  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. Insensitive Munitions Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: 3D RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: A05201

    3D Research Corporation and Aerojet, Incorporated, propose a novel approach to munitions modeling to assure the munitions meets Insensitive Munitions (IM) requirements of DoDD 5000.2-R and MIL-STD-2105C. IM validation of munitions requires extensive testing, and it is necessary to develop analytical approaches which accelerate the design process for IM compliance. The proposed approach evaluates ...

  3. Helicopter Remote Manipulation of External Slingloads (HERMES)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A05057

    Helicopter operations in low visibility conditions and sling load operations continue to add risk to aviation operations. If slingloads could be picked up without use of a ground crew, lives could be saved. In addition, a sensor that could detect obstacles as well as the load would help in low-visibility conditions. We propose to develop such a system. It will include the mechanical structures nec ...

  4. A Novel, Bio-inspired Advanced Microfluidic Power System (BioAMPS)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A04139

    Our objective is to develop (model, design, fabricate and test) a novel, Bio-inspired Advanced Microfluidic Power System (BioAMPS) to extract energy from biofuels. Unlike conventional technologies, BioAMPS will be compact/lightweight, require little or no logistical support (re-supply), reusable and eco-friendly. Phase I will deliver a biobattery system Product Design Requirement (PDR) document ...

  5. Wavelet-Based Vorticity Transport Technology for Rotorcraft Flowfield Analysis

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05065

    A hybrid Eulerian vorticity transport/Navier-Stokes methodology is proposed for the accurate prediction of unsteady rotorcraft vortical flow features with particular attention to the efficient transport of rotor wake vorticity to the farfield with minimal dissipation. High-fidelity Navier-Stokes modeling will be used for the capturing of near-body flow features, while a novel, first principles, wa ...

  7. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Military helmets are designed based on costly and time consuming laboratory ballistic tests, firing range, and forensic data. Until now advanced medical imaging and computational modeling tools have not been adequately utilized in the design and optimization of military helmets. The overall objective of this project is to develop 3D medical imaging techniques for the brain ballistic injury model a ...

  8. Development and Validation of a Model for Gelled Hypergolic Reactions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05146

    A model that characterizes the flow patterns within gelled hypergolic reaction chambers, and its rigorous validation with prior and current engine development data, is proposed. Phase I modeling will leverage recent breakthroughs associated with hypergolic gel combustion stochastic turbulent dispersion, droplet breakup and a heuristic collision and evaporation methodology. During Phase I a reduc ...

  9. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An enabling technology for the further advancement of gelled propulsion is the development of tools to render the development of propellant formulation ...

  10. Development of Neural Protectants Against Organophosphorus Compound Toxicity

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05130

    We propose to develop a novel methodology to systematically develop therapeutic compounds for treatment of organophosphate (OP) induced neurotoxicity. A core hypothesis is that combined temporal measurement and computational analysis of cellular processes is needed to understand neurotoxicity and discover novel therapeutics/protectants. We propose a combination of experiment and computation whose ...
