A Unified Instrumentation Test examining the The fundamental purposes of conducting the test were to (a) identify and solve compatibility issues among the techniques that would inhibit their simultaneous application in a wind tunnel, and (b) demonstrate that simultaneous use of advanced instrumentation techniques is feasible for increasing tunnel efficiency(More)
– Significant advances have been made to non-intrusive flow field diagnostics in the past decade. Camera based techniques are now capable of determining physical qualities such as surface deformation, surface pressure and temperature, flow velocities, and molecular species concentration. In each case, extracting the pertinent information from the large(More)

This paper discusses recent developments in rapid technology assessment resulting from an active collaboration between researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) and the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). This program targets the unified development and deployment of global measurement technologies(More)
Numerical modeling of loss mechanisms resulting from non-uniform illumination in multijunction concentrator solar cells" (2014). ABSTRACT Quasi-3D distributed emitter models utilizing a unit cell-based methodology have been successfully applied to the analysis of lateral current flow in solar cell emitter layers. However, the analysis of the specific loss(More)
repair mission (STS-125). The purpose of this paper is to describe the systematic approach used by the Hypersonic Thermodynamic Infrared Measurements team to develop and implement a set of mission planning tools designed to establish confidence in the ability of an imaging platform to reliably acquire, track and return global quantitative surface(More)
Restoration of sensibility to the traumatized finger can be a difficult problem. Two patients with insensibility to the volar distal finger after trauma underwent delayed digital nerve repair. In the first patient, the dorsal branch of the radial proper digital nerve was approximated to the distal stump as a pedicle to span a 12-mm gap resulting from(More)
