The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.
SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc. Topic: DTRA08006
Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...SBIR Phase II 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and DebrisSBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc. Topic: DTRA082005
An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency

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
