|20150316001||Pulse Detonation Engine with Variable Control Piezoelectric Fuel Injector - A pulse detonation engine including one or more fuel injectors comprising one or more piezoelectric driving stacks wherein a flow control member of each injector is driven directly by the one or more piezoelectric stacks without additional amplification means or interposing elements while a flow area of the nozzle is variably adjustable to deliver controlled flow rates in a desired flow profile to improve engine performance and reduce emissions. The pulse detonation engine configured to support variable mission and operational requirements including delivery of required thrust using specific fuel types and with power and performance of the pulse detonation engine variably adaptable. The fuel injectors associated with the pulse detonation engine configure to deliver specified flow rates with minimal linear movement of the flow control member. The injector and drive electronics configured to deliver higher frequency operation and response with increased operational stability.||11-05-2015|
|20150285198||Injector Valve with Miniscule Actuator Displacement - An injector comprising one or more piezoelectric driving stacks wherein a flow control member of the injector is driven directly by the one or more piezoelectric stacks without additional amplification means or interposing elements while a flow area of the nozzle is variably adjustable to deliver controlled flow rates in a desired flow profile to improve engine performance and reduce emissions. The injector is configured to support required flow rates with minimal linear movement of the flow control member. The injector and drive electronics are configured to deliver higher frequency operation and response with increased operational stability due to minimal response lag.||10-08-2015|
|20150127311||Computer Implemented Apparatus and Method for Finite Element Modeling Using Hybrid Absorbing Element - An apparatus and method use a hybrid absorbing element defined by a novel implementation of perfectly matched layer and infinite element concepts to model time-domain and frequency domain wave propagation finite element calculations. The hybrid absorbing element comprises three or more semi-infinite facets providing an essentially reflectionless interface for outgoing waves. Perfectly matched layer conditions are coupled to finite-element wavefield computation regions and infinite element conditions, which effectively disperse advancing waves at infinity. The disclosed apparatus and method result in the rapid attenuation of waves arriving at arbitrary angles, leading to elimination of reflection artifacts. The hybrid absorbing element modeling approach reduces memory usage and related computational costs, especially when applied to large three-dimensional models and simulations and to large-scale simulations on massively parallel computing structures, cloud resources, or similar clustered or distributed compute and storage resources. The hybrid absorbing element can use a lumped, diagonal inertial operator for compatibility with explicit time-domain computations.||05-07-2015|
|20090212127||FUEL INJECTOR WITH SINGLE CRYSTAL PIEZOELECTRIC ACTUATOR STACK - One embodiment includes a piezoelectric fuel injector using single crystal piezoelectric materials to improve the capabilities and performance of fuel injectors using a piezoelectric material stack. Another embodiment includes a fuel injector with a single crystal piezoelectric actuator stack that exceeds one or more of the capabilities (e.g., stroke, force, bandwidth, size) of the standard piezoceramic actuator stacks designed for the common rail fuel injector systems. Yet another embodiment includes an actuator stack made from single crystal piezoelectric material.||08-27-2009|
