Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

MECHANICAL SYSTEM SIMULATION (MSS) IS THE TECHNOLOGY USED TO ANALYZE SYSTEMS UNDERGOING LARGE OVERALL MOTION, SUCH AS AN AUTOMOBILE GOING OVER A POTHOLE OR A SPACE SHUTTLE PERFORMING SATELLITE RETRIEVAL. MSS FORMULATIONS LEAD TO A COUPLED SET OF DIFFERENTIAL AND ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS CALLED INDEX-3 DAE. INDEX REDUCTION METHODS (IRM) ARE EMPLOYED...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1993
Budget: 01/01/93 - 12/31/93

MECHANICAL SYSTEMS SIMULATION (MSS) IS THE TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATED WITH THE ANALYSIS OF SYSTEMS UNDERGOING LARGE OVERALL MOTION. AN AUTOMOBILE PERFORMING A LANE CHANGE MANEUVER AT 55 MPH AND A SPACE SHUTTLE ORBITING THE EARTH WHILE PERFORMING SATELLITE RETRIEVAL, ARE TYPICAL EXAMPLES. THE STABILITY AND EFFICIENCY OF THE NUMERICAL SOLUTIONS FOR THE...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/89 - 05/31/91

Computer analysis is capable of solving an expanding range of biomedical problems including workplace ergonomics, vehicle occupant protection, and functional electrical stimulation of muscle for motility augmentation in paraplegics. However, the prodigious task of writing the equations of motion has necessitated problem specific simplifying ass...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/88 - 06/30/89

Computer analysis is capable of solving an expanding range of biomedical problems including workplace ergonomics, vehicle occupant protection, and functional electrical stimulation of muscle for motility augmentation in paraplegics. However, the prodigious task of writing the equations of motion has necessitated problem specific simplifying ass...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/86 - 09/30/86

Researchers are applying computer analysis to an expanding range of important biomechanical problems including occupational task evaluation, prosthesis design, occupant protection, and human coordination control theories. However, writing the equations of motion, constraint, and force for all but the simplest of hominoid dynamic simulations is ...
