  1. Compact, High Performance Compressor Diffusers for Small Gas Turbine Engines Requiring a Wide Operating Range

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Low cost compact diffusers are needed for small gas turbine compressor stages to economically minimize centrifugal compressor overall diameter yet permit high efficiency and wide operating range. The proposer has performed over 130 different detailed tests (on more than 40 different stage configurations) with various conventional and novel diffusers (vaneless, low solidity airfoil, channel, tande ...

  2. Reactor for Control of Fugitive Emissions of Toxic Gases

    SBC: Coyote Aerospace/high Mesa            Topic: N/A

    A need to control the fugitive emissions of hazardous vapors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) has been identified in operations at Army plants and depots. The High Mesa Technologies (HMT)/Coyote Aerospace team proposes to meet this need using proven silent discharge plasma (SDP) techniques, developed by the Electric Power Research Institute and Los Alamos Nat ...

  3. High-power Electronic Tuning

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: N/A

    Tunable HF/VHF filters capable of operating at high power levels are needed for preventing a jammer from interfering with nearby friendly communications, high-speed antenna tuners, and output filters for high-efficiency power amplifiers (PAS). Filter systems presently employ either relays or pin-diode switches to select one filter from a bank of filters that spans the operating frequency range. ...

  4. Advanced Armor Vehicle Design

    SBC: Physics Mathematics &            Topic: N/A

    This project applies a combination of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and CAD software to the problem of optimum armor design. Previous work for TACOM has established the efficacy of ANN/GA as applied to the problem of 1-D armor design. This new work will extend the concept to full 3-D vehicle geometries (CAD models). The CAD part of the code will handle the 3D data d ...

  5. Development and Validation of an Exogenous Metabolic Activation System for FETAX

    SBC: STOVER & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay: Xenopus (FETAX) is a 96-h, whole-embryo bioassay designed to detect potential developmental toxicants. The primary goal of this research is to improve the predictability and increase the overall utility of FETAX as a screen for developmental toxicants that pose a hazard to human health. Since Xenopus laevis embryos lack mixed-fliriction oxidase metabolism (cytoch ...

  6. Low Temperature Processing of Boron Carbide Cement Composite for Tough, Wear Resistant Structures

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    Natural materials such as tooth, bone or shell consist of a high volume fraction of ceramic grains coated by thin layers of proteinaceous film. The ceramic grains are grown in situ in a pre-formed organic polymer matrix. The organic portion provides high toughness, while the ceramic component provides stiffness. This unique microstructure allows for mechanical properties superior to man-made ce ...

  7. Non-Eroding Fin Materials

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will analyze and select promising materials and designs to be used in the plumes of tactical solid rocket motors for missile steering and control. The emphasis is on high-performance refractory materials and compatibility of material systems. The control fins experience severe thermal and severe particulate erosion environments. Missile controllability requires fins with minimal er ...

  8. Surge Margin Enhancement for a Centrifugal Compressor

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Turboshaft engines are subject to various transient modes, necessitating a compressor with very high surge margin. Therefore, many devices were proposed in the past, and some of them including a recent one with a vaneless cavity by Allied Signal Engines, demonstrated impressive surge margin enhancement. However, there ahs been no detailed investigations on understanding the flow mechanism leading ...

  9. Numerical Simulation of Dynamic Stall

    SBC: Ecodynamics Research Associate            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to develop, demonstrate and validate a three-dimensional, time-dependent, compressible Navier-Stokes program for predicting dynamic stall. The foundation of the program is an existing 3-D program that has been developed under prior SBIR funding for retreating-blade dynamic stall on modern high-performance helicopter rotors. The program will be improved in ...
