Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-131
Budget: 11/17/15 - 05/17/17

A computational framework designed to enable reliable prediction of damage accumulation caused by cyclic loading in metallic airframe components containing small initial flaws, was developed under the Phase I project. The framework contains two novel features that are essential for meeting the objective of quantifying in-service damage with resp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-170
Budget: 09/25/15 - 09/25/17

ABSTRACT:Increasing emphasis on affordability of military systems has led to a number of advances in airframe production. For example, high speed machining (HSM) has made it possible to fabricate thin structures that provide improved performance. However, near-surface plastic strains induced by HSM or surface treatments can lead to excessive com...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-131
Budget: 07/08/10 - 07/08/11

The development of a procedural and computational framework for improved prediction of damage accumulation caused by cyclic loading in metallic airframe components is proposed. This framework will be based on the idea that models formulated for the prediction of crack nucleation, i.e., for the purpose of supporting flaw tolerance analysis, and m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-131
Budget: 07/15/08 - 01/01/10

The principal objective of the proposed Phase I SBIR project is the development of a reliable predictive capability for the evaluation of flaw tolerance in metallic and composite airframe components, given part specifications, material properties, initial flaws, such as voids, inclusions, heterogeneous grain structure and design load spectra. T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-005
Budget: 08/30/07 - 08/30/09

A computational system is required that accelerates the process of dispositioning damage to aircraft in the fleet and serves as a repository for completed repair projects that can be documented, referenced and shared. This system, which we refer to as the Rapid Repair Analysis Tool (RaRAT), will contain validated/certified analysis methods, bot...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-087
Budget: 05/02/06 - 09/02/07

Investigation of the feasibility of development of a mathematical model that will have the capability to provide machine operators with specific guidelines for efficient machining, while minimizing any distortion and warpage, is the main objective of the proposed Phase I effort. The most challenging aspect of this project is the development of a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-005
Budget: 04/05/06 - 08/26/07

A computational system is required that contains validated/certified tools and models that can be readily employed by non-FEM experts. Designers would be able to input parameters, such as panel bay spacing, boundary conditions, skin material and thickness, skin stiffness, flushness requirement, and scarf angles, while the system would automatic...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Washington University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T015
Budget: 08/01/05 - 05/01/06

An investigation of the feasibility of commercialization of the results developed in the Center for Computational Mechanics, Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri under AFOSR Grant No. F49620-01-1-0074 entitled; "Mathematical and Computational Framework for a Virtual Fabrication Environment for Aircraft Components". The proposed project wil...
