  1. High Cycle Fatigue Testing of Turbine Blades Under Biaxial Loading


    Although technologies derived under the Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) initiative should result in higher performance of gas turbine engines, the durability of engine components continues to be one of the most important design issues which impacts their affordability and robustness. It is currently very difficult to measure or predict the fatigue life of engine com ...

  2. Ambient Light Control Using Guest Host Liquid Crystal-Dye Systems

    SBC: Alphamicron, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Continuous attenuation of ambient light without image distortion is of great importance in helmet mounted displays. To accomplish this, we propose a device based on liquid crystal-dichroic dye mixture. The system is electrically controllable, light weight, with full grey scale capability for all light conditions. It addresses all of the requirements and restrictions of visor based helmet mounte ...

  3. Armament Research

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

    Recent efforts in the target vulnerability community (fixed ground targets, mobile ground targets, and aircraft) have focused on enhancing the blast and fragmentation modeling from weapon detonations. This includes modeling propagation of the detonation effects from the weapon through their interaction with the target geometry, to the development of loads on and response of the target structure. ...

  4. Slipper Wear/Gouging Phenomena

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

    The objective of this work is to develop analytical techniques to characterize wear and gouging phenomena of slippers at speeds up to hypersonic and demonstrate means to evaluate or reduce slipper wear/gouging. Specifically, we will develop analytical techniques that can be used to predict slipper wear patterns and gouging phenomena throughout the sled velocity regime to Mach 10. This will inclu ...

  5. Ion Beam Treatment for Metal Matrix Composites

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New materials such as continuous fiber reinforced aluminum matrix composites exceptional performance, but often at the expense of incompatibility with conventional joining techniques. Spacecraft structures require high stiffness for stable structures and launch vibration resistance, as well as low outgassing characteristics, especially when cryogenic sensors are in use on the spacecraft. Solutio ...

    SBIR Phase I 1997 Department of DefenseAir Force


    Austral Engineering and Software, Inc. proposes to develop a computer platform for simulation-and-optimization-based design of multiple-stage manufacturing processes. Phase I will use metal forming processes to demonstrate feasibility of embedding analytical models of basic transport phenomena into design models that include geometric, microstructure, and processing features. Each stage of a me ...

  7. Cognitive Capacity Measurement System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Cybernet Systems proposes the development of a measurement system for measuring an indivudual's cognitive capacity and detecting cognitive overload. While much research has been done in this area, there remains to be developed a comprehensive system capable of integrating the many different parameters of physiological, psychological, and task performance data that must be taken into account when ...

  8. Development of a Transportable High-Speed GC for the Assessment of Toxins in Breath

    SBC: Chromatofast, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR proposal is to develop a technically innovative high-speed GC for analysis of breath samples to assess body burden and metabolism of toxins. This instrument will be transportable yet deliver laboratory quality results which is lacking in currently available transportable GC's. Detection limits of 0.01 parts-per-billion will be achieved with this instrument. It will ...

  9. Collaborative Engineering Real Time Data Base Correlation Tool

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

    The objective of this effort is to define key technical requirements, identify enabling technologies, conduct technology experiments, develop a system specification, provide an implementation approach, and develop a demonstration plan for a Collaborative Engineering Real Time Database Correlation Tool to support the development and correlation of databased required for the success of a collaborati ...

  10. Ultra-Wideband Waveguide Bends Using Continuously Varying Dielectric (CVD) Materials

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Bends in waveguides are a problem for high-voltage Ultra-Wideband (UWB) systems. The difficulty arises because only a straight section of standard transmission line can support a pure TEM mode. And a pure TEM mode is necessary to preserve the risetime of the transmitted impulse. When there is a bend in the waveguide, the transmitted signal is a broader impulse than the incident signal. This ca ...
