  1. Next Generation Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Codes

    SBC: APPLIED SIMULATIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA092015

    Accurate blast simulations based on first-principles, 3-D hydro-codes require hours on notebook PCs. Graphical processing units (GPUs) offer the potential of drastic reductions in run-times. Typical computational fluid dynamics codes perform of the order of 10-100 operations per memory fetch and store. In order to harness the potential of graphical processing units (GPUs), near-perfect streaming ( ...

  3. Heterdyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large X-ray generators using gas fill loads are a key element in the DTRA simulator program. Consistent relative timing between the injection of the gas shell and the generator current pulse is crucial to producing consistent, high-yield x-ray pulses.To that end HY-Tech proposes replacing existing high voltage trigger pin technology, with a sensitive, all fiber-optic heterodyne interferometer ba ...

  4. Development of a spectroscopic technique to measure electric fields in plasma radiation sources

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: DTRA04010

    The intensity ratio of forbidden-to-allowed transitions in Li and He have been used to determine both turbulent electric fields due to plasma instabilities and quasi-static applied electric fields in low density and temperature plasmas. HY-Tech proposes to extend this technique to the plasma temperatures and densities encountered in plasma radiation sources. In this case uv spectra of Li-like and ...

  6. VULNERABILITY TO AIRBLAST-INDUCED SHOCK

    SBC: Los Alamos Technical Assocs In            Topic: N/A

    THE DAMAGING EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR AIRBLAST, THERMAL AND PROMPT RADITION, AND EMP ON EXPOSED EQUIPMENT AND STRUCTURES ARE WELL KNOWN. AN ADDITIONAL, LESS WIDELY RECOGNIZED BUT POTENTIALLY SERIOUS NUCLEAR EFFECT IS THAT OF AIRBLAST-INDUCED SHOCK (ABIS). EQUIPMENT MOUNTED INSIDE AN ENCLOSED SPACE CAN BE EXPOSED TO LARGE INDUCED VELOCITIES AND ACCELERATIONS, PRIMARLY IN THE HORIZONTAL DIRECTION. THE INT ...

  7. Novel Reactive Structural Materials

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA05002

    Materials and Manufacturing Systems, Inc. (MATSYS) proposes to develop novel reactive structural materials for the enhancement of munitions lethality. This effort will combine our unique expertise in instrumented-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) with new approaches in intermetallic design to develop a new generation of cost-efficient, high strength and reactive composites. The proposed material syst ...

  8. 3-Dimensional Hazard and Consequence Assessment Visualization

    SBC: NOESIS, INC.            Topic: DTRA04006

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing a three-dimensional spatial display to visualize information from a time-varying hazard prediction model. A spatial 3D display offers true volumetric projections of data and allows observers to gain insight of hazard information that is not possible with conventional 3D graphical scenes on a 2D surface or with presented ...

  9. SNAPSHOT: A System for Predicting Human Physical Traits from Sample DNA

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    OBJECTIVE: Develop a Forensic DNA Analysis Kit for Genetic Intelligence that can be used on unknown human DNA samples collected from the battlefield to provide information about the individual who deposited the sample, such as potential ethnicity, height, eye color, hair color, age, sex, and/or facial features. The kit should leverage Short Tandem Repeats (STR), Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (S ...

  10. Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: DTRA111002

    Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface transport of the noble gases of interest. Our proposed research will identify and quantify the physi ...
