Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.01
Budget: 09/26/16 - 09/25/18

We propose the development of a novel aerodynamic modeling approach making use of fully unstructured grids for unsteady panel aerodynamic models for aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis. The unsteady aerodynamic code will be integrated with an existing suite of aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis tools making it possible to perform a...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Sandia National Laboratories

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T004
Budget: 07/20/16 - 10/26/17

During Phase I and Phase II, M4 Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories have created a unique bonded joint analysis methodology and associated software. During Phase II.5, the developed techniques will be further enhanced and a fully functional commercial analysis code (SIMULIA/Abaqus) plug-in will be created. The software plug-in wil...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

M4 Engineering proposes to develop methods and software to generate reduced order nonlinear models of dynamic aeroserovelastic systems. The reduced order models will be based on a hybrid NARMAX-Wavelet model, in which the basic linear behavior and gentle nonlinearities in the dynamics are captured by a Nonlinear AutoRegressive, Moving Average w...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

We propose the development of a modern panel code for calculation of steady and unsteady aerodynamic loads needed for dynamic servoelastic (DSE) analysis of flight vehicles. The code will be especially tailored to be robust, reliable, and integrated with the NASA Object Oriented Optimization (O3) system through selection of analysis methods, fi...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Missouri University of Science & Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T11.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

M4 Engineering and Missouri S&T propose to investigate the viability of creating a multidisciplinary analysis and optimization architecture for analyzing spacecraft system models. The current approach will utilize commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software to alleviate acquisition hurdles for NASA (and public) technical monitors/reviewers. Next,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-126
Budget: 06/04/15 - 06/04/16

ABSTRACT:This proposal effort seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a methodology for propagating measurement errors through common modal parameter estimation algorithms and assurance criterion. This effort will leverage existing uncertainty quantification and modal parameter estimation software. Two modal parameter estimation alg...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.01
Budget: 05/27/15 - 05/26/17

In aircraft design, reducing structural weight is often a prime objective, while various constraints in multiple disciplines, such as structure, aerodynamics and aeroelasticity should be imposed on the aircraft. Therefore, engineers need optimization tools to incorporate the multidisciplinary constraints using appropriate fidelity during the ea...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.05
Budget: 05/15/15 - 05/14/17

Approaches for weight prediction, in the conceptual design phase, typically consist of parametric relations or empirical databases. Historical databases work reasonably well when applied to existing or conventional designs, however, they fail to predict accurately the weights and loads associated with unconventional designs (like the Low Boom F...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Sandia National Laboratories

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T004
Budget: 03/10/14 - 09/10/15

Using its Phase I program results, M4 Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories will continue to create a unique bonded joint analysis methodology and associated software. Surrogate traction-separation models will be created that efficiently capture the behavior that occurs for real bonded joints. Mixed mode loading, including compressi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-003
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: M4 Engineering and Florida State University propose to develop methods for rapidly identifying store/aircraft configurations at elevated risk for adverse separation events. The methods developed will require from the user only data that is typically available prior to detailed influence load collection. One of the approaches will dir...
