79 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Simmetrix, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T002
Budget: 09/21/16 - 09/20/17

Ballistic systems operate in flow regimes characterized by high speeds, temperatures and pressures, with reacting multiphase, multi-species fluids and fluid-structure interactions. Substantial progress has been made on methods to simulate the component physics. However, there are technical gaps remaining related to tracking the interacting physi...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: CFD Research Corp.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: DHP16A-001
Budget: 08/22/16 - 03/21/17

Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be util...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Giner, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12c
Budget: 02/12/16 - 11/21/16

Despite incremental improvements in the technology, polyfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) membranes are still not an ideal fuel cell membrane material and their drawbacks (e.g., high cost and low mechanical strength at high temperature) require development of alternative polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) for successful adoption of fuel cells as reli...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Conagen inc

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be the microbial production by fermentation of a group of natural food colorants, called anthocyanins, which will benefit the environment, the food industry, and society as a whole. The fermentation production process provides a "green chemistr...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Intelligent Automation, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T009
Budget: 10/31/15 - 11/01/16

DoD is concerned about circadian rhythm misalignment in military personnel as it is known to affect judgment, psychomotor skills, and may lead to or be triggered by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Correction or maintenance of circadian phase in soldiers participating in military night operations or planning for trans-meridian flights is a...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Simmetrix, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT28
Budget: 09/30/15 - 09/30/16

ABSTRACT: The overall objective of this project is to develop scalable simulation components that effectively model the meso-scale physics of heterogeneous energetic materials subject to dynamic shock loading including matrix debonding, void collapse, and damage due to crystal to crystal interactions, and bridges the meso-scale to the macro-scal...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Simmetrix, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T002
Budget: 09/03/15 - 02/29/16

This project will develop methods, and their implementation into software components, to support the reliable simulation of multiphase ballistic flows of importance to the design of firearms. Building on the advanced meshing technologies and finite element based multiphase flow technologies the project team has developed to date, this project wi...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Computational Sciences, LLC

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T002
Budget: 06/09/15 - 01/15/16

Computational Sciences LLC will collaborate with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to develop and validate a stand-alone computational module that naturally accounts for the effects of turbulence. Such fluctuations and transitions may be associated with compressible flows and boundary layer interactions. The module will be designed for ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Simmetrix, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02a
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Additive Manufacturing (AM), where three-dimensional (3D) objects are created from a digital model by depositing and fusing successive layers of material, provides the ability to produce low-volume, customized products with complex geometries relatively quickly at a moderate cost. However, AM processes sometimes fail to produce acceptable parts,...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Intelligent Automation, Inc.

Institution: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T009
Budget: 08/19/14 - 02/21/15

The Department of Defense is concerned with circadian rhythm misalignments as they are known to affect judgment, psychomotor skills, and can lead to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). At present, there is no comprehensive unobtrusive and easy-to-use solution that measures the circadian misalignment and automatically administers the appropria...
