Abstract : The purpose of this program is to develop the basis for continuing research of interest to the Air Force at the institution of the faculty member; to stimulate continuing relations among faculty members and professional peers in the Air Force to enhance the research interests and capabilities of scientific and engineering educators; and to provide follow-on funding for research of particular promise that was started at an Air Force laboratory under the Summer Faculty Research Program. During Summer 1992, 185 university faculty conducted research at Air Force laboratories for a period of 10 weeks. Each participant provided a report of their research, and these reports are consolidated into this annual report. The following research reports were completed during the summer 1992 apprenticeship program. Among topics were: Point Spread Function Characterization of a Scophony Infrared Scene Projector; Fraction on the Mechanics of a Layer Composite; Velocity and Temperature Measurements in a High Swirl Dump Combustor; Development of an Enhanced Post Run Data Analysis Program for the Integrated Electromagnetic System Simulator; Hard Target Code Assessment and a Qualitative Study of Slide Line Effects in EPIC Hydrocode; Laser Imaging and Ranging(LIMAR) Processing; Neural On-Line Learning in Missile Guidance; Optimal Detection of Targets in Clutter Using an Ultra-Wideband Fully-Polarimetric SAR; Effects on Intensity Thresholding on the Power Spectrum of Laser Speckle; Using X Windows to Display Experimental Data; VLSI Synthesis Guiding Techniques using the SOAR Artificial Intelligence Architecture; A Chemical Investigation of the Oxidative Behavior of Aviation Fuels; Finite Element Analysis of Interlaminar Tensile Test Specimens; The Design of a NO2 Chemiluminescence Test Chamber; Jacobian Update Strategies for Quadratic and Near-Quadratic Convergence of Newton and Newton-like Implicit Schemes; Impact of Quasi-Isotropic Composite Plates by 1/2 Steel Spheres, and 14 others.
