  4. Improved Fidelity Predictions in Turbomachinery Components

    SBC: AeroDynamic Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF131162

    The increased demand for higher efficiency gas turbine engines is driving new designs capable of operating at higher temperatures and pressure ratios, in fewer stages, and with higher airfoil loads. These conditions pose a great challenge for turbomachinery designs. Without fast, reliable and accurate predictions, designers can compromise the durability, reliability and performance of next generat ...

  9. Evolutionary Design Optimization for Guided Weapon Concepts Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF182089

    When the United States enters conflicts throughout the world, guided weapons that can eliminate threats while minimizing collateral damage are a necessity for all branches of the DoD. Each weapon is designed for a specific mission, though there is no guarantee that the design is either optimized for that mission or robust to mission changes. The scope of the design parameter space and the ever-evo ...
