5 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Virginia

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.02
Budget: 09/29/16 - 09/28/18

As the power density of advanced engines increases, the need for new materials that are capable of higher operating temperatures, such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), is critical for turbine hot-section static and rotating components. Such advanced materials have demonstrated the promise to significantly increase the engine temperature capa...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Villanova University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Woven TPS (WTPS) is an attractive option for thermal protection because it allows for a design to be tailored to a specific mission ? material composition can be adjusted by weaving different fiber types together and controlling their placement using computer-controlled, automated, 3D weaving technology. NASA?s HEEET program is responsible for t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H7.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Abstract

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-H7.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The design concepts being considered for Heatshield for Extreme Entry Environment Technology (HEEET) rely on the use of 3D woven carbon fiber preforms. Therefore, there is a need to be able to predict the properties and performance of a woven material. Validation of predictive modeling tools would allow for the use of these tools to design and...
