Wind-Tunnel Flutter Tests at Mach Numbers up to 3.0 of Boeing Wing Models for Weapons System 110A

Description: From Summary: "Flutter tests have been conducted on two low-aspect-ratio wing plan forms under consideration by the Boeing Airplane Company for the 110A weapons system. These configurations had three heavy nacelles near the trailing edge, and flutter tests were made both with and without the nacelles. Up to a Mach number of 3.0 the dynamic pressure required for flutter of a wing with nacelles was generally higher than that of a wing without nacelles."

Navy Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) Program: Background and Issues for Congress

Description: This report provides background information and issues for Congress on the Aegis ballistic missile defense (BMD) program, which is carried out by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and the Navy, and gives Navy Aegis cruisers and destroyers a capability for conducting BMD operations. Congress's decisions on the Aegis BMD program could significantly affect U.S. BMD capabilities and funding requirements, and the BMD-related industrial base.

Nonlinear optimization for stochastic simulations.

Description: This report describes research targeting development of stochastic optimization algorithms and their application to mission-critical optimization problems in which uncertainty arises. The first section of this report covers the enhancement of the Trust Region Parallel Direct Search (TRPDS) algorithm to address stochastic responses and the incorporation of the algorithm into the OPT++ optimization library. The second section describes the Weapons of Mass Destruction Decision Analysis Center (WMD-DAC) suite of systems analysis tools and motivates the use of stochastic optimization techniques in such non-deterministic simulations. The third section details a batch programming interface designed to facilitate criteria-based or algorithm-driven execution of system-of-system simulations. The fourth section outlines the use of the enhanced OPT++ library and batch execution mechanism to perform systems analysis and technology trade-off studies in the WMD detection and response problem domain.
