ONR awards two PHASE I SBIRs to GEM

Posted on: February 4, 2011 | 0 Comments |

Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM) was recently awarded two Phase I SBIR contracts by the Office of Naval Research to develop a fire simulation and failure response prediction of loaded naval ship structures. GEM along with its team members Virginia Tech, and Middle West State University will implement a time-, stress-, and temperature- dependent material response model and a fire structure interaction model to capture the material softening, characterize a moving boundary within a fire domain, and predict the time to failure. GEM has secured commitments for tool validation support from Virginia Tech and application guidance from NGSB and Navy Lab.
