Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Old Dominion University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-T015
Budget: 08/01/06 - 05/31/07

A new approach is proposed for high fidelity analysis of aeroelastic characteristics of integrally bladed rotors. This new multiscale approach for nonequilibrium flow path analysis will yield high fidelity solutions including all turbulence scales at a fraction of the computational cost of RANS. Integration of this advanced capability within a...

The development of a new design methodology for foil bearings is proposed. This new approach will enable the rapid design of both journal and thrust bearings. Use of this new technology will yield large savings. Program development costs will be reduced by a factor of 6, and bearing costs will be reduced by a factor of 5 through the use of pr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N00-005
Budget: 03/13/00 - 09/13/00

A new seal design is proposed that promises to eliminate the problems associated with reverse rotation in the T406 engine. In addition, the new design will meet the current design requirements for aerodynamic performance and assembly tolerances. In Phase I, candidate seal designs will be produced and evaluated through analysis and testing. Th...
