19 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-040
Budget: 04/06/10 - 10/06/10

The ability for engineers to assess the impact of their preliminary design of solid rocket motor (SRM) performance and combustion stability is the focus of this proposal. The SRMs of the future will be designed for increased performance. Since ballistic excursions, instabilities, and sporadic forces on rocket motors have catastrophic results, So...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-056
Budget: 02/15/08 - 02/15/10

New requirements for modern gun systems have greatly increased the propellant flame temperature and reactivity of the combustion products. As a result, thermochemical erosion can greatly reduced the service life of the gun tubes in these systems. Coatings, liners, additives, and deterred propellants have been used to mitigate erosion, with mix...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Brigham Young University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T012
Budget: 09/13/06 - 06/13/07

The demand for higher performance rocket motors at a reduced cost requires continuous improvements in understanding and controlling propellant combustion. Numerous examples are available where seemingly minor modifications and improvements to existing solid rocket systems have caused previously well performing motors to exhibit unexpected and a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-193
Budget: 05/01/06 - 05/01/07

A modeling and experimental program is proposed with the goal of reducing the mean size of metal oxide droplets in the exhaust of solid propellant rocket motors (SRMs). The proposed effort looks at all aspects of metal combustion and discrete phase dynamics which occur in SRMs and offers approaches which have the potential to reduce the mean dr...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Tennessee Space Institute

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

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to determine the feasibility of developing a hydrodynamic combustion stability analysis design tool for rockets, gas turbines, and large engines. As combustors are run at leaner mixture ratios to avoid NOx pollutant issues, vortex liquid rocket engines are designed with swirling f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD03-009
Budget: 07/23/04 - 07/23/06

Liquid rocket engines may be run for repeatedly over extended periods of time, requiring active cooling. An efficient means of cooling LRE nozzles involves using the liquid fuel or oxidizer itself to provide the cooling, often referred to as regenerative cooling. SEA's liquid rocket combustion chamber and nozzle design code, TDK, can predict t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD03-009
Budget: 06/04/03 - 02/04/04

Design of a high performance hydrocarbon liquid rocket engine (LRE) requires a thorough understanding of the heat transfer and cooling requirements of LRE's. An efficient cooling system is crucial in extending engine life and minimizing pumping power. It is essential to be able to accurately calculate the thermal response to ensure that materi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-122
Budget: 12/31/02 - 12/31/04

As a result, thermochemical erosion can greatly reduced the service life of the gun tubes in these systems. Coatings and liners have been used to mitigate erosion, with mixed results. In order to desi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-156
Budget: 12/18/02 - 12/18/04

Solid rocket motors are subject to combustion stability problems when the interior combustion processes interact with the combustion chamber's acoustic modes, resulting in large pressure amplitude fluctuations. While the initial excitation process can be predicted using linear analysis, the instability often enters a "limit-cycle", in...
