Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H10.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Rigorous ground testing mitigates space propulsion system risk by enabling advanced component and system level rocket propulsion development and by demonstrating that designs reliably meet the specified requirements over the operational envelope before the first flight. The development of advanced ground test technology components and systems th...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Mississippi State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T1.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/10/17

It is widely recognized that detailed simulation of large combustors to assess combustion instability and water spray systems to suppress rocket launch and test stand acoustic energy require advances in two phase flow, combustion, unsteady flow and acoustics modeling efficiency and fidelity. With recent advances in computer science technology, t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-084
Budget: 05/07/14 - 02/10/15

Evolving demand for robust and accurate multi-physics modeling tools for high performance combustion devices is being driven by increasingly complex design, analysis, and simulation requirements, but existing models and their underlying assumptions need to be rigorously examined in light of their intended Air Force propulsion system applications...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Mississippi State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-T9.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The goals of reducing total cost and increasing reliability and safety of access to space continue to be top priorities for NASA. The most immediate propulsion launch challenge involves increasing lift weight from 70 to 130 metric tons by developing the heavy lift Space Launch System (SLS). Solid rocket motor analysis tools are needed to simul...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Mississippi State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T9.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The challenges of designing, developing, and fielding man-rated propulsion systems continue to increase as NASA's mission moves forward with evolving solid propulsion requirements. Recent developments in simulating solid rocket motor environments include Lagrangian particle tracking, particle combustion models, dynamic particle drag and breakup...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Mississippi State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The challenges of designing, developing, and fielding man-rated propulsion systems continue to increase as NASA's Vision for Space Exploration Program moves beyond the Space Shuttle and RSRM. The number and type of different propulsion elements required are significant, and predicting internal solid motor behavior and characteristics and assess...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Mississippi State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-1
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The use of multidisciplinary analysis (MDA) techniques for complex fluid/structure interaction phenomena is increasing as proven numerical and visualization algorithms and high performance computing (HPC) platforms become more prevalent. Parallel solution methodologies and networked computing clusters are readily available, yet the challenge of...
