Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EA-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project involves the development of the Design environment for Aerospace Vehicles in Classroom Interaction (DAVinCI). DAVinCI is a collaborative, guided inquiry environment and game targeted for grades 9-12. This concept will integrate aerospace vehicle design and simulation tools with a des...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T003
Budget: 04/11/12 - 10/11/12

This STTR is aimed at developing methods and tools to characterize the impact of free-play on control surface flutter and overall stability and performance of the system. A successful completion of this two-phased STTR effort will lead to a modeling, analysis, design, and simulation tool that will provide a state-of-the-art capability for stabil...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Iowa State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T003
Budget: 07/30/10 - 07/13/11

The aerodynamic performance of aircraft is significantly impacted by the aero-elastic dynamics of its control surfaces. In particular, the dynamics of flutter - an unstable self-excitation of structure due to undesirable coupling of structural flexibility and aerodynamics - has critical impact on the stability and performance of aircraft. The co...
