  1. Residual Stress Determination for Cold Expanded Holes

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF141207

    ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively determine of the cold work process has been applied to a hole, and if the results are within process specif ...

  5. Enhanced Fuel Cells From Wastewater Treatment (Bacteria Generated System) as a Renewable Energy Source

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: AF141211

    ABSTRACT: Microbial fuel cells (MFC's) use metabolic reactions inside bacteria as a source of electrons. Wastewater treatment processes with MFC's employ bacteria to generate electrical power produced as they breakdown organic materials captured from wastewater. FTL Labs Corporation (FTL) proposes a powerful new enabling technology for wastewater power generation using high-capacity flo ...

  6. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: IMAGINESTICS, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced practitioners remain in short supply and will likely remain so until the next generation of technicians and en ...
