Internal-curing (IC) materials are expected to minimize cracking in cement structures compared to traditional superficial wetting. We compared the performance of three IC materials relative to critical parameters.
Our team’s goal was to recreate ELCAS-M components in modern CAD software to allow the Navy to determine the ELCAS-M’s ability to bear new equipment loads. We also redesigned the ELCAS-M lifting lug, a key component in this modular system.
We analyzed the problem of integrating renewable energy sources into existing power grids on Navy Bases, to decrease reliance on fossil fuels, without compromising continuous operation and mission success.
Our team developed a prototype tethering system for small buoys that incorporates an optical fiber cable, stiff enough to alleviate excessive strain caused by ocean waves and currents, but soft enough to keep the buoy afloat.
