Abstract
Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will develop a Fast Response Fabric Test Setup using hot gas impingement conditions by the jet engine exhaust from the Short Take Off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) aircrafts during the Phase I of the proposed SBIR programs. The fabric testing will measure the thermal response and properties of various clothing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) fabrics. ACT will also develop a Dynamic Fabric Model for transient heat transfer analysis of the fabrics under the jet impingement conditions and validate the model using the fabric thermal test results. During the follow-on Phase II program, ACT will upgrade the fabric test setup of the Phase I to handle the various heating modes of conduction, convection (for permeable or impermeable surface) and radiation and to provide the appropriate factors for designing various components of the aircraft maintainer ensemble. Comprehensive testing will be conducted to build a model library of the thermal properties of various clothing and PPE items that can be used with the BURN SIMulation (BURNSIM) model to evaluate and design protection alternatives. ACT will also develop a fully-validated dynamic fabric submodel to provide the transient heat flux inputs to the BURNSIM model for burn hazard assessment.
