Abstract:ONE OF THE KEY DIFFICULTIES FOR STUDENTS WITH LIMITED UPPER EXTREMITY COORDINATION IS THE RETRIEVAL OF APPROPRIATE MATERIALS WITH WHICH TO STUDY. CONVENTIONAL FILING SYSTEMS ARE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR USE WITH A MOUTHSTICK AND ATTEMPTS AT FILE SYSTEMS BASED ON THE "LAZY SUSAN" CONCEPT PRESENT A NUMBER… more
Abstract:Medication non-compliance is one of the greatest problems associated with maintaining the health of the elderly. Studies state that up to 23% nursing home and 10% of hospital admissions of the elderly are due to poor medication compliance. Current attempts to electronically augmented compliance have… more
Abstract:The long term objective is development of ultrasonic modules for laparoscopic surgery suitable for the minimally invasive removal of cancerous tissue. Modules will operate on the principle of tissue emulsification using ultrasonic oscillations, produced by a vibrating titanium tube, coming in… more
Abstract:THE PLANNED PROJECT TO DEVELOP A VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENTAL WORKSTATION FOR ENERGY EDUCATION (VEWEE) WILL INCLUDE DEMONSTRATING VIABILITY OF A VIRTUAL REALITY WORKSTATION FOR SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES USING MULTISENSORY FEEDBACK. THE VEWEE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE COMPUTER GENERATED IMAGES… more
Abstract:THE PROBLEM IS THAT MARINE MAMMALS ARE GETTING KILLED AT AN ALARMING RATE. RECENT EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THAT HALF OF ALL (NONCALF) RIGHT WHALE DEATHS ALONG THE ATLANTIC COAST RESULT FROM HUMAN ACTIVITIES (KRAUS 1990). COLLISIONS WITH COMMERCIAL VESSELS MAY BE A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE LACK OF RECOVERY OF… more
Abstract:ADVANCES IN SENSORS, ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTERS, AND INSTRUMENTATION IN GENERAL ARE FOSTERING A NEED FOR SIMILAR ADVANCES IN THE OUTPUT NOISE PERFORMANCE OF THE SUPPLIES THAT PROVIDE POWER TO THESE DEVICES. TO ENSURE THAT THE POWER SUPPLY NOISE DOES NOT DEGRADE OR LIMIT THE PERFORMANCE OF PRESENT… more
Abstract:WE WILL DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT AN AUTOMATED DATA ENTRY SYSTEM TO SUPPORT THE COLLECTION OF UNIFORM AND RELIABLE INFORMATION ON ALL CHILDREN, UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE TITLE IV-B/IV-E AGENCY, WHO ARE IN FOSTER CARE OR WHO ARE ADOPTED. PHASE I FOCUSED ON THE INITIAL STAGES OF SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT… more
Abstract:LEAD IN SOIL MUST BE TREATED IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE EXPOSURE RISK ASSOCIATED WITH LEAD MIGRATION AND LEAD BIOAVAILABILITY. SINCE THE LEVEL OF LEAD IN CONTAMINATED SOIL IS USUALLY VERY LOW, A COST-EFFECTIVE AND SAFE LEAD FIXATION TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED. THIS RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE A NOVEL LEAD… more
Abstract:This research will develop thin insulating coatings for implant devices that are essentially impermeable to water and tissue fluids. Thin insulating coatings will be fabricated by a low-temperature sputtering process. High quality coatings will be formed into a specially engineered multilayer… more
Abstract:This program will develop a method of growing bulk ternary compound semiconductors of uniform composition. The target material of In(1-x)Ga(x)As was chosen because of its immediate use in the growth and fabrication of very high speed HEMT devices. The method should be applicable to other ternary… more
Abstract:An eight month study is proposed on the fundamentals of a new system of subsurface barrier called Hydrodynamic Enhanced Barrier System (HEBS). The mechanism of HEBS is that it can, via oscillatory motion of working fluids or steady state circulating flow, remove contaminants from groundwater… more
Abstract:THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE WIND SHEAR DETECTION AND WARNING SYSTEM (WSDWS) IS PROPOSED FOR IMPROVING THE SAFETY OF AERONAUTICAL MISSIONS DURING TAKEOFF AND LANDING. THE WSDWS WILL BE AN UPGRADED VERSION OF AN EXISTING PATENTED SYSTEM WITH EMPHASIS ON RAPID DEPLOYMENT FOR MILITARY OPERATIONS. THE… more
Abstract:ADVANCED AEROSPACE PROGRAMS REQUIRE MATERIALS CAPABLE OF OPERATING IN TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS EXCEEDING 2000OF. TO ASSESS THE THERMAL AND STRUCTURAL PERFORMANCE OF THESE MATERIALS, TESTING MUST BE PERFORMED AT HIGH TEMPERATURES. NEW TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO MONITOR AND ASSESS MATERIAL PERFORMANCE… more
Abstract:The development of an instrument for mapping the infrared radiance field from interior surfaces of turbine engine exhaust cavities is proposed. The instrument will consist of a cooled, rotating optical head that will traverse along the axis of the engine exhaust, mapping the infrared radiance from… more
Abstract:Projectiles launched at hypervelocities at the ballistic ranges of Arnold Enginering Development Center are subject to extreme loads of over 100,00 g's and occasionally fail. The ultimate material strength, in practice, limits the maximum speed to which the projectile can be launched and still… more
Abstract:HIGH-VELOCITY WATERJETS AND ABRASIVE WATERJETS HAVE BECOME VIABLE PRECISION CUTTING TOOLS FOR AWIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS. THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THE USE OF ARGON LIQUID OR GAS CUTTING JETS FOR FABRICATING THE METAL FUEL PINS USED IN THE PYROMETALLURGICAL FUEL CYCLE OF ADVANCED REACTOR CONCEPTS.… more
Abstract:The proposed study will evaluate the feasibility of adapting medium format metric camera systems for aerial photogrammetry from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platform. The new generation of UAVs have the capacity to carry medium format (up to 5 cm x 7 cm) metric cameras suitable for precision… 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.
