  1. SILICON DETERMINATION FOR NUTRITION WITH RESONANCE IONIZATION MASS SPECTROMETRY

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SILICON MAY HAVE METABOLIC ROLES IN ATHEROSCLEROTIC DISORDERS, CONNECTIVE TISSUE AND BONE FORMATION, MORPHOGENESIS IN PRIMITIVE CELLS AND THE AGING PROCESS. HOWEVER, LITTLE IS KNOWN ABOUT THE ROLE OF SILICON IN HUMAN NUTRITION AND METABOLISM. THE ABSENCE OF A RELIABLE ANALYTICAL TOOL FOR TRACE AND ULTRA-TRACE ELEMENTAL AND ISOTOPIC DETERMINATIONS HAS BEEN A MAJOR IMPEDIMENT TO THE ACQUISITION OF K ...

  2. FACILITATED HARVESTING OF CHESTNUTS

    SBC: Empire Chestnut Company            Topic: N/A

    CHINESE CHESTNUTS HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR GREATLY EXPENDED COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION IN THE U.S.A. LOCALLY PRODUCED CHEST NUTS COULD REPLACED IMPORTED CHESTNUTS IN THE MARKETPLACE AS WELL AS EXPLOIT NEW MARKETS. ONE BARRIER TO COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION IS LACK OF HARVEST TECHNOLOGY. WE PROPOSE DETERMINING EFFICACY AND COSTS OF 2 HARVESTING METHODS: 1) ALLOWING RIPE CHESTNUTS TO NATURALLY FALL ONTO TARPS PL ...

  4. MEASURING FERMENTATION PRODUCTS DURING BREAD PROCESSING

    SBC: Technical Foods Consultants            Topic: N/A

    DEVELOPMENT OF ANOVEL ANALYTICAL METHODOLOGY FOR USE IN COM-MERCIAL BAKERIES IS PROPOSED. THIS METHODOLOGY WILL ALLOW PRODUCTION PERSONNEL TO ACCURANTELY MONITOR THE STATUS OF FLOUR/WATER/YEAST ("SPONGE") DURING FERMENTATION AND ENSURE THAT THE PROCESS IS PROCEEDING ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS. THE ANALYSIS WILL BE SIMPLE AND QUICK SO THAT THE FERMENTA--TION PROCESS CAN BE PERIODICALLY SAMPLED AND ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW SOLUTION METHOD FOR ROBOT KINEMATIC EQUATIONS

    SBC: Advanced Control Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR SOLVING ROBOT KINEMATIC EQUATIONS WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH WILL RESULT IN A CLOSED FORM EXPRESSION FOR THE JOINT COORDINATES AS FUNCTIONS OF END EFFECTOR POSITION AND ORIENTATION. THE TECHNIQUE IS NEITHER INTERATIVE NOR ANALYTIC. THE JOINT COORDINATES WILL BE MODELED AS NONLINEAR FUNCTIONS OF THE DESIRED POSITION AND ORIENTATION OF THE END EFFECTOR IN OBJECT SPACE. GIVEN ONLYEMP ...

  6. EXPERT SYSTEM FOR FINITE ELEMENT MODELING

    SBC: Autodesk Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MOST TYPICAL PROBLEMS IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING ARE BEST ANALYZED BY APPROXIMATING AN OBJECT'S GEOMETRY WITH FINITE ELEMENTS. SELECTING AN APPROPRIATE MESHING STRATEGY FOR A GIVEN SOLID REQUIRES KNOWLEDGE ABOUT FINITE ELEMENT THEORY IN GENERAL, AND ABOUT PACKAGE-SPECIFIC DETAILS IN PARTICULAR. THE ADEPT SYSTEM INTEGRATES A TRADITIONAL SOLIDMODELER WITH AN EXPERT SYSTEM EQUIPPED WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE ...

  7. TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTICS

    SBC: Begej Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND FABRICATE AN INNOVATIVE FINGERTIP-SHAPED TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRINCIPAL TASKS TO BE PERFORMED ARE: (1) DESIGN OF VARIOUS MINIATURE TACTILE STIMULATOR ELEMENTS AND EVALUATION OF THE ACTUATION STRENGTH, DISPLACEMENT MAGNITUDE, FREQUENCY RESPONSE RANGE, AND THERMAL LOADING CHARACTERISTICS, (2) CONSTRUCTION OF ...

  8. ASYNCHRONOUS MULTILEVEL ADAPTIVE METHODS FOR PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS ON THE NAVIER-STOKES COMPUTER

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS CURRENTLY SUPPORTING A VERY PROMISING PROJECT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH-POWERED MULTIPROCESSOR SYSTEM, THE NAVIER-STOKES COMPUTER (NSC). WHILE MULTILEVEL ALGORITHMS ARE BEING STUDIED IN THE NSC ENVIRONMENT FOR SOLVING THE ELLIPTIC EQUATIONS THAT ARISE IN DISCRETIZING INCOMPRESSIBLENAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS, NO RESEARCH HAS YET FOCUSED ON LOCAL ADAPTIVE SCHEMES FOR THIS PURPOSE. THIS IS IMPOR ...

  9. SYMBOLIC IMAGERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (SIMS)

    SBC: Command Control, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF IMAGERY FOR THE PRESENTATION OF DATA IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMMON. INTEGRATING IMAGE DATA WITH GRAPHIC DATA STRUCTURES AND FEATURE INFORMATION IS VERY DIFFICULT USING TRADITIONAL DIGITAL REPRESENTATIONS. SEPARATE IMAGE AND FEATURE INFORMATION DATABASES ARE COMMONLY USED, BUT THE ANALYST IS REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN TWO OR MORE DATABASES AND TO PERFORM INTEGRATION OF THE INFORMATION IN HIS ...

  10. EFFECT OF GRAVITY ON FOAM DECAY

    SBC: H & N Instruments Inc            Topic: N/A

    FOAMS ARE USED IN MANY INDUSTRIES, YET THE MECHANISMS THAT CONTROL FOAM STABILITY ARE NOT WELL UNDERSTOOD. THE DECAY OF FOAM IS CONTROLLED LARGELY BY OSTWALD RIPENING OF LARGE FOAM CELLS AT THE EXPENSE OF SMALL FOAM CELLS. THE DECAY MECHANISM IS COMPLICATED BY GRAVITATIONAL EFFECTS. THE USE OF A NOVEL METHOD TO MEASURE FOAM STABILITY IS PROPOSED. BY MEASURING HEAD SPACE PRESSURE OVER A FOAM IN ACL ...
