Use of Leading Edge Waves to Increase Lift/Drag Ratio

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: David Nixon, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $98,868.00
Abstract:
One of the goals of NASA's Fundamental Aeronautics "Subsonic Fixed Wing" project is to reduce fuel burn by 25% 5% by 2018. This corresponds approximately to an increase in Lift/Drag ratio of the same magnitude. While the improvement in design tools funded by NASA will undoubtedly help attain this… More

Prediction of Unsteady Transonic Aerodynamics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: David Nixon, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $98,868.00
Abstract:
An accurate prediction of aero-elastic effects depends on an accurate prediction of the unsteady aerodynamic forces. Perhaps the most difficult speed regime is transonic where the motion of the shock wave and its interaction with the boundary layer are dominant factors. In spite of over 40 years… More

Aerospace Systems Efficiency Improvements for Legacy Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: David Nixon, Managing Partner – (650) 964-9956
Award Amount: $149,135.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The expense in operating legacy aircraft is reduced if the aerodynamic performance can be improved. Many of these aircraft were designed before modern prediction methods and flow controls were available and it is probable that operating costs could be reduced if recent advances were used.… More
