Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 94-1
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

A new software tool is proposed for the optimal design of materials processing equipment. The objective of the project is to combine fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transfer simulation capabilities with advanced numerical optimization techniques to automate the design of microgravity experiments. The resulting software will determine the val...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 90-2
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

A COMPUTER SOFTWARE PROGRAM WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL ENABLE THE NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF CRYSTAL GROWTH FROM A MELT, INCLUDING HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER, TRANSPORT OF SOLUTE,TRACKING OF THE SOLIDIFICATION FRONT, AND MENISCUS EFFECTS. THE PROGRAM WILL BE BASED ON THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD, AND WILL ALLOW BOTH STEADY-STATE AND TRANSIENT SIMULATIONS...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 89-1
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1988
Budget: 01/01/88 - 12/31/88

FINITE ELEMENT METHODS (FEM) APPLIED TO COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS OPEN UP THE POSSIBILITY OF NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF HIGHLY COMPLEX FLUID FLOWS OCCURRING IN INDUSTRIAL SITUATIONS. THE STATE-OF-THE-ART LIMITATION ON THE USE OF FEM IS COMPUTER RESOURCES: THE METHOD REQUIRES THE SOLUTION OF A VERY LARGE SYSTEM OF ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS, CURRENTLY E...
