Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-120
Budget: 09/22/09 - 03/22/10

The goal of this SBIR project is to develop an innovative surface treatment technique that fulfills the critical needs of enhancing fatigue resistance in hydraulic tubing by generating deep and stable compressive residual stresses at low cost. The proposed technique harnesses the basic phenomena of bubbles cavitation and collapse while avoids th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-131
Budget: 07/16/08 - 12/30/09

Fatigue life of airframe components is greatly influenced by many intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The nature of wide scattering in fatigue life makes it very difficult to design a component against fatigue failure. The huge consequences of life and property loss associated with premature fatigue failure therefore push airframe design toward ove...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-125
Budget: 05/02/07 - 05/02/08

Fatigue life of aerospace components is greatly enhanced by planting compressive residual stresses or favorable microstructure in the shallow surface by various processing techniques, including laser shock peening (LSP). In some situations, there are shock-induced defects in the subsurface and other area in the component; spallation can occur in...
