  • Publication number: 20240189899
    Abstract: Provided herein are various enhancements for additive manufacturing using titanium and titanium alloy materials. In one example, a method includes inoculating a titanium material with ceramic particles that produce nucleation sites within the titanium material during successive melt and solidification steps of an additive manufacturing process. The nucleation sites promote grain nucleation during solidification of molten titanium material into solid titanium material during the additive manufacturing process.

  • Publication number: 20240159201
    Abstract: A monolithic heat exchanger body for inputting heat to a closed-cycle engine includes heating walls and heat sink, such as heat transfer regions. The heating walls are configured and arranged in an array of spirals or spiral arcs relative to a longitudinal axis of an inlet plenum. Adjacent portions of the heating walls respectively define corresponding heating fluid pathways fluidly communicating with the inlet plenum. At least a portion of the heat sink is disposed about at least a portion of the monolithic heat exchanger body. The heat sink includes working-fluid bodies including working-fluid pathways that have a heat transfer relationship with the heating fluid pathways. Respective ones of the heat transfer regions have a heat transfer relationship with a corresponding semiannular portion of the heating fluid pathways. Respective ones of the heat transfer regions include working-fluid pathways fluidly communicating between a heat input region and a heat extraction region.

    Abstract: A system has an axial field rotary energy device with a housing, an axis and a rotor with a shaft, bearings, rotor disks and permanent magnets. A printed circuit board (PCB) stator is between the rotor disks to define an air gap on each side thereof. A variable frequency drive (VFD) assembly has a VFD housing and first pads coupled to inductors to facilitate heat removal from the inductors. A concave cradle is coupled to a ferromagnetic core and has a same contour as an outer surface of the ferromagnetic core. A second pad is coupled to a rectifier module. A third pad is coupled to switching devices and has pins to align the switching devices with the third pad. Standoffs are coupled to the VFD housing to support a first printed circuit board assembly (PCBA). A second PCBA is mounted to a shield plate above the first PCBA.
