  1. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED FAN BLADE CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Advanced Structures Technology            Topic: N/A

    AN ADVANCED TURBINE ENGINE FAN BLADE CONTAINMENT SYSTEM USING CERAMIC TILES ON A POLYMER FIBER BACKING RING IS PRO- POSED. THE PROPOSED CERAMIC/POLYMER-FIBER SYSTEM HAS PROVEN MORE WEIGHT EFFECTIVE THAN MONOLITHIC METALLIC OR POLYMER MATERIALS FOR STOPPING PENETRATION OF BALLISTIC MUNITIONS PROJECTILES. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THIS TECHNOLOGY, ORIGINAL-LY DEVELOPED FOR AIRCRAFT ARMOR SYSTEMS, WILL DEC ...

  3. Highway Capacity Software in Portable Graphical User Interface (GUI) Format

    SBC: Catalina Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) has, for the past 10 years, been the principal tool for applying the analysis methods of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). The HCS has been DOS-based with a very limited user interface. With a number of new research materials being produced, and an approved plan in place which leads to publication of an HCM 2000 and accompanying software, there is a strong op ...

  4. IN-PLACE AIR PERMEAMETER FOR OPEN-GRADED DRAINAGE LAYERS

    SBC: Geo-systems Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID FIELD TEST IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE PERMEABILITY OF OPEN-GRADED ROAD BASES AND OTHER DRAINAGE LAYERS. THE SAME TEST ALSO SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO EVALUATE PERMEABILITIES OF OTHER EXPOSED PAVEMENT LAYERS INCLUDING THOSE COMPOSED OF BITUMINOUS OR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETES, AS AN INDEX TO PERMEATION AND POSSIBLY TO DETERIORATION. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE PERMEABILITY BE EVALUATED THROUGH USE ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH HEAT FLUX HEAT EXCHANGER

    SBC: Applied Thermodynamic Systems            Topic: N/A

    GAS-TO-LIQUID HEAT EXCHANGERS FIND APPLICATION IN NEARLY EVERY ENERGY CONVERSION AND PROCESS SYSTEM. HOWEVER, DUE TO LOW HEAT FLUXES, THEY ARE EXCESSIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. LOW HEAT FLUXES ARE CAUSED PRIMARILY BY LOW GAS-SIDE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A NOVEL FLUIDIZED BED HEAT EXCHANGER WHICH HAS SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER HEAT FLUXES THAN CONVENTIONAL HE ...

  9. Dynamic Firing Zone Imaging System

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    An automated dynamic firing zone generation imaging system is needed to increase the effectiveness and utility of shipboard weapon systems. The current manual firing zone definition process is manpower intensive, complex, and cannot account for motion or changing topside configuration. These limitations greatly restrict the lethality and utility of shipboard weapons. This project proposes a dyna ...
