  1. N/A

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 2001 Department of Commerce
  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 ...

  3. A New Nanocomposite Rubber Liner for Tires

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

    Halobutyl rubber is used as an inner liner for tubeless automotive tires because of its low permeability to gases and good compatibility with other tire materials. However, at high pressures and over prolonged time periods, tires leak. Factors such as under-inflation and heat are major contributors to tire damage. While the tires are slowly losing air pressure, consumers also do not maintain c ...

  4. Recycling of Portland Cement Concrete

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to investigate a concept of a shock producing component that will be the basis of a machine to remove deteriorated concrete pavement. The principal has been proven feasible, but further demonstration has to be accomplished to proceed with application and expense of continued development of a Road Remover/Recycler. This machine will move continuously on a lane width of pavement a ...

  5. NESSI (New England Shipwreck Survey Initiative) Geographic Information System (GIS)

    SBC: Stefan Claesson & Associates            Topic: N/A

    Submerged archaeological sites contain a significant part of our historical legacy-one that is increasingly threatened by development, vandalism and natural forces. In recognition of that legacy, the New England Shipwreck Survey Initiative (NESSI) has been planned in order to identify and preserve the maritime archaeological resources of the region. A computerized database, specifically a Geogra ...

  6. Converting Sawmill Waste Stream Material Into Higher Value Solid Wood Products

    SBC: Auburn Machinery, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need to increase yield and reduce waste in most sawmills. The conversion of waste stream material into higher valued products offers simultaneous solutions to both needs. However, few recovery operations exist and data for study cannot be found. Consequently, few sawmills believe that converting waste stream material into higher valued products offers a solution. Millions of recoverable ...

  7. Harvest, Process and Market Alaskan "Devil`s Club" Oplopanax horridum

    SBC: David C. Smith            Topic: N/A

    China uses more Asian devil's club (Oplopanax elatus) as a medical herb than all Alaskan agricultural export production combined. We are evaluating the harvesting, processing and marketing of the Alaskan devil's club (Oplopanax horridum) that is primarily owned or controlled by Native Alaskan residents in 13 coastal communities. The Japanese call this plant (Echinopanax japonicus nakai) and the Ch ...

  8. A Novel Electrochemically Regenerable Ion-Exchange System for Nitrate Removal


    A novel electrochemically activated and deactivated anion-exchange system is proposed for nitrate removal from groundwater and wastewater, as well as other applications. It will combine the best features of liquid-liquid extraction and anion-exchange using resins, while avoiding many problems inherent in these systems, and providing additional benefits. It will employ liquid-liquid extraction usin ...

  9. Waste-Wood Cellulose Soil Binders for Construction Site Erosion Control


    Construction projects generate 10 to 20 times more erosion per acre compared to neighboring agricultural activities. Wind erosion and production of dust is considerable at large construction sites, and water erosion clogs local sewers and silts local streams and rivers. Construction of buildings generates large quantities of waste wood which burdens landfills. It is proposed to convert waste const ...

  10. An Expert System for the Optimization of Mussel Raft Aquaculture

    SBC: Great Eastern Mussel Farms, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In order to meet increasing demands for high quality mussels, a new technology of mussel raft aquaculture is developing in Maine, where there is a need to improve site selection, and develop best management practices for mussel farms. Through a combination of modeling and field data collection, we will develop an expert system for the optimization of mussel raft aquaculture. In Phase II, we will p ...
