Velocity fluctuations

Direct numerical simulation (DNS) is being used to develop an erosive burning model of the booster. DNS resolves all relevant turbulent scales, and is capable of resolving several primary flames, such as the Ammonium perchlorate (AP) decomposition flame, and the decomposed AP and binder fuel...

Probabilistic Design Analysis Image

Probabilistic design analysis (PDA) is a methodology to assess component reliability for given failure modes in complex systems. PDA involves the modeling of the probability of integrated system failures which then can be used to focus design improvements for improved operational safety. UAH...
