August 26, 2013. NCMS is pleased to announce the release of the two latest Executive Summaries from the LAMP project Ultra-Fine Grained/Nano Aluminum Material for Connecting Rods and Lightweight Material Usage Optimization Using High-Performance Computing.
June 3, 2013. For several years, NCMS and other collaborative leaders have been advocating the use of advanced modeling and simulation tools in product design and manufacturing. These techniques allow innovators to leverage massive computing power and predictive simulations to optimize designs, workflows, and products.
February 18, 2013. NCMS has made available five new project technical reports for purchase.
Project findings are presented from the Enhanced Wiring Integrity System (EWIS) Project. The wiring system is the infrastructure that links electrical, electromechanical and electronics subsystems. Wiring is truly a critical system that requires new maintenance tools and processes.
The Process Substitution Methodology project for composite materials provided immediate benefit to the Department of Defense (DoD) war fighting capability during missions in Afghanistan, Kosovo and Iraq.
A variety of landing gear components are failing without having reached their desired service lives. The failures are due primarily to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and fatigue. The objective of this project was to improve the fatigue life and SCC resistance through the application of laser peening technology to selected components.
