Abstract:BIODEGRADABLE MICROPARTICLES ARE BEING STUDIED EXTENSIVELY TO DELIVER A WIDE VARIETY OF DRUGS IN A CONTROLLED MANNER. DESIRED RELEASE PROFILES CAN BE ACHIEVED BY JUDICIOUS CHOICE OF BIODEGRADABLE POLYMER, PARTICLE SIZE, AND DRUG LOADING. THESE RELEASE PROFILES MAY LAST FROM WEEKS TO YEARS, DEPENDING… more
Abstract:Two different types of automatic speech recognizers will be evaluated for their effectiveness in an interactive Spanish-language pronunciation-training system. This effort is an extension of previous research on English language systems by this research group, and represents the first of several… more
Abstract:This document covers a proposal by Contamination Studies Laboratories in response to SBIR Topic N95-177. The proposal covers the background Phase 1 research necessary to develop an environmentally acceptable conformal coating stripper, and a prototype conformal coating rework station to'apply… more
Abstract:The objective of this research is to verify a new, lightweight fuel injection (atomizing) technique for heavy fuel engines JP-5, JP-8 and diesel). The primary goal is to provide a very lightweight system, with cold start capability and good performance, that is suitable for Unmanned Air Vehicle… more
Abstract:Because there are differences in the orientation of internal tissues of the breast as prepared forx-ray mammography (compression, standing mode) and as prepared for ultrasound imaging (uncompress-ed, supine), correlation of image data between these two modes is not precise. This project attemptsto… more
Abstract:The proposed work involves assessment of the feasibility of removal of large, concentrated heat fluxes from multi-chip circuit boards in high performance aircraft by means of liquid jet impingement cooling with subcooled change of phase. Previous studies have shown that, unlike many other types of… more
Abstract:GRINDING ROLLS ARE THE HEART OF THE FLOUR MILLING PROCESS. THERE HAS BEEN CONSIDERABLE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ON THE SPEEDS, DIFFERENTIALS, AND CORRUGATIONS OF THESE ROLLS, BUT ABSOLUTELY NONE ON THE COMPOSITION OF THE ROLLS THEMSELVES FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS. THE U.S. IS THE WORLD'S LARGEST USER OF… more
Abstract:A modified engine cycle based on the early intake valve closing of the Miller or the Adkinson cycle is proposed to meet the needs of the future Military Advanced Diesel Engine. The concpet involves the principle of short, effective compression with long expansion ratio to provide high brake thermal… more
Abstract:Although taxol, paclitaxel, is one of the most promising anticancer drugs, the supply of taxol hasmarket demands. To date taxol production is limited and dependent on extraction from bark of yew treChemical synthesis of taxol gives low yield, semi- synthetic production requires a very large… more
Abstract:A large and growing number of the residents of the United States speak English as a secondlanguage. Opportunities for employment, promotion, and education for this population can be negativelyaffected by their inability to communicate effectively in English. Little is known, however, about… more
Abstract:Every year approximately 16,000 to 20,000 school age children sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBIimpairment of cognitive abilities and physical functioning. The innate ability of TBI students to leenvironment is compromised because of their difficulty in receiving, processing, and storing new… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
