  2. Integration of Complex Geometry, 3D Woven Preforms via Innovative Stitching Technique

    SBC: T.E.A.M., INC.            Topic: H701

    Thick, 3D woven carbon/phenolic composites offer potential improvement over legacy thermal protection systems (TPS) for re-entry vehicle heat shield applications. However due to the scale and complexity of typical re-entry vehicle structures, it is likely that multiple 3D woven panels would need to laid up to create the overall heat shield, creating a potential weak spots at the panel joints. ...

  3. Domain Specific Language for Geant4 Parallelization for Space-Based Applications

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S501

    A major limiting factor in HPC growth is the requirement to parallelize codes to leverage emerging architectures, especially as single core performance has plateaued and architectures like short vector units (e.g., AVX), Intel Xeon Phi, and GPUs are embraced by hardware manufactures. The proposed SIMD/SIMT vectorization tools for emerging accelerator-based compute architectures will impact a world ...

  6. Improved Attachment Design for Ceramic Turbine Blades Via Hybrid Concepts

    SBC: N&R ENGINEERING            Topic: A307

    This proposal presents a hybrid metal-CMC turbine blade. A SiC/SiC CMC airfoil section will be bonded to a single crystal superalloy root section in order to mitigate risks associated with an all-CMC blade inserted in a superalloy disk. This allows current blade attachment technology (SX blade with a dovetail attachment to a slotted Ni disk) to be used with a ceramic airfoil. The bond between ...

  7. Microfluidic System for CO2 Reduction to Hydrocarbons in Microgravity

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: H101

    In the combined Phase I and Phase II programs Faraday and our MIT collaborators will demonstrate the feasibility of low-cost fabrication of high-efficiency, microchannel-plate reactors for the electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 to CH4. The proposed concept is founded on FARADAYIC® Through-Mask Etching of metallic (e.g., stainless steel and titanium) substrates to form suitable microchannel el ...

  8. UAS Power Amplifier for Extended Range of Non-Payload Communication Devices (UPEND)

    SBC: Nu Waves Ltd.            Topic: A201

    The integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS) requires a robust, reliable communication link between the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and its operators. Constant communication is a necessity. New and innovative approaches are needed to provide high-bandwidth Control and Non-Payload Communications (CNPC). To enable the CNPC system and increase the util ...

  9. Compact Kinetic Mechanisms for Petroleum-Derived and Alternative Aviation Fuels

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: A303

    To be useful for computational combustor design and analysis using tools like the National Combustion Code (NCC), low-dimensional chemical kinetic mechanisms for modeling of real fuel combustion chemistry must be sufficiently compact so that they can be utilized in multi-dimensional, multi-physics, reacting computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. Despite advances in CFD-appropriate kinetic ...
