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 the summer of 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 reports were completed in the Air Force 1992 Summer Apprenticeship program at the Wright Laboratory. An Investigation of the APTAS System; Evaluation of Hydrocode Strain Contours by Microhardness testing; A study of the C and BASIC Computer Languages as well as an In Depth Discussion of Certain Mathematical Concepts; Electrical Analysis of YBa2Cu3O7-x Superconducting Thin Films and Bulk Samples; Computer Resources: Examining the Workings of a Computer Network; Forced Liquid Cooling of a Non-Flush Simulated Electronic Chip; Using Mathematical Concepts to Produce Three Dimensional Computer Graphics; Image Analysis: A Fractal Application; Analysis of Fractal Image Compression and Decompression; Video Documentation of the Patran to Epic Link; Construction and Design of a Regulated Power Supply; Preparing High Tech Aircraft for Testing, Using Computer Applications; The Creation of a Graphics Workstation; A Comparison of Concept Recognition Skills; Characterization and Analysis of 1,3,5,5-Tetranitrohexahydropyrimidine; A Study of the Importance of Sled Tests to Crew Escape Engineers; Summer Research Including Hypermedia Documents; Monte Carlo Star Detectability and Micro-G Calibration Studies; Video Documentation of EPIC Capabilities; and 30 others
