Abstract:ABSTRACT: USAF Landing gear are subject to extreme corrosion. Processes are used to extend component life without introducing additional modes of failure. Corrosion can still occur if compromised by wear or damage. A breakthrough processing Diatomaceous Earth (DE) was patented by Oak Ridge… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: When the inner diameter (ID) of a landing gear aluminum alloy outer cylinder is damaged or worn there is very little that can be done to restore the ID of the cylinder. Consequently, the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. A coating repair for aluminum alloy… more
Abstract:Additive manufacturing technology creates objects using a sequential layering process that directly contrasts with the traditional subtractive approaches commonly used to manufacture the majority of fabricated components. The additive manufacturing technology can be used anywhere throughout the… 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.
