Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-2
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The research proposed targets airframe noise (AFN) prediction and reduction. AFN originates from complex interactions of turbulent flow with airframe components that are extremely difficult to compute efficiently and accurately. In Phase I the feasibility of an innovative generalized lattice Boltzmann equation (GLBE) approach as a computational ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a generalized lattice Boltzmann (GLB) approach as a potential computational aeroacoustics (CAA) tool for noise prediction thus contributing to NASA's goal of reducing noise levels of subsonic aircraft. Lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE) based simulations are attractive for CAA as they can...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is for development of lattice Boltzmann methods (LBM) for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) of multiphase and reaction. The proposed work will develop LBM for interface capturing based on phase-field models - an area at the cutting edge of current research. The LBM codes will be developed...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

73207-There is a need to predict the behavior of fluid systems in the extremely demanding conditions of very high heat and neutron fluxes, magnetohydrodynamic forces, and complex geometries found in fusion facilities. Reliable simulations of this nature would reduce development time and costs, and allow rapid, cost-effective assessment of desig...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

73207S03-I Improved simulations are needed to understand the fluid physics and chemistry of significant effects in liquid-wall fusion systems. These effects include, but are not limited to, corrosion effects, surface impurity/dopant segregation, sticking of energetic plasma particles, and effects on surface tension and electrical/thermal condu...
