  1. A FUEL/AIR DRIVE FLUX COMPRESSOR POWER UNIT FOR ELECTROTHERMAL GUNS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Ktech Team proposes a feasibility study of a fuel/air driven flux compression power unit (FCPU) for electric guns. Through variations of inductance gradients and through changes in scale, the proposed technology will be applicable to both electrothermal/chemical and electromagnetic guns. In the Phase 1 effort, we develop simulation models to predict the performance of the flux compression po ...

  2. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  3. EMP AND HPM SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Integrated Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Survival of present day microelectronic circuits depends on their protection from self generated and external electromagnetic interference. This proposal is oriented toward the class of interference generally referred to as overvoltage transients. Means for mitigating these transients include gas discharge tubes, and various solid state devices. Each of these has their own advantages in particu ...

  5. Laser Turbulence Measurements in the LB/TS

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

    Turbulence of gas flows by its very nature is one of the most difficult things to model and measure. We propose to develop a new way of measuring the turbulence and to compare these measurements to predictions using the k-epsilon model. Typical measurements, in the past, use smoke, Schlierin or shadow graph techniques to visually infer turbulence characteristics. These features are either motio ...

  6. Low Cost, Portable X-Ray Simulator Development

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We propose, in Phase I and Phase II, to build an X-ray simulator capable of easy transportation between sites which can be built for a low cost (

  7. Microcomputer-Based Collateral-Effects Source Model for Hazardous Material Dispersal in Vent Plumes from Attacks on Hardened Structures

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

    THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS DEVELOPING THE OPERATIONAL MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENT MODEL WITH GRID ADAPTIVITY (OMEGA) TO PREDICT REAL-TIME DISPERSAL OF HAZARDOUS AEROSOLS. ONE REQUIREMENT FOR OMEGA OR ANY SIMILAR MODEL IS TO PREDICT COLLATERAL EFFECTS FROM STRIKES ON NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) FACILITIES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE ESSENTIAL FE ...

  9. NOVEL UNDERWATER SHOCK WAVE MEASUREMENT

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL DEVELOP AND APPLY A NEW EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH TO MEASURE UNDERWATER TIME RESOLVED SHOCK WAVE PROFILES RESULTING FROM UNDERWATER OR SURFACE DETONATIONS. EXPLICIT DATA REQUIRED TO DESCRIBE UNDERWATER SHOCK WAVE EFFECTS ON TARGETS WILL BE OBTAINED USING A RECENTLY DEVELOPED PIEZOELECTRIC POLYMER STRESS GAUGE. A UNIQUE EXPERIMENTAL CONFIGURATION IS PROPOSED, THAT WILL ALLOW SH ...

  10. Nuclear Weapons Effects Phenomenology

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The nuclear weapons community has traditionally focused on the next generation or level of weapon capability complimented by gathering and analysis of actual test data. Now, with the cessation of actual weapons testing, there is an increased need to use the actual test data in modeling techniques to better understand the phenomenology and potential effects of nuclear weapons. The first phase of ...
