  1. A Novel, Microfabricated, Electro-Immuno, Integrated Sensor-Sampler for Bioagent Collection and Detection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Current technologies for biodetection employ typically large, cumbersome, power-guzzling and expensive devices. Integration of separate sampler and detection units often poses problems. They are not flexible enough for adapting to different threatscenarios, and are not capable of monitoring for a variety of possible agents. CFDRC proposes to develop and demonstrate a Microfabricated, Electro-immun ...

  2. Rapidly Throttleable Oxygen Generation Using Microwave Plasma Decomposition of Rod Fed Perchlorates

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Elimination of high pressure and cryogenic propellant storage and feed systems for undersea vehicle fuel cells is of interest to the Navy. CFDRC proposes the development of a rechargeable oxygen generator based on microwave plasma decomposition ofsolid-state lithium perchlorate. The generator will employ the atmospheric microwave plasma torch technology recently demonstrated by the Plasma Science ...

  3. Advanced CFD Software for Improving Durability of Turbine Inlet Guide Vanes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In high F/A military gas turbine combustors such as JSF, localized pockets of carbon monoxide (and perhaps hydrogen) can exit the combustor, causing severe cooling challenges for designers of turbine inlet guide vanes. Instead of cooling the vane, coolingair can actually interact with the hotpath flow to release heat near the vane surface, resulting in catastrophic damage. In this SBIR, we propose ...

  4. Accelerated Monte Carlo Methods for Rarefied Gas Dynamics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Monte Carlo simulations of rarefied gas dynamics are important for many applications. This project aims to substantially accelerate Monte Carlo (MC) algorithms and develop a rigorous and efficient computer code applicable for a wide range of Knudsen numberfrom rarefied to continuum flow regimes. This will be achieved by using implicit treatment of the collision processes, majorant frequency scheme ...

  6. Design of a Rheometer for Time-Dependent Gel Rheology

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Simulation of time-dependent rheological behavior in an advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) environment revealed that inclusion of a structural parameter within a modified empirical power law expression is capable of predicting the flowcharacteristics of thixotropic gels. Validation of the CFD based predictions was completed using a combination of published AMCOM test data and thixotropic ...

  7. Computationally Assisted Electronic Hardening

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Reliable and sensitive aerial defense applications (missile seekers, avionics, remote sensing) demand that electronic components be resistant to ionizing radiation from nuclear weapons and upper atmosphere/terrestrial sources. CFDRC, in collaboration withHoneywell and Vanderbilt University, is proposing to develop electronic-hardening concepts at the process, device and primitive cell level to ach ...

  9. 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 ...
