Abstract:Raising pigs has become a specialized agribusiness. Pork producers have a desire to improve their efficiency of production in a cost effective manner. One tool to accomplish this is knowing the weight of the pig as it grows. This knowledge provides greater assistance in managing the feeding… more
Abstract:Improvements in liquid lubricant performacne and life are required for the AIPS advanced military diesel engine. At the 340 degree F oil sump temperature of this engine, the antiwear/anti-oxidant additives in most AIPS candidate lubricants are rapidly decomposed. Several additive functions are thus… more
Abstract:The need for an automated target recognition system that can identify a target from a noisy image, irrespective of the target's orientation or size is identified. A novel pulse-coupled neural network is proposed to meet this need. The first step is to capture the image. Next, a neural network is… more
Abstract:INACCURACY IN AGRICULTURAL CHEMICAL APPLICATION CAUSES INCREASED PRODUCTION COSTS AND RELEASES UNNECESSARY PESTICIDE AND FERTILIZERS INTO THE ENVIRONMENT. APPLICATION CONTROL IS PRIMARILY A MANUAL OPERATION AND ON-THE-GO ADJUSTMENT OF SPRAY OUTPUT FOR SPRAY TARGET OR TRAVEL SPEED VARIATION IS RARE.… more
Abstract:A personal computer based preliminary design system for GeneralAviation aircraft will demonstrate a practical method to designand analyze general aviation aircraft configurations. The programwill provide a powerful framework to support the non-unique
Abstract:This document describes Variable Speed High Frequency Alternators for diesel engine driven gen-sets with variable speeds in range from 600 RPM to 3,600 RPM and HF Alternator for gas turbine engine driven gen-sets with variable speeds in range from 8,700 RPM to 60,000 RPM. This document describes… more
Abstract:The long term care of older Americans is one of the most pressing health care problems facing the nation. Although most long term care is provided by family members, even willing caregivers find themselves unable to continue care when their loved one needs daily assistance with basic activities for… more
Abstract:THE PROPOSED RESEARCH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP ALGORITHMS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL WHICH UTLIZIE BOTH A TIME INTEGRATED AND AN INSTANTANEOUS VALUE OF A SELECTED ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLE. IT IS ASSUMED THAT MAXIMUM ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY WILL BE ACHIEVED WHEN THE SELECTED VALUES FOR INSTANTANEOUS CONTROL… more
Abstract:THE TECHNOLOGY IS BECOMING MATURE AND THE REPAIR ASPECTS ARE NOW BECOMING A MAJOR CONSIDERATION. IT IS EXPECTED THAT PRIOR ATTEMPTS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WILL BE PUT ASIDE AND AN ANSWER WILL BE SOUGHT IN THE APPLICATION OF NEW MATERIALS. A BLANKET MAY BE DEVELOPED THAT HAS THE ABILITY TO CONTROL IT… more
Abstract:Terry Engineering proposes the design of a composite four seat general aviation airplane incorporating innovative occupant protection features. The airplane will utilize cost and weight effective composite structures designed for progressive failure to absorb energy. In addition the forward portions… more
Abstract:AN ULTRA LOW-COST FUEL TANKAGE FOR EXPENDABLE TURBOJET PROPULSION SYSTEMS TO BE USED IN THE LONGFOG MISSILE IS PROPOSED. DESIGN CRITERIA AND TECHICAL OBJECTIVES BASED ON MISSION REQUIREMENTS AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS ARE PRESENTED. TWO CANDIDATE SYSTEMS ARE PROPOSED: ONE FEATURING COMPRESSOR DISCHARGE… more
Abstract:An immediate requirement exists for new techniques for efficient non destructive inspection and repair of composite components such as those that will be used in the "composite weapon" that is under development. IDeally, these operations would be undertaken at the field or the depot level itself,… more
Abstract:Maintenance of Air Force turbine engines is hampered by threaded fasteners which have seized and cannot be removed, particularly in high-temperature turbine sections. Removal of these fasteners for routine maintenance often results in galled, seized or broken parts, with accompanying damage to the… more
Abstract:USING A TIME TESTED, SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTED COMPUTERIZED INTEGRATED CASE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM AS A BASE, WE WILL DESIGN AN INTEGRATED COMPUTER-AIDED SYSTEM ENGINEERING (I-CASE) TOOL, THAT WILL (A) BE READILY ACCEPTABLE TO A WIDE VARIETY OF CASE MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONALS NATION-WIDE (B) CAN… more
Abstract:THREE AREAS OF ACTIVE MISSILE WING RESEARCH WILL BE PURSUED. THE FIRST SECTION WILL EVALUATE THE MATERIALS TO BE USED IN THE INFLATABLE WING SPARS, RIBS, SKINS, PRESSURE BLADDERS AND ACTIVE ELEMENTS. SPECIMENS OF HIGH ORTHOGONALITY COMPOSITES (POLYURETHANE-GRAPHITE) WILL BE CONSTRUCTED ALONG WITH… 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.
