  1. Computational Wind Tunnel: A Design Tool for Rotorcraft

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A210

    Rotorcraft engineers traditionally use the wind tunnel to evaluate and finalize designs. Insufficient correlation between wind tunnel results and flight tests, have been often attributed in part to uncertainty in blockage corrections. Estimation of rotor blockage is significantly more complex than bluff body blockage as the correction depends on operational characteristics such as rotor RPM and ...

  2. Automated Modeling and Simulation Tool for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: VizTek, Inc            Topic: N08T019

    Today’s Warfighter often carries an inordinate load that can lead to injuries and encumbered performance. Equipment is distributed among squad members with little, if any regard for differences in strength and anthropometry. Consequently, the current focus on human-centric design requires a modeling and simulation tool that can reduce the load Warfighters carry and can help distribute equipmen ...

  3. Multiple Indication Adjuvants

    SBC: BIOPROTECTION SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: CBD08105

    The objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy and broad applicability of the human immune-modulating alphaGal Adjuvant Technology for antiviral vaccine development. We will use viral vaccine candidates for the select Category A viral pathogens Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV, filovirus), Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV, bunyavirus), and Lassa virus (LV, arenavirus), to evaluate the adjuvant pot ...

  4. Variable Compliance Split Ring Transducer

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N07T035

    Etrema Products, Inc. and Applied Research Laboratory at The Pennsylvania State University demonstrated during Phase I that by utilizing the “delta-E” effect in magnetostrictive materials, the resonant frequency of a split ring transducer can be shifted by over 200 Hz for a low frequency transducer. A variable reluctance driver helps achieve source levels in excess of 210 dB with a potential ...

  5. High Frequency Broadband Hybrid Transducer/Amplifier

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N07075

    The Phase I effort successfully developed an integrated magnetostrictive transducer/amplifier module concept to meet these performance goals: broad bandwidth (7-30 kHz), compact size (approximately ½ wavelength at the center frequency), at least 30 Watts output power, and high efficiency. Conceptual designs of the transducer, amplifier, and the integrated transducer module developed during Phas ...

  6. Spatially and Temporally Resolved Temperature and Species Concentration Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors using fs-CARS

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF073059

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to develop femtosecond (fs) laser-based coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy for providing quantitative high-speed (1-10 kHz) temperature and species concentration measurements in unsteady reacting flows. The initial frequency-spread dephasing rate of the Raman coherence induced by the ultrafast (~85 fs) Stokes and pump ...

  7. Picosecond-Laser-Based Fiber-Coupled Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) Spectroscopy System

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF073134

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to perform temperature and species measurements in both H2-air and C2H4-air flames using a fiber-coupled picosecond CARS system. Single-mode and step-index multi-mode fibers will be investigated for the delivery of the picosecond lasers to pump the target species and also to collect the generated CARS signal. The key element of our propose ...

  8. Development of a Piezoelectric Active Acoustic Liner for Jet Engine Noise Reduction

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N08142

    Acoustic liners are presently used for attenuating combustion and turbine noise radiated from jet engines. Current acoustic liners are passive by nature. This is a drawback because they are only able to absorb acoustic energy over a limited bandwidth. A possible solution to this drawback is the development of an active acoustic liner. The main advantage of this concept is the ability to tune the ...

  9. Schlieren Based Seedless PIV for High Frequency Cavity Flow Control Applications in Large Scale Wind Tunnel Facilities

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071264

    Flow control using high-frequency actuation to reduce acoustic and vibrational loading from weapons bays and sensor apertures requires a diagnostic approach that can capture instantaneous flowfield data at rates of several kHz. Moreover, large wind tunnel facilities suffer the difficulty of particle seeding for techniques such as Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV). The opportunity addressed by t ...

  10. Investigation of Combustion Instability in Augmentors Using High-Speed PIV and PLIF

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071173

    The objective of this Phase-II effort is to build and deliver a high-speed laser system for performing particle-image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) of OH at rates of 5 to 10 kHz in augmentor test facilities. This state-of-the-art laser system will allow velocity and 2-D flame radical measurements for understanding the complex spatio-temporal development of instab ...
