  1. Practical CFD Models for Predicting Lean Blowout and Ignition in Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Current steady-state CFD combustion codes cannot predict transient combustion phenomena such as lean blowout (LBO) and ignition in gas turbine combustors. In this SBIR, we propose to develop an innovative analytical capability so that the combustordesigner can address operability issues. The key to predicting LBO/ignition is the use of time-accurate Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (URAN ...

  2. Fluidic System Optimization For Active Core Exhaust Control in High Bypass Ratio Turbofan Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Elimination of diverter valve sensitivity to core exhaust backpressure fluctuations will be critical to the success of future fluidic exhaust nozzle control technology enhancement programs. During Phase I extensive analysis of the pilot valve size,injection configuration and feed losses, as well as pulse format (frequency, pulse width, etc.) influences on main diverter valve operation, will be co ...

  3. Axial Pintle Controlled Constant Volume Combustion Bipropellant Pulsed Rocket Motor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Idealized analysis has shown that, for the same propellant supply pressure, higher performance can be obtained in a constant-volume combustion device than the traditional constant pressure rocket. CFDRC proposes an effort consisting of multiple levels ofanalysis, followed by design and testing of a rocket engine prototype that will substantiate this claim. Recent relevant experience in advanced ...

  5. High Quality E-beam Generation by Advanced Multipurpose Pseudospark Switch

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CFD Research Corp. proposes the development of an Advanced Multipurpose Pseudospark Switch (AMPS) e-beam source capable of efficiently generating high average/peak current, bright electron beams. The improvement in e-beam quality (over a classicalpseudospark) stems from the inductive preionization of the hollow cathode chamber, prior to main gap breakdown. The proposed device features similaritie ...

  9. Innovative Applications of Plasma Discharge for Power and Propulsion Technology

    SBC: MEMS OPTICAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Traditional stationkeeping thrusters for satellites are low-efficient, complex, monopropellant or bipropellant chemical thrusters. The complexity and stored propellant of the thrusters result in satellites with higher dry weights, decreased payloadcapabilities, and thus higher incurred costs.A significant opportunity exists in the area of satellite stationkeeping for innovative propulsion systems ...
