  1. High Power Enzymatic Fuel Cell with Complete Oxidation of Fuel for Small Power System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD09EP3

    Our objective is to develop a high power enzymatic fuel cell (EFC) with complete oxidation of fuel, thereby delivering a state-of-the-art power supply for low power military systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Saint Louis University to provide a fully-integrate lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civili ...

  2. Development of Novel Polynitrogen-based High–performance Solid Propellants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T022

    In this STTR program, CFDRC, in collaboration with the University of Idaho, proposes to develop some novel high-performance polynitrogen energetic materials for propellant applications. The proposed materials contain amine substituted tetrazole-based heterocyclic cations. In order to enhance the energy content and stability further, they are combined with energetic anions. These anions will have ...

  3. A Multidisciplinary Analysis Tool for Multi Systems Deployment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF083266

    CFDRC proposes to develop, demonstrate and validate a multi-fidelity multi-disciplinary analysis tool for systems deployment and multi-body relative motion involving aerospace vehicles. A rigid body motion (6 DOF) model for systems deployment will be developed as a stand-alone module to be coupled with a general fluid solver. An advanced overset/Chimera methodology will be implemented to allow for ...

  4. Advanced data mining tool for feature detection in turbulent flow simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T017

    While DNS of complex flow phenomena is a routine practice nowadays, the analysis tools lack the sophistication to utilize the abundance of data generated, for they are devoid of physics-based data extraction and feature-detection protocols. The current effort proposes an automated and intelligent co-processing data-mining framework, in the form of an API, that detects and tracks flow features of s ...

  5. Tightly Coupled Aerothermoelastic Analysis Tool for Hypersonic Vehicle Structures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF083181

    A tightly coupled multi-physics framework is proposed for computational aerothermoelastic simulations of hypersonic aerospace vehicles. The multiphysics framework will be developed, validated and demonstrated by enabling variable degree of coupled interactions between non-linear flexible structures, aerodynamics, and heat transfer modules. The framework will be developed by leveraging CFDRC''''s C ...

  6. Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth Atmosphere

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T019

    The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Moreover, hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, excitation of vibrational level of molecules, nonequilibrium dissociation, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with proper domain decompositio ...

  7. Prediction of Ignition Delay of Hypergolic Energetic Ionic Liquid

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF083125

    In this program, CFDRC will develop a tool-kit for prediction of ignition delay of hypergolic energetic ionic liquids (EIL). Recently EILs have attracted considerable attention as next generation bipropellants to replace toxic monomethylhydrazine (MMH)  Due to their low vapor pressures, they are safer to handle and transport, and more environmentally friendly than MMH. Accurate prediction of the ...

  8. Enabling the Modeling and Destabilization of Terror Networks using a Novel Rule-Based Boolean Pseudo-Dynamic Approach

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF081021

    The overall objective of the Phase II effort is to design and implement the BANDIT software platform that utilizes structured and unstructured intelligence data for the creation, visualization, and quantitative analysis of terrorist networks. BANDIT will ultimately serve as an enabling technology for conducting offensive operations against terrorist networks by objectively identifying individuals ...

  9. Model-Free Control System for Scramjet Applications

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF083121

    Flow fluctuations in the flame-holder cavity affect its stable operation that can lead to degradation of its performance. Efficient cavity operations can be enhanced through active control of injection of air and fuel mixtures. We propose to design and validate a novel Model-Free Direct (feedback) Control system to ensure stable cavity operation in the subsonic regime with smooth transitions to su ...

  10. Accurate and Efficient Computation of Electromagnetic Fields and Waves over Unbounded Regions in 3D

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: AF081001

    ABSTRACT: The proposed project will remove the computational bottleneck in the currently adopted numerical treatment of exterior 3D magnetic fields around high-current pulsed power devices. Existing simulators introduce computationally expensive and nonphysical magnetic diffusion in the exterior region. In contrast, our approach is physically and mathematically rigorous and dramatically improves ...
