Award List:

Non-Destructive Test Method for Rapid Determination of the Chemical Composition of Concrete in Field

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-9583
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
While thorough assessment of concrete chemistry is vital to evaluating the health of (transportation) infrastructure systems, the costly and time-consuming nature of available chemical analysis methods limit their applications. A nondestructive test method will be developed for thorough evaluation… More

SBIR Phase I: Economically Viable High-Performance Concrete Nanocomposites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Jue Lu
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will make complementary use of relatively low-cost graphite nanomaterials and conventional microfibers to realize balanced gains in diverse engineering properties of high-performance concrete. The targeted nanomaterials offer most of the… More

First Generation of Controlled-Release Bacteriocins/Anti-Microbials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-1402
Award Amount: $99,969.00
Abstract:
Food safety has become an increasingly important international concern; it is also a critical issue for the Warfighter who is encountering growing bioterrorism and proliferation of foodborne illnesses. Biopreservation is a technique used to increase shelf life and food safety through natural,… More

Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Michigan State University
Principal Investigator: Jue Lu, Director of Product Development – (517) 485-9583
Award Amount: $149,999.00
RI Contact: Gladys Raymond
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the… More
