Abstract:Hydrogen has been widely used by petroleum refineries in upgrading processes necessary to facilitate the hydrotreating/catalytic hydrocracking of heavy hydrocarbon molecules and the reduction of sulfur content. However, the building of the infrastructure needed to transport hydrogen from central… more
Abstract:In planar Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), separation of the anode and cathode side gases are achieved by hermetic seals. These seals may be rigid, compressive, or compliant. However, the design of improved sealing materials must address two major challenges: (1) mechanical stability of the seals… more
Abstract:Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) will play a key role in a highly efficient, near-zero-emission coal-based power generation system. To achieve the target system efficiency, SOFC anodes must be able to tolerate or mitigate the effect of certain coal contaminant compounds such as hydrogen sulfide,… more

Abstract:ddddThe objective of this project is to develop a strategy to recover micro air vehicles into a flying aircraft. Our solution combines three key technologies that have received significant research attention in recent years, namely towed cable systems, cooperative control, and vision-based terminal… more
Abstract:Procerus Technologies, along with its partner Brigham Young University, propose to develop cooperative control technologies to enable multiple small, unmanned air vehicles (SUAVs) to carry out a mission involving search, tracking, imaging, and localization (STIL). The goal is to carry out these… more
Abstract:A need exists for a reliable, non-destructive, in-situ method to monitor the chemistry of solid rocket motor propellant to determine its health and stability during the service life of the motor. Ideally, the sensor would be able to monitor the chemical components of the motor and not affect the… more
Abstract:The removal of sulfur and CO2 from hydrocarbon streams and power plant effluents is a major problem. Because the sulfur is normally in the form of H2S, this acid gas is scrubbed using aqueous amine solutions that are difficult to control with conventional technology. CO2 scrubbing may soon be… more
Abstract:Investigations into JP-10 combustion chemistry thus far can be characterized as preliminary. The few detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms that have been published are limited in their ability to reproduce experimental data. The combustion chemistry of JP-10 is highly complex and involves hundreds… more
Abstract:This project proposes the development and optimization of a compact air sampler/reactor system for collection of bacterial endospores and conversion of them into semivolatile biological marker compounds for the rapid detection of target airborne pathogens. This involves the integration of a compact… more
Abstract:In the collaborative computing environment, the absence of provenance information (e.g., basic information regarding who created or modified a data product and when, the process used to create the data product, whether two data products were derived from the same raw data) makes it difficult to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A novel, venous window access device (VWAD), anastomotic tool, and minimally invasive, image-guided surgical procedure to provide hemodialysis for patients suffering from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) have undergone ea

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.
