  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  2. Malicious Logic Behavior Monitoring and Control System

    SBC: 2LRESEARCH            Topic: OSD04SP5

    This SBIR effort proposes to develop tools that enable a capability in tamper proof source code. The proposed methods will protect against several modes of attack including malicious programmers, source code viruses, and system worms. The tools and techniques proposed are based on the fundamental logical structure of the application under protection and offer dynamic monitor and control of runtim ...

  3. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  5. Non-Dissipative LES Design Tool for Turbulent Combustion and Acoustics Analysis of Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05178

    Combustion Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is a very promising approach for resolving acoustics in turbulent-reacting flows. CFD Research Corporation (CFDRC) has successfully developed and validated state-of-the-art Combustion LES software (CFD-ACE+) to analyze gas turbine acoustics, using unstructured grids with second-order temporal and spatial differencing. Still, unstructured LES has not yet matur ...

  6. A Comprehensive Modeling Tool for Cold Hearth Melting Processes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05130

    CFDRC proposes to develop a comprehensive, high fidelity commercial quality simulation tool for modeling the Cold Hearth Melting (CHM) processing of Titanium alloys. The code will accurately predict the transient temperature distribution, flow patterns, skull shape, species evaporation, and particle fates in the hearth region for a given set of dynamic operating conditions. The foundation for this ...

  7. Enhanced Ultra Compact Combustion Using Electrostatic Charging

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05182

    CFD Research has demonstrated improved atomization, mixing control and lower emissions using an electrostatic charged air-blast fuel injector retrofitable within the RR501-K U.S. Navy Shipboard gas turbine engine. Without altering current configurations electrostatic fuel injection and combustion charging could further reduce emissions, improve stability, enhance ignition and/or tailor thermal pr ...

  8. A New Method for Automation and Optimization of the Curve Fit Kinetics Generating Process

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05194

    Hydrocarbon combustion chemical kinetics are extremely complex, with detailed reaction mechanisms typically consist of thousands of reaction steps and hundreds of species. However, most reacting flow CFD simulations can only afford reduced global mechanisms with standard Arrhenius rates. Unfortunately, global mechanisms are typically only valid over limited operating ranges and cannot account fo ...

  9. Advanced Multidisciplinary Tool for Dynamic Loads Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05318

    Modern aerospace vehicles operate at high angles of attack and perform aggressive maneuvers, which lead to flow separation, turbulence, high dynamic loads problems such as buffet and flutter. Accurate CFD model-based simulation of these problems requires careful attention to fluid-grid movement, fluid-structure interfacing and turbulence. CFDRC proposes to develop and validate a novel structural-b ...

  10. Determination of Influence Boundaries in CFD from Acoustic Intensity Distribution

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF05249

    Using influence region technique in CFD has the advantage of simpler grid generation, fast computing time, and the facility of multiple equation sets or multiple flow solvers. We propose to develop a first principal based, graphic interactive method for the determination of influence boundaries. We will use combined a) theoretical, b) numerical solution to acoustic equation, c) correlation func ...
