The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection 3/19/2018 The US energy transport pipeline system is a longstanding distribution network with most of its still standing pipes being installed between the 1950s–1970s. Due to degradation mechanisms, such as embrittlement, capable of causing a two-fold reduction in fracture toughness, pipe rupture is a major risk. Current nondestructive ins ...

  2. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume ...

  3. Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Proposal title: Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortu ...

  4. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  5. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  8. New Approaches to Improved PEM Fuel Cell Catalyst Layer

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 17a

    Polymer-electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel-cells are one of the most promising energy conversion technologies for renewable clean energy applications- A major challenge preventing the widespread use and commercialization of PEM fuel cells is achieving high performance with low-loadings of platinum group metal (PGM) catalysts- One of the factors driving performance limitations in the cell is the mass ...

  9. Crack Mitigation for Dry Storage Canisters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 31a

    Welded stainless steel canisters that contain spent nuclear fuel (SNF) at near-marine sites have been found with salts on their outer surface that can produce an aggressive chemical environment that could lead to pitting, stress corrosion cracking (SCC), and potential release of radioactive materials. Welds that are most susceptible to SCC are difficult to reach because they are located inside the ...

  10. Biodegradable Lubricant from Esterified Propoxylated Glycerol

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 15a

    Current hydropower facilities employ a variety of electrical and mechanical equipment that necessitate the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of said equipment. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may be submerged or otherwise c ...
