Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-019
Budget: 12/07/11 - 12/07/13

The use of monolithic airfoil structures in static and rotating components such as one-piece integrally bladed rotors (IBR''s) in military turbine engines has created an increased risk of high cycle fatigue(HCF). The Phase I and Phase II SBIR efforts demonstrated that plasma sprayed ceramic coatings infiltrated with viscoelastic (VEM) polymers e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-171
Budget: 03/17/10 - 12/24/10

This SBIR Phase I program will bring together both thermal spray and PVD coating technologies to create a multilayer damping coating system capable of enhancing the reliability of components in the harsh environment of advanced turbine engines. The proposed research effort will utilize a novel thermal spray coating method for producing high damp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-059
Budget: 10/26/07 - 10/25/09

The Army s new turbine engine airfoil designs have the potential of increased high cycle fatigue. The current Phase I SBIR program demonstrated the usefulness of plasma sprayed damping coatings to produce significant damping on Hastelloy X at temperatures between 1000 and 1500 °F. Concentrations of as little as 1% high temperature viscoelastic ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-059
Budget: 11/08/05 - 10/25/07

Innovative damping methods for small turbine engines are needed by the Army and other military and commercial interests. The plasma sprayed coating process provides a method for successfully achieving the required damping for the newer high efficiency turbine engines that experience high "g " loads between 800 °F and 2000 °F. Plasma sprayed cera...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-019
Budget: 11/03/05 - 10/05/07

The use of monolithic airfoil structures in static and rotating components such as one-piece integrally bladed rotors (IBR's) in military turbine engines has created an increased risk of high cycle fatigue (HCF). The Phase I SBIR studies recently demonstrated plasma sprayed hard coating concepts that show significantly greater damping than has b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-019
Budget: 03/10/04 - 09/10/05

New concepts and processing methods are needed to minimize high cycle fatigue and improve the damping behavior of monolithic titanium blades, vanes, and stators in high performance aircraft engines. Ceramic coatings applied by the plasma spray process have the potential to achieve the required damping characteristics. The proposed Phase I projec...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Dayton

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

65777 The poor fracture toughness of sintered Nd-Fe-B magnets makes it very difficult to produce magnetic parts with complicated shapes, tiny thicknesses, and small dimensions. Chipping, cracking, and fracture often happen during grinding, assembly, and operation of the Nd-Fe-B magnetic parts. Bonded Nd-Fe-B magnets could overcome these p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-054
Budget: 03/22/01 - 09/22/01

There is a need for research and development of new and cost effective anode materials and processes to facilitate the already successful Electro-Osmotic-Pulse (EOP) Technology for controlling moisture in existing concrete structures. The new anode technology will extend use of EOP to a broader range of construction materials to include masonry ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Dayton

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01
PI: Unavailable

A major problem that exists with Nd2Fe14B permanent magnets is the high cost of fabricating complex shaped isotropic magnets. The fabrication of conventional high performance Nd2Fe14B magnetic materials involves complicated multi-step processes, such as melting, casting, homogenization, crushing, milling, magnetic alignment, pressing, sintering,...
