  1. RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS.

    SBC: Tribo Materials Dev. Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN WEAR CAN BE ACHIEVED THROUGH LUBRICATION, ALTHOUGH THE LUBRICATORS THEMSELVES ARE A MAINTENANCE PROBLEM. IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AN ANTI-WEAR COATING WHICH CAN BE APPLIED PERIODICALLY TO RAILS TO REDUCE WEAR AND TO ...

  4. RUNWAYS

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RUNWAY-IMPLANTABLE ELECTRONIC SENSOR IS PROPOSED FOR MEASUREMENT OF ICE ACCUMULATION ON AIRPORT RUNWAYS AND NAVIGATION AID STRUCTURES. THE SENSOR OPERATES BY MEASURING PHASE AND FREQUENCY RESOLVED DIFFERENTIAL ELECTRIC FIELD FLUCTUATIONS WITHIN AN AIR/ICE DIELECTRIC LAYER IN RESPONSE TO AN APPLIED VOLTAGE WAVEFORM ON A RUNWAY-IMPLANTED INSUL ATED SENSOR PLATE. THE SIGNIFICANT FREQUENCY DEPENDENC ...

  5. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A MISSION AND AND ENGINE OIL ANALYSIS BY WHICH TRANSMISSION AND ENGINE WEAROUT CAN BE PREDICTED BY MEASURING OIL TEMPERATURE, CAPACITANCE AND PRESENCE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID.

    SBC: Tillman & Comeau Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A MISSION AND AND ENGINE OIL ANALYSIS BY WHICH TRANSMISSION AND ENGINE WEAROUT CAN BE PREDICTED BY MEASURING OIL TEMPERATURE, CAPACITANCE AND PRESENCE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY TREATING THE OIL AS A LOSSY DIELECTRIC ACAND PLACING A TRANSDUCER IN THE OIL. BOTH CONDUCTANCE AND SUSCEPTANCE ON APPROPRIATE FREQUENCIES ARE MEASURED AND ...
