  1. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT004

    A combined discrete cohesive interface fracture and continuum damage mechanics initiation and propagation toolkit for Abaqus will be developed for the residual strength prediction of adhesively bonded composite structures subjected to multi-axial loading. This tool will allow us, for the first time, to be able to simulate concurrently both the continuum and discrete damage progression at the bonde ...

  2. Total Fatigue Life Assessment of Complicated Structures

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N12AT006

    Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) along with its team members Northwestern University, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing Company, propose to develop an automatic software tool for 2D/3D fatigue crack growth prognosis of complicated structures under multi-axial loading. The XFAT toolkit will be developed by integrating a unified crack initiation and propagation model with an enhanced mesh inde ...

  3. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: N12AT013

    We propose a self-organized chaotic attractor based CMOS/Memristor circuit framework called Self-Evolvable-Logic-Fabric (SELF) for autonomous motor control. We propose to demonstrate SELF's ability to spontaneously evolve algorithmic pathways to control a robotic arm to catch a ball utilizing visual and proprioceptive feedback while varying parameters that increase the complexity and difficul ...

  4. Advanced Bearing and Gear Steel Materials and Thermal Processing

    SBC: Abbott Ball Company            Topic: N112107

    The Abbott Ball Company has engineered a new, breakthrough material: Powder Metal Nitinol 60, which is an alloy of 60% Nickel and 40% Titanium. The material can be hardened to above Rockwell 60, has much better corrosion resistance than austenitic or martensitic stainless steels, weights 15% less than steel and can flex a full 5% without any permanent deformation. Originally discovered by Dr. Will ...

  5. Crystallization of Energetic Materials with Limited Solubility

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: N112129

    The energetic material community has a need to produce energetic materials in varying particle sizes and morphologies. Control of particle and morphology allows the formulator to investigate various aspects of processing and performance associated with the energetic material. Unfortunately, recrystallization of energetic materials to achieve the desired physical characteristics can prove to be a c ...

  6. Atmospheric Mitigation for Naval High Energy Laser Propagation

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N112140

    We propose a comprehensive numerical-simulation study of several techniques that promise to reduce the impact of thermal blooming on the energy deposition that is achievable with a high-energy laser in a near-sea-level maritime environment.

  7. Through-the-Sensor Sonar Performance Prediction and Optimization

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N112150

    Sonar performance predictions are often unreliable due to the lack of accurate information about the acoustic properties of the ocean around the globe. We propose to demonstrate an environmental estimation technique that uses reverberation from active sonar transmissions to infer environmental properties including the sound speed profile, the seafloor geoacoustic properties, and the geographically ...

  8. High-Power Microwave (HPM) Weapons"Effects and Failure Analysis Tool

    SBC: TECHFLOW SCIENTIFIC            Topic: N121008

    TechFlow Scientific, a division of TechFlow Inc., will leverage over a century of High Power Microwave (HPM) Effects Test and Modeling experience to develop an integrated toolkit that models the vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems and components to directed energy (DE) HPM weapons. The analysis toolkit developed will center on three essential modules, critical in a f ...

  9. Development of Advanced Stainless Steel for Aircraft Engine and Lift Fan Gearbox Bearings

    SBC: Abbott Ball Company            Topic: N121022

    Nitinol 60 powder metal is the only known engineering material which combines the attributes of machinibility, superior hardness and wear resistance, and immunity from corrosion from salt water and other commonly encountered corrosive substances. Testing has been done by NASA, Timken, Kamatics and others. Our preliminary results demonstrate the superior corrosion resistance, resistance to wear, an ...

  10. High-Fidelity Residual Strength and Life Prediction Tool for Adhesively Bonded Composite Structures

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N121042

    A hybrid damage initiation and propagation toolkit for Abaqus will be developed for residual strength and life prediction of adhesively bonded composite structures. This tool will for the first time be able to simulate concurrently both the continuum and discrete damage based progressive failure within the mesh independent computational framework for the solution domain away and near the bondline, ...
