  1. ENCAPT Passive Fire Protection System for Composite Structures

    SBC: SOFTRONICS, LTD.            Topic: N04085

    New ship construction will rely more heavily on composite structures, which provide structural strength with light weight, but with increased vulnerability to fire damage. To prevent catastrophic fire damage, Softronics is offering ENCAPT as a lining material for the composite structures to passively protect it from fire damage. ENCAPT was developed and patented by Dr. Benjamin Mosier, Institute ...

  2. Investigation of Combustion Instability in Augmentors Using High-Speed PIV and PLIF

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071173

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to assess the feasibility of performing high-speed (1-5 kHz) particle-image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) for understanding combustion stability and related phenomena in gas-turbine augmentors. Initial demonstration measurements will be performed in cold and heated air flows using PIV and acetone/biacetyl PL ...

  3. Exhaust Jet Noise Reduction for Tactical Aircraft

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N07173

    A class of high amplitude and high bandwidth actuators called localized arc filament plasma actuators (LAFPAs) have recently been developed at OSU and used for control of high-speed and high Reynolds number jets. The control included successful noise mitigation in a Mach 0.9 jet and mixing enhancement (and very preliminary results for noise mitigation) in a Mach 1.3 ideally expanded jet. The contr ...

  4. Schlieren Based Seedless PIV for High Frequency Cavity Flow Control Applications in Large Scale Wind Tunnel Facilities

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071264

    Flow control using high-frequency actuation to reduce acoustic and vibrational loading from weapons bays and sensor apertures requires a diagnostic approach that can capture instantaneous flowfield data at rates of several kHz. Moreover, large wind tunnel facilities suffer the difficulty that particle seeding is problematic for techniques such as Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV). The opportuni ...

  5. Spatially and Temporally Resolved Temperature and Species Concentration Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors using fs-CARS

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF073059

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to develop femtosecond (fs) laser-based coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy for providing quantitative high-speed (1-10 kHz) temperature and species concentration measurements in unsteady reacting flows. The initial frequency-spread dephasing rate of the Raman coherence induced by the ultrafast (~85 fs) Stokes and pump ...

  6. Picosecond-Laser-Based Fiber-Coupled Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) Spectroscopy System

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF073134

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I research effort is to perform temperature and species measurements in both H2-air and C2H4-air flames using a fiber-coupled picosecond CARS system. Single-mode and step-index multi-mode fibers will be investigated for the delivery of the picosecond lasers to pump the target species and also to collect the generated CARS signal. The key element of our propose ...

  7. Development of a Piezoelectric Active Acoustic Liner for Jet Engine Noise Reduction

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N08142

    Acoustic liners are presently used for attenuating combustion and turbine noise radiated from jet engines. Current acoustic liners are passive by nature. This is a drawback because they are only able to absorb acoustic energy over a limited bandwidth. A possible solution to this drawback is the development of an active acoustic liner. The main advantage of this concept is the ability to tune the ...

  9. Investigation of Combustion Instability in Augmentors Using High-Speed PIV and PLIF

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF071173

    The objective of this Phase-II effort is to build and deliver a high-speed laser system for performing particle-image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) of OH at rates of 5 to 10 kHz in augmentor test facilities. This state-of-the-art laser system will allow velocity and 2-D flame radical measurements for understanding the complex spatio-temporal development of instab ...

  10. Automated Generation of Viscous CFD Grids for Increased Productivity of High Fidelity Aerodynamic Analysis

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A02159

    Viscous analysis is vital for a complete understanding of missile and UAV aerodynamic properties. A high fidelity aerodynamic analysis tool capable of predicting a flow field can significantly reduce design time and cost. The success of a CFD analysis is dependent on the quality of the grid. This proposal offers a technique for automatically generating grids suitable for viscous analysis on comple ...
