Phase 1 SBIR

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

The overall technical objective of the Phase I effort is to develop a nonlinear aeroelastic solver utilizing the FUN3D generated nonlinear aerodynamic Reduced Order Model (ROM). Two types of aerodynamic reduced order models will be developed; the first is the Neural Network nonlinear ROM that can provide the aerodynamic feedback forces due to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-066
Budget: 07/20/15 - 10/20/17

ABSTRACT:Both commercial and military aircraft are being flown/utilized for extended operational time; a more accurate prediction of residual life and the inspection interval for an individual aircraft is required, as these aging aircraft are kept in operational status. A technique for converting actual aircraft measured flight usage data into a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.01
Budget: 04/30/15 - 04/29/17

In Phase I, a prototypical FUN3D-based ZONA Euler Unsteady Solver (FunZEUS) was developed to generate the Generalized Aerodynamic Forces (GAFs) due to structural modes, control surface kinematic modes, and gust excitation using a frequency-domain linearized unstructured Euler solver based on the Navier-Stokes solution of FUN3D as the steady back...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Arizona State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF14-AT04
Budget: 10/31/14 - 07/31/15

ABSTRACT: Several current fighter aircraft with external store configurations persistently encounter Limit Cycle Oscillation (LCO) problems. A fast and accurate aeroelastic prediction is required to identify the critical LCO configurations given the massive number of aircraft with store combinations short-time frame demanded by rapid military r...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-208
Budget: 09/22/14 - 12/19/16

ABSTRACT: The ability to extract structure mode shapes, accurate system frequency/damping and to predict the onset of flutter/LCO in a real-time capacity from flight/wind tunnel test data are some of the toughest challenges facing control room engineers today. In Phase I, ZONA Technology successfully developed prototype IADS ActiveX controls (i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-066
Budget: 05/30/14 - 03/02/15

ABSTRACT: Both commercial and military aircraft are being flown/utilized for extended operational time. The aircraft cumulative flight hours often times extends the original design limits. Each different aircraft manufacturer calculates aircraft fatigue and damage using different techniques. A more accurate prediction of remaining life and inspe...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT06
Budget: 03/15/14 - 03/14/16

ABSTRACT: The overall technical objective of this Phase II effort is to develop computational tools for computing response sensitivities of parametric multi-disciplinary air vehicle systems that exhibit nonlinear dynamic behavior for use in gradient-based optimization, smart sampling, uncertainty quantification, and risk assessment. To this end,...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-A3.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The overall technical objective of this multi-phase project is to develop and validate a so-called 'AAW-Process' that consists of (i) the Active Aeroelastic Wing (AAW) technology of employing multiple control surfaces in tandem for achieving loads alleviation and drag minimization using the over-determined trim capability of ZONA Euler Unsteady ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-A3.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The overall objective of this Phase I project is to develop a hybrid approach in FUN3D, referred herein to as the Linearized FUN3D, for rapid aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic (ASE) design and analysis. The Linearized FUN3D solves a linearized Euler equation with a transpiration boundary condition using the FUN3D steady N-S solution as the stead...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-A3.04
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The overall objective of this Phase I project is to develop a nonlinear trim module in FUN3D for enabling the determined and over-determined trim analyses to be performed by FUN3D with static aeroelastic effects. Based on an optimization formulation, the over-determined trim analysis can determine the optimum control surface scheduling of multip...
