Award Amount: $50,000.00

SPECTRAL CONTENTS READOUT OF BIREFRINGENT SENSORS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Alex S Redner , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
A transparent material subjected to stresses becomes birefrigent, producing a relative retardation between orthogonally polarized rays that is proportional to the strains. in photoelasticity, this retardation is measured visually, using a variety of compensators, or automatically,using complex… More

DIGITAL IMAGE ANALYSIS SYSTEM FOR MONITORING CRACK-GROWTH AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $423,001.00
Abstract:
Strainoptic technologies, inc., proposes to analyse, design,fabricate, and test a fiber optic photoelastic pressure sensor for high temperature gases. this work will address the so-far virtually intractable problem of obtaining gas pressure data at temperatures up to 1650 degrees celsius. this study… More

A NOVEL APPLICATION OF ULTRASONIC TOMOGRAPHY FOR POROSITY DISTRIBUTION MAPPING IN COMPOSITES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Alex S Redner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Conventional ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation is capable of detecting porosity in resin-matrix composites, but cannot evaluate the porosity distribution, nor even evaluate reliably the proper porosity percentage. this study is proposed to develop an ultrasonic tomography technique for mapping… More
