A

    DIRECT COMPUTATION OF TURBULENCE NOISE IS A LOGICAL APPLICATION FOR ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS, CFD, PROGRAMS RUN ON SUPERCOMPUTERS. THIS WOULD ELIMINATE THE HIGHLY EMPIRICAL ASPECTS OF PRESENT NOISE PREDICTION TECHNIQUES AND ENABLE STUDY OF ADVANCED HYPERSONIC PROPULSION SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, MANY OF THE SAME PERSISTENT PROBLEMS OF IMPLEMENTATION THAT EXIST IN AEROACOUSTIC THEORY AND MEASU ...
