Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A1.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

The goal of this project is to produce a revolutionary computational methodology that is fast, reliable and accurate for predicting complex high Reynolds number, turbulent flows associated with efficient aerodynamic designs. The proposed work will focus on low-speed canonical flows that introduce challenging physics, e.g., separation, transition...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will offer breakthrough Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology in a high-performance computing cloud environment. Looking towards eliminating the need for physical testing, it is now common practice in the energy, automotive, aerospace, chemical process industries, among many ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-092
Budget: 10/16/13 - 04/28/14

This SBIR Phase I proposal will examine the feasibility of using the VorCat implementation of the gridfree vortex method to provide accurate, real time simulations of rotor wake, specifically the tip vortex structure, in various flight scenarios. Rotor wake flow is complex and poorly served by traditional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) metho...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02 D-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This project addresses the need for reliable and efficient strategies for simulating the complex turbulent flows produced by moving boundaries associated with a wide range of next generation energy-related technologies such as wind turbines, ground vehicles, and wave and ocean current power generators. Understanding and accurately predicting su...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-195
Budget: 11/19/10 - 05/19/11

This SBIR Phase I project addresses the problem of accurately predicting interactions between helicopter rotor downwash and environmental turbulence encountered during shipboard landing and/or hovering in confined spaces. Anticipating the effect of ship wake on rotor aerodynamics is critical for accurate real time dynamic simulation of helicopte...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-007
Budget: 06/23/09 - 02/26/10

There is growing interest in using unmanned air vehicles (UAV's) instrumented with particle sensors to detect the presence of hazardous airborne chemical/biological (CB) agents. The effectiveness of this point source approach depends on providing the airborne sensors with the largest possible and most varied volume of the atmosphere. We seek to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Turbulent flows associated with advanced aerodynamic designs represent a considerable challenge for accurate prediction. For example, the flow past low-speed wings requires the representation of complex physics involving separation onset/progression (both leading-and trailing-edge), vortex/viscous interactions, merging shear layers with strong c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop innovative, grid-free, numerical models of two-phase, particulate, incompressible turbulent flows. The intent is to provide a high fidelity model for the simulation and analysis of numerous environmental and industrial flow applications wherein particulate motion is a critical ...
