High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and DebrisSBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc. Topic: DTRA082005
The proposed Phase II effort investigates innovative finite element formulations, alternative structural modeling procedures and modern parallel computational strategies to improve the computational performance of high fidelity simulation software for modeling the progressive collapse behavior of blast damaged buildings. Its goal is to reduce the time required to compute and visualize high fideli ...SBIR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Standoff Sensing for Low Volatility Chemicals Using Terahertz Radiation-Enhanced-Emission-of-FluorescenceSBC: Zomega Terahertz Corporation Topic: DTRA092005
We propose a new active optical method to measure time-domain waveform of THz pulse in the vicinity of the target in an omni-directional manner. This method utilizes the THz radiation-enhanced-emission-of-fluorescence from laser-induced air plasma to detect the THz field, which enables the standoff sensing for low volatility chemicals using THz spectroscopy. We have demonstrated its capability of ...SBIR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc. Topic: N/A
ADVANCED STRUCTURAL MATERIALS USED IN THE FABRICATION OF SUBMARINES CAN SUSTAIN LARGE STRAINS DURING THE FORMATION PROCESS CAUSED BY EXPLOSIVE LOADINGS. THE COMPUTATIONAL SOLID MECHANICS COMMUNITY HAS RECENTRLY RECOGNIZED SERIOUS SHORTCOMINGS IN CALCULATIONS USING MATERIAL MODELS IN THIS LARGE STRAIN REGION. BECAUSE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF CALCULATIONS IN UNDERSTANDING THE SHOCK RESPONSE OF SUBMARINE ...SBIR Phase I 1989 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
