  1. Ballast Seismic Property Analyzer (BSPA) for Railway Substructure Modulus and Assessments

    SBC: Earth Science System LLC            Topic: 190FR1

    This project involves building and demonstrating a wireless seismic system for assessing the condition of railroad ballast.The system is designed for portability and ease of use by non-specialized personnel. It is based on the well-known multi-channel analysis of surface waves (MASW) method. The system consists of a seismic source and an array of receivers. The source will be empirically optimized ...

  2. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  6. Digital Waveform-Based System for Acoustic Emission Measurement for Nondestructive Testing of Structural Steel

    SBC: Digital Wave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Wave Corporation proposed to develop a novel nondestructive testing (NDT) system for high speed acquisition and analysis of wide band acoustic emission (AE) waveforms. The system will provide the capability to detect, identify and locate crack growth in loaded steel structures. This system will incorporate the new high fidelity sensor developed by the Federal Highway Administration and a ...

  7. EMBEDDED PAVEMENT STRESS SENSORS CONTAINING PIEZOELECTRIC COMPOSITES

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER MATERIALS, INC. (FMI) PROPOSES SENSORS WHICH CAN BE EMBEDDED IN PAVEMENT TO MEASURE STRESS AND STRAIN FROM TRUCKS PASSING OVER AT SPEEDS UP TO 60 MPH. THESE SIMPLE, DURABLE SENSORS WILL BE MADE FROM PIEZOELECTRIC COMPOSITES WHICH ACT AS PASSIVE SENSORS AND DEVELOP A CHARGE PROPORTIONAL TO THE APPLIED PRESSURE. THE CHARGE IS CONVERTED TO A VOLTAGE WHICH IS RECORDED ON NEARBY EQUIPMENT. THE PH ...
