  1. Nuclear Weapons Effects Phenomenology

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The nuclear weapons community has traditionally focused on the next generation or level of weapon capability complimented by gathering and analysis of actual test data. Now, with the cessation of actual weapons testing, there is an increased need to use the actual test data in modeling techniques to better understand the phenomenology and potential effects of nuclear weapons. The first phase of ...

  2. Laser Turbulence Measurements in the LB/TS

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

    Turbulence of gas flows by its very nature is one of the most difficult things to model and measure. We propose to develop a new way of measuring the turbulence and to compare these measurements to predictions using the k-epsilon model. Typical measurements, in the past, use smoke, Schlierin or shadow graph techniques to visually infer turbulence characteristics. These features are either motio ...

  3. Low Cost, Portable X-Ray Simulator Development

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    We propose, in Phase I and Phase II, to build an X-ray simulator capable of easy transportation between sites which can be built for a low cost (

  4. A FUEL/AIR DRIVE FLUX COMPRESSOR POWER UNIT FOR ELECTROTHERMAL GUNS

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Ktech Team proposes a feasibility study of a fuel/air driven flux compression power unit (FCPU) for electric guns. Through variations of inductance gradients and through changes in scale, the proposed technology will be applicable to both electrothermal/chemical and electromagnetic guns. In the Phase 1 effort, we develop simulation models to predict the performance of the flux compression po ...

  5. Response of Dry Spore Biological Agets and Surrogates to Weapons Environment

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Nuclear Agency hase undertaken several related programs to develop new technologies for countering the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, including weapons which disperse dry spore biological agents. These initiatives require an increased understanding of the response o fthese agents and their surrogates to the environments generated by various weapons, including penetratin ...

  6. Microcomputer-Based Collateral-Effects Source Model for Hazardous Material Dispersal in Vent Plumes from Attacks on Hardened Structures

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS DEVELOPING THE OPERATIONAL MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENT MODEL WITH GRID ADAPTIVITY (OMEGA) TO PREDICT REAL-TIME DISPERSAL OF HAZARDOUS AEROSOLS. ONE REQUIREMENT FOR OMEGA OR ANY SIMILAR MODEL IS TO PREDICT COLLATERAL EFFECTS FROM STRIKES ON NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) FACILITIES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE ESSENTIAL FE ...

  7. SECOND GENERATION LABORATORY SIMULATOR FOR SINGLE EVENT EFFECTS TESTING OF MICROELECTRONICS

    SBC: Daniel H. Valles & Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO PROVE THE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY TO USE ELECTROSTATIC ACCELERATION TO BOOST THE ENERGY OF CF-252 FISSION FRAGMENTS AS A LABORATORY SIMULATION OF COSMIC RAY EFFECTS I MICROELECTRONICS. THE PROJECT OBJECTIVE IS TO BOOST THE ENERGY SUCH THAT A LARGE FRACTION OF THE ACCELERATED IONS HAVE A RANGE IN SILICON GRATER THAN 20 MICROMETERS. THIS SOLVES A NUMBER OF PROBLEMS ASSOCIA ...
