High-Performance, Thermally Insensitive Optics

Silicon Carbide has a unique set of thermal and mechanical properties that make it an ideal material for some reflective optics systems. The difficulty of manufacturing lightweight structures with SiC, however, has limited its use to substrates attached to benches made of more forgiving materials.

Improved Configuration Management in Aerospace Electrical Design

Configuration management of design data is a big challenge in aerospace electrical design. Creating, tracking, and checking the many variants of individual features is a challenge both from the standpoint of electrical integrity -“Does this configuration operate correctly?”; and from the standpoint of data management – “How to manage multiple effectivities without massive data duplication?”

Fluid Structure Coupling Technology

NASA Marshall Space Flight Center's Fluid Structure Coupling (FSC) technology is a highly efficient and passive method to control the way fluids and structures communicate and dictate the behavior of a system. Developed to solve a difficult structural dynamics issue of a national asset, an FSC device weighing less than 200 lbs successfully mitigated a potentially detrimental resonant response of this 650,000 lb structure.

Multiphysics Flow Simulations

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is central to many multiphysics analyses – either to determine the fluid flow itself or as the convective mode for other physics. This webinar will explore laminar, turbulent, and multiphase flows as they interact with structures (FSI), electromagnetics, heat transfer and mass transport. We will demonstrate how easy it is to model and simulate CFD applications with COMSOL Multiphysics. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.

Lora Koenig, Glaciologist, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD

Dr. Lora Koenig, an expert in remote sensing of ice sheets and snow, provided scientific input for the design of the Goddard Remotely Operated Vehicle for Exploration and Research, or GROVER. The autonomous vehicle will rove through Summit, Greenland and monitor how much snow falls over the country’s ice sheets.
