  1. Highway Capacity Software in Portable Graphical User Interface (GUI) Format

    SBC: Catalina Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) has, for the past 10 years, been the principal tool for applying the analysis methods of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM). The HCS has been DOS-based with a very limited user interface. With a number of new research materials being produced, and an approved plan in place which leads to publication of an HCM 2000 and accompanying software, there is a strong op ...

  2. Disability data management for state and local planning.

    SBC: Integrated Research And            Topic: N/A

    Disability is the nation's largest public health issue; with over 35 million Americans experiencing disability and annual disability-related costs exceeding $170 billion. Planning for the efficient and equitable allocations of state and local rehabilitation services has generally been inadequate, however. Geographic information systems (GIS) approaches have the potential to dramatically improve ...

  4. Development of a Low Cost Process by Which Greater Than Two-Inch Thick Particulate and Whisker Aluminyum Matrix Composites can be Produced

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Discontinuous aluminum metal matrix composites (AL MMCs) have demonstrated promising behavior for ballistic structural armor applications. A fine grain matrix, low-cost processing and prevention of agglomeration of the reinforcement is lacking in current processing to produce Al MMCs. Low-cost processing with extensive flexibility in process control for tailoring reinforcement loading and matrix ...

  5. Low Cost, High Performance TiA1-Si3N4 Valves for High Output Engines

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lightweight materials research and development is extremely important in groundbase vehicles to address problems with fuel economy, power output, emissions and mass reduction. This Phase I program will develop low cost, high performance TiAl-Si3N4 valves for use in both high output military diesel engines and also in commercial automotive engines. While Si3N4 valves have been successful from a p ...

  6. The Development of a Functionally Graded Lightweight Cermet Protective Body Armor

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is no currently available armor that will defeat the most lethal leaded steel-core 7.62 ball ammunition at 5.0 lbs/ft(2) or less. In order to ensure the survivability and provicde maximized mobility of the soldier as well as law enforcement, a protective body armor at less than 5lbs/ft(2) is imperative. The team of MER-Simula has heretofore demonstrated that ceramic-metal combination (cerm ...

  7. Low Cost Synthesis of Nanocrystalline Ceramic Powders for Armor Application

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Ceramic armor is increasingly gaining acceptance as the armor material of choise for defense applications. One way to increase the ballistic performance of ceramic armors is to enhance their fracture resistance br decreasing their gain size (i.e. decreased flaw size) within the microstructure. Nanocrystalline powders, by virtue of their nanometer scale partical size, offer excellent potential to ...

  8. DSP Radiometer with Adaptive Frequency Control for the Retrieval of Atmospheric Temperature and Water Vapor Profiles

    SBC: RINCON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Retrieval of atmospheric temperature and water vapor profiles through the use of a novel radiometer design which uses a unique digital signal processing (DSP) software, known as X-MIDAS, and adaptive frequency control to process radiometric measurements of millimeter wave band oxygen and water vapor emissions is proposed. Temperature and/or water vapor retrieval results are fed back to the radiom ...

  9. Actuation for Compressor Surge Allevation and Stall Line Management

    SBC: Scientific Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Control systems that stabilize the operation of a compressor around the surge line have been demonstrated in controlled laboratory conditions on fixed speed compressors. Jet engine manufacturers are considering this technology for improving engine performance and operability by reducing the compressor surge margins that are currently built into engine control logic. To demonstrate this technolog ...

  10. A Simplified Model of Gas Generator for Active Component Control and Operability Analysis

    SBC: Scientific Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The firm proposes to conduct a research on turboshaft engine control and accessory technologies. The specific technology to be developed a simplified, unsteady-flow dynamic model of an engine gas generator which is suitable for the analysis and design of advanced turbine engine controls. Two motivations of the proposed work are: 1) a lack of efficient model to support the design and simulation o ...
