Happy Holidays from N&R Engineering

2016 was an incredible year for us. We worked side-by-side with many renowned clients on projects that innovate and move our industry forward.

Our success could not have been possible without our community, our clients, and our friends. For that, we thank you. After 16 years of being in business, we are able to embrace how far we have come as a company and a partner and cherish your support and involvement.

Below are some of our incredible accomplishments from 2016. To read in more detail, please click on the link below.

2016 N&R List of Accomplishments:

Awarded NASA SBIR PH 1 Project: Design Concepts for Low Aspect Ratio High Pressure Turbines for High Bypass Ratio Turbofans

N&R Engineering worked with NASA Glenn Research Center on a SBIR Phase I project titled: “Design Concepts for Low Aspect Ratio High Pressure Turbines for High Bypass Ratio Turbofans.”

The objectives of this project were:

1) Quantify the benefit of reduced fuel burn from shrouding a Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) High Pressure Turbine (HPT) rotor blade.

2) Determine the increase in component stresses due to shrouding the CMC blade. Shrouding HPT rotor blades becomes feasible when metallic blades are replaced with CMC blades because of the lower density of CMC materials.

Awarded NASA SBIR PH 1 Project:   Fan Duct Heat Exchanger for Turbine Cooling Air:

N&R Engineering worked with NASA Glenn Research Center on a SBIR Phase I project titled: “Fan Duct Heat Exchanger for Turbine Cooling Air.”

The objectives of this project were:

1) The improvement in engine thermal efficiency due to cooling the compressor discharge air, and 2) The increased engine weight due to a fan duct heat exchanger.

Awarded AF SBIR PH 2 Project: Uncertainty Propagation to Modal Parameters and Metrics

N&R Engineering is proud to be continuing our partnership with the Air Force. After completing Phase I:Uncertainty Quantification of Test Derived Model Parameters for Life Prediction of Composite Bolted Joints in an ICME Framework in 2015, we have now begun work on Phase II; advancing the technology developed in Phase I.

In Phase I, our goal was to implement a Bayesian framework for uncertainty quantification of material parameters needed for life prediction of polymer matrix composite (PMC) bolted joints.

Continuing success in conducting Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) of NASA Langley Space and Airborne laser operations.

N&R Engineering is continuing our partnership with NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) on an ongoing project that seeks a high level of public safety for current and future NASA lidar systems.

To do so, N&R is enlisting a Probabilistic Risk Assessment to see how Earth’s inhabitants are being affected by our changing climate.
