  1. High Reliability Cryogenic Piezoelectric Valve Actuator

    SBC: Dynamic Structures And Materials, LLC            Topic: X801

    Cryogenic fluid valves are subject to harsh exposure and actuators to drive these valves require robust performance and high reliability. DSM's piezoelectric actuators offer advantages over traditional alternative actuator technology. However, in order to use piezoceramic actuators in cryogenic fluid handling applications, proof of operational reliability and improvements in thermal neutral ...

  2. UCDS Based Stable Injector Design

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: X1001

    The Universal Combustion Device Stability (UCDS) Process is the culmination of more than 40 years of research and provides the means to understand the complex dynamics and processes inside any chemical propulsion system, including liquid rockets, solid rockets, hybrid rockets, turbojet combustors and augmentors, and even scramjets. In addition to predicting whether a combustion chamber will oscil ...

  3. Scramjet Combustion Stability Behavior Modeling

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: A202

    A recent breakthrough in combustion stability analysis (UCDS) offers the potential to predict the combustion stability of a scramjet. This capability is very important due to the extreme scramjet operational environment, which makes cut-and-try development approaches impractical. With UCDS, it will be possible to accurately predict the scramjet pressure oscillation amplitudes, along with critical ...

  4. Uncertainty Quantification in Aerodynamics Simulations

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A205

    The objective of the proposed work (Phases I and II) is to develop uncertainty quantification methodologies and software suitable for use in CFD simulations of aerodynamic flows, ranging from sub-sonic to hypersonic. We will address both pressure and density-based methods, as well as the class of algorithms addressing all-Mach number flows. The software developed here will be based on an existing ...

  5. Analysis and Design Tools for Fluid-Structure Interaction with Multi-Body Flexible Structures

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A205

    The overall objective of this proposal (Phases I and II) is to develop a robust and accurate solver for fluid-structure interaction computations capable of addressing multi-body flexible structures as well as rigid body motion. The fluid flow solution will be performed using our unstructured solution-adaptive flow solver TETHYS. We propose to develop a structural solver based on the Galerkin finit ...

  7. Observation Platform for Dynamic Biomedical and Biotechnology Experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O303

    The proposed "Observation platform for dynamic biomedical and biotechnology experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module" consists of a platen sized to fit the stage of NASA's Light Microscopy Module (LMM) on the International Space Station (ISS). At the heart of the innovation is a small hollow microscope slide into which specimens and reagent solutions can be injected by a combination of s ...

  8. Hybrid High-Temperature Superconductor Current Leads for Space Applications

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: S107

    The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) proposes to address the need for high temperature superconducting (HTS) current leads used in an adiabatic demagnetization refrigerator (ADR) for space applications, presently being developed at the NASA / Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). The innovation is to use a hybrid of two different HTS conductors bonded together at a thermally and electrically determi ...

  9. In Situ Metrology for the Corrective Polishing of Replicating Mandrels

    SBC: Zeeko Technologies, LLC            Topic: S205

    The International X-Ray observatory (IXO) is due to be launched in 2021. The core of the instrument is a very large (3.2 meter diameter) Wolter I optic, to be assembled from approximately 13,000 individual elements. Each element will, in turn, be created by 'slumping' glass over a precision mandrel, of which there must be in excess of 700. In addition to the very large size of the mandrels (up t ...

  10. Autonomus I&C Maintenance and Health Monitoring System for Fission Surface Power

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: X702

    There currently exists no end-to-end reactor/power conversion monitoring system that can provide both autonomous health monitoring, but also in-situ sensor calibration and response time testing without human interface. One of the key challenges facing space nuclear power systems is their extremely remote location and requirement for multi-year missions. The current benchmark system has a mission ...
