  1. A Standard Lidar Interface for Wind and Aerosol Profiling from Commercial

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lidar systems offer considerable promise for the acquisition of a variety of atmospheric variables with very high spatial and temporal resolution from airborne platforms. Ground-based lidar systems have been demonstrated that measure aerosols, water vapor, and ozone, and airborne windsensing lidar have been flown on several military aircraft. The growing number of commercial airliners, however, of ...

  2. Simple Optical Vibration Sensor for Small Objects

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A very simple and low-cost optical sensor for measuring vibrations of mechanically supported thin films and other small objects will be developed. Such measurements are useful in characterizing elastic materials properties. The sensor is based upon the so-called self-mixing effect in lasers, which enables the assembly of velocimeters containing nothing more than a diode laser, a lens, and a sign ...

  3. Neural Net Software for Optimization of Ceramic Grinding

    SBC: Native American Technologies Company            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this Phase 1 project is to demonstrate the ability to develop a neural network model of the ceramic grinding process with fusion of the sensor/process control parameter data. A model will be developed from existing NIST data using artificial neural systems (ANS) with algorithms that have previously been specifically designed to provide good results for manufacturing applications, fo ...

  4. Study of Operation Conditions Including a Refrigerant Composition Heat

    SBC: Spauschus Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Zeotrope refrigerant mixtures have been proposed and used for energy saving. Matching the temperature glide of the refrigerant to the temperature change of the heat sink and source, while simultaneously reducing the pressure difference seen by the compressor will result in significantly improved efficiency. A new cycle based on a mixture cascade combined with a rectifier column has recently been i ...

  5. An Automated Electrophoretic Mobility Instrument for Coagulant Dose Control

    SBC: Clear Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Drinking water filtration plants nationwide are failing to adequately reduce the public health risk due to exposure to sometimes lethal Cryptosporidium and other microbial particle levels. New regulations also will require reduction of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to minimize the risk from potentially carcinogenic reaction by-products resulting from disinfection. Particle and DBP precursors ar ...

  6. A Long-Life, Low-Cost Sorbent for the Conversion of HCl to Chlorine

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. demand for chlorinated hydrocarbons exceeds 15 million tons annually. The production of these chemicals requires chlorine (Cl2) and produces HCl as an unavoidable by-product. Stringent environmental regulations limit the shipment of hazardous wastes like HCl, and the disposal of HCl by neutralization is costly. A consortium of 15 companies is developing an in-process recycling system t ...

  9. EVALUATION OF A NEW FILTER FOR MUNICIPAL AND INDUSTRIA WASTEWATER TREATMENT AMERICAN COMBUSTION, INC.

    SBC: American Combustion Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSED IS EVALUATION OF THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE NEW DESIGN FEATURES OF THE FILTER AND A COMPARISON OF ITS PERFORMANCE WITH CONVEN- TIONAL FILTERS IN TREATMENT OF WASTEWATERS. THE MAJOR SPECIFIC FEATURE OF THE FILTER IS A STONE-GRANULAR MEDIA BED WHICH IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE A NON CLOGGING OPERATION, LONGER FILTRATION RUNS AND GREATER DIRT CAPACITY THA ...

  10. RECOVERY OF CONTAMINANT METALS TO PERMIT RECYCLING OF DUSTS FROM ELECTRIC ARC FURNACES.

    SBC: Cato Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRIC ARC FURNACE DUST IS LISTED AS A HAZARDOUS WASTE. TOTAL PRODUCTION OF THIS DUST IS ESTIMATED TO BE 500,000 TONS AT SOME 77 LOCATION RANGING IN SCALE FORM LESS THAN 1,000 TONS TO OVER 20,000 TONS PER YEAR. A PROCESS IS PROPOSED WHICH MAY PERMIT ON-SITE, SIMPLE RECOVERY OF CONTAMINANT METALS IN THE DUST. THE PROCESS RECYCLES RECYCLES CHEMICAL REAGENTS AND AQUEOUS LEACH , MINIMIZIN COST AND A ...
