  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. LOW-COST FM-CW DOPPLER MICRO-RADAR RAIN GAGE

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NEW NASA SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING PROGRAMS SUCH AS TRMM, WHICH INTEND TO MEASURE GLOBAL PRECIPITATION, REQUIRE "GROUND TRUTH" CALIBRATION. PRECIPITATION MEASUREMENT IS ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT FROM SHIPS AT SEA, WHICH ARE THE PRIMARY "SEA TRUTH" AVAILABLE OVER MOST OF THE EARTH'S SURFACE. CONVENTIONAL GAGES ARE UNSUITED TO MARINE PLATFORMS. IF SUCCESSFUL, THIS RESEARCH WILL RESULT IN A PRACTICAL AND I ...

  6. LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER FOR FLOW RATE MEASUREMENT IN CONTROL FLUID SYSTEMS

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A NON-INTRUSIVE FLOW MEASUREMENT SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR SMALL DIAMETER, LOW FLOW RATE, AND LOW PRESSURE DIFFERENTIALTHERMAL CONTROL FLUID SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE UTILIZES A CW DIODE BASED LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER (LDV) WHICH CAPTURES SCATTERED RADIATIONFROM MINUTE (

  7. PURIFYING POST-TREATED WATER USING SOLAR/U.V. IRRADIATED PHOTOCATALYTIC MODULE

    SBC: Photo-catalytics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL SOLAR IRRADIATED SEMICONDUCTOR POWDERS TO PHOTOCATALYTICALLY OXIDIZE ORGANIC TOXICANTS PERSISTENT IN THE SPACE STATION'S POST-TREATED WATER, TO THELEVELS SPECIFIED BY NASA MEDICAL SCIENCES DIVISION, IS PROPOSED. THE TOTAL MINERALIZATION OF SEVERAL CLASSES OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS BY THE UV IRRADIATION OF UNDOPED, NAKED AND PLATINIZED TIO2 (ANATASE) POWDERS HAS BEEN ABUNDANT ...

    SBIR Phase II 1988 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. PARALLEL IMAGE COMPRESSION

    SBC: RSI            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT PARALLEL ALGORITHMS FOR IMAGE COMPRESSION. OUR PROPOSED METHODS SATISFY THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA: (1) THEY ARE HIGHLY PARALLEL. WE PLAN A TRIAL IMPLEMENTATION ON THE 16,000 PROCESSOR MPP AT THE NASA GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER. (2) THEY ARE ADAPTIVE; THAT IS, THE CODE BOOK IS DYNAMICALLYMODIFIED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PATTERNS THAT ARE DISCOVERED WITHIN THE IMAGE. ( ...

  9. SPACE SUIT THERMAL CONTROL USING NON-TOXIC MICROENCAPSULATEDPCM TWO-PHASE FLUID

    SBC: Triangle Research and Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A TWO-COMPONENT HEAT TRANSFER FLUID WHICH CONSISTS OF CAPSULES OF MICROENCAPSULATED PHASE-CHANGE MATERIAL (PCM) SUSPENDED IN WATER IS TO BE DEVELOPED FOR APPLICATION TO CLOSED SYSTEM LIQUID-COUPLED HEAT EXCHANGE WITHIN A SPACE SUIT (EMU). THE TWO-COMPONENT FLUID (SLURRY) WILL CONSIST OF APPROXIMATELY 30% BY WEIGHT OF PCM CAPSULES OF APPROXIMATELY 25 MICRONS IN DIAMETER. THE PCM WILL PROBABLYBE EIT ...
